If we looked at the human world as if it were a single brain, what is our combined dominant personality? Well, our reality is contradictory to say the least. We frown upon violence and imprison murderers, yet we engage in violent practices within our police force and sentence many to death when we go to war. In addition, there are many environmental organisations working tirelessly to invest in methods that can help to heal our planet, whilst others are working tirelessly to continue to harm the planet for profit.
Humanity appears to be at a crossroads. We seem to be at war with ourselves. On the one hand, we are living in an amoral free-for-all, on the other; we live in a world that promotes peace and justice. In some ways, this has led to a split-brain society. Conforming to the masses also forces us to conform to the noise – the politics and the media. We either embrace accepted truths or deal with the inconvenient facts – the reality of which can be too much to bear. As a result, it appears that we haven’t yet been able to collectively consolidate our motivations as a society, which means we cannot function effectively.
We are all individually living our own reality, and much like the schizophrenic brain, this is fractured and fragmented when compounded to form a single human perceptual experience. As individuals, we are focused on our own personal quest for survival, our own beliefs and values take precedence, even at the expense of others. In essence, we as humans are a magnification of the single schizophrenic brain.
