Groups and Forms with Other People

[447] Life in groups requires special rules of living together. Group pressure should be avoided, rivalries be eliminated. There can be as in the marriage unbridgeable differences, which can lead to the dissolution of the group as such. Here the best is to be made from the respective situation. It does not make sense wanting to hold a group together with all one's might if this is not possible.

[448] If the goals of a group - as e.g. in a crowd or a gang - are doubtful, then a membership should be abandoned or even prevented. The church or groups of the religion of love offer a worthwhile alternative. A clearing up discussion - in particular by a specialist - can be indicated here. Damaging dependences are to be pointed out and be transformed into desirable liberties.

[451] We should also work on our forms with other people. Here the culture is to be considered, which surrounds us. Politeness and accurateness are gladly seen in all cultures. We should protect ourselves here, however, against (fashionable) exaggerations. In addition, it should be place for innovations, if something is outdated. Heart formation can be helpful with forms, if we are uncertain and do not know how we are to behave.

[796] No knowledge is presuppositionlessly. Any notion establishes a being. Only the reference to the reality decides whether something is real. The reality may yet be disguised. Cognition presupposes the plausibility of the references. The delusion can disguise the reality. Each test is done because of the presuppositions. A thorough scrutinising can protect from wrong presuppositions.

[797] Many trifles are often praised as a great cognition, perhaps because they are unusual and, at first sight, not to grasp. One beware also of suspicious monster words, which rather obscure, what it is, than to contribute to real cognition. Phrase like humour are usually lack of thoughtfulness: True and deep cognition is mostly serious and loves the right word.
