Our human societies are based on common rituals of interpersonal interaction. It is within these common and repetitious structures that we both find the elements of mutualistic coherence and compassion. It is also within the comprehension of how these societal structures influence us on the unconscious level that we might realize what elements need to shift in order to build new means of interpersonal understanding. While it might be common to regard things such as motivation and personal drive as the principal agents of change, I believe they must exist within a framework of how the human organism and it’s long / intergenerationally developed societal networks form and reform in order to best understand how to meaningfully enact new rituals and lasting change.
