Dorothy Soelle in her early text Christ the Representative focused on identity, which she saw as bound up with authority. There are also hierarchies with people in positions of authority, which produce strong infantilizing tendencies within the system. The earth and all non-human life have systematically been raped and pillaged in the interests of an aggressive individualism completely disconnected from its adjoined polarity of community. Community building is not a heroic journey; it is the story of women in many cultures and of the poor in most cultures and is often devalued and uncertain in having no returns in financial terms. Cultures have a greater degree of diversity within their cosmology which enables a greater degree of multiplicity within the self. Spirit possession and shamanistic cults have this because of the belief in a number of spirits which can possess the self.
