CIVILISATION'S HABITUAL RUTS
All other animals need to use both their focused and panoramic awareness in order to survive.
All other animals repeat instinctive behaviour; but humans focus on and repeat learnt behaviour, we focus on and repeat all the things we want.
Modern civilisation depended on focusing to get things done. Humans have been developing a one-sided way of sensing life for hundreds of thousands of years, and now we are reaching a breaking point. This is more than a coincidence.
