It is as if each member of the community just knows the feelings and thoughts of other members of the community, and all thoughts and feelings are communally known. The community as a whole thinks and feels as one organism and each member of the community embodies a complete image of the whole community, just as any piece of a hologram embodies a complete image of the whole scene seen from one particular perspective. Each member of Jack's community embodies an image of the whole community from a perspective appropriate to that individual, and all members participate in all other images to make the whole community. Jack has learned about and come to value individuality and individual rights and creativity. Jack is finding it impossible to fulfill the values of being an independent creative individual who is able to compete successfully, while remaining as a participating member of his growing community. Other community members are aware of his alienative thoughts about the constraints which the communal growing place upon his creative imagination. Jack's best friends are afraid of his strange thoughts and feelings, even though Jack thinks and feels that he is keeping his thoughts and feelings to himself. Others are disturbed at his efforts to withdraw into a private non- growing life, and wonder why he is leaving the communal life. Jack has left the jungle to go live in a big city as a lonely individual who does not participate any longer in a growing communal life. Jack is becoming a successful competitive individual who is making many creative contributions to the modern world of high technology. He has made many highly valued contributions to his new nation's national security system, which protects his new nation against the threat it perceives in other nations of which they know very little. Jack has forgotten what it was like to be a member of a growing community, but he is haunted by the memories which are no longer his. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
