Denial leads to repression and the selective neglect of experiences, truths, perceptions, etc. To lie is literally to affirm what one knows not to be true, but in a broader sense to act as if some falsehood is true, or to act as if some truth were not true and so to mislead in an indirect way which may more effectively conceal the truth than would an overt lie. Members of a collusions participate in a game of mutual self deception of which they are not conscious, so they do not lie in the literal sense. Yet, participants in a collusion live lives which in a broader sense are lies, for their lives are dedicated to the repressions of truths which they can not bear to face, and to the affirmation of falsehoods which they wish were true. Their games of mutual self deception and mutual encouragement in their self deception are dishonest to the core of their being as they are. Lies lack integrity and lead to disintegration, for they cut the integrative strands of coherent truth. Falsehoods lead to confusion and undermine the ability to cooperate to maintain communal integrity. Repressions of a keen sense of awareness of taboo experiences undermines the ability to learn from experiences and to act wisely in terms of perceived natural consequences of previous decisions and actions. "Lie" as a key word points to all such ways in which dishonesty and misleading behavior undermines personal and communal integrity in communication, memory, thought and human relationships.
