Successors need to overcome their parents. That is the golden rule for social and individual evolution. This implies that the evolution the next generation depends on its capacity to build upon what already exists.
Metaphorically it can be said that in evolutionary cultures the roof of the parents is the floor of their children. In involutionary cultures the roof of the children is the floor of their parents.
The problem of the new generations of leading cultures is naturally the feeling of inferiority complexes to overcome the existing culture if they are in a leading environment.
A culture involves when individualism prevails. Surviving cultures include necessarily a dominant individualism. This is not the case of subsistent cultures where the group prevails over individuals. Surviving cultures produce survivors who necessarily are multi-addictive and need to behave as fundamentalists.
Addictions are a natural response to an uncertain environment in which a person feels hopeless, impotent and without identity.
When these conditions are given, individuals enter the shelter of addictions.
Addictions are infinite. The more unbalanced an individual is, the “heavier” the addictions he adopts.
Considering the level of self-destruction or destruction four segments can be characterized:
1) Pleasure addictions: providing instants of extreme pleasure.
2) Rational/spiritual addictions: providing sensation of absolute empowerment.
3) Suicidal addictions: providing the power of “dancing” beyond human limits.
4) Terrorist addictions: providing the power of feeling God.
