B. Human Hologram
5. Around the age ten, the excess synapses in a child’s brain undergo another draconian pruning, leaving behind a pattern of emotion and thought that are, for better or worse, unique. The pruning, I suppose, happens during “acculturation,” resulting in a deviation from “what is natural.” Every child has shared experiences of being touched by angels, fairies and other nature spirits. However, as the baby is soon nurtured in the socio-cultural tradition of its parents, it acquires a “persona,” a public image independent from “nature,” while its earlier experiences are relegated as pigments of the imagination.
3. The human brain may have been limited in the same way. Many things don’t exist for people not because they are unreal, but because the brain has not been shaped to perceive them. People are like radios stuck with three channels – waking, sleeping and dreaming, unaware of realms beyond time and space. The link to deeper realms was overlaid by the unnatural world of human societies. People become conditioned in cultural patterns and belief systems not founded on natural laws. I suppose, the truth was veiled by “adult ways” anchored on separateness rather than unity with nature.
