What is popular culture and how does it evolve and grow? How do people establish core beliefs and do these beliefs affect their perception of the universe? These questions are probed in this groundbreaking essay. More
In popular culture many paradigms exist alongside each other, none of which are right or wrong. There is no one real meaning to life, only a set of possible paths leading in many directions. The area that should be investigated, however, is the development of propaganda and its influence on the shaping of our shared symbol system, and the possible influence these systems may have on what Carl Jung referred to as “the collective unconsciousness.” Is there a telepathic field shared by all humanity? Or thousands of mini-fields competing for the telepathic airwaves? A unique history of popular culture is explored, one that places Congo Square in New Orleans at its epicenter.
