Collusive realities which are the creations of our collusive games of mutual self deception are not real in any robust way. We are in constant fear that they will evaporate in the presence of open and honest dialogue about them within communities of integrity with people of integrity; so we repress such dialogue. Thus addicts and their codependent supporters try to avoid/manipulate such communities and people---out of fear that their addictive fixes will be found to be futile; i.e., not honestly robust. Our most sophisticated objective realities are often creations of our sophisticated objective paradigms and isolated scientists. They are not robustly real to most people. Very few people participate openly and honestly in informed discussion of our most sophisticated scientists' objective realities. Such realities are not highly valued nor regarded as important realities by most common people, and so are not robust in the face of human limitations in time, money, attention, and effort. Religious realities are often the dishonest creations of the fears and manipulations of addictive religious leaders---and so are not robustly real. Such leaders do not encourage open and honest dialogue about their religious creations---out of fear that their creations are not robustly real and will evaporate in the presence of the work of the Holy Spirit within open and honest dialogue among people of integrity within communities of integrity.
