Abstract

The ’real world’ is always perceived through one’s cultural and developmental blinders, and assigned meaning from that context. Those who have endured the 20th century – the consequences of two World Wars, preparations for Global Thermonuclear War, the aftermath of a closely associated colonialism, and its rebirth as neocolonialism – have observed and participated in the grossest failures of regulation of collective consciousness. Those of us who dwell within the Belly of the Beast particularly experience the ways in which the madness of the collective is expressed in the lives of the individuals who constitute it.

The regulation and stabilization of individual and collective consciousness, which, for humans, are particularly linked, is not well understood in current scientific terms. That regulation has, certainly, been the focus of religious and legal attention since the invention of agriculture allowed humans to live in large groups.
