VII. Ideas, Ideology and Ideologue

 

Ideas are thoughts, beliefs and expectations about existence. An ideology is a body of ideas that reflects the needs and aspirations of an individual, group, class or culture. Ideologues are individuals who devote great amounts of energy, space, and time in life to the task of becoming an authority on an ideology. My ideology reflects my need and aspiration to achieve and maintain health and happiness.

Like health psychologists, I intend to modify my thoughts, beliefs and expectations about existence to reduce psychological stress in an effort to improve health. Unlike some health psychologists, I intend to expand the scope of my efforts; to modify thoughts, beliefs, and expectations about existence; beyond the domain of truth and knowledge of theory based on scientifically reproducible discovery; into what is possible within the realm of myth and fantasy based on mystery. From what is possible, I intend to imagine a framework of myth and fantasy based on mystery that enables me; to produce the most optimistic thoughts, beliefs and expectations about the existence of one totality. I think, believe and expect that from the production of the most optimistic thoughts, beliefs and expectations about the existence of one totality; will follow powerful emotional responses of joy, faith and love. With these powerful emotional responses of joy, faith and love, I intend to balance powerful emotional responses of sorrow, fear, and anger that follow from the scientifically reproducible discovery of the impending disease and death of my seed body. Emotional responses can produce physiological responses that adversely or beneficially affect our health. Maybe powerful emotional responses of joy, faith and love will help produce beneficial physiological responses of health.
