Our social field is absorbed by civilisation, and most of that absorption is an unconscious one. The first realisation of the manipulation is usually a perception of how they are manipulated rather than how I am manipulated, and to what extent I am manipulated.
The problem with subjectivity is a question of degrees of programming. Hypocrisies are often expressions of the struggle between what one believes and what one is programmed to believe; between what we think we are and the way we have been indoctrinated to be.
Underneath all this, there may be a sense of displacement, a yearning for something lost, a feeling that something is missing – our humanity.
Humanity is so deeply lost to us now that we don’t even know that we’ve lost it.
