12. Psychology

That which today is called psychology is not a science.

Modern psychology has been defined as the study of human behavior. This must be taken to mean that it is the study of impressions from objects and forces of nature that are made through the senses upon the human mechanism, and the response of the human mechanism to the impressions thus received.

But that is not psychology.

There cannot be any kind of psychology as a science, until there is some kind of understanding of what the psyche is, and what the mind is;
and a realization of the processes of thought, of how the mind functions, and of the causes and results of its functioning.

Psychologists admit that they do not know what these things are.

Before psychology can become a true science there must be some understanding of the interrelated functioning of the three minds of the doer.

This is the foundation upon which can be developed a true science of the mind and of human relations.

In these pages it is shown how the feeling and desire are directly related to the sexes, explaining that in a man the feeling aspect is dominated by desire and that in a woman the desire aspect is dominated by feeling; and that in every human the functioning of the now dominant body-mind is more nearly attuned to the one or the other of these, according to the sex of the body in which they are functioning; and it is shown, further, that all human relations are dependent upon the functioning of the body-minds of men and women in their relations to each other.

Modern psychologists prefer not to use the word soul, although it has been in general use in the English language for many centuries.

The reason for this is that all that has been said concerning what the soul is or what it does, or the purpose that it serves, has been too unclear, too doubtful and confusing, to warrant the scientific study of the subject.

Instead, the psychologists have therefore taken as the subject of their study the human animal machine and its behavior.
