So you agree that there is a "first" or primary change... and note that I mention his ackowledgement that it was the isolation and naivete' that fosters the feeling of living outside of 'polite socitey' and ABOVE it.
...thought I put this in the Mental Health thread...
My strong personal feeling is that what we call neurosis arises from an organism's essenital needs not being met. Whether or not the unmet condition or imbalance is recognizeable to another of the same species is likely irrelevant.
Exponential population growth, static & unfulfilling existences, "toxicity" in any form or exposure, etc. all aggravate the expressed natural behavior(s).
Are you referring to "group consciousness" or "shared awareness" in different terms?
There's more here than 'chat' can tolerate I think.
I'm not convinced of this second phase however it's intriguing and there's aspects there that I can't refute immediately(ha!) so... I'm pretty baked. Think I used up my super-awareness & need a nap.
