Television News replaced dream exploration

“[Today] for news or for advice you watch your morning television news, which provides you with a kind of manufactured dream that to some extent technologically serves the same purpose.  Instead of sending cameramen and newspaper people to the farthest corners of the earth, early man sent out aspects of himself to gather the news and to form it into dream dramas.  Oftentimes much of the material did not need to become conscious: It was “unconsciously” acted upon, turned directly into action.  Now such dreams simply act as backup systems, rising to the fore whenever they are needed.  Their purpose was and is to increase the value fulfillment of the species and of the individual.”
(Dreams, “Evolution” and Value Fulfillment Vol 2Session 933)
