The Kernel: This video, Part 4 of Veils, Habit (Symbolic) introduces the Shadow side of Ontological Security that shares the same underpinnings as for Social/ Economic/ Ecological Injustices via the Construction of Self. Part 4 looks at Regression that makes up the shadow side of Ontological Security as we engage with the world and its disturbances in a way that leaves us intact.
Part 4 is the last part of a 4-part series of the symbolic aspect of our Veils required to bury the harm produced from pursuing our Calories and Energy so as to be Ontologically Secured. It specifically goes into Car-Use so as to see how we symbolically get attached to this habit as ways to ground ourselves in this world.
This video is part of The Climate Playbook series that is designed to reveal the hidden workings of Climate Inaction.
