Ideals, values, and principles, 2. Fair and just allocation of scarce resources, 3. Fulfillment of human potentials, 4. The study and description of natural patterns, 5. Facilitating human creativity and dialogue, 6. Minimizing dangerous non-conformity, 7. Facilitating information storage and retrieval, 8. Dealing realistically with human limitations, 9. Interpretations of sacred writings and rules, 10. The formulation of prescriptions/proscriptions. Internal inconsistencies in how priorities are set and followed --- often lead towards disintegration. Such inconsistencies can occur within individuals and between/among groups of individuals --- especially when collusive games of mutual self deception are played. Internal inconsistencies occur when people: A. Use and/or perceive words as having divergent meanings and/or implications. Then people cannot communicate in coherent ways, and so cannot cooperate as a coherent whole. B. Are unaware of, confused about, mis-informed about, and/or ignore regular patterns in natural processes --- and so are in disagreement about how best to inter- relate with each other and natural process. C. Internalize conflicting values, ideals, and principles --- as if they are each of ultimate importance and concern. D. Are unwilling to listen attentively and sympathetically to each other's descriptions and affirmations. E. Become addicted to any particular coping: mechanism, pattern, beliefs, or convictions. F. Detach from experiences and/or from open and honest dialogue with each other. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
