Although consciousness level 400 is reached by eight percent of the world's population, and educated, literate, intelligent people in modern, advanced societies consider intelligence and education to be the 'norm', that is obviously not the case for the majority of mankind for whom reason and logic play a minor role in the motivations of everyday life.
