Thanks for the article and link.
This topic is the foundation of understanding human nature and by extension, society. It is Orwell's 1984. Those in the first world have detached themselves from reality, a byproduct of alienation from the physically mundane. Man is a physical creature. His internal world is meant to be in concert with the real world that surrounds him. Society is guided by those who have no connection with reality. It goes far beyond gender identification. People have become voyeurs of the world, through occupations that have no connection with reality, mass media and technology, and little connection with local community. We've exchanged being coal miners working 16 hour days for smart phones and xanax.
