An absence of community consensus as to what that significance is absent, bears further significance. If X is repressed through the taboos of a collusion, the absence of community support will be invisible to members of the community who are the participant/victims in the collusion. The significance of the absence is the presence of the collusion, as is the absence of the consensus as to what that is significant is absent. The absence of community support for activity X may signify a simple ignorance of the power of X to promote both personal and community integrity. There may be no collusion. A simple revelation may initiate community support for activity X. The significance of the absence may not always be of the same kind. Care must be take not to interpret the significance of the absence in purely prejudicial ways. The absence of community support of activity X may signify a community decision that in the face of limited community resources there are other activities which better qualify for support. That judgment may be misguided, due to ignorance, due to faulty logic, due to self-serving, etc. Perhaps the community is mislead by a faulty paradigm; e.g., one focusing in a misleading way upon self, ego, soul, religiosity, etc. Language may blind communal thought to the extent that the community will not provide support to integrative behavior. In the absence of words for some realities people concerned with those realities may not be able to attract communal support. The community may be the victim of language driven misconceptions, and not be able to conceive of certain realities because it does not have the words for the appropriate concepts. A community may not offer support because there has been no overt or recognized tacit request for support; yet would offer support were there such a request. Some times those who need support need to take the initiative to ask for support. In the absence of a request there is ignorance, indifference and/or diversion which stands in the way of offering support. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
