Collective Implicit: The sense of being (part of) something larger

In any given interaction, there is a shared field that we apprehend implicitly. In addition, over the long stretch of our being human, the various experiences of Shared Implicit have slowly accreted into a Collective Implicit.

From Shared Implicit to Collective Implicit

This is related to the thesis of Robert Wright, in “The Evolution of God”: The notion of divinity slowly developed as small tribes turned into larger and larger social organizations, in order to make up for the loss of social regulation that used to result from personal interaction in a small tribe.

One of the ways that the Collective Implicit anifests is as faith healing – – in a broad sense of faith that does not just include religious faith.
