Microvita and the Euro-Zone Crisis
by Dr. Hans-Joachim Rudolph (MD), Microvita Research e.V.In social life,
Devayonis (strengthening the interest inaccumulating money, originally for a good purpose) and
Pretayonis (bringing about that everything is considered as anobject of enjoyment) are of special interest (1), insofar as they referto the antinomy of puritanism versus hedonism, particularly in thesense that puritanism strongly influences the development of capitalism (Max Weber), whereas hedonism becomes common inaffluent societies, arising, among other reasons, from such workethics.Corresponding to my previous publications (2,3), the antinomy of
puritanism and hedonism can be understood as an oxymoron, whichis transformed into its polarities by the action of the appertainingneutral, positive or negative microvita respectively. Societies withan excess of interest in collecting and accumulating money willconsume more
Devayonis, whereas societies mostlyconsidering everything as an object of enjoyment will consumemore
Pretayonis. The appertaining neutral microvitum willproduce both of them in equal amounts, resulting in a socialbalance between puritanism and hedonism.Such balanced states are, however, necessarily unstable, as both,puritanism and hedonism, do have strong tendencies to go waybeyond themselves: The accumulated wealth wants to be spent forthe worship of idols* (Prakrtiliina), for objects of physical or mentalbeauty (Kinnara or Vidya’dhara) or for music (GandharvaDevayonis). And the tendency to consider everything as an objectof enjoyment brings about restlessness (Madhyakapa’la), atendency towards suicide (Kabandha) or towards involving others inmental conflicts or to use the intellect for their suppression(Durmukha or Brahmadaetya Pretayonis). Therefore, such balancedstates can exist only temporarily.Moreover, extremely unbalanced states are unfolding these days infront of our eyes: The Euro-zone is a good example; and thequestion at hand is, how to navigate in such complex fields, or infact, how to influence the related psychic forces?
