When the temporal areas of the brain are stimulated electrically, a conscious patient may ' dream dreams ' and ' see visions.' Injury or disease in these areas may call up hallucinations or bring a strange conviction that all that is now happening has happened before. Changes in personality may also occur, and there is evidence that aggressive and violent behaviour is often linked with abnormal brain rhythms in these areas.

Eight lectures by the Rev. V. A. Demant , Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology and Canon of Christ Church, Oxford
7-A Vicissitude of Civilisation
The transition from market to controlled economy is not merely a change in economic and political systems. It represents also one of the ups and downs of civilisation. The decline of capitalism must therefore be considered as a vicissitude of civilisation. It is only partly true to say that capitalist society was opposed to and succeeded feudal society. The culture accompanying capitalism contained elements of an older economy. To this economy of a tribal society both capitalism and feudalism are opposed. The more radical change had already taken place when tribal conditions gave place to city and agrarian society. This raises the question as to whether we are returning to tribal conditions.
