... Catastrophe, Collective Trauma, and the Origin of Civilization Richard Heinberg If we consider mankind as a whole and substitute it for a single individual, we discover that it too has developed delusions which are inaccessible to logical criticism and which contradict reality. Investigation leads us to the same explanation as in the case of the single individual. They owe their power to the element of historical truth which they have brought up from the repression of the forgotten and primeval past. -SIGMUND FREUD Our society is made up of vast numbers of traumatized individuals, and our culture has come into being through a universally traumatizing process. The outcome -today's technological civilization with its massive psychopathologies and unending ecological disasters ...

... unconscious origin. Specifically, I feel that, if we as a species have been traumatized by the experience of several enormous cosmically induced catastrophes within the past few thousand years, we would tend to react much as a traumatized individual would. That is to say, we, like an individual, would try to develop methods to deny the trauma while creating opportunities of reliving it in disguise, both of which would help us to function in our daily lives. In an individual, it is understood that some part of him creates the delusions, (we know not which), while a different part creates the disguised reenactments. If we as a whole culture can behave like ...

... , to repeat his own act and to will to later generations the urge again to repeat and suffer guilt- or at least to imitate in an unconscious urge and still suffer guilt. A traumatic experience in an individual asks to be repeated; to the traumatic experiences of his ancestors he is an heir. Freud knew of no other paramount trauma that could become a source of universal guilt feeling. In "From the History of an Infantile Neurosis" (1918), Freud explained the universality of certain symbolic expressions in speech and in various fantasies, usually connected with parental coitus and the related castration fears, as grounded in persisting unconscious memories of archaic situations. We must finally ...

... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents To Know And Not To Know Freud wrote of two psychological reactions to a trauma. "The effects of the trauma are twofold, positive and negative. The former are endeavors to revive the trauma, to remember the forgotten experience, or, better still, to make it real- to live once more through a repetition of it. .. .These endeavors are summed up in the terms fixation to the trauma' and repetition compulsion'." About the other reaction Freud wrote: "The negative reactions pursue the opposite aim; here nothing is to be remembered or repeated ...

... From "Mankind in Amnesia" © 1982 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Archaic Trauma Quite a few phenomena of both neuroses of fear and neuroses of compulsion, though they may have been triggered by early infantile experiences, have their roots in archaic situations. They are of the nature of reactions to life-threatening circumstances. Individuals who are afraid of closed spaces, or panicked by wide-open areas, or fear views from heights, or flight in planes, may perchance be exhibiting atavistic fears engendered in the catastrophic experiences of ancestors. And as in structural biology in which a derivation of six fingers may often be traced to the same deformity in a quite removed ancestor ...

... From: The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER SIXTEEN The Transfiguration of Trauma One thunderstorm does not make a great god, nor does one volcano. Further, ordinary nature does not make a great god, neither its abundances nor its famines. The struggles of old bulls with young bulls over cows do not make a great god. A great god dwells in heaven, but can be everywhere. A people will recognize another people's great god as kindred but, too, the god is often hostile. Every great god emerges out of an apparently universal disaster in which the skies are involved, not excepting the great ...

7. Collective Amnesia In Everyday Life [Journals] [Kronos]
... ."- N. O. Brown Velikovsky has provided the psychological community with a challenging concept- collective amnesia. While Freud postulated individual amnesia, and Jung developed the notion of a collective psyche and unconscious, Velikovsky appears to have married these notions into a single construct. It postulates that if the human race ever came up against a trauma which threatened its very existence, the race as a whole would have a tendency to distort, censor, deny, and repress major elements of the experience in the same way that an individual screens out and denies traumata. As the individual has "put these events out of his mind", so, too, does the race ...

... be clarified by an analogy with the development of the individual psyche. It was Freud who showed the part played by traumatic experiences in the development of the individual personality. Freud might even be called the "catastrophist" of psychology. Some traumatic experiences have to be undergone by everyone in the process of growing up; for example, the trauma of birth and the trauma of being weaned. These traumatic experiences involve the shock of separation from the mother. In the Bible, the birth trauma, it could be held, is represented by the expulsion truth from Eden (the womb), while the trauma of weaning is represented by the Exodus from Egypt, the first being ...

We worked out certain psychological phenomena that we came to realize that were human characteristics of the way people react to a trauma, the way they remember certain events, and then as it is transmitted through the years, what happens to it. These are my own ideas and I take responsibility for them. They are not Dr. Velikovsky's, his work stands or falls by itself, so let me just proceed on that basis. Let me begin by ...

... by Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, he takes their work, revises it, and carries it one step further. It appears that the most terrifying events of history have been deliberately repressed. The global catastrophes of the past decimated the world's population and produced a severe psychological shock in the survivors. It is well known that victims of a trauma sometimes develop amnesia concerning the content of the trauma. In the case of the ancients, a compulsion to communicate their experiences competed with their need and that of their survivors to forget about them. The dilemma was solved by the construction of cosmological myths which served to mediate and transform horrible memories. Forgetfulness at the level of consciousness won ...
