One only has to listen to today's news to know what Seth is talking about!
“The intellect has been taught to divorce itself from its source. It realizes in that regard a sense of powerlessness, for to some extent it is philosophically cut off from its own source of power. When it looks, therefore, at the world of political events, the problems seem insoluble. Man makes many decisions that seem quite wrong to the intellect because of its belief systems, and because it is so cut off from other sources of information. A goodly number of those mistaken decisions, or “poor moves”, often represent self-corrective actions, decisions taken on knowledge not consciously perceived, but this escapes your consciousness.”
