The six apps spring from the use of the pronoun "I" and "mine" by the westerner, both framing and arming the individual to be autonomous.
Power shifts to the people due to the use of a first person pronoun (capital "I") and (mine) thus ownership on the individual and responsibility for ones' actions. Conversations with like minded individuals ensued leading to debate, reason, the scientific method, etc. "I think therefore I am, Give ME liberty or give ME death - erodes the heirarchical system - the special family, the one's decreed uniquely by god whose whims and superstitions were "sacred". Heirarchial thinking still exists (if you follow U.S. politics).
Let us look back in the history of heirarchy to Babylon/Sumeria 5000 B.C. where heirarchy was created. The tower of babel is the reference to heirarchy and it's original framing. Called cuneifrom, it's earliest from is a round elongated disk which had six unique marks. It arose as an IOU system (for noting debt). Babylonians forget god and saw themselves as the creative source, instead of an abundant God. Scarcity principle follows "this is MINE, you owe me, we must write this down!" So alphanumerical writing began as a form of billing! From this arose the notion of heirarchy - you owe ME, you are below me! Women became property, also racism, caste, slavery,etc.
The heirarchy frame, "I am above you" becomes written or encased in the
alphabet. And the "I" is reserved to the owning class. The owned has no "I" per se. Soon heirarchy marches around the mediterranean as the enslaved and ego-possessed babylonian army displaces the tribal minded peoples who were using a form of written natural images (glyphs) based on natural observable laws of fareness, humility and natural harmony - the preferred pronoun WE and collective thinking is lost. 6000 years later in 1492 Europeans claim to "own" the Americas.
Please know this, we have forgot the use of images.
The alphabet entertains the illusion of owning, images promise something more! Today, neuroscience suggests that the use of images may be the missing key to harmonious and healthy brain navigation.
