In this lesson, we explore the anatomy of conflict from the first layer (-4) - The Collective Consciousness. We'll look at what the 'Collective Consciousness layer really is and will explore the set of shared beliefs, ideas and moral attitudes which are often operating not just within ourselves but also reinforced all around us in our culture.
We'll see how these memes are replicated and passed down culturally much like genes are passed down biologically - storing all our past narratives, beliefs, and wounding from multiple generations dating back thousands of years that still operate our primal fears inside us today.
