Story of a documentary film maker who, being very impressed by the superior, pure spirituality of the primitive people he is filming, hastens to deflect their natural fascination with, and urge to adopt, his western technological advances. His injunction: “don’t forsake your spiritual strength (‘soul’) for recidivist western materialism”. How else can progress be measured other than physically? But man avers there are other, better, forms of progress beyond the physical, while his NS/nervous system is quite unable to measure other than material advances.
Why this tug-of-war between more advanced areas of the NS warning off the lower parts from pursuing material progress?: it is a balancing mechanism (and more). A peoples’ natural art forms are a direct reflection of their contemporary level of evolution. An art form chiefly concerned with PL/primary level activity (e.g., sex, food, shelter) reflects a lesser advanced intellectually capable people.
What would be the popular art form of an intellectually advanced people? is there any contemporary art form based solely on SL/secondary level rather than PL? Everyday activities are a man’s art form; when attracted to a particular song, book or TV program, that is his instant level of evolution in the NS/nervous system. More primitive people (including primitive areas of your NS) do not dream of freedom; they don’t even have the concept, the word. A corollary to this: the really captured have no opposition.
They cease to struggle; they have no enemy any longer, their jailers are their only friends. Life is the supreme penal system—the prisoners have no inkling they are in captivity. They are completely dependent upon their jailer, Life, feeling it is no enemy. Thus they cannot properly even dream of freedom; they wouldn’t be able to move anyway without any opposition. Life then makes everyone blame their ennui-status-quo on what is in effect a non-existent jailer/opposition.
Law: the more complex anything is, the more alive it is. The primitive are less alive. A smaller group is less alive than a larger one. Those who denounce, decry material progress—which is the overall visible progress of Life—are less complex/alive than non-critics The more complex you are, the more fun it is to be alive…but only on the invisible level, not the PL since it cannot be more enriched than it already is

A new voice in the old Dialogue may say, “If it’s not under
my control, whatever it is, it’s cute, just cute, and that’s
all.” (In some areas of the new world, “cuteness” is the French-
kiss of death.)

not actually talking about what such a man would think we’re
talking about… that’s how we can talk about it without getting
things all out of whack.)

Enriched intelligence doesn’t see Life as necessarily a
closed-ended-system, but rather as a multi-opened one, such as
discovering a lower, older door to the past, and a higher,

The talent of those “center stage” may well be only the
ability to GET center-stage. (Note however, under many old-world
conditions this is all that is necessary.)
