"Consequences" are due to the decisions and actions of God, The-Angels, Principalities-and-Powers, and other "person-like-agents" who should-be/must-be respected and honored in order to "succeed" ON THEIR TERMS. We have to figure out what THEIR TERMS are. 2. "Consequences" flow naturally from how INTEGRATIVELY AND COHERENTLY WE COOPERATE IN MANAGING our: attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, thought- patterns and behavior-patterns. We have to figure out how NATURAL CONSEQUENCES FLOW FROM OUR PATTERNS of attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors. 1. Many forms of theism have encouraged the above first pattern of assumptions, attitudes, thoughts and beliefs --- which in turn engender authoritarian systems which focus upon: laws, commandments, prescriptions, proscriptions, scriptures, conformity, sacrifices, punishments, and domination. 2. People who have internalized the first pattern of assumptions, attitudes, thoughts and beliefs --- often experience fear and anxiety when people encourage them to consider the possible merits of the second pattern of attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, thought-patterns and behavior-patterns. The latter patterns threaten the ground-of-being-who-they-are under the first set of patterns. They also threaten the special advantages of domineering people who are successfully working in support of "The Domination System" and its system of "The Powers That Be" --- that are apparently in control of all that matters.
