Why Do We Need Religion: Alone-ness, and therefore Mindfulness

WHY DO WE NEED RELIGION: ALONENESS: MINDFULNESS.
As far as I know, aloneness, or what marx called disenfranchisement, or what I call distance from the pack, is where religion fills the hole in us.

that’s level one: eliminating aloneness thru mindfulness.
level two is a common mythos (strategy).
level three is festival, holiday, ritual. (equality) reinforcing strategy.
level four is norm and law. (limits.)
We need these things.
But of them the one thing that defeats aloneness is what we loosely categorize as religion, but is better described as mindfulness.

Mindfulness is necessary because of consciousness.

  1. You’ve just said, Consciousness is necessary because of consciousness.

    And: a God shaped hole is filled by God.

    Deep.
