choices - consciousness or consumerism ...

The 3 stages of life:

1. A child wants a shiny new car, as soon as he/she sees one. Eventually it dawns that the car isn't new, or novel, for very long. Maybe need a better one ...

2. The wiser person gains more satisfaction from renovating a modest, less polluting car. We are related to, rather than alienated from, things that we make or mend. Still the occasional feeling of emptiness after driving somewhere 'for a day out'. Out of what? Still - it's quite easy to shrug off the feeling ...

3. The wisest person realises the car - especially in dreams - is a symbol. A symbol of steering our own independent course through life. Creatively unique ... or uniquely creative!

The never ending growth of consciousness.

The environmental impact of ever-increasing numbers of seemingly larger cars, and the corruption of psychological knowledge for the related advertising is plain to see.
