A dopamine driven world.


Dean Gotcher

(Mp3 audio presentation on Diaprax and its link to dopamine, i.e. its link to the love of pleasure over and against the love of God.)

Our nerve endings (touch, taste, sight, smell, and sound), when stimulated by objects of pleasure in the environment, 'liberate' or 'emancipate' dopamine (a neurotransmitter) into the synaptic gap between nerve endings.  When dopamine is 'liberation' in the synaptic gaps in the brain we become aware of the object of pleasure in the environment which stimulated it.  We then want to locate the object and attain it in order to engender more dopamine emancipation (pleasure).  All habitual drugs are tied to either imitating, 'liberating,' or preventing the re-uptake of dopamine in the synaptic gap.

To understand the use of the school system in an agenda of changing the American cultural landscape from a traditional, patriarchal paradigm (nationalism and stability) into a transformational, Heresiarchal paradigm (globalism and change) it is necessary to understand the use of educational books such as Bloom's Taxonomies in helping teachers (facilitators, Change Agents) develop an extraordinary curriculum and classroom environment which is then used for the explicit purpose of social change.  These books and others like them have been used over the past half century to change the classroom environment from one of order and respect toward authority into an environment of chaos and disrespect for authority through the use of dopamine liberation (where feelings become a guide to our understanding of the world around us as well as our guide in dealing with the changing world).  This chemical (dopamine) our bodies naturally produces and liberates into our brain (described in this article) is the dynamo which makes the dialectical process work.  By liberating the classroom environment of respect for authority into one of sensuous experience, the individual student can be drawn into collective behavior, willing to sacrifice individual rights and sovereignty for the sake of "human" (Eros) rights and globalism i.e. programmed to making the world safe for Democracy, an environment in which the next generation can participate in an "experiential chasm," a learning experience freed of parental restrains, one where their limited "sense perception," guided by their "sensuous needs" lead them into a "sensuous experience" of liberation from not only the fear of parental restraint but of Godly judgment as well, an experience in which they are not only freed from the standards of the past ("We are proud that in his conduct of life man has become free from external authorities, which tell him what to do and what not to do." Erick Fromm  Escape from Freedom;  "Freedom from excessive tension and from pressures to adopt a particular viewpoint." "His efforts need not conform to the views of authority." Benjamin S. Bloom Taxonomy of Education Objectives Book 1: Cognitive Domain), but also freed to collectively participate in the world of Eros in the "here and now," ("Freedom, as Fromm argued in Escape from Freedom meant ‘freedom to,' not merely ‘freedom from.'"  Martin Jay  The Dialectical Imagination).  Thus, according to dialectical reasoning, freedom is found in the praxis of social Eros, where "Eros is fundamentally a desire for union with objects in the world.  Eros is the foundation of morality." Brown, Norman O. Life Against Death, 1959 p. 41  (see also Herbart Marcuse  Eros and Civilization)  For the world of Eros to become actualized, all social institutions, including the home and the church, must be trained in "Democratic Ethics."  " ... Eros belongs mainly to democracy."  Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality

"A change in methods of leadership is probably the quickest way to bring about a change in the cultural atmosphere of a group."  "Changing a group atmosphere from autocracy toward democracy through a democratic leadership means that the autocratic followers must shift toward a genuine acceptance of the role of democratic followers."  "To change a group atmosphere toward democracy the democratic leader has to be in power and has to use his power for active re-education."  "The more the group members become converted to democracy the more can the power of the democratic leader shift to other ends than converting the group members."  To apply the principle of "individualistic freedom" merely leads to chaos. Sometimes people must rather forcefully be made to see what democratic responsibility toward the group as a whole means. It is true that people cannot be trained for democracy by autocratic methods. But it is equally true that to be able to change a group atmosphere toward democracy the democratic leader has to be in power and has to use his power for active re-education.  Kenneth Benne  Human Relations in Curriculum Change 

"In our democratic society, any enterprise--any individual--has its obligations to the whole." "Tax credits would be given to the company that helps to improve the whole society, and helps to improve the democracy by helping to create democratic individuals." "The best way to destroy democratic society would be by way of industrial authoritarianism, which is anti-democratic in the deepest sense."  (see Lenin's speech on small business) "The goals of democratic education can be nothing else but development toward psychological health."  Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management

 "The only valuable things in psychic life are the emotions." (dopamine is one of several neurotransmitters associated with emotions) "Psychoanalysis is the heir to a mystical tradition which it must affirm." "Psychoanalysis declares the fundamental bisexual character of human nature;" "Psychoanalysis must treat religion as a neurosis."  Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death, p. 7

"It is recognized that unless the individual can do his own problem solving he cannot maintain his integrity as an independent personality." "Closely allied to this concept of maturity and integrity is the concept of the individual as member of a democracy." "Individuals in a democracy are responsible for the conduct of a democratic political system as well as a democratic way of life." Benjamin S. Bloom  Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 1: Cognitive Domain  p. 41

Without the chemical dopamine, a neurotransmitter which our body naturally produces under certain conditionsliberated by events in the environment (including our thoughts) associated with the feeling of pleasureEros, democracy, and the "New World Order" would not be possible.  Dopamine is not the problem, it is the love of it.

    "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.  For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.  But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
    Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
    And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.'' 
Galatians 5:16-26

 Dopamine: "a monoamine C8H11NO2 that is a decarboxylated form of dopa and that occurs especially as a neurotransmitter in the brain." Merriam-Webster Dictionary

"the dopaminergic system would be necessary for wanting the gratifying object."

Between the surface of the body and the brain there are neurons (nerves) which detect changes in the environment and convey these changes to the brain.  For example, there are neurons which detect events in the environment which correlate with activities associated with pain and there are neurons which detect events in the environment which correlate with activities associated with pleasure.  There is a gap, known as a synaptic gap, in the line of this conveyance of information (environmental conditions) to the brain. It is this gap and the chemical messengers which pass across it which directly affect our lives.

Before the brain receives information via the neurons, the neurons have already picked up information from the environment, passing this information to the next neuronpassing it through the synaptic gap by means of neurotransmitters or chemical transmitters of information. These neurotransmitters or chemical messengers are assembled and stored at the pre-synaptic end of the neuron and released into the synaptic gap when the neuron is stimulated by conditions on the skin, the tongue, the eyes, the nose, the ears of the surrounding environment.  The chemical messenger, the neurotransmitter, passes across the synaptic gap where it comes into contact with the the next neuron by way of its neuroreceptor, i.e. the post-synaptic end of the neuron (see diagram above)

Skin surface touches object neuron receptor triggered → neuron sends message up to pre-synaptic gap end of neuron → proper neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) released into synaptic gap → neurotransmitter reaches other end of synaptic gap → activates receptor on post-synaptic gap end of next neuron → message is then sent on towards the brain where procedure is repeated → brain then responds to what stimulated the chain of events at the surface of the skin.

The post synaptic neuron's receptor, receives the neurotransmitter, which acts as a trigger, activating the neuron to send the newly received information on toward the brain. In the brain the neuron conveying the information releases a chemical messenger (neurotransmitter) across synapses' in the brain to activate the brain's neuron receptors to respond to the object or condition in the environment which originally stimulated (triggered) the whole event.

By this means the brain receives information from the world around us, the worldly environment we live in.  Heat, cold, dry, wet, whatever the surroundings we happen to be in at the time, our neurons are passing this information on to the brain to help us deal with (give us data on which to make decisions on whether or how to respond to) the changing conditions.  Whether through touch, taste, sight, smell, or sound our body is sending us information to think about and respond to, some response is automatic (autonomic) some is habitual, (learned and automatically practiced), some requires our immediate evaluation and decision, and some involves both or all.

"And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth."  Luke 12:29-33

Our perception of the world around us, limited as it is, greatly depends upon the way our body transmits environmental conditions to our brain and our ability and or desire to think upon and or respond to it, to respond either positively or negatively (willfully accepting or willfully rejecting participation with the environment is affected by our approving or disapproving of it) or possibly responding with indifference to it.

The role of the neurotransmitter, dopamine

One of over 60 neurotransmitters which our body produces is the neurotransmitter, dopamine.  Dopamine is a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure.  All habitual drugs such as cocaine, tobacco, caffeine, etc., which our body craves when it does not get more (when it runs out of it, or is inhibited from or incapable of producing or liberating dopamine), is tied to the neurotransmitter dopamine.  When we run out of it, we become agitated, we get the shakes, and can become manically depressed.  We can even become angry or hateful towards the object, the person, or the condition which blocks us from its realization.  We can be violent toward those we perceive as removing us from our control over its emancipation, our control over the environment to stimulate more of it, i.e. pleasure.  Dopamine is not only associated with our wanting of things in the environment but also with our enjoyment or pleasure of them: when we smell bread, or see a sunset, or are complimented, or are drawn into activity associated with procreation (providing we found these to be enjoyable in the past i.e. in other words they did not produce pain or were not associated with pain in some way, providing we don't find pleasure in pain that isthis can all become quite complicated), dopamine is being secreted in the brain.

Our carnal nature is to attend to those things in nature which produce pleasure.

The neurotransmitter dopamine is not the only neurotransmitter associated with pleasure, but it is a major one.  When dopamine is emancipated into the synaptic gap it initiates a desire (a wanting, a lusting) for more of what it was in the environment which stimulated its liberation into the synaptic gap, muscles automatically respond in turning the person into the direction of the stimulation, memory is initiated to record the pleasurable event and the conditions which stimulated it, and thought is initiated to contemplate the initiation and sustentation of the pleasurable experience i.e. its emancipation, triggered by the environment (or though upon the environment) which triggers its emancipation results in attraction (infatuation) toward the object or condition which stimulated it release.  One's "first love" is such a dopamine moment it may never be forgotten. Another neurotransmitter associated with pleasure, Serotonin results in a craving for the conditions or object in the environment which triggered its emancipation. Endorphin, another neurotransmitter of pleasure, results in a rush, a "Wow!" sensation. The neurotransmitter GABA, produces the pleasure of sleep while glutamate results in excitement, "yippee!" Yet dopamine is associated with most events of pleasure.  It can even be associated with events of pain.

Once dopamine has been released (liberated) from the pre-synaptic end of the neuron it spreads out into the synaptic gap.  Some of the neurotransmitters reach the post-synaptic end of the next neuron, entering its receptors, stimulating (depolarizing) the neuron, thereby continuing the transfer of information from the outside environment on towards the brain. After this chemical messenger has transferred its message to the next neuron it must become inactivated.  Since the message, pleasure in this case, has been sent, homeostasis (equilibrium or stability) must be restored within the synapses. In this way new information (changes in the environment) can be received and transferred on towards the brain without confusion.

Some dopamine is neutralized in the receptors, some gets absorbed by the area surrounding the synaptic gap, and some is broken down by specially designed organs in the pre-synaptic end of the neuron, (called reuptake).  Some drugs simulate dopamine, some drugs stimulate the production of dopamine, some stimulate dopamine ejection into the synaptic gap, some prevent the reuptake of dopamine, some prevent the re-absorption of dopamine, some prevent the production and or release of dopamine, some prevent the neutralization of dopamine.  Thus by several chemical means the experience of pleasure can be heightened or diminished. Because dopamine is short-lived in the synaptic gap, while the memory of pleasure may last a lifetime, the experience itself is fleeting.  Thus life is ever changing, with its swings of up and down, with people perpetually chasing after its pleasures.

Humanists and their perception of human nature:

1.    The body and some object come into contact in the environment via. touch, taste, sight, smell, or sound.
2.    The bodies nervous system picks up information from the environment.
3.    This information is passed on towards the brain for processing i.e. awareness, contemplation, and response, etc. regarding the environment.
4.    Between the senses and the brain dopamine is emancipated when the event in the environment is associated with pleasure.
5.    In the brain dopamine is emancipated in response to the pleasure neurons stimulated by something in the environment associated with pleasure.
6.    Since the body is designed to approach pleasure when pleasure is experienced, awareness (perception of the environment) is heightened, muscles are activated to turn the person in the direction of the pleasure i.e. the person turns in the direction of the pleasure to apprehend the cause of the sensation of pleasure with the intent of sustaining the pleasure (reaches for the item in the environment which initiated the sensation of pleasure), and memory is stimulated to record the pleasurable experience which in itself produces pleasure; thus the event is retained in the mind as an event to be continued, restores, sought after or reflected upon.
7.    The person is then able to think upon the object or condition in the environment which initiated the pleasurable experience (the imagination of the heart, the use of inductive reasoning to get more), with the hope of experiencing pleasure in the future by association with the item(s) of pleasure (day dreaming, imagination, visualization).  In this way dopamine can be released in the brain the pleasure can again momentarily be experienced. 
8.    By thinking upon the item(s) of pleasure in the environment previously experienced, pleasurable experiences can be re-experienced vicariously.
9.    When the item of pleasure is removed by force or by the treat of pain, if the item is approached, by forces superior to (higher than) the bodies continuous craving for it, the mind is forced to attend in the direction of the object which blocked a persons natural desires, his "human" inclinations to associate with the environment, inhibiting it from becoming at one with nature,  a person is turned against his very own natural inclination to approach and relate with nature, blocking his "pursuit of happiness."
10.   By the use of force or threat of force greater than nature itself a person is forced to act contrary to nature (his nature, according to Freud, is never destroyed but is simply suppressed, repressed by his need for self preservation, when the person succumbs to a patriarchal paradigm, based upon obedience to a higher authority than nature itself, thus developing behavior which is contrary to his nature, a condition known in psychology as neurosis.  When belief, according to this way of thinking, which is above mans nature i.e. super nature(al), is initiated, objective truth, that which is above, interferes with (blocks) subjective truth, that which is below.  This blockage lies within the person themselves, their willingness to obey higher authority, unquestionable (fear of God or parent).
11.    To overcome this "neurosis of civilization,"  those trained in the craft of social-psychology believe a person must be re-educated (their brain washed) to again feel free to experience the pleasures the environment has to offer them, which the environment stimulates i.e. overcoming his super natural training of the past.
12.    "If it feels good, just do it." a phrase in the Marxist's book of Herbert Marcuse Eros And Civilization expressed the attitude of the 60's and on in America.  This attitude was based upon the ideology of both Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud and results in the praxis of patricide (death to objective truth, truth which is above human nature) and incest (life to subjective truth, truth which is found within human nature).
13.    In this paradigm of change (a Heresiarchal paradigm), religion is annihilated through the praxis of behavior "science" where the self-environmental rift, caused by obedience to parents and God, is washed from the persons consciousness, internally in the mind and externally in their perception of the world, is overcome by the dialectical praxis of reattaching man to those common pleasures he holds with all other men, a collective pleasure of social harmony, where his pleasures in life are found, revealed through dialogue (which reveals internal dopamine driven desires, suppressed by super-natural objects i.e. chastening produces a supernatural experience where the one inflicting the pain, from above, blocks natural behavior, which is below), pleasures which are common with all mankind (the items themselves in nature may not be common but the pleasure items in nature emancipate within the person and the common experience of resentment towards that which prevents the pleasure being realized are common to all), where his identity and purpose are found no longer above his nature, un-common with himself and others (resented by his mind which is subconsciously still in love with the laws of the flesh), but within the social group, the team, the village, the community of "believers;" you can believe in anything you want as long as it does not interfere with community i.e. thus turning all beliefs into opinions and all truths into theories.  In this way whoever controls mans perception of the environmental, the social and natural conditions of the day, controls mans nature, providing man is free to follow his natural inclinations; and presto we have a dopamine driven world i.e. lovers of pleasure (dopamine) rather than lovers of God (restrainer of dopamine, not a slave to the flesh.  Note:  Only the will of the Father, he who is above, his mercy and grace, the work of his son, Jesus Christ, he who came from above, his life, death, and resurrection, and the power of the Holy Spirit, sent from above, can make this possible). 
14.    By keeping dopamine under the control of objective truth a person is freed from those who control the earthly environment for their evil purpose, i.e. the antichrist can not control the person.  But when dopamine is under the control of subjective truth a person is a slave to those who control his perception of the earthly environment and is subject to their desired outcomes, their transformational (Heresiarchal) outcome based form of education and world.

