According to Jungian psychology, individuation (German: Individuation) is a process of psychological integration. “In general, it is the process by which individual beings are formed and differentiated [from other human beings]; in particular, it is the development of the psychological individual as a being distinct from the general, collective psychology
Paul D. MacLean is saying that the Limbic system is the center which applies an over-simplistic dual decision process to a problem or need. It is vastly reducing our abilities. Also, that it adds a little ‘affect’ of it’s own by means of the feelings those events provoke.
Using emotion distorts reality, by means of altering your own perception of the world in your favor or to make up for limited knowledge and still gain self-esteem.
The real me doesn’t have a voice. It just watches me act and think like a fool, or die trying not to act or think at all. This is the way. This is true life.
I’m always astounded, that the ignorant (not an insult), can’t see that their minds can imagine the universe in all it’s vastness, with all it’s types of laws that might be required to create the various objects found in it if it wills to, but prefers an exclamation, that it demands to be perpetually entertained.
Can you see what we have been divided into?
In the mid-nineties, the Internet was beginning to stretch itself to more and more personal computers. At that time, there wasn’t initially a huge uptake by businesses, as they couldn’t yet see the possibilities the technology would provide in the future.
At the point, it was functional, in it’s simplest form, like the human mind.
Currently, it also resembles the average human mind because from 4 year-old to 94 year-old, everyone is using it to a lesser or greater extent. Everyone who is using it has had the opportunity to fill their heads with every imaginable truth and lie which could all be perceived as the truth. It couldn’t be further from the truth.
It is dustbin we allow anyone to throw any old crap in-to, and allow everyone to take out from. Why would you do that?
Everyone who uses it beyond a sensible amount is thrown back to the stone-age concerning maturity. Adults seem to be reverting to childish spite.
You and I, no doubt, will be used to receiving praise, in various forms, for our achievements and success. That is what we are conditioned for.
Long ago, the Ancient Egyptians believed you had to buy your way into heaven. If the heart was pure, it would weigh the same as a feather. But if it was heavy and soiled by one’s own actions towards others, you could buy your way in. The flaw in this can be seen in the fact the pyramids were plundered before the dead royals could hire the removals guys to pick up their golden gear.
On the contrary, others have since said you can only take with you what will fit through the eye of a needle. I like this view. It implies something detaches and goes through like consciousness.
As such, greed can be manipulated by creating a feeling of inferiority in the population by introducing role-models. A royal family, draped in gold, achieving many good things in public view, or stream of celebrities, dressed up for reward ceremonies will do nicely. Look at what you could have and look like if you just put your back into it!
When minds are conditioned to receive shallow rewards, the reward-based center of the brain becomes overly-emphasized as a response method by allowing other features to slip into a background called the unconscious. The dog-eat-dog society is rooted in this feature.
Try this for one day. Go where you would normally join in. It might be social media, pub or anything else you do, and just observe.
Try not to like or dislike anything or anyone. Don’t join in. Just be there without getting dragged in. You can see it best if you go out drinking with friends. I promise you will see how society works. They will try to get you to join in, over and over again. Resist.
