     note IDEA and SELF ARE INTERTWINED
     med> A FULLY FUNCTIONING MATURE  HUMAN BEING
          GENERATES IDIOSYNCRATIC IDEAS
     he who lacks IDEAS is an IDIOT
     consider VISION vs VISTA            see>  REAL

     note " I SEE " and REALITY are NOT IDENTICAL
     ply> | ONLY GOD HAS PERFECT VISION but
            VISIONARIES may TRANSCEND others |
     hx> PLATO PROPOSED A FUNDAMENTAL AND RELIGIOUS VIEW
         suggesting that an " IDEA "  is an " ARCHETYPE "
     TO EMPHASIZE THAT IDEAS ARE NOT DERIVED FROM REALITY
     AND THAT REALITY IS THE FULFILLMENT OF A DIVINE IDEA
     note how in such a perspective IDEA IS PERFECT but
     its material manifestation is PARTIAL and IMPERFECT
     {is GOD or is the UNIVERSE IMPERFECT?}
     for example THE IDEA "CAT" MAY BE PERFECT BUT NO
     SPECIFIC "REAL" CAT CAN EMBODY THE SCOPE OF ALL CATS
     note how IDEA in RELIGION may be represented as
     GOD or LOGOS and considered to be the source of
     THE GENESIS OF UNIVERSE  PERCEPTIBLE OR NOT
     note how NO TWO OBJECTS CAN REPRESENT AN
              IDENTICAL IDEA BECAUSE NO TWO OBJECTS CAN
     OCCUPY THE SAME SPACE AT THE SAME TIME
     note how IDEOLOGY PROPOSES TRUTHS THAT ARE BEYOND
              PROOF BY SCIENCE
     HUMANS NURTURE IDEAS AND GENERATE IDEOLOGIES
     WHICH INEVITABLY ARE IMPERFECT
     RELATIVE TRUTH IS UNSETTLING WHICH MAY CALL FOR
     FAITH FORMALIZED AS IDEOLOGY  DOGMA  PARTY  or
     RELIGION   all can be used as an escape to
     DENY UNDESIRED REALITY or SCIENCE
     note "HISTORIC REVISIONISM" etc   see>  HISTORY
           a euphemism for
     ALTERING HISTORY TO FIT IDEOLOGICAL IDEAS
     note IDEALISM ASPIRES TO
          AN IMPOSSIBLE " PERFECT "
     in contrast to SCIENCE WHICH ONLY OFFERS
                    PARTIAL DISCOVERIES or
     LESSER LEVELS OF CERTAINTY AND
     NEVER CAN ELIMINATE POCKETS OF UNCERTAINTY
     note SINCE SCIENCE CAN NOT OFFER AN ABSOLUTE TRUTH
          THE CONFLICT BETWEEN RELIGION DOGMA or
     DOGMATIC POLITICS AND SCIENCE IS INEVITABLE BECAUSE
     EVEN A MINUSCULE CHALLENGE TO A DOGMA     sug> USSR
     MAY COLLAPSE AN ENTIRE IDEOLOGY
     notably THOSE WHO MAY UNDERMINE
             A FAITH IN A DOGMA ARE UNWELCOMED
     REGARDLESS OF VALID SCIENTIFIC ARGUMENTS
     INDIVIDUALS WHO CHALLENGE DOGMATIC "IDEAS"
     ARE MOST OFTEN BRANDED AS "ENEMIES"
     or in DOGMATIC TERMS "DEMONIZED"
     note "CHURCH"  or the "PARTY"
          if in power or if having the
     STATUS of a "STATE" will often

     sc>  note how GENETICS and SOCIOLOGY were seen as
          a THREAT TO THE SOVIET UNION because the
     factual tenets were inconsistent with
     BOLSHEVIK DOGMAS HOLDING THAT COMMUNISM CAN
     REMEDY SOCIAL ILLS REGARDLESS OF NATURE or GENES
     note that contrariwise TO DOGMATISM
          SCIENCE MUST ACCEPT UNCERTAINTY
     SCIENCE CAN REJECT THE FALSE BUT IT CAN NOT REACH
     AN ABSOLUTE TRUTH
     RELIGIONS ARE THEOCENTRIC         sug> DOGMA
     SCIENCE IS HOMOCENTRIC            sug> HUMANISM
     however under COMMUNISM HOMOCENTRIC SCIENCE WAS
     REPLACED BY A HOMOCENTRIC RELIGION  see>   MARX
     see> AIDOS  EIDOS  SCIENCE  MYTHOLOGY  RELIGION
     hx> SINCE THE RENAISSANCE  HOMOCENTRIC VISTAS
         LED TO THE STUDY OF IDEAS AND IDEALS AS
     MEASURES OF HUMANITY AND LED TO IDEOLOGIES BASED ON
     FREEDOM  DIGNITY  EQUALITY  FRATERNITY  LIBERTY etc
     SCIENCE INTRODUCED THE TESTING OF     sug> ANALYSIS

     ONCE SUFFICIENT CERTAINTY EMERGED     sug> PROOF
     A SCIENTIFIC THEORY BASED ON FACTS COULD EMERGE
     THUS AN IDEA COULD BE INCORPORATED FROM PHILOSOPHY
     INTO THE BODY OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE as if
     SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTS IDEAS REALIZED
     WITH REASONABLE CERTAINTY or perhaps
     A MYTH MADE VISIBLE AND COMPREHENSIBLE
     as if THE ROLE OF SCIENCE IS TO FULFILL THEORIES
     THE FORMER REPRESENTS TECHNOLOGY AND THE LATER CULTURE
     A DISPROPORTION IN EITHER DIRECTION
     FUELS RELIGION AND POLITICS AND MAY BE
     AN OMEN OF SOCIAL STRESS AND DECAY    sug> USSR

     hx> MANY MODERN SOCIAL or POLITICAL IDEALISMS
         HAVE ROOTS IN MODIFIED or VULGARIZED NOTIONS
     EXPRESSED IN GERMAN ROMANTIC PHILOSOPHY WHERE
     THE NATURE OF THE FREEDOM OF MAN IN RELATION TO THE
     NATURE OF GOD IS EXPLORED AND WHICH LED TO
     PROPOSITIONS THAT IN ESSENCE  "MAN IS GOD"  as per
     KANT  HEGEL  ENGELS  see> MARX
     such ideas were further VULGARIZED AND POLITICIZED
     not only by extremists like LENIN  HITLER  MAO ZEDONG
     but also by many "DEMOCRATIC" MODERATE LEADERS

     lit+ K MARX [#] is instructive in this respect

     "TRADITIONAL" THERAPIES HAVE BEEN LEGITIMIZED AS
     "MEDICAL" SERVICES BECAUSE OF POPULAR DEMANDS
     WITHOUT EVIDENCE THAT SUCH ARE EFFICACIOUS or SAFE
     in effect the implications are that
     SCIENTIFIC THERAPIES MUST BE REGULATED BY LAW
     WHILE "FAITH" or CREED HEALING IS
     TO REMAIN ABOVE THE LAW
     one factor in such trends is COMMERCIAL GREED
     as manifest by an explosive growth of "HEALTH" stores
     a phenomenon PROMOTED or PROPAGATED by the GENERATION

     THE CONCEPT OF IDEONOMY WAS APPARENTLY COINED BY
     Patrick GUNCKEL [#] who proposes that an IDEONOMIST
     IS A SCHOLAR SEEKING KNOWLEDGE IN HUMAN LANGUAGE