Only God can direct a man through this dopamine driven world of sin, dopamine is not sin, the love of it is,  "It is not in man to direct his steps."  Jeremiah 10:23  Without his direction we are simply subject to the laws of the flesh, already judged and condemned by God's law, whether we want to accept it or not as truth.  "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." John 3:16-21

"And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.... And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. .... And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth."  Genesis 3:3, 5, 12, 13

In some cases, with certain drugs, when dopamine is simulated, the bodies natural inclination is to shut down the production of dopamine (due to what it detects as overproduction of dopamine).  Over time, when the simulated dopamine is neutralized by the body, the body is not able to produce its own dopamine.  This results in a craving for the drug.  Whether addicted or not, our bodies crave for things in the environment which stimulate dopamine release.  We in essence chase dope, in this case it is not injected into our body, it is released by our own body, triggered by things in the environment around us or from our thinking upon things in the environment which stimulate it.  We by nature are drawn to pleasure.  It is the lust for it (Eros) which gets us into trouble (sin).

"Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;" Titus 2:12

We are, by God's design, wired to approach pleasure and to avoid pain, for his good pleasure, which is for our own good.  Reward and punishment would not be possible without these bodily conditions established by God.  What we know in the physical nature, avoid pain, approach pleasure, is changed in our knowing of God, to stand (Ephesians 6:11-18), neither running to pleasure nor fleeing from pain, in the spiritual we are no longer under the control of our bodies (and the worlds) lust for pleasure and the ensuing judgment upon it and but instead are free to approach God and eternal life (experiencing pain and pleasure but no longer letting them guide and direct us) with peace and joy.

"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."  1 John 2:15-18

It is not pleasure itself which is a problem, it is the love of it, the love of the conditions which stimulate the body's craving for dopamine.  Lovers of pleasure are "driven" by the environment around them, the objects in the natural environment which liberates dopamine ("the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world").  The environment can not make you "do it," but it can allure you into such a state that any thought in its direction can easily encourage you to "do it."  Since the pleasures of this world have a propensity to draw our bodies toward pleasure, it is evil to find our purpose in life by the influences (encouragement or enticement) of the world.  In this way we can be easily "driven" by the things in the world (even in Jesus name), finding our "purpose" through relationship with others through it.

"By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward." Hebrews 11:24

"... and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;"  2 Corinthians 10:5

What we set our heart's desire upon, what we treasure as important in our lives, determines a lot of how we will respond to the situation. Things in the environment which stimulate dopamine secretion (emancipation, liberation) can easily become the treasures of our lives. "For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."  Luke 12:34  We store them in our mind (imagination, dreams, etc.), while we attempt to accumulate them externally for our continued pleasure.  What the child wants (covets) is not the toy itself, it is the pleasure, the emancipation of dopamine, what the toy stimulates.

Understanding the world we now live in.

What can I get out of this relationship for me?
If there is no dopamine (pleasure) in it for me, it's not worth the effort.

For fallen man (for the liberal mind i.e. the dopamine emancipated mind) the "good life" lies in the relationship they have with others (man has with mankind of like mindedness toward pleasure), others who provide dopamine emancipation for them—our relationship with others, approval by them, even in acts of denial or pain, emancipates dopamine into the synaptic gap.  Thus liberals can't hang around for long with, or seek advice or direction from, true believers (those people who they see as "fundamental religious extremist," whose lives are not driven by dopamine emancipation), and definitely don't allow believers to have any position of control over society. The liberal mind, void of understanding of the work of God in the hearts of men (understanding begins with the fear of God), can not understand the freedom a believer has from the power of the flesh, now lead by the Spirit of God,  filled the joy and the peace which can only come from God above and not from nature below).

The liberal mind, tied to the love for the liberation of dopamine (placing their hope in the pleasures of this life) can only see depression as the result of Godly restraint.  The liberal church (the enlightened church) simply provides an environment which stimulates dopamine emancipation to keep its members coming back for more, satisfying their habit of socially shared pleasure, keeping the liberal ministers' personal dopamine addiction also well supplied.  "Whoever gives me dopamine emancipation, in the name of Jesus, I will support and I will follow." Liberals can not truly love man, they love the dopamine emancipation which relationship with man provides them. This is why the liberal minded despise being chastened, and hate those who chasten. "The correct thing to do with authoritarians is to take them realistically for the bastards they are and then behave toward them as if they were bastards." Abraham Maslow  Maslow on Management   God chastens those whom he loves "for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness." Hebrews 12:10   This is why, just as Satan, the liberal mind hates the word of God and diligently reinterprets it (changes it to fit with his human reasoning, changes it from "It is written" i.e. truth and ideal into "I think," or "I feel," i.e. an opinion or theory) to protect himself from any sense of condemnation—so that he can feel better about himself and be less offensive to others.

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith."  Romans 12:1-3

Replacing (or worst yet synthesizing) our hope in Christ (above) with our hope in happiness (below)

Hope ↔ happiness ↔ pleasure ↔ mind,  
Immanuel Kant's "logic" in Critique of Pure Reason
↔ dopamine ↔ Nature (worship of the creation),
thus if it does not procedure from Nature, it is not real.

If certain objects in the Environment stimulated Dopamine emancipation
And if man in his carnal nature loves Dopamine emancipation
then man naturally loves certain objects in the Environment which stimulated Dopamine emancipation. 
If the earthly patriarchal family is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly patriarchal family (both use chastening), then the earthly patriarchal family must be annihilated both in theory and in practice.  (paraphrase by Dean Gotcher of Karl Marx's Feuerbach Thesis #4)

If God or the traditional parent (a patriarchal paradigm which uses chastening) blocks a persons natural response toward the Environment (in his natural inclination to get more Dopamine emancipation) and if a person naturally hates having his Dopamine emancipation blocked
then a person naturally hates (at least resents) God or the traditional parent when they block them from associating with or attending to objects in the environment which naturally emancipate dopamine.

"A patriarchal culture is an argument against the higher possibilities of human nature, of social actualization"  Abraham H. Maslow Maslow on Management

If the natural (carnal) mans hope is to be found in dopamine emancipation
and if dopamine emancipation is restrained or blocked by a patriarchal paradigm
then mans hope can only be found through the removal of the patriarchal paradigm, its removal from both his mind and from the environment he lives within.

The soviet was simply a method used to negate the effect the patriarchal paradigm was having upon setting policy in the home and in the community.
A facilitated meeting driving a diverse group to consensus over social issues being used today is a soviet.
All departments (created by elected officials of government) using the soviet system (facilitating to consensus over social issues) helping elected officials set policy for the citizens (networking between all branches of Government) is known as the politburo.

Facilitators must initiate and sustain their power of influence in all meetings if they are to maintain control over the environment and thereby control the outcome .... consensus ... a group dopamine moment which negates the patriarchal, authoritarian paradigm.

This is the praxis being applied in education, the workplace, government, and even the church (apostate that is) today.  It is the pattern of the "One World Government," of the antichrist system seeking "world peace."

"The goal of the pleasure principle is happiness." "The replacement of the pleasure principle by the reality principle [obeying parents or God] is the great traumatic event in the development of man ... it occurs during the period of early childhood, and submission to the reality principle is enforced by the parents and other educators." [Id] "... does not aim at self-preservation; all it strives for is satisfaction of its instinctual needs, in accordance with the pleasure principle." "... the basic instincts strive for the prevalence of pleasure and for the absence of pain, the pleasure principle is incompatible with reality (above nature commands from God or parent), and the instincts have to undergo a repressive regimentation." "In terms of the pleasure principles ... reproduction is merely a ‘by-product.'"  Norman O. Brown  Life Against Death   This "logic" justifies the praxis of adultery, fornication, homosexuality, pedophilia, bestiality, divorce on demand, abortion, etc. See Romans 1

"Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:  And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint–heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together." Romans 8:12-17

If science must proceed from nature
and if the science of man makes man one with nature
then anything which separates man from his nature is not scientific, and therefore is, assumable, of no worth.
thus mankind, under the control of that which is outside (above) the science of nature (not under the control of the science of nature) is of no worth.

If  Nature (N) stimulates Dopamine (D), and the Individual (I) wants Dopamine (D), then whoever controls Nature (N) i.e. the environment, controls Dopamine (D), controls the Individual (I).  They can make the Individual (I) do what they want them to do, i.e. tax them out of existence, as long as they remain dependent upon Dopamine (D).  In this way the powers that be can maintain their supply of (D), the working masses supporting social-psychologist (philosopher leaders) through their labor of love (volunteerism, teamwork—a team is a group of people with purpose ... a collective moment of dopamine emancipation ... a moment of celebration or victory, etc.) i.e. the buying and selling of soulsnone can buy or sell without the mark of the beast. "‘Have you merely released the beast, the id, in man?' There is no beast in man. There is only man in man, and this we have been able to release." Carl Rogers On Becoming A Person. "Man has only to understand himself, to take himself as the measure of all aspects of life, to judge according to his being, to organise the world in a truly human manner according to the demands of his own nature, and he will have solved the riddle of our time." "But there is no other salvation for him, he cannot regain his humanity, his substance, other than by thoroughly overcoming all religious ideas and returning firmly and honestly, not to 'God', but to himself."  Friedrich Engels The Condition of England A review of Past and Present, by Thomas Carlyle, London, 1843 Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher, 1844  "The only practically possible emancipation is the unique theory which holds that man is the supreme being for man."  Karl Marx  Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right'

If you ever participated in role-playing exercises, the following information explains what you were really doing.  Role playing was developed by the Freudian-Marxist, J. L. Moreno for the expressed purpose of "purging" from society those who might interfere with mans addiction to dopamine, his natural link to universal reconciliation. "Religion and science can be kept apart, indeed, one is able to do conscientious screening and not let one activity impede the other―in short, it is an exercise in 'role playing.'"  J. L. Moreno Who Shall Survive

"As I tried the sociometric system first on the universe and on the concept of God, its first manifesto was a revolutionary religion, a change of the idea of the universe and the idea of God.  The god of Jesus was further extended, the son 'withered away' until nothing was left except the universal creativity of the Godhead and only one commandment: To each according to what he is (an all-inclusive acceptance of the individual 'as he is).'"  "A creator, as soon as his work has emanated from him, has no right to it any longer except a psychological right.  He had all rights upon it as long as it was growing in him but he has forfeited these as soon as it is gone out of him and becomes a part of the world.  It belongs to universality."  "Parents have no right upon their offspring except a psychological right. Literally the children belong to universality."  "We propose, therefore, the specialization of the notion of parenthood into two distinct and different functions-the biological parent and the social parent.  They may come together in one individual or they may not.  But the problem is how to produce a procedure which is able to substitute and improve this ancient order." "...we have described roleplaying as diagnostic method but it can also  be used as 'role therapy' to improve the relations between the members of a group."   [If you have ever participated in role-playing, Moreno is the noted Marxist who developed it for Americans, with the hope that it would be utilized towards achieving a global community.] "The community needs, therefore, to be explored and, if necessary, purged from undesirable cultural conserves .... The community must be 'deconserved' from the pathological excesses of its own culture, or at least, they must be put under control." "Sociometry can assist the United States, with its population consisting of practically all the races on the globe, in becoming an outstanding example of a society which has no need of extraneous ideas or of forces which are not inherent in its own structure."  J. L. Moreno Who Shall Survive

When man is no longer dependent upon Dopamine because they have been chastened (by God and parent) and now have a "peaceful fruit of righteousness," they are no longer under the control of Nature and thus are free from those who use Nature to control mans behavior, i.e. for their own personal gain (slave masters need slaves).  The power to tax is the power to destroy the parents right to chasten their children and get them off their dependence upon dopamine and nature (unrighteous behavior). The Boston Tea Party, a social act based upon the same principle, (Evening of December 16, 1773, 45 tons of tea, $1.8 million of tea went into the Boston harbor) was all about intercepting what in Nature produced Dopamine (tea stimulates a craving via. its stimulation of dopamine) so a people could be freed from the power of taxation "without representation."  True representation can not take place while the representative is under the influence of dopamine (RUI is tyranny, unlimited government and thus total control over the citizen) but must be under the control of principles (RUP, limited government and thus freedom to the citizen).

The opposite is true today as the century long project was to change the way citizens thought about themselves and their leaders.  The project was to move Americans into an attitude of resentment toward those who might interfere with their addiction to dopamine, creating a people fearful of those with "non-influencability," those not moved by the demands of socialist addicts, those who were instead controlled by "private convictions," clear minded concerning what is right and what is wrong.  America has been educated by a system which believes "It must develop persons who see non-influenceability of private convictions in joint deliberations as a vice rather than a virtue." Kenneth Benne Human Relations in Curriculum Change  Thus the principles which lead to the Boston Tea Party no longer apply to politics today.  Pleasure tax will guarantee Americas addiction to the love of this world and its "New World Order." The "liberated" would say, "After all, you want to breath clean air, to drink clean water, and not be fried by green house effect, don't you ... those hateful absolutists (including scientist who know the truth), those fundamental religious extremists, those greedy capitalist (with their demand for surplus capital, so they can control their own lives), especially those who believe in God ... life would be wonderful if they would just disappear."  Have you noticed that any time you make a thesis statement today and hold to it, especially refusing to accept God's word as an opinion of yours but rather rightfully declaring it God breathed, i.e. all mankind subject to it, you are treated as though you are being hateful.  Man sure love his dope.  But thanks be to God there are those who are no longer addicted to the environment stimulating drug, dopamine.  Their foundation is no longer in this world but in Christ Jesus.  Their mind is set upon things above and no longer on things below.  In this world, yes, but no longer of it. Enjoying dopamine yes, but not in love with it. No longer under its control. No longer lovers of pleasure but instead lovers of God.

