VIII. Love H.A.P.N.S. and love happens!

 

 The phrase 'Love H.A.P.N.S.' is formed from a combination of the word Love and the acronym H.A.P.N.S.. 

I give the phrase 'Love H.A.P.N.S.' two meanings. One meaning of the phrase ‘Love H.A.P.N.S.' is same as the meaning of the phrase 'love happens'. The other meaning of the phrase ‘Love H.A.P.N.S.’ is love Healthy, Agnostic, Positivistic, Nationalistic, Spiritization. In short, love of Healthy, Agnostic, Positivistic, Nationalistic, Spiritization describes my method of modifying my thoughts, beliefs, and expectations about the existence of one totality to reduce psychological stress in an effort to improve health. 

        Before proceeding, any further let us review some of our basic definitions: The words healthy, agnostic, positivistic and nationalistic are adjectives. I define an adjective as any of a class of words used to modify a noun by limiting, qualifying, or specifying. The word spiritization is a noun. I define a noun as a word that is used to name a person, place, or thing. 

      I define the noun spiritization as the act or process of imparting a spiritual nature, or treating as having a spiritual sense or meaning. I impart a spiritual nature to my thoughts, beliefs, and expectations about the existence of one totality in a manner that is healthy, agnostic, positivistic, and nationalistic. 

      I define healthy spiritization as spiritization that is conducive to health. I characterize health as biological homeostasis. Biological homeostasis is a balance of characteristic and essential life processes, activities and functions conducive to the well being of an organism.  A life form demonstrates health as an ability to win in the conflict of predator and prey in a body-consuming biosphere, on a crusted magma globe, with a sun and a moon reproducible in a galaxy of stars and a universe of galaxies in an infinite seed of large universes of the correct kind to support living infernal fractal entities that are collectively the infinite body of a cosmic life form. 

     I define agnostic spiritization as a spiritization limited by  an inability to know about the existence or non-existence of a deity or deities. Agnostic spiritization is characterized by a belief that our finite human capacities to sense, perceive, intuit, judge, understand, apply, analyze, create, and evaluate may be insufficient to prove or disprove the existence of a deity or deities. 

     I define positivistic spiritization as spiritization that follows from a system of philosophy known as positivism. Positivism offers that verification by use of my senses and perceptions is the only valid way of making a distinction between ideas and concepts that I am to categorize as truth and knowledge of theory; ideas and concepts that I am to categorize as lies and ignorance; and ideas and concepts that I am to categorize as myth and fantasy.  If I can use my senses and perceptions to gather objective evidence that leads by logical valid deductive inference to the conclusion that an idea about some part of the existence of one totality is true then I have achieved verification of a truth. As a result of verification, I classify this idea as a truth.  If I can not use my senses and perceptions to gather objective evidence that leads by logical valid inductive inference to the conclusion that an idea about some part of the existence of one totality is true or false, then I have not achieved verification of a truth and I have not achieved verification of a lie. As a result of a lack of verification, I classify this idea as a myth. If I can use this myth to make predictions about the future condition of some part of the existence of one totality that scientists could then check against results from some experiment or observation, then this myth is reclassified as a scientific theory. If I can use my senses and perceptions to gather objective evidence that leads by logical valid deductive inference to the conclusion that an idea about some part of the existence of one totality is false then I have achieved verification of a lie. As a result of verification, I classify this idea as a lie. From this I can conclude: Truths and lies are verified by use of deductive reasoning; myths are derived the existence of discovery and mystery by use of inductive reasoning; and if I can use a myth to make predictions about the future condition of some part of the existence of one totality that scientists could then check against results from some experiment or observation, then this myth is reclassified as a scientific theory.  Based on this distinction, I make decisions and solve problems that pertain to achieving and maintaining health by application of an understanding of truth and knowledge of theory based on scientifically reproducible discovery. Based on this distinction, I make decisions and solve problems that pertain to achieving and maintaining happiness by application of a belief in a most optimistic framework of myth and fantasy about the existence of one totality. I also refer to this as 'positive thinking'.

      I define Nationalistic spiritization as spiritization that follows from a devotion to the interests, needs, aspirations, and or culture of a particular nation of people.

       I use the word ‘spiritize’ rather than the word ‘spiritualize’. I view application of the word ‘spiritualize’ to the above-described process as having the potential to lead my readers to the erroneous impression that I am dealing in 'spiritual' 'lies'. For similar reasons, I use words such as ‘spiritization’, ‘spiritizing’, and ‘spiritizer’ rather than ‘spiritualization’, ‘spiritualizing’, and ‘spiritualizer’.

       The word ‘spiritize’ is a type of pun called a paragram.  Paragram, from the Greek “to alter a word”, is a form of word play, occasionally employed by professional lyricists, that takes a familiar word, such as ‘spiritualize’, and modifies it for purposeful effect. A paragram, because it brings to mind the original word as it simultaneously alters it, creates an ironic disparity between what was and what is.
