You know it's coming. Psychotherapy and most all psychology doesn't touch the toes of a true theory of mind, because a theory of mind has to also be a theory of reality. And I'm working with a pretty good one and it's awesome. It's just an observation of an EXTRAORDINARY case and a lot of people have looked into it and some have even come up with interesting insights, like the one you had; the relation between abstract thought in solving complex systems and schizophrenia. I mean, that one is a no-brainer, but it is the tip of an iceberg into some features of the mind. The nature/nurture debate is the very definition of stagnation, but I digress. Primacy is of the mind and the civilization you and I experience are a product of minds. We have faulty systems like the ones forementioned because faulty minds created them. I assume this is self evident, don't think its anything new, people already know the world leaders are insane and savages.
