Answer: It is a search! In no way do I disregard it! Humanity is in constant search, and these deviations from the straight path are necessary like for a missile that is flying to its target: It needs to deflect to pinpoint its exact path.
That is why I believe that there is a place for all methods and practices that have emerged in the middle of the last century. They have led to the point that today, a person is at a complete dead end. Otherwise, he would have hoped for something. So all these techniques, philosophies, New Age, and various sects have done their work.
