Such sophisticated people often fall into the trap of believing that technical sophistication, objectivity, and their own powers of manipulation---empower them to meaningfully transcend and ignore reflexive truths. They regard reflexive truths as being biased. They ignore such truths and become ignorant of them. They limit their attention to narrow areas of scientific, technocratic, objectified, de-personalized research and technology. They sell their souls, spirits, integrity, and beings for scientific and technological fixes and fixations. (See the previous essay.) (c) 2005 by Paul A.
