Herd Behaviour and cultural effects and our full human potential
This first part repeats parts of and needs combining with - common to all - the first mini summary. This is developing all the time still.
As a culture, some humans can be left passively focussing on a TV screen all day. Herds and animal groups, such as humans, have different behaviour patterns to solo animals. Pidgeons in a group are more relaxed than when alone. The reason is obvious, in a herd or any animal group, only one needs to pick up any warning signs, this is actively communicated, and the others respond without hesitation or question.
Life would be a whole lot easier if humans could trust their leaders in a similar way. At least those on look-out, at least our leaders need to some sort of general awareness from all perspectives, a broadband awareness.
There are many things humans need, but the first step at this point of our evolutionary development, for our survival as a species, must be to at least check out the viability of what i'm saying about broadband sensing. This ability to relate to life using all our senses, with all their possibilities of perception. I'm saying something very basic, at present we're simply not getting the whole picture because we're only using part of our sensory abilities to perceive it with.
The original use of this way of using the senses is completely redundant, but the side effects are that it opens up another dimension of an individuals relationship with the world, of feeling part of the whole.
Animals don't merely secure their physical survival by broadbanding. Broadbanding is an attitude to life, it's a way to be, and this experience has psychological consequences. Humans are missing out on an easily available, non-mystical, practical way of stilling the mind and being awake and aware, finding a connection with the world and a form of inner balance, and possibly also feeling safe. And consequently, human culture is missing out on it as well.
The continual want for a focus point, an aim, a reason to live, something to want, to think in terms of focal points, is all we know how to do. We don't know how it is to be without a focus point. From a broadband perspective, we've lost the balance, and we can't expect to feel whole without it. And any culture can't expect to survive without it.
We are missing out on nature's way of encouraging a feeling of safety and peace of mind. Our internal thinking can develop unhindered, without a moment's pause, always looking at focal points, and then wanting, doing, getting, - realising these (lit: making them real), trying to confirm them ... without a moment's pause.
A moment's pause to look around and check and wait and be fully receptive and integrated .. it's a feeling of wholeness ... it will depend on how often you do it, it's effects are very gentle, but far more powerful than a cuppa tea or any other way of 'turning off' and having a break. Periodically taking time for a moment of being actively receptive with the broadband senses, is an essential basis of peace of mind and being in touch with our full human potential.
No modern culture can afford to ignore the possibilities this opens up for securing our survival ... individually and as a creative modern culture ... such a valuable human resource cannot be ignored.
