bravo my dear, you're very close to a truth
did you know that in many traditions, especially the native ones, the call[ing] of a shaman[ka] is usually preceded by an illness?
the correct term however is an Egregore
Egregore (also egregor) is an occult concept representing a "thoughtform" or "collective group mind", an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The symbiotic relationship between an egregore and its group has been compared to the more recent, non-occult concepts of the corporation (as a legal entity) and the meme.
for once wiki has it right as they usually are worthless when dealing with these subjects
either the subject cant be found or religious and materialist types are constantly editing such subjects to make them out as crazy or non-existent, especially when it comes to subjects that are empowering
i'd avoid the "nothing will happen" threads and take a break from the DOOM-porn as the majority of these particular threads while claiming "nothing will happen" are simultaneously claiming that something negative WILL happen...
Immanentize the Eschaton!

Yeah you can comfortably say no Mayan apocalypse will happen, because it was made up in the 70's by Terrance Mckenna, yes the shroom head...
The Mayans know what will happen in a few thousand years but they sure didn't see the conquistadors coming.

Immanentize the eschaton.
it has been used by conservative critics as a pejorative reference to certain utopian projects, such as socialism, communism, and transhumanism. In all these contexts it means "trying to make that which belongs to the afterlife happen here and now (on Earth)" or "trying to create heaven here on Earth."
The phrase is cited in the Discordian text Principia Discordia, and appears fifteen times in Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea's The Illuminatus! Trilogy, the first of which is the first line of the novel, "It was the year when they finally immanentized the Eschaton."
Most people think great God will come from the sky
Take away ev'rything, and make ev'rybody feel high
But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth
And now you see the light
You stand up for your right, yeah!
