I WAS STRUCK BY THIS SCULPTURE after reading an article about right-wing protests in eastern Germany (Chemnitz). The artist was making a point about wolves hunting in packs. Despite cultures pretensions about civility, intense survival instincts still break out when aroused by fear (e.g. activating that part of the brain called the amygdala, or more informally the lizard brain). So any concerted effort to instill fear in us about the 'other' or 'the devil' can really ignite passions and in lightning speed. Combine that with strong ideas about race and national identity and presto! You have an excuse to dehumanise and do harm to others. I don't for a moment pretend that I don't have this lizard brain in myself, but any acting out is kept in check by an awareness that I COULD become a perpetrator.
This is the essence of why we should bother turning toward our pain/shadow/unloved aspects of ourselves - to decrease the likelihood of it breaking out uncontrollably under pressure of propoganda or environmental stress.
Technology and being 'smart' won't change it. We can however bio-hack it with powerful modalities like Breathwork and Bio-Energetics. There practices elicit strong emotional responses which help diffuse mind-body tension. More room for love and grace then appears. And god we need that now more than ever.
