We studied limitations in the thinking processes of average individuals, and what these limitations meant in terms of behavior and social destination.

For example, behaviors that accomplish immediate family objectives, when taken by six billion individuals, also result in scarcity, conflict, and environmental destruction.

When these future conditions remain unseen, unconnected to their causing behavior, or undervalued, there is no reason for an individual to choose a different behavior or for us to expect a better social destination.