Dialectically, any action which intercepts this "individual ↔ dopamine ↔ environment" cycle and prevents its dialectical completion (especially in a social setting) is seen as an act of repression, and by some, now in high office, as an act of violence against mankind itself.  Any act which limits its natural cycle (its spiral into the abyss, the broad path) is to be treated as a crime against "human rights" (dopamine rights). Addicts will defend their stash at all cost.  They must control land, air, and water to control mankind. Objective truth, not initiating and sustaining the dopamine (dialectical) cycle, is to be treated with contempt and removed from the environment as soon as possible (to initiate and sustain a heresiarch praxis of change).  While the temporal effects are devastating to a free society, the spiritual effects are diabolical.  What is it to gain the pleasures of this world and eternally lose your soul.  For those using this addictive process (to control the masses for their own personal gain i.e. the praise of men for their praxis of intoxicating mankind—an addict will always praise the one supplying him his high, at least in his presence, and those supplying the drug love the power of control they have over others, also a dopamine moment), their reward will be in this life only.  Truth will win out, objective truth will prove them wrong in the end, for there is one who will judge all mankind for what he has done in this life.  Mock God they will, but God will not be mocked  "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." Galatians 6

The love of pleasure, the "pleasure principle,"  is the root of all evil.  Pleasure has never been the problem, it has been man's love of pleasure which has promoted his resistant against God and his word. The mind of the flesh, in love with the things in the environment which stimulate dopamine emancipation, left to itself will move our mind to attend to its earthy "needs,"  "What is going to happen to me if I don't get or keep it (whatever it is which stimulated dopamine emancipation), I must have it NOW? "  "I will just die if I can't have it NOW." (All the therapist i.e. the facilitator, has to do today is move the "I" into a group setting and get it to respond with "we," as in "We will just die if we can't have it NOW.") This is the tyranny of the masses. Thus in the heat of impulse, of desire, blinded to extrinsic warnings (warnings which make no "sense" at the time—Have you ever done something for which later you hated yourself for doing? Something which only later you knew you had a choice, but for some reason you would not have listened to anyone's warning. You would have simply justified, with confidence in your action and with contempt toward anyone repeatedly warning you, that any such warnings were of no concern to you, that they were not relevant to your situation, and anyone delivering them to you were being "hateful" towards you.).  "We" (witches collectively do it in a circle), "Just do it." because it feels good.  The mind of the flesh, this love of dopamine emancipation, is so strong, that if we do not "hate" ourselves first, we can not overcome its demand for actualization (necessity of the moment).  The "I," disguised in the "we," will perish if we don't get it now, drives the dialectical process, like a pack of wolves the "we" searches out and surrounds the individual victim to devour them. 

" Marcuse thus could write that ‘the realm of freedom lies beyond mimesis.'" Stephen Bronner Of Critical Theory and Its Theorists 
"Impulse, the primary fact, back of which, psychically we cannot go." John Dewey, "Social Psychology," Psychological Review, I (July, 1894), p. 404

The necessity of dopamine emancipation is the dynamo which actualizes revolution and keeps it moving. This necessity is the same necessity of the theory of evolution. Without it the theory would die—the necessity of change would die with the choice of truth. Without the theory of "neurosis" and "sublimation," psychology would die.  Without the theory of repression, alienation, and surplus capital, socialism would die. They all depend upon the dialectical dynamo of dopamine, call it mimesis, impulse, id, etc. it is all the same, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.   These guys speak of choice but only under the conditions of the necessity of the flesh, void of the choice of truth, of right, of the immutable Word of God and his will "done on earth as it is in heaven," by his Spirit.

"From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not."  James 4: 1, 2

Wars within and the wars without are based upon our love for the liberation of this tiny neurotransmitter (dopamine) into our brain (wars even done in the name of Jesus).  We are not accountable for what the environment (the world) brings upon us, but we are accountable before God on how we respond.  For example: King David was not where he was supposed to be, he was at home instead of with his troops in battle, when he happened to see Bathsheba, "who was very beautiful to look upon" (a dopamine moment) and upon sending messengers he "took her" (to get more dopamine emancipation) and the rest is history, a history of sin, a history of David chasing dopamine emancipation. (2 Samuel 11)

"Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?"  James 4:3-5

Throughout the scriptures death, destruction, and lies litter the pathway of man seeking after pleasure, the emancipation of dopamine, who carry out vendettas upon those who prevent or interfere with its pursuit. All the laws of God concern themselves with this neurotransmitter.  Fallen man worships gods of his own making, god's who help him emancipate dopamine.  He makes graven images and worships them, god's and their "laws" which emancipate dopamine.  He can not stop himself from continually seeking after dopamine emancipation, working himself or others into early death to achieve it (the words "Gold rush," simply means the rush of dopamine emancipation from the possibility of "eternal" stimulation, it's not necessarily only the gold, its beauty in sight and touch which stimulates dopamine emancipation, it is also the hope for unimaginable pleasure it promises to provide).  He dishonors those who teach him to restrain, or interfere with his love of dopamine emancipation.  He steals those things from others which stimulate dopamine emancipation.  He seeks those things of his neighbors which stimulate dopamine emancipation.  He bears false witness against any one who limits his dopamine emancipation or gains dopamine emancipation through performing such an act.  He seeks dopamine emancipation from someone other than his own wife when she does not provide it.  It is a very long list of verses a person can compile from the praxis dopamine emancipation against God's will.  God's law is spiritual, man's law, of the flesh, is temporal.  Breaking God's law can be summed up in "taking that which is not ours."  The earth is the Lords and the fulness thereof, for us to covet any of it, to use it for dopamine emancipation, against God's will, is sin. Sometimes Godly chastening (in love) is all which will be "listened" to at the time by a person blinded by its powerto bring a person (or child) to the responsibility of gaining control over longing for or lusting after it, i.e. learning self control, self discipline.

" I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." (Psalms 139:14)

In this way the environment around us stimulates our brain to respond to changing conditions (awareness of environmental change, muscular response to it, and retention of the momentary event in memory).  We did not know we wanted Ice Cream for example (If you don't want Ice Cream, when it is brought before you, or when it is on your mind, then put something you do want, when placed in front of you, in its place) until our brain told us we wanted it. Whether you like it our not is not the issue, if dopamine is secreted when your body encounters the object in the environment then your natural inclination is to want it. (That is unless someone told you you would not like it, that it was bad for you, or that it would result in harm coming to you, or for some reason you predetermined you would not like it. That can influence your perception or awareness of your future attraction toward it as well—in this line of thinking, liking something is of the mind while wanting something is of the body, human nature, based upon the body and its natural inclination toward the world would outweigh the liking or disliking of something shaped by sources outside your human nature).

"Every neurosis is an example of dynamic adaptation; it is essentially an adaptation to such external conditions as are in themselves irrational and, generally speaking, unfavorable to the growth of the child." Erich Fromm, Escape from Freedom

"Work done by Horkheimer in the thirties identified 'neurosis as a social product, in which the family was seen as a primary agent of repressive socialization.'" Erich Fromm, Marx's Concept of Man

 "Parental discipline, religious denunciation of bodily pleasure, . . . have all left man overly docile, but secretly in his unconscious unconvinced, and therefore neurotic."  "The bondage of all cultures to their cultural heritage is a neurotic construction." Norman O. Brown  Life Against Death.

This is of major importance to understand.  If this thinking is embraced (the dialectical paradigm), then when the environment in the Garden in Eden stimulated the woman's dopamine emancipation (pleasure, to "touch" the tree), which would be considered as her discovering her true nature, her true identity with the world around her (which would be classified as being good by those who think dialectically), then any interference of that which was of her nature would be considered as evil.  Thus God's interference with the woman's true nature (his command to Adam, not to eat of the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil," and his command for Adam to take dominion over the environment and also rule over the woman) would be considered as evil, since it interfered with that which was goodthe woman's discovering of her full potential, her spontaneity to relate with the environment, only possible apart from commands blocking her natural desire.  Her response to God's command when confronted by an environment facilitated by Satan, shows all mankind the pathway (broad pathway) to the discovering of their full potential through a restored relationship with the environment—"universal reconciliation."

"Universal Reconciliation - where reconciliation includes the interaction of human beings with nature, with animals, plants, and minerals."
"Universal Reconciliation relies on a reason that is before reason-mimesis or ‘impulse.'"
J. Habermas The Theory of Communicative Action., 1981 see F. Grenz, Adornos Philosophie, pp. 57-58

      If  A = B
and If  B = C
  then  A = C

If people naturally seek pleasure,
and If pleasure is dopamine emancipation,
then people naturally seek dopamine emancipation.


If facilitators (like Satan) are trained in putting emphasis on specific items in the environment which emancipate dopamine,
and if the specific items in the environment which emancipate dopamine can control (manipulating) our lives,
then facilitators (like Satan) are trained in controlling (manipulating) our lives.

By Adam's and the woman's (Eve's) rejection of their fleshy nature, through the act of obedience to commands, commands which blocked their "self actualization," their natural desire to relate with the world around them, they would manifest a behavior known in psychology as "neurosis." They would be forever neurotic, according to psychology, since the desire to relate with the creation (uninhibited spontaneous sensuous relationship), would always exist, residing within them, in the subconscious mind, waiting for a facilitator, an "angel of mercy" (Satan) to free them  from the repression of the conscience (the command of God or the parent resident within). Thus Satan (if you want to know how to facilitate change in man, to bring him individually and collectively into harmony with his human nature, study Satan, not GodGod demands repentance and expects obedience to him), again, Satan, the master facilitator, becomes the messenger of "peace," the liberator of mankind from his neurosis (a self-environmental dialectical riftboth seeking unity, the self with the environment and the environment with the self, but instead alienated by objective truth, non-sensuous commands), a neurosis caused by God and parents whose commands of obedience block mankind's interpersonal relationship with the world, a world which is calling (enticing) all mankind to join in its pursuit of pleasure, worldly pleasure seeking emancipation (seeking actualization), but at present constrained, helplessly squirming within mankind, needing a collective voice, a chorus of consensus for liberation, a "democratic" authorization to burst forth and carnage the restrainers.

"Neurotic symptoms, with their fixations on perversions and obscenities, demonstrate the refusal of the unconscious essence of our being to acquiesce in the dualism of flesh and spirit, higher and lower." Norman O. Brown  Life Against Death.

When we first tasted Ice Cream (our neurons were triggered, neurotransmitters were sent across synaptic gaps, and the next neurons activated), up until this information was received by the brain, and the brain began the action of processing it, we did not know for certain whether we wanted it or not. Thus, according to dialectical reasoning, "felt" needs become the basis of "sound" reasoning, both in alignment with the environment.  That rational, balanced, reasonable, sensible, sound reasoning must be founded upon "sense experience, in the two forms of sense perception and sensuous need, that is, only when it proceeds from Nature." Karl Marx Selected Reading  Without both being experienced, sensuous perception (consciousness of the environment around us, as Satan assisted the woman in the Garden of Eden—enticed her) and sensuous needs (consciousness of our internal environmental "felt" needs, the woman's natural desire, her "felt" need to "touch" the tree of "the knowledge of good and evil") through sensuous reasoning (building reality upon how we feel and what we think, she "saw" ...), neurosis can not be overcome (the materialization of man can not be "actualized").

Turning mankind into an amoeba.

"1. All human behavior is directed toward the satisfaction of needs, 2. the individual will change his established ways of behaving for one of two reasons: to gain increased need satisfaction or to avoid decreased need satisfaction, and 3. 'augmentation' in the possibilities of needs satisfaction."  Douglas McGregor as quoted in Human Relations in Curriculum Change ed. by Kenneth Benne

Depending upon the utilization of our nervous system, we continue to either add to its ability or diminish from its ability to gather, retain, and respond to information we gather from the environment which we consider as worthy of attention (information from the environment which we perceive will benefit us in some way). This is particularly true of the very young.  In other words we can grow and train the brain.  By attending to (thinking and acting upon) selected things in the environment we can train our brain to respond more quickly in a particular direction or way of thinking.  By selective attention to the environment, and play with it, we can develop more brain capacity in a particular area of interest while possibly diminishing another area due to its lack of exercise.  Our very way of thinking is based upon how we respond to (or allowed to respond to) the environment around us and thus our behavior towards things in the environment reflect the way we think. Approval from the environment (it does not bite back i.e. it does not produce pain, "reality principle") or from people in the environment (they do not threaten us or chasten us), reinforces our approach toward things we find pleasurable in the environment and helps in developing the way we think (approach pleasure i.e. "pleasure principle," and avoid pain i.e. "reality principle").

"Neither the Bible nor the prophets, neither the revelations of God can take precedence over my own direct experience." "Experience is, for me, the highest authority." "The individual in such a moment, is coming to be what he is.  He has experienced himself.  He has become what he is." "Existential living is to say that the self and personality emerge from experience. It means that one becomes a participant in and an observer of the ongoing process of organismic experience." Carl Rogers On becoming a person

Thus the barriers to our relationship with certain things in the environment, things in the environment which originally attracted us, adjusts our mind in the direction of attending to, having respect for, honoring (at least having obedience toward) the source of the barrier (the parent, God, etc.) and turn us away from having relationship with the thing in the environment which originally attracted us (fear of punishment from the parent, fear of the unknown, fear that the thing in the environment might bite back).  Our love is then turned from the things in the environment, things which our fleshly nature desired to relate with, toward loving the one who blocked our relationship with the environment.  In this way objective truth, truth which is not learned via self experience finding commonality with the things in the environment, things in the environment which naturally draws us to it (subjective truth), but is truth which must be accepted as truth (commands given) outside of or above our sense experience ("Because God said so."), becomes the bases of the way we think (a patriarchal paradigm).  In this way of thinking we learn to contrast between that which is above (parent, God resulting in obeying commands from them and learning self control) and what is below (the fleshly draw of the world resulting in worldly control and  eventual judgment).  In fact we can not overcome the draw of the worldly environment on our own (this is why we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God).

The only way to overcome the power of the flesh and its lusts for the creation and the Prince of the power of the air, the enticer, Satan, who plants thoughts in our mind to justify our desire to be at-one with the world, is by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ, (his righteousness imputed to all who believe upon him, repenting of our sin and accepting him as Savior and Lord of our life), and the power of the Holy Spirit. As a hymn says: "What can wash away my sin, nothing but the blood of Jesus." All we can learn otherwise is that objective truth (truth above sense experience, truth which is certain and unchanging) is more important than finding what is common between our desires the the environment, the world we find ourselves within (truth bound to sense experience, which is uncertain and ever changing).

