You cannot apply any theory (other than the one these lessons are based on… the theory that selective validation creates conviction of patterns… and based on those patterns, people’s behavior change, which arise from motivation to minimize individual guilt/maximize individual happiness) successfully to every phenomenon/scenario without hitting roadblocks/errors.
And that’s fine. That is the reality.
Reality is full of double standards. No outside theory can be successfully applied without hitting major discrepancies/flaws.
Life, in general, makes no sense.
