We are forming the Typology Tribe at Central. So I wonder what kind of tribe are we forming?
Is it a peaceful tribe without irritation and disappointment? Or is it a tribe where we empahtise with one another?
The fact is we talk past one another except when we are arguing. And alas, on a regular basis some of us are banned. In tribal terms this means being banished from the tribe, being ostracised and sent into the wilderness to die.
And yet we keep coming back. It's all a bit mysterious. It's as though there is no individual consciously in charge, but just as our bodies work unconsciously day and night, so Central works unconsciously and we are just along for the ride.
This is somewhat alarming for the literate individual, it's as though our individuality is being extinguished by the unconscious tribe.
But we shouldn't worry as animals are completely unconscious and yet the fill every evolutionary niche from the deepest sea to the troposphere.
Yes, we are going back to the bi-cameral mind. And as you know the origin of consciousness is found in the breakdown of the bi-cameral mind. So all we are doing is returning to our ancestoral past when the bi-cameral mind spoke to itself as though it were hearing the voice of a god. So once again we are becoming our own god, and we are setting up our household gods once again. And Typology is our household god, suitably enigmatic yet embracing all disciplines. No one is left out. We are all part of typology tribe in the global village.
