People since ever with rare exceptions, tend to gather in couple relations, to form families, to work for them no matter if the planet will blow up due to their jobs. Societies have not had great humans but there was Dr Albert Schweitzer, Dr Wilhelm Reich, Viktor Schauberger, Newton, Tesla, Nietszche, Jesus Christ as brilliant minds and some others mainly men. Some had families but most of their time was for humans,most of them was murdered by humans like Giordano Bruno.
There is in our days, social emulation and the death drive which is like a runner against his own fear of death, to be fit in body but the body therapists tend not to use reflexion but mind techniques to combat stress of all kinds. No one had felt those men. I think that people never heard or understood themselves because they bodies with their brain do not fit.
