There are senses in which each of us needs to sort out the words-below into reliable-patterns which make- sense to us in terms of our-own-experiences. How we sort-out the words-below depends much upon the extent to which we have brought with us the patterns of assumptions and attitudes of domineering-people --- as compared to the patterns of attitudes and assumptions of true-lovers. Realities which may APPEAR GOOD to people who are embedded within one pattern of assumptions and attitudes --- will IN CONTRAST be recognized as associated with EVIL RELATIONSHIPS ---by people who are embedded within the contrasting patters of assumptions and attitudes of "different" people. Note that nothing has been said here to identity which people are "good" and which people are "evil". Here the word "good" has been used only as regards how realities appear. The word "evil" has been used only with regard to relationships. Clarity about when the words "good" and "evil" can be used helpfully ---- is not easily articulated. Often the two contrasting words are used in ways which are NOT HELPFUL. It is generally NOT HELPFUL to use the two contrasting words in attempts to sort out people into two contrasting groups of people. It may be helpful to try to discern the motivations and intentions of people --- by taking note of the contrasting ways in which people respond to the realities to which the people perceive the following words to point. Not all people will agree on which reality (or realities) any one word below points. What some people regard as "good"; other people may regard as "evil". Beware of thinking that "different" people see things the same way --- that you see things. In particular, domineering-people and true-lovers are likely to see many realities in highly contrasting ways. People are likely to find it difficult to understand just why they see realities in such contrasting ways. Their senses of justice are likely to contrast greatly. Beware of believing that you, or your friends, know what is absolutely true! There probably is no absolutely correct way to sort out the following words into contrasting groups of words --- by what kinds of realities the words point to. Different people see the words pointing in different ways! Who is to say reliably that their own particular way of seeing --- is the one right way of seeing?