Prior to our knowledge of the work of Christ (by the preaching and teaching of others) and believing upon him, all a person knows its that he lives by bread, a physical need, and desires direction in his life, which only God can fulfill—fulfilled only by ever word which proceedeth from God (a word which carries within it restraint of the "felt" needs), satisfying a spiritual need.  Even those who fight against God know this to be true, recognizing it with a contemptuous attitude: "Freud referred to ... the group's ‘need to be governed by unrestricted force . . . it's extreme passion for authority . . . it's thirst for obedience.' Among the strongest of these is man's need for an omnipotent, omniscient, omnicaring parent, which together with his infinite capacity for self-deception creates a yearning for and a belief in a superbeing." Irvin Yalom The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy  The only true God can only be known through his revealed word, his word not environmentally constrained (shaped by men's opinions). The only god man can "discover" is one he makes in his own image or the image of the creation, a god who's identity and power depends upon man's interpretation, his imagination (Romans 1:19-32).  Apart from God revealing himself to man, man only has hope in himself, his wisdom, and the creation.  Apart from repentance before the true and living God, the flesh and its lusts retains its control over the person, the eyes retain their lust for the things of this world, and man's pride takes him captive to his wisdom of this world, all foolishness before God our creator.

"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory." Colossians 3:1-4

Humanists, those who worship the environment, know that by creating a selective environment (by "allowing" the introduction of "appropriate information" into the environment—accentuating the "tolerance of ambiguity," the open-mindedness of uncertainty, the nonconformity of speculation, the employment of confusion), an    environment which is filled with those things which originally attracted us prior to the voice of restraint (an id based environment which in its first encounter with restraint, resented and if possible expressed dissatisfaction with restraining commands i.e. "when the id wants something nothing else is important" (source: ), known as Freud's "pleasure principle," our natural, carnal, inclinations), and then in a "safe-zone," through the praxis of role-playing (circumventing the conscience, the residing voice of restraint {searing the conscience while realigning the superego}, until the person's ego, their "I will," "I want," is able to meet both their own id needs, their "felt" needs, and other's id needs, their "felt needs, i.e. resulting in identifying class consciousness {identifying a person or class of people having something you want, insisting that you can not have it while also identifying a person or class of people who want something which they are not allowed to have by the other person or class of people—it is easier to do it in a group} and actualizing social "felt" needs, thereby negating the parents control, control residing in the conscience; this time the ego, under the influence of a room full of people getting in touch with their id, their "felt" needs, can be freed from the effects of parental restraint) "help" us to discover for ourselves that the environment will not bite back.   The participants in the experiment, the "special opportunities," will, as a result, turn a deaf ear to the author of barriers, barriers to his desired relationship with the environment (just like what happened in Genesis 3:1-6).

It all goes back to Genesis 3:1-6, for man the initial praxis of the dialectical paradigm.

"If the guilt accumulated in the civilized domination of man by man can ever be redeemed by freedom, then the ‘original sin' must be committed again: ‘We must again eat from the tree of knowledge in order to fall back into the state of innocence." Herbert Marcuse  Eros and Civilization  emphasis added.  The "understanding" being, if a person is not bound by laws which are not relevant to him, he is innocent of any crime leveled against him for breaking such laws.  Since mans innocence can not be found within a traditional top-down environment, it will only be experienced and realized in a consensuous seeking group, a group practicing the dialectical process of experimentation within the environment to find "truth".  "I told Freud he put people on a couch and isolated them, which was entirely wrong.  We don't live on a couch; we live in groups from birth to death.  Freud took people into the past, I take them into the present and future.  Psychodrama deals with the Here-and-Now."  J. L. Moreno quoted in Jane Howard's book Please Touch  "To experience Freud is to partake a second time of the forbidden fruit;" Norman O. Brown Life Against Death) In this way the person will be restored to freedom in the environment, finding commonality with it, liberated from the restrainer and his barriers against having relationship with the environment, emancipated from a restraining (limiting) way of thinking.  Collectively, man is able to "explode" contradictions by finding communalityinvalidate identity above the community (which divides) by finding identity within the community (which unites).  "Purpose," defined by one above or outside the community (God or traditional parents, initiating and sustaining the con-science), is terminate by "discovering purpose" within the community of common experience (con-senses).

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 2 Timothy 3:1-5

"It [re-education i.e. therapy, brain washing, brain washed of respect for and a honoring of a patriarchal paradigm] changes his cognitive structure, the way he sees the physical and social worlds, including all his facts, concepts, beliefs,. and expectations." "It modifies his valences and values, ... his attractions and aversions to groups and group standards, his feelings in regard to status differences, and his reactions to sources of approval or disapproval."   (Kurt Lewin in Human Relations in Curriculum Change ed. by Kenneth Benne)  Our awareness of things above (over) the environment (the authoritarian voice of restraint) will be decreased as our awareness of the environment (the voice of liberation, the law of the flesh) will be increased (Conscientisation). One area in our mind will decrease in development as the other increases. Instead of fighting against the barriers in life, the focus is upon experiencing the desires of life and thus liberating (justifying) them (being rational, reasonable). (Don't attack the parents, focus instead upon the physical, mental, and social health of their children, consequently, out of their love for their children, they will be drawn into participation with the takeover of their children's lives by the community—the partnership, synthesis, of capitalism with socialism, the individual with the social (a public-private partnership), democratic capitalism, is global communism.)  In this way the authors of the barriers of life will become irrelevant ("wither away: to render speechless or incapable of action." source ). If you are one who speaks with a voice of restraint, how many people have been listening to you lately (without that glazed over look, which means your not worth listening to)?

"In psychology, Freud and his followers have presented convincing arguments that the id, man's basic and unconscious nature, is primarily made up of instincts which would, if permitted expression, result in incest, murder, and other crimes.  The whole problem of therapy, as seen by this group, is how to hold these untamed forces in check in a wholesome and constructive manner, rather than in the costly fashion of the neurotic." Carl Rogers in his book on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy

We are to flee such conditions when necessary, when they lead us away from our Creator ("Flee also youthful lusts;"  2 Timothy 2:22).  We are not to be lovers of the creation.  Those who are driven (liberated, emancipated) by the environment, are under the control of the environment and therefore are under the control of those who manipulate the environment for their desired ends (supply or accentuate the "appropriate information" to produce their desired outcome), they are slaves to their flesh and the environment (real or illusionary) which "drives" (stimulates) it.  Consider this as you look at what is happening around you, in the world (environment) you live in.

"And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint: And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?  And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright."  Genesis 25:29-24

Thus when "right" (truth and value) is determined by the changing environment, the value of your life (yours, the unborn, the elder, your children, your decedents, etc.) becomes subject to the environmental "felt" needs of the time, worth is thus based upon your ability to satisfy the "felt" needs of the environment (not only with people but also with trees, rocks, animals, and space itself), and from then on you become a servant to those who manipulate the environment i.e. your "quality" of life, and life itself, is uncertain.  Thus your rights above man's control become "rights" under man's control, rights thus become privileges, established by men's opinions, your "liberty" becomes constricted (censored) by those who control the environment i.e. men who manipulate what you must attend to (focused upon and dialogued about social issues and crisis) in the immediate environment via the media, entertainment, group discourse settings in the classroom, the workplace, government, the church, the home, etc).

"Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears." Hebrews 12:16, 17

Any effort on your part to live as an individual, with private convictions, not influenced by the environment (the world), to live subject to the will of God, to the creator of the world, expecting others to recognize, respect, and honour your inalienable birth-rights (rights given by him, "self evident," which no man or group of men can put a lien upon, because they were not given to you by the will of man  i.e. as long a you know and appreciate them and you don't, like Esau, sell them off for immediate gratifications, i.e. the "felt" needs the world is willing to "provide" satisfaction of, at a cost, the value of which is to be realized at a latter time), any effort on your part to live distant from the manipulation of others and the temptations of the world (so you will not be controlled by the environmental press), and any effort on your part to insist others respect and support your privacy, your way of thinking (we are to attend to the "directing" of our creator and not the "drawing and enticing" of the creation), will be perceived as a threat to a "free" democratic society.  "Democracy ideology" always results in the "tyranny of the masses," i.e. a people "driven" by the conditions (perceived threats and rewards, whether real or not real) within the environment, finding their "purpose" in life based upon the environmental "felt" needs of the time—an environment under the control (manipulation, scheme) of facilitators (social/environmental engineer's), men recognized in the past as "philosopher kings," the "vanguard party"—midwives of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and identified today as mediators, the voice of the "grass roots," guides, coaching all in the satisfaction of their lust for life in the "moment" (with group life preeminent), and, like Esau, being cheering on in the selling of their birthright for some "red pottage" (group hug—communism with a smile),  so they will willingly put their liberty and freedom on the market (cursing them) and sell them for the "felt" needs of the moment (the approval of others), supported by the "here-and-now" environmental press.

"The leader has skills in human relations and can manage the interplay of individual differences so that human energy may be controlled in pursuit of common goals. . .  Leadership of this type [is] based on liberation rather than domination."  Wilbur Brookover  A Sociology of Education

"The basic task of re-education is to change the individual's social perception, thereby changing the individual's social action." [Re-education, as Karl Marx believed, teaches that by changing the environment you can change the person, that a "healthy social environment" will produce a "healthy" social person. "The essence of man is not an abstraction inherent in each particular individual." "The real nature of man is the totality of social relations." Karl Marx Thesis on Feuerbach # 6  "It is not individualism that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society is the necessary framework through which freedom and individuality are made realities… only in a socialist society." Karl Marx "Only within a social context individual man is able to realize his own potential as a rational being." Karl Marx Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right'  "The individual is emancipated in the social group." Norman O. Brown  Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History.] "If the individual complies merely from fear of punishment [for doing wrong] rather than through the dictates of his free will and conscience [this combination of free will, a persons desires—dopamine emancipation, and his conscience, prier laws of restraint he has learned which impede dopamine emancipation (this combination  of "free will and conscience" is confusion i.e. the fusing of opposites which produces instability, uncertainty; "Man is free from all ties binding him to spiritual authorities [voice of restraint, over the environment], but this very freedom leaves him alone and anxious, overwhelms him with a feeling of his own individual insignificance and powerlessness." Erick Fromm Escape from Freedom) is where a person is willing to finding the middle ground―through negotiation and compromise (dialogue with self and others)―to maintain relationships with the world for the purpose of acceptance and advancement in the current environment; "In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence."  Jürgen Habermas Knowledge & Human Interest; in other words right and wrong become situational to the environment], the new set of values he is expected to accept does not assume in him the position of super-ego [the super-ego―incorporating similar (what we have in common with the environmental around us)―is not the same thing as the conscience―based on contrast (objective truth directing us in knowing and doing right and not wrong despite the influences of the immediate environment)], and his re-education [paradigm change, brain washed of patriarchal paradigm of right and wrong—detachment of the mind from an authority over his self-environment nature, resulting in individualism detached from higher authority (anxiety) and thus able to more easily reattach his mind to his own social nature, his dopamine craving nature, common to all mankind] therefore remains unrealized."  (Kurt Lewin)

"How can free acceptance of a new system of values be brought about? The individual accepts the new system of values and beliefs by accepting belongingness to a group [accepting the environmental press towards collective pleasure changes the persons way of thinking]."  (Kurt Lewin)  brackets and emphasis added   In this way, the desire for group approval re-moves (physically, emotionally, and mentally) a person from his duty to obey God or parent.  He in effect changes his paradigm from objective truth to subjective truth. "The new system of values and beliefs [i.e. the environment, group belongingness ] dominates the individual's perception."  ibid.   The eyes are stronger than the ears (seen any commercials lately).  Faith does not come by sight but by hearing, and hearing by the word of God; Eve "saw" the environment (perception: looked to the world, the environment, for the understanding life, by doing so she made her senses the bases of evaluation for what is good and what is evil in the environment; approach pleasure, pleasure is good, avoid pain, pain is evil, thus God's command, not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil for fear of pain since it was evil becomes non-sense since perception confirmed to her desires it was pleasurable and therefore good and therein God's command became irrelevant, since by sight the tree was good and not evil as declared by God), Jesus heard God's written word and spoke it, "but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live." Deuteronomy 8:3

"If human rights are to be guaranteed, they must be guaranteed by appropriate social, political, and economic controls of human behavior."  "The methodological correlate of individualism which democratic ideology leads us to oppose is the elevation of unchecked private, individual judgment [read: those commanded and directed by God] as an ultimate arbiter in the control of human conduct." Kenneth Benne  Human Relations in Curriculum Change  (HRCC) information in brackets added for clarity.

HRCC is a soviet training manual, promoted by the NEA in the late 40's and early 50's, whose methods are being used today in literally every facet of the world we live i.e. sensitivity training, T-groups, encounter groups, consensus, etc.  People who participated in and were learning to apply this material, school superintendents for example, committed suicide during training sessions in Bethel, Maine in its earlier years. I don't know if that continues today, the suicides that is, since they now bring people down from these sessions through debriefing.  National Training Laboratories, known as NTL's, are busily putting out these soviet programmed leaders today.  Sadly back in the 20's there were those in position of influence who recognized the change these program were having upon education and government and yet were not able to stop its encroachment upon Americas freedom.  "Has authority been banished in these later days? Has the world reached a point where it will condone the formation of pupil soviets?" (Will C. Woods, Superintendent of Public Instruction of the State of California March 1921 responding to movements he saw in California's school system.)  The soviet, a council of public-private partnership (a peoples council of consentaneous dialogue, dialogue which negates decisions making with a top-down language), was developed to neutralize, marginalize, and remove restraints to social change.  In its focus upon relationship building, joined with social progress, as in the French Directorate, those with established principles (unchangeable) are exposing as resisters to change and then either converted or removed.  In this way any social progress is of, by, and for humanists. Thus elected officials establish and then funded these departments i.e. soviets which comprehensively network between all branches of government, bringing them into consensus for the sake of a socialist/humanist defined common cause (a Politburo).  Human Relations in Curriculum Change describes how to "design and construct environmental conditions" to control "the behavior of men," (Benne) to "guarantee appropriate social, political, and economic control of human behavior."  (Carl Rogers)

"Dr. Skinner says: ‘We must accept the fact that some kind of control of human affairs is inevitable. We cannot use good sense in human affairs unless someone engages in the design and construction of environmental conditions which affect the behavior of men." "By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior―the motives, the desires, the wishes.  The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." Carl Rogers On becoming a person  underlined text were italics in original  Why would anyone object to role-playing their "hearts desires?"  The woman in the Garden in Eden didn't, nor did Adam.

"We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." Carl Rogers, as quoted in People Shapers, by Vance Packard, Bantam Books, 1977, reprint 1979.

