If you’re on board with the Process Map of Consciousness, then you know that there is a constant dialog between the id, ego, and superego with regard to the psychic development (i.e., individuation) of the human being.
With that said, understand that there are forces at work in the Id. They arise from the murky depths and waylay the will power central command station (i.e. the bargaining table) and can divert you from what you want to do. So, sometimes, anger might just take control of the joystick and all you can do is watch.
But, there is data to show that the energy level can be managed, instead of subverted by the forces of the unconscious. Perhaps there is a conspiracy in the collective unconscious. I’m sorry, but that’s the best explanation for what’s going on in the world today. For cryin’ out loud, a priest’s throat was slit in France. Who are these Muslims?
My conclusion: forces in the collective unconscious, in an effort to return to the ways that got the human species to where it is today (i.e., conversion from following instincts to an intellectual assessment of the situation and going from there.), are conspiring to return Mankind to the era in which instincts won, as indeed they did, bringing us from the monkeyland of central Africa long ago, to Modern Man. Why give free will a chance? Why would Nature try that? Maybe there’s a backup plan in case it doesn’t work. Maybe let’s go back to Darwinian survival of the fittest. That’s what the dark forces want that troll in the collective unconscious. And I find that for most people the lure is too hard to resist.
