Howdy partner,

My posts below should make clear why your examples don't really touch on my point. I would also seriously question the veracity of your proposed examples. Moreover, even if they were true, the phenomenon of innate behaviors hardly entails a "collective unconsciousness." (E.g., pups instinctively know, and know how to, seek the mother's teet; I don't think recourse to a "collective unconsciousness" is necessary or even helpful in explaining this sort of phenomenon.)

But that is all a side issue. The main point is this: By physical means we can suppress individual consciousness. This simple fact demonstrates that individual consciousness is not something separate and independent of physical reality.