Social engineers know the effect the environment has upon us (our desire to relate with and find approval from the environment i.e. unconditional approval from others), and are dedicated in using it to control mankind. "But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed." James 1:14  An example of this wickedness can be found in the man "Church Growth" is built upon, Peter Drucker and his marketing methods used in 'growing' the 'church' as a business adventure, i.e. making customers, i.e. consumers.  Without God's direction, and your willful participation in it, through self-control and self-discipline i.e. humbling and denying yourself before Him (and being lead by his Holy Spirit), you have no hope in overcoming the effects of this world, i.e. its quest to control the environment, subsequently to control your mind.  Therefore "set your mind on things above", otherwise you will have no hope in escaping the ensuing judgment this world faces.

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."  2 Timothy 3, 4

When the brain receives the message of pleasure, via dopamine liberation, several things automatically happen, it becomes attentive of the environment (awareness of the environment is heightened), it triggers the body to respond in the direction of the pleasure (muscles are automatically activated) i.e. the child reaches his hands out for more candy, and memory is quickened to store or recall where the pleasure was noticed and how the pleasure can be attained. In other words, what were the conditions with which the person received more pleasure than that which made him aware of its presence. Thus the child thinks upon the stimulation (environment) which triggered the response (reaction), with the hope of either continuing in the environment of pleasure or restoring the environment which produced the pleasure, if it was removed, or if the source of the pleasure is absent then thinking, via imagination, how to find or produce an environment which would provide the pleasure"the imagination of the heart." see Genesis 6:5; 8:21 The child, playing with a toy, enjoys the dopamine emancipated by relationship with the toy in the environment, thus he craves the dopamine which the toy stimulates through the senses of touch, taste (lead free of course), sight, smell, and sound.  He can also stimulate dopamine emancipation by simply thinking upon the toy when it is not present in the environment. In this way, according to social engineers ("change agents," facilitators who make "change" easy), learning must become a pleasurable experience produced by "proper" environment control (to stimulate dopamine emancipation), an environment easily created through role-playing, sensitivity training, T-groups, etc.

"Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." 2 Timothy 3:7

As Immanuel Kant explained, in his book Critique of Pure Reason, our hope is to attain happiness, happiness is found in pleasure, and pleasure is found in the mind, in our awareness of pleasure in the world and our reasoning to attain or retain it.  This line of "reasoning" (the pursuit of the feeling of "happiness") is thus materialistic, focusing upon that which is of the environment, the world. Social-psychology is build upon this kind of humanistic reasoning.  My hope is not found in the pleasures of this world but rather my hope is found in Christ, who is my Joy and my Peace (a byproduct of the Holy Spirit, Christ in me, knowing me), who are not of this world (in it but not of it). Apart from hope in him all hope is vain, all other hope depends upon this world and its influences, "What can I get out relationship with it for me," a hope which is not lasting.

Dendrite: "any of the usually branching (tree like) protoplasmic processes that conduct impulses toward the body of a neuron." Merriam-Webster Dictionary

The ten billion or more neurons which make up the vast portion of the brain contain a trillion dendrites or more, some neurons containing upwards of 10,000 dendrites each.   Dendrites connect neurons to other neurons in the brain via synaptic gaps.  It is in these dendrites, or the area thereof, where the experience of life, of pleasure in this case, is recorded or stored,  in many cases all across the brain, like a holograph.  Upon first imprinting there is a sense of pleasure experienced, some so strongly imprinted i.e. first love, you may never forget it or get over it.  But once this information is experienced, a repeating of the experience, a reinforcing of the imprint within the brain, going over the same pathway, produces less satisfaction or pleasure.  Thus an experience which was pleasurable to begin with can become boring (unexciting), the more it is repeated. We thus look for new things in the environment to restore the "rush." It is in this way we learn about the world around us.  We by nature, by God's design, approach pleasure as well as avoid pain. Our interest in knowing about the world around us is tied to this pleasure derived from new information being stored in the brain, whether stimulated from the environment around us or from our own environment, created within our mind, from our own imagination or our own reasoning abilities.

"O Timothy, keep [keep watch over, to observe so you can escape] that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing [voluntarily engaged in] have erred [deviated from the truth] concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen." 1 Timothy 6:20, 21  information in brackets inserted for definition of Greek words, φυλάσσω, επαγγέλλω, and, αστοχέω respectively.

When we have to memorize information (having to experience and accept "status quo," "this is the way it is," accept obedience to the person or persons mandating acceptance of established conditions i.e. non-changing laws and rules), which might be pleasurable to begin with (due to their attention), we often lose interest, it becomes a difficult task to keep our mind on the subject.  This is because our mind, in love with, and ever pursuing (looking for), a dopamine stimulating environment, in an ever changing world, in an effort to stimulate dopamine "emancipation," easily begins looking outside the limited, obedience mandated environment (our text book, etc.) to find something around us, within the surrounding environment, to stimulation its release, or when that is not possible i.e. the teacher is watching us, we create an imaginary world of our own for the stimulation of dopamine.

    "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."
    "The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish."
 Psalms 1:1-6

When we meditate upon the word of God (muse over it, evaluating our life and our surrounding environment from if) we must accept it as is and learn (memorize) it as is, not changing it, not letting the environmental pressure of our desires (approval from others), our feelings and thoughts, our sensual quest for dopamine stimulation, change it (change it to make it fit within the environment and our temporal, dopamine based desires—making it "contemporary," changing it to keep it up with the fleeting moments of the changing times), making it a dopamine stimulating bible (making it an interpretation of man's making; beware of this deception for the prophecies of scripture are God breathed and are not the result of private interpretation. 2 Peter 1:20).  Humanists, with their quest of negating the spread of Christianity around the world, market the development of the imagination ("How did you feel," "What did you think?") at the expense of memorization ("What did God say?"), i.e. "less is more."  For example: "Memory is not education, answers are not knowledge. Certainty and memory are the enemies of thinking, the destroyer of creativity and originality."   (William Glasser,  Schools Without Failure)   "Any time we teach a child something, we keep him from discovering it himself," (Piaget) 

Man, made in God's image, making god in his image.

In other words, they are saying "We don't have any disagreement with the scriptures as long as they don't interfere with our relationship with the world.  As long as the meaning of the scriptures can be changed, to keep them current (not interfering) with the changing times, we can fit (twist) them into our world view."  This can be "justified" (falsely) in an effort to minister the "love" of God to the next generation.  This way of thinking would be in line with Karl Marx, who wrote: "Laws must not fetter human life; but yield to it; they must change as the needs and capacities of the people change." Karl Marx Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled." 2 Corinthians 10:3-6

"O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23b

It is up to the parent to guide the child in which environment or things in the environment to approach and which environment or things in the environment to avoid, what things in the environment to attend to and what things to turn away from, what things in the environment to think upon (meditate upon) and what things to refuse to think upon, even to repudiate. It is up to the parent to instruct the child in not letting the environment control their behavior. " Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:11

"Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby."  Hebrews 12:11

If the item of attention, an item which attracts the child, is forbidden by the parent, it is up to the parent to instruct the child in the practice of not attending to it (learning self-control and self-discipline).  This is done by verbally warning the child and if necessary using physical force.  The child must learn, sometimes through chastening, the difference between what is right (the prefix of righteousness is the word right) in the environment and what is wrong.

"And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me:" Jeremiah 16:12

The rebellious child will see the parent as a negative force fieldin his imagination, in his inner eyes (fixated upon the world of his own making, i.e. a world the way it "ought" to be, a world where he can actualize within himself, in agreement with his temporal desires), the rebellious child is still in love with himself and the things of this world, he does not meditate upon the parents commands, their "Is" and "Not's" (This is right and that is not) but continues to dialogue within himself, continues to murmur (like the 10 unfaithful spies. Numbers 14:36), continues to sulk (like Cain Genesis 4:6), continues to dream about his own heart's desires (in the imagination of his unrighteous heart), continues to think upon his own "ought's," as in "I ought to be able to go out." i.e. "I ought to be able to go out to get dopamine from the environment which is calling me to play with it."

"Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied."  Proverbs 27:20

As the Marxist-Freudian (social-psychologist) Kurt Lewin put it: "The negative valence of a forbidden object which in itself attracts the child thus usually derives from an induced field of force of an adult."  (Kurt Lewin; A Dynamic Theory of Personality, 1935)  The "negative valence" is a tension, anxiety (angst) or dread, causing a person to withdraw (alienate himself) from an "object which in itself attracts" him, and is the result of the parent or "adult" inducing a "field of force," i.e. threat of chastening the child, "chastened us after their own pleasure" Hebrews 12:10.  When parents instructs their children (indoctrinate or inculcate them, which means to repeat over and over or "beat" it into them, until they get it) to avoid what the parent establishes as "a forbidden object" in the environment, the office of the parent is reified in the mind of the child, i.e. the parent is accepted as the definer of reality, determining for the child what is good and what is evil in the environment, thus his commands are greater than the call of the worldly environment (the temptations of the world). This action (praxis) of the traditional home (patriarchal paradigm) prepares the child to accept the authority and wisdom of God and his chastening "but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness." Hebrews 12:10

"Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. Therefore let no man glory in men." 1 Corinthians 3:18-21

Lewin then explained how to negate the effect of the "negative valence" (the controlling voice of the parent in the mind—restraint), the fear of judgment, and thus overcoming the "negative force field" (the authority of the parent), respect for the office of authority—this negation is known as the praxis of "negation of negation" (the synthesis of the dialectical process) or patricide (death to God, the negative voice, the restrainer, the father—you don't kill them, you just justify to yourself they are irrelevant; "Often this is too challenging a goal for the individual to achieve on his own [he needs the help of a facilitated group meeting], and the net effect is either maladjustment or the embracing of a philosophy of life developed by others." Krathwohl and Bloom Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain). Lewin wrote: "If this field of force loses its psychological existence for the child (e.g., if the adult goes away or loses his authority [in the child's mind that is i.e. the feelings and thoughts of the child or adult]) the negative valence also disappears (the fear of judgment disappears)." (Kurt Lewin; ibid.)  This is powerful stuff and has major effect upon the people who participate.

"See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;  I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them." Deuteronomy 30:15-20

If the environment stimulates dopamine emancipation and if restraint inhibits dopamine emancipation (repression/depression) and if dopamine emancipation for all mankind is the desired outcome and environment control is the key to a common (collective) dopamine emancipation (consensus) then an environment free of restraint (pro-spontaneity, only possible through the "negation of negation," the removal of negative thoughts"I can not"and negative minded people—"Thou shalt not," "fundamental religious extremists" i.e. a uncompromising, nonconformist person) is essential for social emancipation.  Hate of sin, which separates man from God, is replaced with hate of restraint (hate, disguised as "concern" for resistors of change), which separates man from man (alienates him from his own nature and the environment around him).  Thus by moving our focus from sin to restraint we move our focus from God to man. Man becomes the basis of "right and wrong" thinking and behavior, since it is now "scientifically" measurable, becomes materialistic. The spirit of mankind, in harmony with himself (in agreement; consensusa moment of collective dopamine emancipation), replaces the individual guided by the Holy Spirit of God, able to stand aloneagainst his own nature, against the collective willwhen necessary, according to God's will.

"Religion, especially the Protestant Christian tradition, has permeated our culture with the concept that man is basically sinful, and only by something approaching a miracle can his sinful nature be negated." "I have little sympathy with the rather prevalent concept that man is basically irrational, and that his impulses, if not controlled, will lead to destruction of others and self." Carl Rogers On becoming a person

If the parent looses his control over the environment in which the child lives, if the community or someone in it either removes the parent's control over the child's environment, i.e. the parents power to chasten is forbidden, or the child is placed in an environment where the parent's control is limited (no longer based upon the standards of the parent but now based upon the desires of the community in harmony with the desires of the child), or the parent, willfully for some reason (out of fear of rejection by others, or lose of property or person), participates in the environment of permissiveness, the parent looses control over the child's dopamine craving desires, desires for that which is in the environment which liberates dopamine in the child, the parent loses control over the child's behavior and thus the parent looses his child to the world, to those who want to control, to possess him, within its influence.  Men who think like Theodor Adorno now influence almost every issue of our social environment, men who hold the traditional family in contempt, with its restraint upon man's fallen nature i.e. restraining his love for pleasure—inhibiting his socially approved stimulation of dopamine.

"An attitude of complete submissiveness toward ‘supernatural forces' and a readiness to accept the essential incomprehensibility of ‘many important things' strongly suggest the persistence in the individual of infantile attitudes toward the parents, that is to say, of authoritarian submission in a very pure form." "Authoritarian submission was conceived of as a very general attitude that would be evoked in relation to a variety of authority figures‑‑parents, older people, leaders, supernatural power, and so forth."  "Family relationships are characterized by fearful subservience to the demands of the parents and by an early suppression of impulses not acceptable to them." "The conception of the ideal family situation for the child: uncritical obedience to the father and elders, pressures directed unilaterally from above to below, inhibition of spontaneity and emphasis on conformity to externally imposed values." "God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority." "The power‑relationship between the parents, the domination of the subject's family by the father or by the mother, and their relative dominance in specific areas of life also seemed of importance for our problem."  Theodor Adorno  The Authoritarian Personality

When the parents' hedge of protection is removed from the child, and the child willingly participates in his liberation from the parents' hedge of protection, the child becomes absorbed (consumed) by the environment, an environment which is infatuated in the possession of his soul. Thus gestalt, "The whole is different than the sum of the parts" (equality has swallowed of discrimination, unity has swallowed up alienation, the feeling of community, or oneness with the environment has swallowed up individuals who once looked up to authority and lived for authority superior to the environment), is actualized. This blueprint (general systems analysis) also applies to all men in all institutions: in the home, in the country, in the city, in the county, in the state, in the nation, in the worldin government, in the workplace, in education, in the church, etc.  This is exactly what Kurt Lewin, and social-psychologists like him, wanted. As Warren Bennis wrote:  "Any non-family-based collectivity [the community, through discourse, seeking equality in "justified" stimulation of dopamine emancipation—if it is common to human nature (the pursuit of homeostasis with the environment i.e. pleasure, holism i.e. nature drawing us to unity with it or wholism, God in nature, in the "planetary society," drawing us to unity with him/it, known as pantheism, general systems, etc., thus finding peace, nirvana,  shambhala, etc.), and is good for the "purpose" of uniting humanity (does not lead to social cacophony, the "exploding" of civilization), it is thus justifiable to negate or weaken any institution which interferes with natures evolutionary progression toward unity and equality; "for equality to take place the family as a unite must be weakened"  James Coleman] that intervenes between parent and child and attempts to regulate and modify the parent-child relationship will have a democratizing [injurious to a top-down, patriarchal paradigm] impact on that relationship."  "...any intervention between parent and child tend to produce familial democracy regardless of its intent. The consequences of family democratization take a long time to make themselves felt—but it would be difficult to reverse the process once begun. … once the parent can in any way imagine his own orientation to be a possible liability to the child in the world approaching … once uncertainty is created in the parent how best to prepare the child for the future, the authoritarian family is moribund, regardless of whatever countermeasures may be taken. The state, by its very interference in the life of its citizens, must necessarily undermine a parental authority which it attempts to restore."  Warren Bennis The Temporary Society The public voice annihilates the private voice when they go into partnership. To dialogue your belief (theoretically discoursing categorical imperatives), for the purpose of achieving consensus, negates belief, negates faith, negates religion, turning your belief into an opinion. "For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." 1 Corinthians 1:19-21

"... the concept of the world as the totality of facts is connected with a correspondence notion of truth and a semantic conception of justification. The social world, as the totality of legitimately ordered interpersonal relations, is accessible only from the participant's perspective;  in the pragmatic presuppositions of rational discourse or deliberation the normative content of the implicit assumptions of communicative action is generalized, abstracted, and freed from all limits [freed from above nature restraints] — the practice of deliberation is extended to an inclusive community that does not in principle exclude any subject capable of speech and action who can make relevant contributions."  Jürgen Habermas 1998 Communicative Ethics The inclusion of the Other. Studies in Political Theory.

