A brief theory on collective consciousness and it's effect on our place in the world.
I'd like to preface this as a simple theory, and not one I neccesarily subscribe to myself. I have had many ideas for books and the like over the
years, and one horror type story in particular I created an idea for why most humans do not see or experience the odd and unbelieveable. Recently
however I wondered if it wasn't simply an interesting possibility ofr hte reality we live in ourselves. Thats the vague explination over with, onto
the idea itself:
If you look back into our history, you'll find belief in the supernatural far more rife, if you look into the roots of various fairytails you will
find that back when they originated, people truely believed that the beings that these stories were about co-existed with them. These days most people
tend to consider such things as myths with no real basis, or basis merely in people misunderstanding events.
The theory that I would offer is based on the conectedness of humans. Various people believe that at some fundamental level humans are psychic and
conedted to each other, prehaps throuhg some form of matrix (apologies if i'm confusing a couple of beliefs into one there, please correct me).
What if with the evolution of societies belief in religion and science the collective 'conscious' of humanity resolved to push the things that
society nolonger wished to believe in, out of their sphere of understanding (or themselves out of that sphere). What if mankind itself pushed itself
into a new 'reality' or 'phase' or whatever you'd like to call it, one in which humanity could no longer percieve these things it no longer
wnated to accept.
This would fit in nicely with people 'sensitive' being able to see beyond the general perception of man, and the more willing to believe being more
liekly to have an encounter with those things which we all are trying so unconsciously to ignore.
I'd like to hear your thoughts on this idea and if you think it could possibly have any merit as a theory of mankinds existence in this world. I'll
try to expand as best I can from what i;ve developed for this idea if anyone has any questions on it. I would really love to hear your opinions.
