All this mishmash springs from (because we are not very self conscious/aware of the fact we are creating it) our 'Theologies, our primitive faulty ‘‘beliefs’’ that create our collective reality (the one we’re sharing now, in relative) which are based in separation. That Life is not One. That all of Life is separated, fragmented from everything else. So, we concluded, if we are separated from Theo/God/Life then we must be separated from each other.
(As my friend would say)> Perhaps this would not be so bad if it simply produced our various religions. But the idea of separation from Deity that emerges from humanity’s “Separation Theology” produces much more than that. It produces a Separation Cosmology. That is, a cosmological way of looking at all of Life which holds that everything is separate from everything else. And a Separation Cosmology produces a Separation Psychology. That is, a psychological holding of our place in the scheme of things that places the individual self at the center of our considerations.
And a Separation Psychology produces a Separation Sociology. That is, a way of socializing with each other from a place of separation rather than unity or oneness; a way of interacting that declares our personal interests to be separate—or at least to come first. And a Separation Sociology produces a Separation Pathology. That is, pathological behaviors of self-destruction—evidenced individually and collectively throughout the world.