Lewin knew that within all of us there is a desire for relationship with others (achieved through communication or discourseeven between parents and their children), the desire for camaraderie (an informal feeling of trust, oneness, and acceptance, laden with the prospective continued stimulation of dopamine), which he called "play behavior."  He also knew that there were commands, and the ensuing fear of judgment, we had learned from our parents, and others in authority (people in the past), a "negative valence" toward "forbidden objects" which blocked our participation within the environment in the present (thus producing behavior antithetical to dopamine liberation for ourselves as well as for others), which he called "barrier behavior."    He also knew that by creating an environment where both "play and barrier behavior" (our desire to be accepted—loved—by the world around us and our desire to be love by those in authority over us) would be brought into a dialectical juxtapositioninto a manipulated or controlled environment of conflict between play and barrier i.e. tension—the environment would usually forces the participants to chose (re-chose) the "play behavior" (dopamine—approval by the world) over the "barrier behavior" (dopamine renunciation—fidelity to principles)By producing an internal pressure, known as cognitive dissonance, ("The lack of harmony between what one does and what one believes." "The pressure to change either one's behavior or ones belief."  Ernest R. Hilgard, Introduction to Psychology  Realize that our behavior may be one thing while our internal desire, our "natural" inclination to behave may be another, while externally we may be avoiding or rejecting something, internally, via dopamine emancipation, we may actually be wanting it, thus given liberty—uninhibited freedom to respond in a dopamine emancipating environment—our behavior can be emancipated from belief.) the participants would be caught between acceptance by the group (camaraderie, a dopamine moment) or rejection by the group (not a dopamine moment).  By holding to their hard held beliefs they would face the pain of estrangement from those who they wanted relationship with, in the community (by the removal of relationship via disapproval from others, in a selective environment, participants in a project can be moved away from openly declaring and defending their belief and thus begin the praxis of tolerating and embracing the opinions of others to restore and build interpersonal relationships—dopamine emancipation restores a person to those things in the environment which originally attracted him, helping him to "overcome" a self-environmental dialectical rift, a rift caused by commands enforced by an authoritarian voiced outside of and above the laws of nature, repressing the laws of the flesh).

"few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity [their belief] in the face of apparent group unanimity; and the individual rejects critical feelings toward the group at this time to avoid a state of cognitive dissonance.  To question the value or activities of the group, would be to thrust himself into a state of dissonance.  Long cherished but self-defeating beliefs and attitudes may waver and decompose in the face of a dissenting majority.  Irvin Yalom Theory and Practice and Group Therapy bracketed information added

Alienation is the most painful experience in life (a non-dopamine moment i.e. resulting in depression if the person can not find outside restoration of "purpose").  When our relationship with others become our escape from depression (depression, due to the lack of dopamine emancipation, emancipation stimulated by the environment, their presence liberating dopamine, this is why it is painful when we lose loved ones, they die or move away) then we are subject to those who control the environment  Social-psychologists know that, and purposely use that knowledge to move people away from their belief.  This is why we must continue always to trust in our Savior and Lord, not laying down our shield of faith ("Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God,"  Romans 10:17  "Faith is the victory which overcometh the world" 1 John 5:4), we must overcome the accuser and his accusations by enduring in Christ (suffering rejection by others because they love not the truth) to the end. "And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." Revelation 12:11

"Once a member realizes that others accept him and are trying to understand him, then he finds it less necessary to hold rigidly to his own beliefs;" ibid (Yalom)

 "Judges problems in terms of situation, issues, purposes, and consequences involved rather than in terms of fixed, dogmatic precepts …." Benjamin S. Bloom  Taxonomy of Education Objectives Book I Cognitive Domain 1956   

The key to success for the social-psychologist, is to create an environment in favor with the group environment craving the pleasures of dopamine (group approval), a group environment unreceptive toward (contemptuous of, if not hostile toward) the parental authority figure (seen as an uninvited "process-commentator") with his paradigmatic fixation upon restrainta patriarchal paradigm (the source neurosis, the source of disconnection from the environment—self-environmental dialectical rift, alienation from the people who we love and want love from, alienation caused by our belief).  Thus the work of deception, known as 'group dynamics,' for which Lewin is famous, has become the foundation for achieving social harmony around the world (used even in the "Church" today,  the enlightened church that is).

"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.  Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin." Hebrews 12:1-4

For this process to be successful it is essential that participants reveal their restrained desires, their secret life of rebellion towards authority, their "ought's," their "secret" dreams i.e. dreams of liberation from the commands which turned them against things in the environment, things which stimulated the liberation of dopamine, things which must now be resisted, their pleasures denied, for the sake of approval by God, by parent, or some other higher authority.  "The individual may have ‘secret' thoughts which he will under no circumstances reveal to anyone else if he can help it. To gain access is particularly important, for here may lie the individual's potential." Theodor Adorno The Authoritarian Personality

"In a democratic society a patriarchal culture should make us depressed instead of glad; it is an argument against the higher possibilities of human nature, of self actualization."  Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management

According to Kurt Lewin, it was one thing to recognize the source of neurosis (high regard for parental authority), it was another to overcome its domination over society (civil disobedience towards authority works best since individual disobedience is perceptually not strong enough to make change) and its "victims" (the social engineer who can not initiate and sustain control over the environment; the physical, mental, and social environment that is. This is the reason why those programmed in social-psychology are so vicious towards the traditional home when they do eventually gain control of the community, under the banners of "tolerance" and "change").  Lewin wrote about how the social engineer is able to destabilize and then desensitize people of the honoring of the office of their father and mother (sear the conscience): "... change in organization can be derived from the overlapping between play and barrier behavior.  To be governed by two strong goals is equivalent to the existence of two conflicting controlling heads within the organism.  This should lead to a decrease in degree of hierarchical organization.  Also, a certain disorganization should result from the fact that the cognitive-motor system loses to some degree its character of a good medium because of these conflicting heads.  It ceases to be in a state of near equilibrium; the forces under the control of one head have to counteract the forces of the other before they are effective." (Barker, Dembo, & Lewin, "frustration and regression: an experiment with young children" found in Child Behavior and Development, p. 457.)

unity built upon "felt" needs
uniting the world by way of a collective emancipation of dopamine

Out of diversity (deviancy), one (unity). That is, out of many brought into the environment of confusion (fussing play and barrier behavior—fussing public which is informal, "Can't we all get along." and private, which is formal, "This is mine and not yours."), a new world order can be created, an order where anyone who blocks or inhibits social harmony, is perceived as being injurious to others (including children) experiencing a socially stimulated dopamine moment (tolerant of and in love with an every moving, ever changing world) is excluded from playing with the world, blocked from experiencing respect and support from the community (not a dopamine moment), and prevented from having any voice of persuasion within the community (since the community can no longer be persuaded with sound reason but only influenced by its identity with the environmental drawits common quest for peace and pleasure i.e. dopamine emancipation, it can only glaze over when presented with truth, glaze over out of fear of what others might say if they agree with the truth, others now being their "supplier" of dopamine).

"... consciousness must develop a dialectical contradiction between its immediate interests [dopamine for self] and its long-term objectives [dopamine for all], …Only when the immediate interests are integrated into a total view [the world united upon the senses—consensus] and related to the final goal of the process [deliberation in praxisdon't just feel and think it, do it, in a group i.e. facilitators, like witches, do it in a circle] do they become revolutionary," "Marx sees … consciousness as ‘practical critical activity' with the task of ‘changing the world'."  György Lukács History & Class Consciousness Class Consciousness March, 1920  [brackets added]

By the praxis of this heresiarchal paradigm (a way of thinking fixated upon change), participants (clients) move their focus from the one who brings restraint ("barriers") into their lives, teaching them self-restraint, to those who open unto them a life of "possibilities," reachable from the environment before them. "For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts." Psalms 10:3, 4

"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels."  Luke 9:23-26

If the child persists in attending to the forbidden item (chasing after dopamine), chastening by the parent will become necessary.  For those who love this world and the pleasure of it, this very act of parental chastening of children (chastening their child over those things which by nature attracted the child to the world and its pleasures, things which are seen by those of the world as being "harmless" to the child) is perceived as abusive to the child, abusive to the child's health, his cognitive, affective, and, psychomotor development, his discovering of his own person i.e. his becoming one with the world—holisticChild abuse (the parent "deforming" the child's physical, mental, and social health, by refusing to allow the child to become one with his environment, causing a self-environmental dialectical rift. This obstruction of the child's desires to experience the environment of his world, according to social-psychologist, produces a Neurolinguistics stagnation in the developing child—produces a lasting neurosis) is consequent through this line of "reasoning," its "logical outgrowth."

"My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth."  Proverbs 3:8

Thus, two year olds are simply drug seekers, seeking the drug of dopamine, which the environment around them stimulates.  These druggies will become addicted to the things of this world (self-seeking, self-willed) if they do not learn to gain control over their own natural, carnal, worldly inclinations.  Those who are addicted to the seeking after dopamine liberation, through their child's addiction to seeking after dopamine liberation i.e. pleasure ("Oh! Isn't that cute.  Boys will be boys."), are nothing short of drug pushers themselves (facilitators are in fact drug pushers, controlling the environment so they can shape it in such a way so they can produce a group hug, Dionysian, orgiastic, Eros, collective, togetherness, dopamine driven moment for all within the environment, including themselves—striving for universal reconciliation).  In this case they do not directly produce the drug, they instead create, through manipulate, an environment with which the drug is loosed within the child or adult.  In this way the child becomes an addict to pleasure, never experiencing total withdrawal, until he commits a crime (committed to attain more pleasure, more release of dopamine) and then punished, maybe punished—it all depends upon his social worth at the time.

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."  Proverbs 22:6

 "And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."  Ephesians 6:4

(Provoke as in poking something with a stick to aggravate it. "Nurture" means chastisement in Greek.  Admonition means a gentile reproof or warning against oversight according to Merriam-Webster dictionary). When parents chasten  their children for seeking pleasure from forbidden objects, they are in effect training them on how to get themselves under control, to train themselves to control their own flesh, to help them realize that they too have an office of authority, an office of authority over their own selves—over a self which loves pleasure, which wants dopamine forever. Thus chastened children, by parents or God, have experienced withdrawal from the intoxicating pleasures of this life, making it harder for the world to seduce them. (Read Revelation 17 for a clear picture of worldly intoxication.)  Social engineers know that when dopamine withdrawal is learned by the child, i.e. that children have learned self-control, it makes their job of controlling the environment more difficult, for their job is to control the next generation of children for the sake of a one world dopamine party i.e. a future world of "peace."  By introducing something into the environment, something which draws the person's attention, something which gives them a dopamine rush, something which they secretly have been desiring to have or to relate with—something they were not to have or to relate with according to their parent or God—by then giving them hope in attaining their secret hearts desire, by gaining their trust and disarming their fear of danger or judgment (the warnings of parent or God), by creating a safe zone, while feeding their rising expectation, a facilitator, like a charlatan, like a pedophile, like the serpent in the Garden of Eden, can seduce a child or an adult (under the control of their influence) and use them for their own "purpose" (DUI: Driving, or in this case Deliberating while Under the Influence of a dopamine stimulating environment results in the person crashing into and burning with the worldly environment).

"But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.  Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses."   Titus 6:6-11

When your money is not the Lord's money, it is drug money.  You put it in the bank, or store it up (money is stored up potential pleasure with which you can, according to your desires, control or pick an environment to stimulate dopamine discharge), or invest it, for your present or future pleasure (creating or placing yourself in an environment which triggers the release of dopamine)—you hope you can live long enough to enjoy it (get your fill of dopamine, which is never lasting, via good food, messagesif you are into thatetc., viewing beautiful sunsets, mountains, etc., receiving the admiration and respect—love—of men, etc.), or you hope the courts will honour your last will and testimony so that those you love can live in or create an environment which stimulates its release.

"For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Matthew 24:38, 39

It is not money which is the problem, it is the love of it, over and against God's will for you.  It is not pleasure which is the problem, it is the love of it, over and against God's will for you—the praxis of addiction.  God gave us all dopamine, God is not against money or pleasure. Without it you would be depressed and you would be depressing to all those around you. Yet there are many times in your life you must put pleasure to the side, you must practice withdrawalalienation from the world of pleasure.  Changing diapers is not a dopamine moment, you do it because of your love for your child, or elderly parent.  Obeying your parents is not always a dopamine moment, you do it because it is the right thing to do, in the Lord.

If we follow the pattern of the syllogism "If A = B and if B = C then A = C" and apply "control of the environment" to A, and "control of dopamine" to B, and "control of man" to C then we can present the formula for the control of man according to the dialectical pattern applied by social engineers/humanists: "If whoever controls the environment controls the liberation of or withdrawal from dopamine and if the liberation of or withdrawal from dopamine controls man then whoever controls the environment controls man."  It is easy to understand the liberation of dopamine is positive and the withdrawal from dopamine (self-control, self-restraint) is usually taught by force or threat of force (judgment) and is negative. The outcomes are diabolically opposed to one another, as explained in Walden Two.

