IX. How?  

        How does healthy spiritization lead to happiness? I devote energy, space and time to the task of applying truth and knowledge of theory based on scientifically reproducible discovery to the problem of achieving and maintaining health.   Health and happiness are synergistic. Health helps produce happiness.  Happiness helps produce health.

How does agnostic spiritization lead to happiness?  Most people I know do not claim to be able to use their senses and perceptions to gather objective evidence that leads by valid logical deductive inference to a scientifically reproducible conclusion that proves or disproves the existence or non-existence of a divine eternal essence of the existence of one totality. Because our bodies are finite and fragile, our minds may be simply too limited to comprehend the existence of one totality, analyze all of the infinite possibilities and provide a definitive answer to the grand enigmatic questions of identity that follow from pondering the existence of discovery and mystery. Agnosticism acknowledges this fact. It validates and reassures us that the existence of one totality is both a discovery and a mystery. Agnosticism frees me to imagine myth and fantasy based on the existence of discovery and mystery that produces the most optimistic thoughts, beliefs and expectations about the existence of one totality. Devotion of my energy, space and time to the most optimistic thoughts, beliefs and expectations about the existence of one totality produces in my mind powerful emotional responses of joy, faith and love. These powerful emotional forces of joy, faith and love balance the powerful emotional responses of sorrow, fear, and anger that follow from the discovery of the impending disease and death of my seed body. Balance produces happiness. I think, believe, and expect that a most optimistic framework of myth and fantasy about the existence of one totality is true in order to be able to enjoy the emotional and potential physiological benefits of doing so. However, I do not know that this framework is true. I am able to believe without objective evidence that leads by valid logical deductive inference to one definite conclusion because the presence of evidence in the form of the universe leads by valid logical inductive inference to the conclusion that a most optimistic framework of myth and fantasy about the existence of one totality may be true; and because believing a most optimistic myth about the existence of one totality is true enables me to produce in my mind emotional balance that is conducive to happiness and health in my life. 

How does positivistic spiritization lead to happiness? Positive thinking dictates that I achieve verification of the truth by using my senses and perceptions to gather objective evidence that leads by valid logical deductive inference to the scientifically reproducible conclusion that a given idea about some part of the existence of one totality is true.  I make a clear distinction between truth based on scientifically reproducible discovery; myth based on the existence of discovery and mystery; and lies based on ignorance and denial. I make a clear distinction between truth, lies, and myth. I reject lies in favor of truth. Upon a foundation of truth and knowledge of theory based on scientifically reproducible discovery, I build a most optimistic framework of myth and fantasy about the existence of one totality based on the existence of discovery and mystery and my house of ideology forms. This then is how healthy, agnostic, positivistic, nationalistic, spiritization is positivistic; it leads to a model of the existence of totality that is a positive possibility. My model of the existence of one totality should contain no lies. My model of the existence of one totality should not contradict truth. My model of the existence of one totality should contain scientific ideas that are testable, provable and disprovable by scientific method and mythological ideas that are not testable, provable or disprovable by scientific method.

How does nationalistic spiritization lead to happiness? Being happy is an interest, need and aspiration of most people I know.  Most people want to be healthy, to feel good about themselves, to believe they can exert some control over their lives, and to expect good things in the future. Most people need and aspire to be likeable, to care about and be cared for by others, create, survive, perfect, and revive in a peaceful and nurturing environment. I believe that love of healthy, agnostic, positivistic, nationalistic, spiritization can provide the emotional balance required to best satisfy my need and aspiration to achieve and maintain health and happiness. In as much as I am satisfied so a nation of people that are very similar to me may be satisfied. Love of healthy, agnostic, positivistic, nationalistic, spiritization is nationalistic in as much as satisfying the need and aspiration of a nation to achieve and maintain health and happiness is nationalistic.
