On the subject of wishful thinking which the Governing Body seem to be heavily immersed in and very unconscious of not to mention is a very poor way to run a corporation as the outcome through out history seems to bare out. I'm thinking that the Governing Body are entering the "nightmare stage" or have already entered it. Now because they have used a delusion caused by wishful thinking(bible interpetation) they are frustrated, they are trying ever harder to stay in this delusion using all sorts of mind tricks, plays on words and meanings, cherry picking facts, confirmation bias, and desparate magical thinking. This puts them in a very tuff position to make any real good decisions with their mind all muddled up, just look at the crap they are publishing for evidence of this.
I'm thinking they are going to make lots of very serious errors in the future that will be very harmful to the ecconomic future of the corporation, as they over compensate and over react to the pressures of keeping the delusion alive in their mind.
“the fantasy cycle” ... a pattern that recurs in personal lives, in politics, in history – and in storytelling. When we embark on a course of action which is unconsciously driven by wishful thinking, all may seem to go well for a time, in what may be called the “dream stage”. But because this make-believe can never be reconciled with reality, it leads to a “frustration stage” as things start to go wrong, prompting a more determined effort to keep the fantasy in being. As reality presses in, it leads to a “nightmare stage” as everything goes wrong, culminating in an “explosion into reality”, when the fantasy finally falls apart.
