Collective-Consciousness-Real-Or-Not-Bob Davis Podcast 1074

Is The Collective Consciousness Real Or Not?

Firstly do you think if something bad happens in the world we all feel it? Let’s talk about it in Collective-Consciousness-Real-Or-Not-Bob Davis Podcast 1074.

Secondly is the collective consciousness real?

Conscious Versus Unconscious

Most importantly Carl Jung discovered something he called the Collective UNCONSCIOUS in the early 20th century.

Controversial Discovery

In fact ever since then it’s been controversial.

One Hundred Year Debate

That is to say people have been debating the inner workings of the mind since Jung’s ground breaking discovery.

What Is The Collective Unconscious?

But what’s significant now are proliferating ideas about what the collective unconscious is and exactly what it does. Not to mention the idea that somehow it meant a collective CONSCIOUSNESS which it did not.

Carl Jung

Certainly there are a lot of videos and books about what Jung said.

Or what he ‘meant’.

And many incorrect or blatantly false quotes attributed to Jung.

However there’s no substitute for actually reading Jung.

Psychology Of The Unconscious

Especially his first major book The Psychology Of The Unconscious.

Let’s Say You’ve Been Isolated

Furthermore someone isolated for a few weeks somewhere is unlikely to be aware of anything happens outside of his surroundings despite the so called Collective Consciousness.

Psychic Internet

In short The Collective Unconscious was never a psychic Internet.

And never intended to be taken as such.

Making A Buck With Fairy Tales

Yet a lot of people are making a buck telling people the collective consciousness is in fact a human version of the Internet.

It’s simply a phrase for shared concepts.

Finally the reader might wonder why this is important.

Superstitions

Because of the so called collective we believe things that have never been proven.

In fact, superstitions.

Bad Decisions

That is to say our superstitions can lead us to make bad decisions individually and collectively.

Universal To Humanity

To sum up Carl Jung discovered what might be referred to as a universal human operating system.

Access Is Limited

However by definition we don’t have conscious access to it.

And I am not sure we want to.

Difficult Times

In conclusion we’re living through extraordinary and difficult times.

Thinking Clearly Required

Above all we need to be able to think clearly.

Uncertainty-Principle-Bob Davis Podcast 1039

The Uncertainty Principle

Firstly the uncertainty principle is about uncertainty in our world these days. Nomads deal with uncertainty every day. For more information check out Uncertainty-Principle-Bob Davis Podcast 1039.

New Campsite

Secondly as if to pay off on the Uncertainty Principle I had to move to a new campsite this week.

Bureau Of Land Management Rule

Certainly the rule on Bureau of Land Management free campgrounds is 14 days and you move on.

Pushing The Rules

I pushed the rule a little spending nearly three months in one location. The good news? I can come back in two weeks!

Community

On the other hand I learned a lot about the nomad community.

Life Long Friends

And made a lot of hopefully life long friends.

True Grit

Even more I personally witnessed resourcefulness and true grit among my full time nomad friends.

Happy To Move

Therefore I am not in the least upset that I had to move.

Passes Rule

Most importantly the ranger was great. We had a nice conversation about all the many sites one can access with a Long Term Visitor pass, which I possess.

Uncertainty

Above all it made me think about the uncertainty we all feel about how things are going.

Bricks And Sticks

Most importantly back in the so called bricks and sticks world.

Back In The World

Or ‘back in the world’ as I like to say.

Caution No Certainty Ahead

Moreover I do not think any of us are going to wake up some sunny morning in the near future feeling certainty.

In fact I don’t think that’s going to happen for at least one generation.

Stable and Certain World Closed For One Generation

So if you’re an adult now perhaps you’ll be able to contribute to a more stable and certain world.

Living With Uncertainty

However for the time being we’re going to have to live with uncertainty. Learn more in Uncertainty-Principle-Bob Davis Podcast 1039.

Unpacking At The New Campsite

Finally join me in this podcast as I unpack and all the mats and boxes of firewood. The groceries. Chair. You know.

Don’t Be Fooled By Cheerful Nomads

And we’ll talk about how nomads deal with uncertainty in an almost cheerful manner.

We Attack Change

In the same vein I revisit the idea that to attack change we have to observe and orient ourselves to a new situation more often than back in the world.

Make Quick Decisions

In addition we then have to make quick decisions and act on them.

Have A Lot Of Grit

Aside from the fires and pot lucks there’s a lot of grit out here in the land of the nomad.

And Surprising Flexibility

In the same vein the flexibility and willingness to embrace change is often visible among people out here you’d never expect.

Life Turning Points

In short there are three turning points in everyone’s life that can lay us out.

Death, Divorce and losing a job.

Easier On The Road

To sum up I have to feel like it is easier out here to deal with that kind of trauma and learn to embrace the future as a result.

More Fun

In conclusion I certainly can’t predict the future. But for me living out here on the road is actually easier and more fun than back in the world.

Nomads Navigating Change

Above all when it comes to nomads navigating change freedom on the road comes with a cost. Find out more in Nomads-Navigating-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1007.

Embracing Change

Firstly when I made the decision to downsize into a 2000 Ford E450 ambulance I was embracing change in a big way.

New Life

Secondly I found a new life on the road.

And I love it.

Letting Go Of Old Life Can Be Difficult

But these days I’m having to let go of parts of my old life.

Struggle With The Old and New

Even more most nomads I am sure struggle with the old and the new.

Business Networking

Case in point. My business networking group.

Video Conferencing Platforms

To clarify one of the great changes was the adoption of video conferencing software.

Mobile Tech Means Flexibility

Certainly platforms like Zoom provide digital nomads with tremendous cost effective flexibility.

For Some It’s A Struggle

However some companies and groups struggle to integrate video conferencing and remote work into their operations.

On The Beach

Therefore we nomads often find ourselves ‘on the beach’ when decisions are made to do away with remote work options and video conference platforms in the day to day.

Buh Bye

Consequently I will be saying goodbye to a business networking group I’ve come to depend on.

Easy Come Easy Go On The Road

In short some might say ‘easy come…easy go’.

Emotional Effects Of Decisions

The surprise for me, is the discovery of how emotionally I was effected by this development.

Never Question

Most importantly I have never questioned my decision to become a digital nomad and ply America’s back roads.

Never Look Back

Best decision I ever made.

Doesn’t Make It Easier

But that doesn’t make it any easier when you have to say goodbye to people you care about and have loved working with.

Nomads Deal With Change Issues

Finally I know all digital nomads deal with these kinds of issues.

Crossroads Opportunity

Even more we find crossroads like this a challenge and opportunity for growth.

Not Easy

Doesn’t make it any easier.

Communications and Connectivity

To sum up communications options and connectivity have never been better or easier.

My Mobile Internet Is Rad

To clarify I’m going to explain how my new mobile internet connection works flawlessly.

Better Mobile Tech Every Day

Therefore it’s too bad when groups and companies don’t realize mobile tech is getting better and better every day.
