Carl Jung’s “dead”

July 13, 2012

Carl Jung wrote about how we are the dead, the un-waked-up to our full consciousness.  I don’t know or remember whether he goes further to suggest that we build on earth, collectively and individually, heaven or hell, but I think we have that reversed, too, that we do build them here (rather than encounter them elsewhere).

The other myth I think we’ve got mixed up is that of Icarus.  I don’t think it was a human who flew too close to the sun, I think it was a dinosaur bird in flight when that meteor came crashing down like a ball of fire — like the sun falling to earth — and killed the bird, as its relative watched helplessly from a distance.
