Immanuel Velikovsky believed that humanity as a whole had been so thoroughly traumatized by the succession of these events that modern man’s overall disposition was that of a mental patient who had no recollection of what had happened, but who behaved irrationally and even self-destructively in the process of repeatedly “acting out” or re-creating those traumatic events.((“Catastrophism and Collective Amnesia”. http://kennysideshow.blogspot.com/2011/03/catastrophism-and-collective-amnesia.html))
