How does our world impact our brains? How are we pushed to use our brains by domination systems? And how does knowing the effects help us to find our own path and orient ourselves to true grounding? People often talk about the false self and about the shadow, but what if much of what is false and shadowed is the way that reductionism and dismissal impact us? Once we can see what patriarchy does to our brains, we can find the truth of who we are and what we stand for and make movements toward healing from colonization and reversing the effects of patriarchy on our own brains.
