Humans have something called a collective memory.
What the heck is this?
Many animals can learn.
Either organically, or be deliberately trained.
But humans can learn from our own memories.
And those memories can be completely artificial.
Some guys come back with some weird looking, but very tasty animal.
And he explains how he tracked it, hunted it and killed it.
So long as that guy is articulate enough, all the other cave people will have THAT idea in their mind.
So that one idea in his mind, from experience, is now in everybody else’s brain, WITHOUT any experience.
One way to keep that “collective” memory alive is by “storytelling.”
Maybe when they hear the original hunter tell the story it reminds them of how DELICIOUS it was to eat.
Only Need One Event
So five or ten years later, when one of those cave people see evidence of that delicious animal, so long a that “story” of how to track it and kill it is fresh in his mind, he’ll use that imagination as an instruction.
And if he finds it and kills it, now he can add to the “collective memory” with his unique experience.
This is something anthropologists recognize as a very, very useful instinct that we humans have.
So long as this collective memory is kept alive by various campfire stories it can grow to vast sizes.
But this goes even deeper.
Some of those stories are not about hunting or any other “how to.”
They are metaphorical, inspirational, and “how to” on a much more emotional level.
The “how to” hunting stories are real and tangible.
The “how to” motivational stories are filled with archetypes.
Heroes and monsters.
How are these stories “how to”?
The instructional, realistic how to stories talk about what kind of footprints to look for, etc.
These metaphorical, archetype filled stories are “how to” but from an emotional standpoint.
And they are much more subconscious.
They are much more hypnotic.
To create the right collection of EMOTIONS when hunting much bigger animals.
If a young caveman’s head is filled with stories about archetype heroes killing archetype monsters, that will help him kill BIG animals.
To imagine he has help, and support and encouragement from this “imaginary” archetypes.
Where Do They Exist
Now an even deeper idea.
A much more “hypnotic idea.”
These archetype stories are likely told across many generations.
So, how would a young kid feel, hearing these archetype stories, being told by the elders, who said they heard them from their parents?
And then later, when those kids were grown, they told them to their kids.
It’s hard to imagine this today.
We have science, and writing, and movies and the internet.
But back then, all they had were spoken words and their memories.
So, where, specifically, would they imagine those archetypes were?
Would they be consciously aware they were just stories?
Or would they imagine they lived on a much higher plane of existence?
Where all the gods lived?
Suppose you could get into a state where the stories you told to others were FROM this higher plane?
The memory-metaphorical-metaphysical plane where ALL stories live.
What would THAT do for your social skill and communication skills?
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
