In any community of any size which is engaged in gracious efforts to mitigate its ALIENATIVE-CONFLICTS; there must be enduring OPEN-AND-HONEST DIALOGUES about the RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE REALITIES suggested BY WORDS in the THREE columns below. FOR EXAMPLE: Are the words listed below starting and ending with a "$" PLACED-BELOW UNDER - - - the most appropriate headings? How often are the meanings of such words CONTEXTUALLY-DEPENDENT - - - in regards to the relative importance of the WORDS/REALITIES - - - and their INTER-RELATIONSHIPS? "Absences" can be just as importance as "Dominance" and "Thoughtless-Reverence!" Are words on each line - - - significantly inter-related; or inappropriately together? Often: We need to deal with CLUSTERS-OF: Ideals, Values, Virtues, Hopes, etc! We get into TROUBLES-AND-TRAGEDIES when we REVERE any WORD/REALITY as ABSOLUTE! An IDOL! There may be significant OMISSIONS and/or MISALIGNMENTS below. What are they? Where? USUALLY: Searches within are based upon the first three-to-five letters-of-words; sometimes in UPPER-CASE in "suggestive" words. Counts of frequencies of these "words" in texts - - - are based upon the counts-of-frequencies of finding the clusters of the FIRST-THREE-TO-FIVE-LETTERS; ANYWHERE in ALL words of the texts of the over 10,000 essays available at the web site: "".
