If so, how? First we must distinguish between disintegrative realities and comparable integrative realities---where both kinds of each reality do exist. Not all kinds of disintegrative realities have a corresponding integrative kind of reality. Not all kinds of integrative realities have a corresponding disintegrative reality. Does each of the following kinds of realities exist? INTEGRATIVE FEAR DIS-INTEGRATIVE FEAR INTEGRATIVE ANXIETY DIS-INTEGRATIVE ANXIETY INTEGRATIVE GUILT DIS-INTEGRATIVE GUILT INTEGRATIVE SHAME DIS-INTEGRATIVE SHAME INTEGRATIVE EMBARRASSMENT DIS-INTEGRATIVE EMBARRASSMENT INTEGRATIVE ESTRANGEMENT DIS-INTEGRATIVE ESTRANGEMENT INTEGRATIVE ALIENATION DIS-INTEGRATIVE ALIENATION INTEGRATIVE ANIMOSITY DIS-INTEGRATIVE ANIMOSITY INTEGRATIVE ENMITY DIS-INTEGRATIVE ENMITY INTEGRATIVE ENEMIES DIS-INTEGRATIVE ENEMIES INTEGRATIVE LOVE DIS-INTEGRATIVE LOVE INTEGRATIVE HOPE DIS-INTEGRATIVE HOPE INTEGRATIVE SEXUALITY DIS-INTEGRATIVE SEXUALITY INTEGRATIVE INTIMACY DIS-INTEGRATIVE INTIMACY INTEGRATIVE HONESTY DIS-INTEGRATIVE HONESTY INTEGRATIVE FRIENDSHIP DIS-INTEGRATIVE FRIENDSHIP INTEGRATIVE OBEDIENCE DIS-INTEGRATIVE OBEDIENCE INTEGRATIVE ACCEPTANCE DIS-INTEGRATIVE ACCEPTANCE INTEGRATIVE REJECTION DIS-INTEGRATIVE REJECTION INTEGRATIVE ARROGANCE DIS-INTEGRATIVE ARROGANCE INTEGRATIVE EXCLUSIVITY DIS-INTEGRATIVE EXCLUSIVITY We may be misled by believing that some of the above kinds of realities exist, when they do not exist---except in our imaginations, dreams, fantasies and fears.
