"I wrote below that pleroma - the summation of all things - could be a myth for the quantum entangled universe. I meant to say an archetype, as it is not a story per se. Before the pleroma comes the apocalypse, the unveiling and then the…"
"A myth for a quantum-entangled world could be the biblical image of the pleroma - the summation of all things. Perhaps the Hindu Akashic Record is the same thing, the idea that everything that ever was or will be or is now is somehow…"
"Kerry; the idea that came to my mind was quantum physics and especially quantum entanglement. Now of course there is a gap between what is going on down at that sub-atomic level and what is going on "up here" in the Newtonian universe. But…"
"Kerry said: "I think if we are ever to make any substantive change, it must be through a revelation in our understanding of how we are aware of our environment, a revelation of the many alternative awarenesses that might exist. "
"Ed; great question. The bible seems to talk about the Big Gestalt hypothesis that fundagelicals call the Rapture -"...in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye..." New Agers, too, talk about a Global Mind Shift (Willis…"
"Will; I see the archetype of apocalypse as both personal and societal. The personal I defined below as the end of denial - the 2X4 in the face experience. The societal is when people become aware (conscious) of how the larger…"
"Apocalypse is also a personal myth, like a fractal of its larger meaning in society. We personally experience apocalypse when our illusion or denial about something or someone is confronted in a way we cannot ignore. It is a personal…"
"Another way to define apocalypse is "unveiling". Recall the scene in Oz when Toto (instinct?) pulls aside the curtain revealing to Dorothy that Oz is just an old carnival barker. This happens when people come to see the real game…"

Please share a little about yourself by way of introduction. What draws you to Depth Psychology and what are you looking for from this community?
I have been a student of Jungian topics for over 20 years, have read much and attended many seminars. Archetypal theory has become for me a way of understanding the human realm.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
Houston Jung Center membership. I time my visits to Houston to visit my daughter's family there usually in conjunction with a seminar or speaker I want to hear at the Center. I just returned from "Jung in Israel" a trip organized by the NY Jung Center and have participated in other Jung-related trips such as the 2009 "Ancient Greece/Modern Psyche" on Santorini that Tom Singer organized. Occasionally I can get to Santa Fe for an event, but the last was the webinar for the Red Book unveiling in 2010 at Monika Wikman's ranch.
