On the contrary Tara.  Both examples you gave, fashion and monster trucks, appeal to the reptilian cortex in the brain.  I have found it most amusing to learn that even after we understand the reptilian cortex is the seat of our baser desires such as fighting, sex, eating as so forth, it still works just the same.  Knowing that we have a reptilian cortex doesn’t make it go away.
