Each kind of integrity is essential to other kinds of integrity. When we seek integrity with our whole being, it grows exponentially, because our existence with integrity is the basis of its growth. When we seek isolated goals with our whole being, we disintegrate exponentially, because decay is proportional to the disintegrative isolation in which we live. Excommunication is disintegration. Communion and dialogue are integration. Excommunication can not be a means to integrity with integrity. Open and honest communion and dialogue are not steps towards disintegration, and can not be regarded as evil with integrity. We cannot participate in excommunication, communion, dialogue; i.e., disintegration/integration in objective ways. To demonstrate such realities we must participate in them. We cannot demonstrate them convincingly without participating in them. A compulsive dedication to objectivity inhibits participation with our whole being, and so inhibits integration and integrity.
