Jeremy Lent’s ‘The Patterning Instinct’ is a remarkable book that joins the dots between cultural history and neuroscience, arguing that our current crisis of unsustainability is not an inevitable result of human nature, but is culturally driven: a product of particular mental patterns that we have inherited from previous generations that reinforce themselves in a feedback loop.

Since these values are not hard-wired into our genetic make-up we have the ability to change them and alter our current path.
