This normalisation is
neurological and physiological as much as it is psychological. The
child's neurology and physicality slowly 'adapts' to the environment of
schooling (a natural enough process, it's part of growing and knowing
the world through the body as a total sensory entity - yet the schooling
environment lacks key experiential learnings related to embodied self
knowledge, and this distorts all who pass through it to greater or
lessor degree -)
In seeking to address this distortion,
regaining a trust of embodied self knowledge and self empathy is vital.
That process cannot be predicted, medicalised, therapeuted.
It cannot be packaged, sold nor can it become an ideological end.
It can be supported, mostly by honesty, healthful diet, good friends, closeness with nature, and it is truly a process that is the natural base of healthy community - a community that knows itself.
Well, this is much less a matter of natural instinct, and much more a matter of conditioning. a matter of the distortion of our innate biological mandate towards empathic self awareness; and with that, empathy as a perceptive ability.
The matter is too important to future generations, let alone those who live today, for it to be treated with any degree of flippancy, outside of using comedy to sweeten a rather bitter pill... the pill of truth.
It's not surprising so many do feel this way, that there's a human 'instinct' that is problematic since it's what the Christian nations have been telling themselves for thousands of years.. "You must beat the devil out of the child to save the child for God."
It takes time for such a corrosive pathology to heal. It takes, above all, honesty. Scientific honesty. It's time that all 'schooling' be made subject to some Scientific Honesty.
