is lived along a continuum based upon the psycho/spiritual, biological
imperative concerning the conservation of energy. Just as our bodies
are marvels of efficiency, so too, are our psychology. Unfortunately,
for every good, there must also be at least one compensatory "bad".
of the Real Objective reason for denial, delusion, etc. is also
based upon this Law of Conservation of psychic energies. For example,
in imagination, one encounters no second force. The mind imagines
all sorts of illusional/delusional realities, which are pleasing
to one's vanity.
though all people deflect and rationalize their own behavior for
many reasons, one of the reasons for rationalization (as a form)
is that it both saves time, as well as energy. To assume oneself
as always being 'in the right' expends less psychic energy than
to turn around and face the consequences of one's behavior.
