The knowledge of such relationships enables them to understand and control objective processes in order to fulfill expectations of achieving desired goals. The technical relationships are means to ends. The ends justify their focusing attention upon those relationships. When technically oriented people seek governmental support for research into relationships they justify the proposed support in terms of the benefits which may be expected to result. When technically oriented people attempt to enter into intimate personal relationships they may carry over into such situations the perspectives indicated above. They may perceive the personal relationships as means to ends and justify focusing attention on those relationships in terms of the benefits which may be expected to result. The personal relationships may be regarded as means which are not valued apart form utilitarian considerations. To enter into personal relationships as means limits the kinds of personal relationships which may develop. Genuine personal intimacy may not be achieved for ulterior motives---even though the motives may be good and/or unconscious. To justify intimate personal relationships in terms of their being means toward good goals is to undermine the possibilities of the relationships. Technocrats will thus find it very difficult to discover the full range of possibilities of intimate personal relationships. Their objective research will fail to reveal the nature of genuine intimacy in its varied forms --- because many of those forms will be obscured by their motivations. These considerations indicate that the transcendence of the technocratic society will not be facilitated by technically oriented people; especially if their orientation is exclusive. Transcendence will involve people who meet each other without ulterior motives. Through their involvement new insights into the possibilities of personal intimacy will emerge and be shared among those who are dedicated to openness and honesty. Such insights will facilitate states of consciousness which well free people from technocracy and its imprisoning perspectives. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
