We begin to think and fear in accordance with the rules set by some power outside of our control.
We (society) are learning, or at least being trained. We become conditioned much like a dog learns to obey the “sit” command. We begin to think and fear in accordance with the rules set by some power outside of our control, outside of our view. And as this happens, we begin to wither and lose our innate senses and abilities to think for ourselves, the ability to create, to grow. This cycle is self-fulfilling and sucks us into smaller and smaller boxes until we find ourselves trapped in our modern culture with no clear means of escape.
