    "Resonant learning
    Many animals learn patterns of behaviour from other members of their group through imitation. For
    example, some species of bird, like blackbirds, learn parts of songs by listening to the songs of
    nearby adults. This is a kind of cultural inheritance.
    Cultural inheritance reaches its highest development in humanity where all human beings learn a
    great variety of patterns of behaviour, including the use of language, as well as many physical and
    mental skills, like doing arithmetic, playing the flute or knitting. From the point of view of morphic
    resonance, the transfer of these skills is a kind of resonance process."

    True and its also the causality of most mental disorders in culture.
    (i believe, i dont believe, i am agnostic) is actually literally irrelevant except in culture its primary. If thats the primary then some folks are going to go insane parroting that regardless. It creates a false sense of reality in its recursive tendencies. Which appears to be normal thinking in culture. And its that feedback loop that gets completely whacky in the mentally ill. A kind of literal trancendental illusion that we can all see since the individual isnt able to even function at some point.

    "mental"

    "the Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget* found that
    before about the age of ten or eleven, European children were like ‘primitive’ people.They did not know that the mind was confined to the head; they thought it extended into the world around them."

    Carl Sagan liked to say, ‘Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary
    evidence.’
    “Where is the extraordinary evidence for the materialist claim that the mind is nothing but the activity of the brain?”
    “Direct experience offers no support for the extraordinary claim that all experiences are inside brains. Direct experience is not irrelevant to the nature of consciousness: it is consciousness.”
