Some objective truths are not integrated into personal living. Many objective truths originate in the separation of persons from objects in order to be objective. Such objective truths often are not personally embodied in fully integrated persons, but reside as objective messages in abstract languages which are meaningful only to objectified persons. The integrative value of a truth resides in the apprehension of the truth in the personal decisions and actions of persons. Such apprehension of the truth in the personal decisions and actions of persons depends as much upon the state of consciousness and being of the person apprehending and/or acting upon the truth, as upon the ensymbolment of the truth in some language. The integrative value of a truth grows and resides in a relationship between the truth as represented in a communication, and the state of consciousness of the one receiving the communication. Thus truths of great integrative value are not objective realities residing outside of persons. Integrative truths are relational realities helping to integrate persons and communities.
