Corruption of Modalities
The core component of beliefs is: what do you believe about yourself versus do you believe in yourself. The former is extrapersonal, the latter is intrapersonal. The two are frequently confused due to the self-reinforcing nature of beliefs. Beliefs self-reinforce agnostically, meaning it doesn't matter if the thing believed is true or false.
The agnostic attribute of beliefs is what makes understanding how your beliefs work seemingly impossible. The moment you believe, the self-reinforcing feelings, thoughts, and actions patterns surface, creating even more self-reinforcements.
All modalities that do not account for how beliefs work are destined to corrupted at some point due to the self-reinforcing nature of beliefs. Nothing corrupts like merit-based modalities. The moment a value is placed—given merit—it becomes transactable, meaning it's value can be artificially lower or higher depending on its perceived value to others.
If you believe other's value of you (extrapersonal) instead of your value (intrapersonal, believing in yourself) that belief gets self-reinforced, causing you to feel, think, and act in ways that run counter to your valuation.
That's an example of how modalities become corrupted.
