Human beings as social creatures are immersed in a mental environment of other people's thoughts, including all the books that have ever been read. In this mental environment there are inaccuracies, or "mind pollution," created mainly by social pressures.
This is the first and only book of its kind, introducing the mental environment and mind pollution, and making these things into "a subject." It goes much deeper than the obvious pollution of advertising and political propaganda, into the internalized social influences of family, peers, religion, and education.
It explains how the high status of physical science has steered psychologists away from the study of the mind, and presents a view of the mind with the "mental senses." It describes ingredients of
mind pollution — "unscientific methods," misrepresentation,
manipulation, mental warfare, bad logic, psychological problems, sorcery, domination, and status. It presents the perspective of a new civilization, and from that perspective points out inaccuracies in major belief systems of the present culture — the religious, the academic, and the New Age.
