      • “ The orientation response is particularly stressing when a novel event or fact challenges one’s whole world view. Given an elaborate ideology—Catholicism, Marxism, or whatever—we quickly recognize (or think we recognize) familiar elements in otherwise novel stimuli and this puts us at ease.
