Here's an article, explains very well:

www.primitivism.com...

Because of these alien ego-identifications we no longer hear our own tribal/primal voice. In order for deep thinking to commence again in the human mind, it is necessary to break down these internal authorities, overcome the resistances, that prevent tribal ideas from coming to consciousness. The modern problem is not simply that we do not listen to primal ideas, but rather that primal ideas are unable to come to consciousness at all, because of the internal counterforces, or ego-alien identifications, that contradict and overpower them.

These ego-alien identifications, built up over the course of a lifetime, cohere and form a distinct, circumscribed personality, or false self, that represents and enforces the rules and regulations of civilization. This false self is observable in the frozen facial expressions, stereotypic gestures, and unexamined behavioral patterns of the general public. This false self determines much of our everyday lives, so that we are seldom the origin of our actions. We lapse into the false self at the first sign of danger, under stress, or simply because it is the path of least resistance.

That's a very interesting analysis.

In relation to authority figures, does it pertain to a feeling of self-importance which is held above the general populations and holds them back from putting their own lives at any risk in situations like this?

How widespread is the notion of self-preservation to other groups, like firefighters and the military? Is it growing, or has it always been like this?

Does the role-playing within the entertainment industry provide further effects to the general public?

Is the Digital Ego a factor?

lots of questions...
