This presentation will touch upon the realities of our modern life, taken over by Fear Contagion – fear of The Virus, fear of loss (of work, of loved ones, of health, of love, of life), fear of exclusion (from the multiple echo chamber groups), fear of living. When one is subjected to this amount of massive fear pressure, he/she tends to exercise the Reptilian Brain processing, if to utilize Paul MacLean’s Triune Brain (evolutionary) model. MacLean’s Triune Brain was/is a brilliant invention: when complementing the basic neurobiology phenomena and concepts (of neuroplasticity, neurointegration, connectomes, fire together-wire together) – it becomes a useful tool for any researcher, and especially to any psychohistorian, in finding explanations to this frequent question: What on Earth Is Going Wrong?
