Question: Does the phenomenon of collective consciousness exist in the material world?
Answer: The fact is that the whole world has collective consciousness. But Kabbalists ascend from it. It is the Kabbalists who lose the commonality of consciousness with the others who inhabit this world because they want to rise above the collective egoistic consciousness and enter into another kind of consciousness.
The collective form of consciousness is given to all who live in this world because they all feed on the upper mind. This is natural. After all, what is our brain?—only an adapter to the upper consciousness. No more than that. Nothing happens in it. It is a huge system that connects us to what is happening above us.
