About partial consciousness
When we view a group of growing shipanzees or other group of growing animals, such as elephants – we find there support, love and mutual care.
We would definitely not find there emotions such bullieng, crulty, humiliation, discrimination, using advantage over others, boycotting, aggression etc.
But where we do find it, and quiet frequently, is among young growing human beings.
Childyern and adolescent grew in such company of kids, and the sensitive and unique is the child – the more punishing and cruel it would be.
Children are the most cruel to their companions in the class at school. The tough and the tough emerge out almost unharmed, but the delicate, the gentle and especially the highly sensitive – suffer much.
This is not discussed much (except when it detiriorates into violence), but childern’s and adolescent’s groups, could be very difficult to be in.
Now, if there is such a difference between life in a young animal herd and in human young – groups, the question rises: how come?
Why is the atmosphere in a class of children must be so poisonous socially and interpersonaly?
Well the direction could sound strange for it is completely in the unknown. And is to do with having partial consiousness which the animals, (except having instictive consiousness) do not have.
I know, it sounds paradoxical, for how come having more consiousness, could be so bad than almost not having it at all?
The reasons for this is that there is a combination of three factors in the way the young treat each other in a group, one is an unformed, unriped raw and partial consiousness, the second is a powerful ego (an infantile self), and the third is the double face standards of
Society they are growing into, on the outside it preaches for tolerance and equality, but its subtext is: what matteres is to get as much as possible close to the top, even if you have to step on few of your fellow students.
This three, produces an unberable atmosphere, in which the subtext of everything is two: competition and coperasson.
There are two ways out of this, one is to give up what little consiousness we do have (we try hard to give it up and it works a bit), the other way is to develop our partial consiousness as much as we can, which will free us (to a degree) from the dominance of societie’s norms, and from the dominance of our ego.
But as it is hard to imagine a whole class developing their partial consiousness, this road or path, is still for the few who love truth more than what life has got to offer.
