An Economic Doomsday IS Coming … J. D. Longstreet
Sunday, January 6, 2013
Deep within the temporal lobe of the brain is this tiny little limbic system structure in roughly the shape of an almond. This little mass of nuclei has its tiny little hands in most of our emotions and survival motivations. It is from this teensie little clump of “stuff” that the signal is sent to either fight, or — “get the heck out of Dodge.”
The amygdala does a lot more, but as I am most certainly NOT a brain surgeon, or a shrink, I’ll stick to what I can look up on Wikipedia or Google, or some other search engine.
For the purposes of this tome, the above information will do just fine, thank you.
Here’s the thing, as they say. If there IS such a thing as a gestalt, and that gestalt has an amygdala, then it is most certainly working overtime.
There seems to be a growing feeling, all over the world, that humanity is starring down the barrel of a cosmic gun. We are waiting for something to happen, something rather unpleasant. What it is exactly, we don’t know. But our collective amygdala is screaming at us to “beware.”
