It is an interesting parallel. I was concerned that the literal translation would sound harsh but on the other hand this is what he said. It seems that for Missios, mutants would be those that have lost entirely the ability to introspect and perhaps are so circumspect to leave the consumption paradigm that are essentially irretrievably lost from a true human experience.

Our culture is such that 'a true human experience' is, for most people, the rare exception rather than the rule. That is the essence of the message from before "Know thyself" was carved in stone to admonitions such as "Be here now". We should all be so gifted as to have true human experiences on a regular basis. It would become addictive. But that can be a problem as it can be and is perverted so regularly.
