...Kevin, that's not it... DT explains how prejudice toward that which is
merely familiar arises within our nervous systems... so if one "rejects" DT's
position without, first, having come to understand DT's position, in
clinging to that with which they are familiar as the basis of "rejecting"
that with which they are unfamiliar, one is behaving in a way that
substantiates the theory they are "rejecting"...
...as far as I know, DT is the only theory that has this "peculiar"
quality... ken collins
People hate because they fear, and they fear because
they do not understand, and they do not understand
because hating is less work than understanding.