For the parents today, with youth who are hooked on the environment which stimulates dopamine emancipation, it has become a nightmare to find any ground for communication.  Satisfaction of their habits supersedes any recognition of their addiction.   Self worth outweighs any sense of personal obligation and responsibility, unless it adds to their self-worth.  The worth of the parents becomes the financial benefit they provide to the child's habits.  The same can be said for governments run by departments bleeding the citizens to support their habits of socially controlled dopamine emancipation. Take their source of pleasure away (tax dollars), and they accuse the citizens of being extremists, spying on them (distrustful), hateful of the "general publics welfare," all the time concerned about their own hide, their paycheck (Abraham Maslow wrote of his own hypocrisy, his desire for financial gain, in his journals.  Hypocrisy like Judas Iscariot). "Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein." John 12:4-6  "…the therapist embarks on a many-layered effort to transform a sense of personal dissatisfaction [having to obey parents' orders against one's desires since the parents have the bag of money] into a decision to change, and then into the act of change [take the bag of money away from the parents via taxes for social programs i.e. the funds to enforce them—who can speak against the caring for children and the disadvantaged].  The true purpose of humanists controlling the finances of the general public is to undue the effects of early childhood in a patriarchal structured homesthe effects the home was having upon the next generation and the effect they were having upon government.  "Among the strongest of these is man's need for an omnipotent, omniscient, omnicaring parent, which together with his infinite capacity for self-deception creates a yearning for and a belief in a superbeing." "Freud referred to as the group's ‘need to be governed by unrestricted force . . . it's extreme passion for authority . . . it's thirst for obedience.'"  Irvin Yalom  Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy

humanization: " a philosophy that usually rejects supernaturalism and stresses an individual's dignity and worth and capacity for self-realization through reason."  Merriam-Webster's dictionary

Impulse or "mimesis" are socio-psychological words for our bodies automatic response to stimulation from the surrounding environment.  Approaching pleasure, according to humanism, is the essence, is the ether, the influence of life, the calling of nature, of the creation, for man to become again one with it. Any standards, above nature standards i.e. revelation, which can not be shared in common with mankind, which blocks the common human pursuit of happiness (dopamine emancipation), which can not be recognized as common to humanity, which can not be exposed and comprehended through discourse, which inhibit the liberation of human experiences (experience being the emancipation of dopamine in harmony with the environment, the materialistic pathway to the discovery of peace—consensus, reasoning in harmony with the senses), is, according to the precepts of humanism, an "opiate."

 "In Gramsci's view, it was only through the creation of organisms capable of uniting the masses and channeling their spontaneity, that the revolution could command majority assent and hence overcome definitively the power of the capitalist State.

"The conception of the ideal family situation for the child:  (1) uncritical obedience to the father and elders, (2) pressures directed unilaterally from above to below, (3) inhibition of spontaneity, and (4) emphasis on conformity to externally imposed values."

"God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority." Ibid.

The Gospel According to Karl Marx.

"Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the sentiment of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people." Karl Marx Selected writings in Sociology and Social Philosophy, translated by T. B. Bottomore

The "opiate" (the parent, or God who demands obedience and expects love from those under their authority) is a substitute, according to Marx, for the earthy thing, our true nature which can only be actualized through an open, non-restrained (rational) relationship with nature. The "opiate" is our love for an object (objective truth), our parent or God, a proxy, who alienates us from the love of the "actual" object, our true nature (dopamine-environment actualization), which the parent or God forbids relationship with.  The "opiate" is our obedience to a voice above the earthly things which draw us, obedience to a stand-in (an understudy), keeping us from relationship with the earthly things which attract, which draw us to them, for the "purpose" of actualizing our wholeness.  The "opiate" is an internalized, external voice (our conscience, "The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself." Norman O. Brown Life Against Death), a "negative valence," which blocks or obstructs our "sense perception" of the creation, which takes the place of our love of the creation (our "sensuous need"—the lust of the flesh), the love of the environment, the love of humanity in its earthy nature, in its natural environment. Without conscious awareness and praxis of the aesthetic dimension—the actualizing of sensuous thought, by way of sensuous experience with the earthy environment (sense experience, in the two forms of sense perception and sensuous need, that is, only when it proceeds from Nature."  Karl Marx ) the "opiate" can not be overcome, that is, according to Marx. "'It is true we do not like to admit,' the reverend gentleman argues, 'the power of sensuality; but it has such tremendous power over us only because we cast it out of us and will not recognize it as our own nature, which we should then be in a position to dominate if it tried to assert itself at the expense of reason, of true love and of will-power.'"  Marx The Holy Family  Marx believed that religion was the result of man's effort to find identity, but in the wrong place and in the wrong way (obedience to higher authority).  That mans true identity can only be found in his own nature, within nature—in humanism, in socialism, in "the village," in consensus.

Therefore to achieve sensuous experience (the collectively eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, a collective dopamine moment), a persons sensuous need to touch it, to relate with it sensuously, a sensuous need triggered subconsciously by the fleshes exposure to the environment which stimulates dopamine emancipation (fleshly desires which in the past were suppressed by commands or restraints), must be discovered (discovered by finding ones opinions regarding their own desires, their "felt" needs, and their own thoughts on the good life, the "good" life of pleasure, with questions which require no right or wrong answers i.e. questions void of extrinsic impute, impute restraining or hindering the thinking upon ones desiresparental or Godly commands).  The questioning process actually has an effect upon the person responding. By renewing their awareness (consciousness) of latent desire for parentally forbidden objects in the environment they are given renewed "hope" in happiness, which is pleasure, which is in the mind, which is dopamine emancipation uninhibited by extrinsic commands and restraint. Then a "friendly" environment, an environment which provides a sense perception, an environment which reactivates the sensuous need must be created.  Therein by providing freedom to experiment in a "safe environment," (void of parental or Godly threat of restraint) a person is able to, willingly, through the praxis of sensuous experience, re-discover their true human identity with the world around them. All that the apostate church has to do is identify a persons sensuous need, their need for love, their desire for human approval, for example, and then create an environment where such love can be sense perceived, without limitation or restraint (materialacceptance of the the person by the group, despite the persons deviant "lifestyle"), the person and the group can then feel free to collectively praxis sensuous experience in dialogue and in practice, in theory and in practice.  In this way any information or commands which hinders or blocks the collective sensuous experience is perceived as immaterial, irrational, and therefore irrelevant. (Common negates contrast. Our love for one another, our love for approval, negates God's love in us. God loves you but he hates sin.) To mingle the desire for love from man with the love of God is the praxis of confusion, required by Marx and Satan to bring "the religious" into the praxis of a sensuous agreement based, cunningly, on the extrapolated "word of God" (hedonistic Christianity). Thereby man is able to build the "church," not upon Christ, but rather upon the dialectical praxis of world unity, upon the antichrist.

Pride is simply your ability to control the environment by evaluating what in the environment is not initiating or sustaining pleasure (DE) and re-arranging it to either restore, maintain or create the conditions which provide pleasure for yourself.  In this way you are able to use the "uneducated," (you must get the public dumbed down, hooked on dopamine emancipation first) by providing an environment where the general public can "pursue" happiness (place their hope in happiness, which is pleasure, which is in the mind, which is dopamine emancipation, which is stimulated by the environment of the imagination—give them an illusion of future happiness to work towards), where you can be seen as their benefactor, so they are willing to sustain your supply of happiness (DE) since you provide them hope in the "pursuit" of theirs. Actually, you don't want them to see you as an object of pleasure, but as one they need to attain their pleasure.  Thus without you they can do nothing.

When one thinks about it, the pride of life is simply the ability one has, to evaluate (rational use of sense perception) acquired experiential knowledge of life's sensuous experiences (specific moments of dopamine emancipation) desired again (sensuous "need") along with the ability to justify them (through imagination or reasoning), to create future environmental conditions for themselves and others, i.e. to control the lives of others.  The stimulation of the neurotransmitter dopamine, the same chemical the child seeks after when it plays with a toy (controls the environment which stimulates the emancipation of dopamine) is the same neurotransmitter the head of the World Bank seeks after as he attempts to control the world, control the environment which stimulates the emancipation of dopamine. As the child tries to get the parent to find pleasure (dopamine emancipation) in the child's enjoyment with a toy (so he can play with it longerget more dopamine emancipation), the banker tries to get the citizen to find pleasure (dopamine emancipation) in their enjoyment of bigger toys (so they can play with it—get more dopamine emancipation).  In this way the child is able to control the parent (through their desire to keep the child's love) and the banker is able to control the citizens.  As long as the one in debt can satisfy his loan, even at the cost of his own pleasure, the banker is happy (he is getting his supply of dopamine emancipation). Unlike the child however, whose parents can end the child's attempt to control his world of pleasure, the debtor, if he does not satisfy the bankers supply of dopamine, can not stop the banker from taking his pleasure away.

Money is just stored up pleasure, stored up dopamine emancipation. The person, able to evaluate the environment, able to find what "turns people on," what triggers their dopamine emancipation, can skillfully control people.  By marketing to their "felt" needs, getting people to depend upon them for their daily supply of dopamine emancipation, their daily fix, they are able to control their own future supply.  In this way knowledge puffs up a person ego, he is able to guarantee an environment which stimulates his personal lust for dopamine emancipation. He is able to fill his toy box of treasures, his hearts desire, with items (things or people) which guarantee the stimulation of dopamine emancipation for himself forever. The person skilled in the process can thus keep the supply coming, by giving their "little workers" their supply as well.  The only difference being the skilled person in the process gains control over the workers gold and the "happy little worker" gets only the rush with no gold in the end since they considered the pleasure of the moment of more value than the gold. This is not only true for the world it is also true for the worldly church and its worldly ministers. Thus, with the accumulation of knowledge and the ability to evaluate the world, for the sake of dopamine emancipation for themselves and others, man is able to direct his own steps, looking down upon those who are "not educated" in the process, viewing them with contempt and arrogance, only as items to be bought and sold.

"For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence." 1 Corinthians 1: 26-29

Only those who are guided by the spirit of God and not the dopamine craving of the flesh can endure such temptations. This is why "not many mighty or noble are called."  Our collages, seminaries, even our grade schools and high schools, secular and religious, are now turning out a people skilled in the ways of the world, all seeking after the satisfaction of their "felt" needs, holding in derision those who walk in the knowledge of the truth, those who believe in the simplicity of the gospel, those laying aside the things of this world, daily dying to themselves, looking for a kingdom which is not made with human hands but one which is eternal, of God's own making.

" How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?" John 5:44

Lovers of the creator, the creator who judges and condemns man for following and justifying his own impulses, impulses seeking harmony with the creation (leading men to desire the approval of men, to "receive honour one of another" instead of desiring the approval of God "the honour that cometh from God only"), is, according to humanism, the source of alienation (Marx "The more of himself man attributes to God, the less he has left in himself." "The life which he has given to the object  sets itself against him as an alien and hostile force." Karl Marx MEGA I/3, pp. 83-84 According to Marx, the attention man gives to recognizing the commands of parents and God and the honoring and obeying them alienates himself from his own fleshly (worldly) identity and gives authority to the author of laws which restrain those natural, common to all mankind, fleshly desires.  "Personal relations between men have this character of alienation. Hegel and Marx have laid the foundations for the understanding of the problem of alienation." Erick Fromm Escape from Freedom  "Alienation is the experience of ‘estrangement' (Verfremdung) from others, . . ." "Alienation has a long history. Its most radical sense already appears in the biblical expulsion from Eden." "Alienation, according to Feuerbach, derives from the externalization (Entausserung) of human powers and possibilities upon a non-existent entity: God. . ." "God is thus the anthropological source of alienation . . ." "Alienation will continue so long as the subject engages in an externalization (Entausserung) of his or her subjectivity."  Bronner Of Critical Theory and its Theorists  "The immediate task is to unmask human alienation in its secular form, now that it has been unmasked in the sacred form."

It is those who establish such domination and defend positions of power of this sort who set in motion the causality of fate, divide society into social classes, suppress justified interests, call forth the reactions of suppressed life, and finally experience their just fate in revolution.

"It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."  Matthew 4:4

Jesus did not say man does not live by bread (or the pleasure you can receive by eating itwhich, when enjoyed, can stimulate dopamine in the brain), he said that man does not live by bread ALONE, but that man MUST live by every word which proceedeth out of the mouth of God.   "I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die." John 6:48-50

"For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."  Romans 7:22-25

God's word is not dopamine, although we can experience the release of dopamine from reading, hearing, or speaking it. If the experience of pleasure is that which you are seek in reading the word of God, you can learn a lot about the Bible (as far as human reasoning can take you), but you will never know the Lord, and he will never know you. Repentance is not a dopamine moment (it is not temporal; Romans 8), although it is a moment resulting in lasting Joy and Peace (Spiritual).  God's word is Spiritual. God's word, and his will worked out in you, to his good pleasure, result in the control of the love of dopamine—it is the praxis of withdrawal (extraction, departure, renunciation, denial, alienation, etc.)"He must increase, but I must decrease." John 3:30  It is not that the spiritual life can not have pleasure via. dopamine emancipation, it can, it is, dopamine emancipation is not spiritual.  We can walk in the spirit and be blessed with the temporal (have dopamine liberation), but we can lust for the temporal and walk in the spirit.  One is of God, the other is of the earth, we can only love one or the other, we can not love both, we can only serve one of the other.

"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?"  Romans 6:16

 "Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:  Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,  And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments." Deuteronomy 5:7-10

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."  Matthew 6:24  Sin does not rule over man, man rules over sin, by setting your mind on things of the earth, upon mammon, you rule to change the world (remove it of Godly restraint) to satisfy your earthly desires.  This is the essence of change, to live the life of Cain. "And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen [sulking]?  If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him."  Genesis4:6, 7  The world, with its desire for dopamine emancipation, desires your participation.  If you are recognized as one who can satisfy its "felt" needs, the world will desire you to rule over it, it will follow you into the abyss.  The Devil can not make you do a thing but he can entice you to become a ruler over your own fleshly desires, not to restrain your fleshly desires but to liberate them, so you can manipulate the environment (ruling over it) so you can receive pleasure from it.  If not externally (in practice, praxis), at least internally (theory, imagination), until the enticer (facilitator, who's job is to make change easy) comes along and convinces you that you "can" do it externally—"Just do it."

"And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed."  Leviticus 25: 10, 11

The world is cheering you on to "do it," for its good pleasure, in theory and in practiceso the world can experience "celebration,"  its sabbath restfrom Godly restraint that is.  The Marxist Erick Fromm defined sabbath as "stopping interference with nature" Erick Fromm The Forgotten Language. In truth the sabbath rest is not for nature, it is for man. "And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath."  Mark 2:28  The only mention of the lands sabbath is when God brings judgment upon man for not obeying him, not obeying his laws and practicing restraint, and man is driven off the land, giving the land a rest from his presence (Leviticus 26:14-33 and 34-43).  The seventh year rest of the land is for the sake of the poor and the beasts Exodus 3:10-12.  True celebration is thanking and praising God for his restraint, for his law which reveals our wickedness, and for his mercy and grace, through Christ Jesus, who redeemed us from his wrath upon us, for breaking his law, and thus not receiving that which we deserve, judgmenteternal damnation, and receiving that which we do not deserve, eternal life through him. "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." 1 Corinthians 2:9

The neurotic, those who filter the scriptures of their spiritual truths through the use of dialectical reasoning (a "scientific" method of thinking through their feelings 1 Timothy 6:20, 21), can only see the world through a "neo-Marxist lens" (sensuous: "Science is only genuine science when it proceeds from sense experience, in the two forms of sense perception and sensuous need, that is, only when it proceeds from Nature." Karl Marx Selected Reading  "Science" when applied to man, materializes him, making him one with the world), and  always move the focus of those they speak to, "their" church, those they "care for," from that which is above to that which is below.

"Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;"  "This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness." Ephesians 4:13, 14, 17-19

The moment a minister takes a pole or survey, an analysis/evaluation of the environment for the sake of unity, he is in control of his life and has rejected God's control over his life.  By focusing upon the environment with his passion, with his heart's desire, as the woman did in the Garden in Eden, he is drawn to it.  By his reasoning, he justify his selfish desire, by practicing his reasoning (praxis), he sins.  He in fact has become ruler over his own life, ruling over the environment, to control it for his own sinful nature, even for the "good" of others (vanity).  In the praxis of negating the judgment of God (God's judgment is his holiness exposing and consuming wickedness), supplanting it with the "love" of God for all things in the creation (God's "love" is in all things, in the creationwholeness), man becomes free from the fear of judgment and is liberated, emancipated from Godly restraint (Read Romans 1-16 to correct this false way of thinking).  In this way he, the minister, can place his followers in an environment which stimulates dopamine (pleasure), and adding God's name to it, call it worshiping God in unity, in Erostolerance, in this way, supplants the patience of God, and a loving God (agape), waiting for us to repent of our sin before him, to be at one with Him, is supplanted with a loving God (Eros), waiting for us to repent of our "sins" to the environment, to be at one with it. In this way liberty from the control of the flesh, by the leading of God, His Word, and his Holy Spirit (liberty in law which is spiritual) is supplanted with liberty of the flesh, through the spirit of unity (group hugliberated from the law, anti-Matthew 5:17).

"When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." Mark 2:17

The "righteous" becomes anxious in the discussion of judgment [a static environment of right and wrong and certain judgment for doing wrong] but finds liberty in the environment of spontaneity (a dynamic environment, an environment of tolerance, of uncertainty), the sinner becomes anxious in the discussion of judgment, but if he repents of his sins (the righteousness of Christ is imputed to him Romans 4:23-5:5, he accepts a static, "It is finished," God, a God of certainty above the environment of uncertainty), he becomes, no longer anxious in the environment of spontaneity, but rather non-influenced (principled, having conviction).  By placing the redeemed and the "righteous" in an environment of spontaneity, you can scientifically "discover" who is for unity (Eros that is) and who is a barrier to unity.  The redeemed will cry out to God for help, turning to his Word (certainty), and be classified (labeled) as being judgmental, divisive, causing disunity (being intolerant) by those in love with the environment of spontaneity.  The one who feels liberated in spontaneity will at first tolerate the inhibitor of unity (tolerance neutralizes differences), and then question his sanity (marginalize him from others, fear of guilt by association), and finally will "panic," i.e. attempt to attack and remove the inhibitor of unity for the sake of environmental unity, for the sake of peace and harmony. When people "glaze" over, while you present truth (certainty), they are panicking, they do not know how to bring you into their world of spontaneity, they are closing down on you, seeing no hope in you "understanding."  What is missing it the world's "scientific" formula is that God has called us to stand, in Him, for he is sufficient, and not chase after spontaneity or be anxious (The Authorized King James Bible uses the word "careful" for the Greek word also meaning anxiousconcerning the things of this world].  "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:6, 7

"Thinking through the process it is dialectically faulty to start with the negative, with anxiety [judgment, death].  The problem is to name the dynamic factor provoking anxiety to emerge [the "intrusive" command (and thus threat of judgment; "you will die") of the father who restrains us from our desire to experience the pleasures the environment naturally stimulates].  Anxiety is a function of spontaneity.  Spontaneity can be defined as the adequate response to a new situation, or the novel response to an old situation.  With decrease of spontaneity anxiety increases.  With entire lose of spontaneity anxiety reaches its maximum, the point of panic."  J. L. Moreno  Who Shall Survive

Liberation of socially unifying dopamine means an environment emancipated from parental authority, an environment of spontaneity. "Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly family, the former must be annihilated, both in theory and in practice." Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4.  This is leadership training.  As it is today, "leaders" are marinated in sensitivity training"If it feels good, just do it."  Herbert Marcuse  Eros and Civilization  This liberation is deceptive and leads to death, as so many in America have "discovered,"  in overdoses, etc. ("Death can be a learning experience" Brown  Life Against Death) and practiced with abortions and euthanasia to mention a few.  But death is more than physical, it is spiritual, and it is eternal for those who reject the mercy and grace of God"through the obedience of Christ." "And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."  Revelation 12:11 "him" being: 'the accuser of the brethren'—'the old Serpent, called the Devil, and Satan' who 'savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men' Revelation 12:9 and Mark 8:33

"Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."  Matthew 13:12

Withdrawal from the pleasures of this life (refusing to be at-one with the world and its lusts) and enduring to the end, are not dopamine moments.  Suffering for your faith is not a dopamine moment. Being tempted is not a dopamine moment, although you can "count it all joy," James 1:2.  Despising the shaming, the mocking, the rejection and persecution of men (because they accuse you of being against them) is not a dopamine moment.  If you do not know the Lord (rather he does not know you)you can not have the Joy and the Peace of the Spirit, Joy which is unspeakable (you can't find words with which others will understand what you are describing, because their words are all tied to the temporal, tied to dopamine), nor will they be able to understand the peace of the Lord, which transcends understanding, "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7—you will not be able to overcome the environment around you, the environment which stimulates your dopamine into action, which encourages you to join with it in the pleasures of this life.  "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."  2 Corinthians  4:18

"For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." "Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost." "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."  Romans 14:17, 15:13, 14:27

Flesh and blood (lovers of dopamine) will not inherit the kingdom of God. "Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption."  1 Corinthians 15:50  Yet while still present in the world, in flesh and blood, we are not to be of it (living for the pleasures it tempts us with):  "But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."  Ephesians 4:20-24  Your soul, if you have been redeemed, if your sins are covered by the blood of the lamb, if the Lord knows you, you will have a new body in heaven, a spiritual body, a body not controlled by the whims and urges of the flesh (tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine which for the moment satisfies your dopamine craving), a body which will not be tied to the whims and urges (changes) of this fallen world, tied to the neurotransmitter dopamine triggered by the quest for an ever changing environment.  In the meantime it is up to us to live holy in a wicked (dopamine driven) world, recognizing that that wickedness still resides within us. As Paul the apostle stated "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?"  His answer "I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."  Romans 7:24, 25  Without God directing our lives, directing us by his Word and his Spirit (along with his chastening), overcoming the world and its lusts is not possible.  It is in the Lord, and him alone, that we can endure to the end, overcoming the prince of the power of the air, the enticer, overcoming this world and the desire of our flesh to be at-one with it, overcoming its lusts, our lust of the eyes ("give me, give me, give me, if only ..."), and our pride of life (our ability to justify ourselves before men), "And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.   Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."  2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Adam and the woman, while in the Garden in Eden, desired the pleasures of this world (set their mind on things below, determining right and wrong based upon how they felt and what they thoughtthrough human perception, dopamine emancipating justification, "the aesthetic dimension," "Social action no less than physical action is steered by perception," Kurt Lewin "The words ‘seem to' are significant; it is the perception which functions in guiding behavior." Carl Rogers  "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 14:12guided by the stimulation of the surrounding environment), Jesus has instead called us to trust in him with all our heart (set our mind on things above, that which is certain, unchanging).  The one mind (set upon the pleasures of this life, desiring the respect of men, which is uncertain, changing) leads to eternal damnation, the other mind ("set upon suffering with Christ") leads to eternal life. Choose today who you will serve.  It will determine where you will spend eternity.

"For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." Galatians 1:10

"For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.  For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him."  2 Corinthians 11:2-4

 It is sad that in the church today there are those (facilitators or change agents, who call themselves ministers) who desire to build the church upon the environmentally stimulating (inspiring) drug dopaminea "purpose driven" church, which uses polls and surveys (feedback loops) to find out what turns people on (their dopamineability, their "felt" needs of the moment, uniting them upon a "feeling" of oneness), so that all participants can find social pleasure in "doing the work of God," a church hooked on the drug of this world, lovers of pleasure (albeit done in the name of Jesus), a church seeking a non offensive, readily adaptable to change, user friendly, dopamine driven (feel good) Jesus. By re-structuring the church upon a dopamine liberating Jesus (temporal, seeking and finding approval in the eyes of the world), who conflicts with the Christ of obedience (spiritual, rejecting the way of the world and rejected of the world) is following the pathway of Hegel and the dialectical process.

Hegel wrote:  "It may be said that Philosophy [thinking about our way of thinking or other peoples way of thinking] first commences when ... a gulf has arisen between inward strivings and external reality, and the old forms of Religion, &c., are no longer satisfying [satisfying to the flesh's desire for change]; when Mind manifests indifference to its living existence or rests unsatisfied therein, and moral life becomes dissolved." "Philosophy is a free and not self-seeking activity, … This activity contains the essential element of a negation, because to produce is also to destroy; … as Mind passes on from its natural form, it also proceeds from its exact code of morals and the robustness of life to reflection and conception. The result of this is that it lays hold of and troubles this real, substantial kind of existence, this morality and faith, and thus the period of destruction commences [destruction of ones faith begins that is]."  Hegel's Lectures on the History of Philosophy Introduction B. Relation of Philosophy to Other Departments of Knowledge.  To more clearly understand where Hegel was coming from, he wrote: "Man knows about God only in so far as God knows about himself in man;" "What truly is always true is that all is in flux, the truth-seeker ought properly to address himself to the study of this life process of truth seeking itself." G. W. F. Hegel  In other words the one seeking truth is not to seek Christ, who is truth, but rather to seek "a life process of truth seeking itself." Hegel revealed his hermitic, Gnostic, cabalist religious view in this way: "Spirit, in so far as it is the Spirit of God, is not a spirit beyond the stars, beyond the world. On the contrary, God is present, omnipresent, and exists as spirit in all spirits." (Hegel Philosophy of Religion)

During the 40's and 50's the church took the youth out of the service and put them in the back room hoping to keep them in the church via an environment which stimulated dopamine liberation.  There was no other reason. Thus the next generations demanded an environment which stimulated dopamine liberation in the Church. Ministers soon learned this was the only means to "growing" the church. These are ministers today who trust in their tools of evaluation, tools they can use to create and sustain an environment of hopefulnessbuilding upon a feeling of hopecreating a church from "feasibility studies,"  with pre-determined, observable outcomes (vision statements, mission statements, and goals), putting their trust in projections with tangible hypothesis i.e. in quest of measurable results of "continuous improvement" and "sustainable development."  With speeches of "unity," and "synergy" they think to themselves "What can I get out these relationships for me?" With speeches of "love" and "sacrifice," they build their kingdom of God upon "interpersonal relationships." 

"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." 2 Timothy 3:12

Suffering persecution is not a dopamine moment unless you take delight in suffering itself—masochist; some religious people seek pleasure from persecution, if you do it as a group project it makes it a lot easier.  Since materialists, humanists, see only temporal things as real (spiritual things as phenomena), all who are willing to suffer persecution for Christ are considered masochists. "In Escape from Freedom, Fromm offered the sado-masochistic character as the core of the authoritarian personality."  Martin Jay The Dialectical Imagination  ". . . Definition of religious experience as experience of absolute dependence is the definition of the masochistic experience in general." Erich Fromm, Escape from Freedom  According to dialecticalSatanicreasoning, man's freedom is to be actualized through the praxis of restoring his identity and purpose within the creation (harmony), and anything which seeks to block that harmony is sado-masochistic in nature, i.e. God. "In the process of history man gives birth to himself.  He becomes what he potentially is, and he attains what the serpent—the symbol of wisdom and rebellion—promised, and what the patriarchal, jealous God of Adam did not wish:  that man would become like God himself."  Erick Fromm  You Shall Be As Gods p. 123

"His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant." Isaiah 56:10-12

These are ministers who serve another Christ, a false Christ, a Christ of man's making, a Christ "driving"  his sheep i.e. manipulating his sheep, by manipulating the environment.  Through the utilization of "positive and negative force field analysis," the are able to create the "right" or healthy (synergistic) environment of consensusthe uniting of all participants in a common dopamine discharge, a collective sensuous experience of onenesschanging the environment which changes us, which changes the environment, which changes us, which changes the environment, which changes us...... ad infinitum. Creating an ever changing environment whereby all are freely chasing the dopamine rush, that is, until the day of judgment comes upon their dialectical neurosis, their love of pleasure, their love of the creation.  These are ministers simply in love with the power they have in creating environments which release pleasure—possessed with the liberation of dopamine they experience from the respect of men they receive since they know how to create environmental conditions which liberate dopamine for all mankind, "in Jesus name."  For all who desire to participate in their theology of universal dopamine liberation and their belief in a universal Christ seeking harmony with the world through collective dopamine emancipation "Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world:"  John 18:36.

"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."  2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12

It is for God's good pleasure (spiritual) and not ours (temporal) for which we were created.  The temporal can not comprehend this.  Children of the world cannot comprehend the light of the Glory of God, as the darkness cannot comprehend the light. When Christians "rediscover" their "child within," through the "artcraft" of psychology, sociology, anthropology, etc, they return to the darkness of the fallen world, guided again by their carnal feelings and their carnal thoughts.

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." Revelation 4:11

These ministers, basing their ministries upon the creation of dopamine stimulating environments, will be so successful, in the eyes of men, that no one will dare speak against them (expose their heresy), without suffering persecution or death.  Who can argue against "success," particularly if it can be experienced by all participating in it. But the true Savior and Lord, Christ Jesus, will have the last word concerning these men (and usurping women, appropriating an office which is not theirs) who call themselves ministers of God.  "And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matthew 7:23 After all is said and done, it is what God commands, not our thinking about how we feel or what we think about him (even in Jesus name) that matters (thinking about our thinking about Jesus is not the same as setting our mind upon him).  Read Revelation, Chapter 18 for a full picture of God's judgment upon those who worship the effects of dopamine, the "passion juice" of the flesh.  "Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and him only shalt thou serve." Matthew 4:10b  "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."  John 4:23, 24

Revelation 13:11-18

"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

Revelation 14:9-11

"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."

Revelation 15:2-4

"And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest."
