In a lot of cases materialism produces serial killers and people who say they "snap" and they do something crazy.
This is because most people are not enlightened and they don't have knowledge of self. They identify themselves with their 3 dimensional, material
brain. The brain doesn't have thought, ideas or can recall specific memories at will. All of these things transcend space and time and it's impossible
for the material brain to carry out these things.
When we have an idea or recall a specific memory at will, we see the memory or idea that transcends space and time.
For instance, how does the material brain know which specific memory I want to recall? Say I wanted to recall a memory from little league baseball.
How does the material brain know that I want to recall this memory? How does the material brain know the difference between a memory from little
league baseball and a memory about the first time I went swimming?
This is not possible for the material brain. The brain reacts to things that occur in the body and in the environment. What happens with the serial
killer and people in general, is they associate the material brains reactions with self.
There has to be a higher self that looks at things from a higher dimensional view and this higher self transcends space and time. I call this the
field of mind or the field of consciousness. It has nothing to do with the paranormal and their have been peer reviewed papers published on field
theories of consciousness.
So when the material brain reacts to stress or depression, people identify those reactions with self. The higher self can look at these reactions and
say, "calm down, it's not that bad" or " it's not the end of the world."
Because of things like materialism, people associated and identify the material brains reaction to who they are.
