Jung’s Theory of the Self & Collective Shadow Projection

Let’s talk about Carl Jung’s theory of the Self, which is concerned with the microcosm, and explore how it might correspond to the collective manifestation in the macrocosm. I see the current makeup of the West, especially the dominant polarized swing into identity politics, as evidenced by radical anti-male sentiment, anti-white sentiment, and anti-straight sentiment that’s manifested in the West a collective shadow, as well as much confusion about the […] Read more »

How To Become Whole (Carl Jung & The Individuation Process)

The main struggle in our time is not capitalism vs socialism, but rather decentralization vs centralization; put another way, individualism vs collectivism, as the individual is the smallest unit of decentralization.

Placing one’s conscious focus on the unconscious shadow aspect of Self, for the […] Read more »

The Two Types of “Persons”

According to Blacks Law Dictionary, 2nd Edition, 1910, there are two types of “persons”, artificial and natural. Those who identify with an ideology, aka an ideologue, are an artificial person, and those who have done the self-reflection and inner work necessary to emancipate themselves from unnatural ideologies and systems are natural persons.

The All Seeing Eye, and How to Defeat It

This was an article that Aline and I wrote back in October of 2014 on our Scribd page, but I wanted to post it here again, because it is still pertinent, especially in regards to envy.  The “All Seeing Eye” is above all envious of beauty, and devours it thinking that it will make itself happy, abundant, and fulfilled. “Nothing is more valuable to the evil one than his eye, […] Read more »

Carl Jung, the Shadow, and the Dangers of Psychological Projection

“The sad truth is that man’s real life consists of a complex of inexorable opposites—day and night, birth and death, happiness and misery, good and evil. We are not even sure that one will prevail over the other, that good will overcome evil, or joy defeat pain. Life is a battleground. It always has been, and always will be.” (Carl Jung, Approaching the Unconscious) “Of the many metaphors used to […] Read more »

How Mob Mentality Gets Worse Online

This is a great video that describes the psychology of the herd/mob.  Nietzsche went to great lengths about the matter, as well as many great psychologists, including Carl Jung, who detailed the need to individuate (psychologically differentiate) oneself from out of the herd/mob, in order to become a unique and whole individual. What Jung called “Selfhood”, is what we as gray mystics would term reaching the “Divine Union” and the “Alchemical […] Read more »
