Any attack which is intended to render another organism or person helpless (and so vulnerable to further disintegration) is likely to be focused upon such a point of vulnerability---where damage can most easily be inflicted. Disintegrative people are preoccupied with identifying and attacking points of vulnerability in others---and so are preoccupied with defending their own points of vulnerability against attack. For disintegrative people the primary issues of life and death are issues of attack, defense, threats, fears, anxieties, fixes, fixations, technologies, sophistication, and controls. Their lives are focused almost exclusively upon such issues; and so they focus upon excluding from their lives other people who are like them and so must be preoccupied with issues of attack, defense, threat, fear, anxiety, fixes, fixations, technology, sophistication, and control. Thus they all become centers of personal and communal disintegration. In spite of often being highly intelligent and educated; they cannot find a way out of their fear-full prisons of endless technological attacks upon points of vulnerability. They cannot resolve their conflicts, and so engage in endless coercion and violence. Points of vulnerability include particular parts of the boundaries between organisms and their environment; their skins; e.g., eyes, ears, nose, neck, stomach, genitals. Such points are not the only possible points of vulnerability. Defects in organisms can make them vulnerable to attack. For humans the points of vulnerability may entail defects pertaining to language, communication, thinking, emotions, conformity, self respect, reflexivity, objectivity, etc. Humans are vulnerable to various forms of failures, criticism, ridicule, judgements, punishments, exclusions, condemnations, and excommunications. Lives which are focused upon points of vulnerability and the defense of points of vulnerability are disintegrative. In contrast, people and communities which enjoy personal and communal integrity are not focused upon points of vulnerability, or upon the defense of points of vulnerability. Their lives are focused upon integrative ways, not upon disintegrative ways. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
