Stages of regression

In antiquity, civilization was symbolically represented as the human body and types of civilization find their center in the different levels of the body: the head, the highest civilization, finds its center of gravity in the mind; the first regression moves from there to the chest, which corresponds to the heart or heroic age; a final regression moves from the chest to the stomach and loins, which represent nourishment and sex.
