We’re looking at the new TV show the Good Doctor as an extended metaphor for being outside of culture, or not having an enculturated Ego. The Good Doctor, since he has no Ego filter, no conflict with reality, is able to tap into the medical potential field to enable him to perform surgical miracles. (Perhaps Ben Carson was an idiot savant, until the got a an ego and wanted to be a savior).
Bot secular and religious culture seeks the authentic man, the natural man, the Son of Man, the free man, the western man, the Mac Man, the whole man, the Forest Gump man, the Action man, the super man, the original man, the savior man. Even Trump sold himself as the true man, and people bought his product because we are so hungry for the role model that will activate our potential that has been blocked by the tape loop of culture.
Disconnected from our True Self, we tape loop in culture like a fetus unable to get born. Floating anxiety grows as we know there is a birth canal but we can’t find it. There are two Cherubim guarding the gate. Anxiety grows and we try to release it by pointing out the latest single cause for the anxiety, that has no single cause. We try demonizing the cause—the immigrants, the terrorist, the blacks, the gays, and so the demons keep changing forms—but we cannot find the cause because we are the cause, we who have been indoctrinated since birth into culture as a artificial knowledge field whose only intent so self survival. Whatever happens in this field is to support and maintain the field. The colony will survive with any means. Culture has no morality.
There are a few traditions paths out of culture. They are called the pathless paths or the dateless gates. Buddhism, Zen and the non-dual traditions are all Exit Signs to the Womb of Culture. Those who feel the anxiety most intensely are going to become yogis or mass shooters. To be born again is to be born out of culture, yet unlike the infant, the yogi (to make that a general term for a being who intentionally want to be reborn outside of culture womb) is a creative act, not a passive one. The yogi participates and activate his birth by finding the role models from beings you are outside of culture and transmitting back into culture as culture. It is only by using the language of culture can we find the opening to the womb. The language of culture that liberates us from culture is the language of metaphor, myth and art.
