Integrationalism is a thought framework built on the notion that all things in existence are physiologically interconnected in the sub-atomic domain as it is understood in string theory. These collections of essays exploiting spiritual disincentives for humanity make necessary linkages between individualism and spirituality(ism). Integrationalism identifies classical individualistic understandings and virtues as the root cause of human-kind’s most daunting PEST (political, economic, sociological, and technological) problems. This text establishes that spirituality (and all of its subordinate ideologies) endorses individualism; compelling an end of separation, rendering it impossible to implement the kinds of pervasive harmonies that spiritual rhetoric holds in modernity. Through an economic analysis of decision incentives, this text explores historic philosophy on the subject of spirituality and individualism; as well as, modern social sentiment/problems/solution sets. This exploration is important in establishing an ethical model for future human (and technological) interaction, free from the ambiguities produced by individualistic philosophy.
