HARMONIZING

There is much confusion about the concept of harmonization. It
has been seen as central to functional psychology for a long time.
However, its root causes, and the means of sustaining it have
been (for some) by turns difficult or obscure.

Harmonizing, which is the process of reaching harmonization,
comes about through a practical focus on positive thinking, both
to avoid disaster, and to promote valuable mentalistic vibes.

Harmonization becomes more difficult for those who are
brain-damaged, or for some other reason cannot find genuine
mental stimulation. The ability to stimulate the mind is what
separates so-called 'ordinary' people from those who are
considered abnormal. Further traits such as ethical conduct,
professional qualifications, fatherliness or motherliness, etc.
seperate further the functional types, but for dysfunctional people
some or all of these additional traits may often be impossible.

Harmonization becomes the exclusive bridge between functional
and dysfunctional people, and it is by no means an easy bridge to
cross, as the positive elements of harmony are held almost
exclusively by functional people.

A key element to understand is that harmonizing involves
ignoring and eliminating harmful vibes, which can be detected and
criticized by those with intellectual sensitivity. The truly
functional people tend to be high intellectual performers, or at
least high social performers.

On the converse, ignoring harmful vibes has been critiqued as a
'following-the-herd' mentality, but so long as mental stimulation  
is a desirable end in itself, some degree of conformism is largely
unavoidable, and can even inspire envy.

Intellectual sensitivity and higher cognitive traits become the
defense against invasive negative behaviors that could
compromise the culture and chemistry of such close-knit
networks of reward and response.

The reward, some say it is a lofty one, is to be mentally
constructive by providing a culture for the higher mental
ambitions of groups of individuals. Because groups tend to have
higher social functions than individuals, there is an advantage in
giving preference to group function over individual function.

On the other hand, ignoring individual function may prohibit
creativity if the focus is no longer on genuine individual
accomplishment. Thus, the model must be accepted on a chemical
level of mutual exchange before harmonization works for
individuals.

It is then likely that the system of harmonization is keyed into
patterns that only emerge with sexual or narcotic stimulus.

So, while harmony works for society, it is superficial in the sense
that it has no one individual's interest in mind independent of the
overall social function.

On the other hand, it is geared towards the immediate chemical
achievement of every individual in the context of any existing
context of limitations.

Harmony thus involves such things as simple awareness, the
desire for stimulus, and social priorities which are assumed to be
the honest traits of humans as individuals when they seek to fulfill
non-negativist priorities.
