True knowledge is apprehended in the process of sharing our personal experiences in cooperative ventures. In the absence of true sharing of personal experiences in cooperative ventures we learn little and know less. When we do not feel safe in sharing openly and honestly what we know through our own experiences; we learn little and know less, and are defensively insecure. True knowledge is not an abstract possession which we can apprehend, package, own and control on our own as isolated individuals in secrecy. When in alienation we feel and think otherwise we become trapped in alienative systems of false knowledge by which we manipulate ourselves and each other as we play our collusive games of mutual self deception and addictive technologies. If we do not honestly know how and what each other person thinks, feels, and expects---we cannot make wise informed decisions upon which to act in integrative cooperations. Then we cannot be people of integrity working within integrative communities---and we and our communities disintegrate. If because of our fears of each other we cannot honestly experience, name, describe and share with each other who we are in being true to ourselves and to each other; there is then no reliable basis for cooperation and integrity within our communities. To be people and communities of integrity we need to transcend our patterns of living lives of fear---by honestly experiencing, naming, describing and sharing with each other who we are in our fears of ourselves and each other. If in fear we cannot articulate what we know to and for each other, we are not likely to articulate what we know for ourselves; and so we are unable to share what we know with each other. Our knowledge is likely to remain subconscious and we are likely to remain unconscious of each other's true natures. Such ignorance is likely to lead to tragically mislead beliefs, convictions, decisions and actions. If we do not deal openly and honestly with the dilemmas inherent in the above facts of life, then we cannot achieve that which we yearn for and seek---no matter how sophisticated our technologies, scholarship and formal methods may be.
