In 1928 at Neidenburg in the East at the local elections Nazis got only 2.3% of the votes cast. After the Great Depression the Nazis did not have a party office there. Neither did Hitler visit the place to drum up support. By 1933 the Nazi party got 53 % in Germany( actual figures I cannot vouch for.I am quoting this secondhand-b).
Nazi Manifesto was still the same as at the time of its founding and in 1933. People in Germany were dejected with the economy and disruptive Communists were for rejecting democracy. In such a flux energy of each German was in ferment and was ready for taking.
Energy of individual is in full flow when he sells himself to an idea. Look at the post-war Germany what with the hyperinflation and political chaos man on the street was waiting for one father figure who would guide him out of the woods. Defeated and humiliated German had already sold to fall in and Adolf Hitler seized the chance. Having got so much energy from so many Hitler like the Piedpiper of Hamelin led Germany to ruin.
Integration principle shows the pernicious influence of Nazi cult surviving even though National Socialism as a political movement was finished. Its evil has worked its way into the pores of the national life. Neo-Nazis for example.
Here are two principles at work:
How come the first Woodstock festival was a roaring success while the second music-fest was a colorless affair?The natural outgrowth of social changes of 69 was energy that each participant brought there. It is like a flash flood that made a path upturning the whole social landscape. The youth had laid claim to have a say in their destiny that let old fogeys who represented the Establishment give in. Eastern philosophy, music and a new moral order that experimented with multiple lifestyle choices connected to give the social changes its structure. It was natural while the music fest at the Woodstock 30 years later was organized. The first demonstrated Integration principle in creating something new from many influences already in flow.
A similar phenomena we see in the founding of the Church. When John the baptist began his ministry people were agog with expectation. Coming of Messiah had gripped all. Similarly there was a great gathering on the day of Pentecost in Jerusalem and all those who were there because their master had promised them an outpouring witnessed something extraordinary. Holy Spirit came down in many tongues.
A Church that is organized is like a man with an idea seeking counsel from PR man. He simply kills the spontaneous fire in his soul to get so many on the bandwagon! It happened to Christianity where the Church of Rome became a power unto itself. The originality of the teachings of Jesus became diluted with passage of time. Within the first fifty years the Early Church was busy wrestling with the question of how best it could reconcile the gentile and Jewish converts into its hold.
Integration principle must trade off with Inversion principle.

Brahma’s Elephant ©
Brahma once went visiting. His mind was in a whirl and not realizing he stopped over at some place. Absent mindedly he tied his elephant to a tree. But when he thought he would continue his journey he could not find what tree it was. He called for Shiva. The god of destruction produced a seed and said that it was from the tree to which the animal was tied. Brahma was incredulous but Shiva assured that he would soon find it. Shiva held the seed out. In a trice it was swallowed up.
Something of that seed disagreed with the animal and he trumpeted with an ear splitting din. “ Oh chaos has broken loose!” cried the Creator-God as the animal broke wind. A Big Bang it was.
The seed came out in cataclysmic force. In its wake came energy making every form visible! Lo and behold there stood his elephant! The animal was still chained to the tree and there were many universes growing out of the tree.
What seemed chaos was Brahma’s idle thought. It requires energy for translating thoughts into action. A form signifies certain transaction in levels of energy.

Astronomer Edwin Hubble demonstrated that all galaxies and distant astronomical objects were moving away from us, as predicted by a universal expansion. Using the redshift of their electromagnetic spectra to determine the distance and speed of remote objects in space, he showed that all objects are moving away from us, and that their speed is proportional to their distance.
Similarly how far each of us is far from the Truth absolute can be understood by scanning *Energy Profile of each. Like the red or blueshift our actions hold certain permanence in the Cosmos.
Permanence in this universe? One may ask. It all depends what you think of your soul. If my soul or essential Self is permanent my Energy profile also matters.
Nucleons have same mass as fermions and are two different states of the same particle. In similar fashion whether as spiritual being or as physical being each of us shall go on about the plane of soul till we are perfect. Pure energy as light in the Cosmos.
* I have already covered the topic of Energy profile. Any shift of truth of my actions from the absolute is set in space-time coordinates.

Energy is neither created nor destroyed. Recalling Einstein’s famous formula a small mass of matter when converted releases tremendous amount of energy. All that energy mankind has ever possessed or shall, owe to what was released at the time of the Big Bang.
Evolution in a manner of speaking is a transaction of so many species with energy as bills of exchange.
Like the gold standard to which currency of nations are tied, species competes one another to get the best deal.
Naturalists reckon land animals under the existing conditions, could hold a weight of 100 tons but no animal has come anywhere near that mark. ‘Small is beautiful’ is the message the size of animals seems to indicate. Trimmer they are, less energy they shall need to expend we might say.
Since every life form utilizes energy one might say mankind is connected or bonded to serve one another. Each of us is a consumer and how much we spent or gained are matters that shall be resolved when Reconciliation of Energy takes place. Here is one proof of our footprint that is set in Time and Space. Like the footprints of dinosaurs who are extinct, still arouse intense interest among the fossil hunters and scientists alike.
