It is impossible for people and/or communities Within-God's-Astronomically-Tiny-Space-Ship-Earth --- to affirm and demonstrate meaningful personal and communal kinds and levels of integration- processes and integrities --- in Long-Term-Sustainable-Ways:
1. IN-THE-ABSENCE of significant kinds and levels of risk and vulnerability within intimate relationships of Open-and-Honest-Dialogue.
2. IN-THE-ABSENCE of affirmations and demonstrations of clusters-of-mutually-supportive-ideals- and-virtues including: Humility, Modesty, Moderation, Balance, Cooperation, Tolerance, Patience, Generosity, Hospitality, Sensitivity, Sympathy and Empathy.
3. While tolerating and ignoring systemic patterns of: Distributive-Injustice, Collusive-Games- of-Mutual-Self-Deception, Addictive-Codependent Relationships, Military-Industrial-Complexes, Alienative-Concentrations-of-Wealth-and-Powers, Unsustainable-Patterns-of-Exponential-Growth, Peaking-Resource-Consumption-Patterns, Denials-of-Human-Limits-and-Limitations, Pretentions of Knowing Who-IS-Good and Who-Is-Evil, etc.
4. IN-THE-ABSENCE of meeting the EXPONENTIALLY-GROWING essential humane needs of most all members of the Crew of God's Astronomically-Tiny Space-Ship-Earth --- Essentially-Isolated from Extra-Terrestrial useful physical-resources like pure: soils, minerals, water, air, fossil-fuels, nuclear-fuels, etc.
