Rupert Sheldrake - The Science Delusion BANNED TED TALK

RE: Rupert Sheldrake - The Science Delusion BANNED TED TALK
I was reading this and found some parallels with what I think you're saying (i.e. the sickness being narcissism):

"One of the main themes running through McKenna's work, and the title of his second book, was the idea that western civilization was undergoing what he called an "archaic revival".

His notion was that western society has become "sick" and is undergoing a "healing process", in the same way that the human body begins to produce antibodies when it feels itself to be sick, humanity as a collective whole (in the Jungian, sense) was creating “strategies for overcoming the condition of dis-ease” and trying to cure itself, by what he termed as "a reversion to archaic values.” McKenna pointed to phenomena including: surrealism, abstract expressionism, body piercing and tattooing, psychedelic drug use, sexual permissiveness, jazz, experimental dance, rave culture, rock-n-roll and catastrophe theory, amongst others, as his evidence that this process was underway" WIKI
