“The signs, it’s roles, and it’s supernatural connections” – Alcibiades and the Socratic Lover-Educator p 5
The Gods are elements/archetypes of human psyche that offer subconscious prescripts. I believe the archetypes influence our [re]incarnations between genders.
“i am a child of earth and starry heaven”
The Animus Mundi heard me and introduced me to my Anima’s. I projected some inner anima archetype (my inner Diva Hypatia) in a state of bachic frenzy while I saw my favorite female fronted punk band Tsunami Bomb. Just the week prior I was on a [synchronous] walk through downtown long beach just before midnight that made me aware of the show, it literally was a right place right time type of situation.
That night at the show I literally was trying to summon some angels. I told these gorgeous ladies (Andrea and Marissa) about Gnostic Archetypes and Hypatia. I was talking to them about Animus Mundi (and others outside before the show) as well as related posts on IG just prior to the show.
We experience the divine mind via its logos, or the concept of logos (logos loosely means speech, but that to Express a logical set of ideas) in general. Loosely translated as platonic ideas which enter our heads
If our mind is a bundle of subsystems and it can be posited that governments are semi conscious, then societies and planetary orbits exhibit similar states. Homeostatic states (exhibits an internal essence/unity), often with a nuclei (analagous to a regression model with coefficients).
Integrated information theory
“Are you, then, of the opinion that intelligence (nous) alone exists nowhere and that you by some good chance seized hold of it, while—as you think—those surpassingly large and infinitely numerous things [all the earth and water] are in such orderly condition through some senselessness?”
Peoples lives are books in the library of god (Me)
Mind orders all things
I think neoplatonism is about seeing the mind (nous) as a type of feedback loop (synchronicity) akin to normal self awareness through our own understanding of existing in nuemenal reality. I.e. we are aware of mind/nous and we see it is acting through us by bringing to us ideas and our thoughts are its and we are one and same. (Our ideas are nous’ ideas). We (selves) become aware we (us and nous) are similar and we see the eternal mind acting through us. We greet/become aware of the divine mind.
In other words, we recognize that ideas are external to us and eternal and they emerge through us via archetypes (henads/angels/seraphs what have you, basically conglomerate ideas)
The appearances are all represented internally as ideas. Once we recognize them as such, if we move past this POV that these ideas are external impressions of eternal ideas, we begin to see the divine mind working on us.
The key is the ideas are external to us.
Anaxagoras “Mind orders all thinngs”
The divine mind has a will, a logos, providence/manifest destiny. this is where I addendum neoplatonism. As in its desired expressed ideals for us as expressed via the good/henads/nous acted through us via surviving archetypes and ideals. In other words. The world soul/nous has an active spirit working on us as expressed through the ideals we set in our daily lives. I think those that are aware of the nous’ eternal nature yet active presence in the moment receive a reciprocal affect. This is the impression I get from contemplating my own life events contrasted with what I’m reading, especially w Jungian synchronicity and archetypes
I’m just a window of the divine mind. As in what I think are my thoughts are merely a mask for its thoughts. My brain is an engine utilized by the ideas. We all are.
It’s a mix and match of tabula rasa w eternal ideas. Collective unconscious is real and is innate within us but its latent, the self constructed ego on top is tabula rasa but is impressionable/instrinctly linked w these biological undertones (unconscious) that Jung was getting at (and frued), same w plato (innate forms)
Bios: Each life is a story in the nous.
Each individual idea shared across stories (experienced as deja vu and epiphanies (intuitive insights), common themes, idioms/maxims) are an example of the eternal ideas (deduplicated data or form) as stored in space/time as jungian collective unconscious/zeitgeist.
These ideas exist in us as overlapping venn diagrams. The more powerful the concept/idea, the more likely it is a henad.
Jungian archetypes ~ henads.
I actually haven’t read any Jung directly or even indirectly. I was made acquainted via the blue book of aa. I then acquired his red book and read a page and equated it w esoteric gnosticism and stopped. All I know are his ideas on archetypes and synchronicity which I believe and see in neoplatonism and everyday life (prescripts) as well as joseph Campbell motifs in stories of which I have my own scientific American evidence for. I have a story about how all stories share the same elements across continents to when the bering straight had a land bridge and another on the history of ideas (shape of ancient thought) and platos discussion in the republic about controlling myths we are exposed to and the idea behind the realm of ideas and Greek bios and daimons/proclean henads aka dionysian Angel’s or kabbalah seraphim as arche’s as well as aristotles discussion on actuality and potentiality and teleology
Interesting prototype of archetypes . Explains why both Marc Anthony and alcibiades died in drag
This dark does not mean negative but deep. A few synonyms for soulful are emotional, unfathomable, profound, fervent, heartfelt, sincere, passionate, along with meaningful, significant, eloquent, expressive, moving, stirring, sad, and mournful. An interesting definition that sums up soul is the definition of Soul Music. “Broadly speaking, soul comes from gospel (the sacred) and blues (the profane). Blues was mainly a musical style that praised the fleshly desire; whereas, gospel was more oriented toward spiritual inspiration.
This is the death and rebirth cycle: dark into light, light into dark or the alchemical turning of the Grape into wine that is personified here. One gets to cycle between all aspects of soul with its natural rhythms.
Take a moment to sit with this: “My lips got lost on the way.” Rumi is talking about divine direction. One frequently has a mark set within the conscious mind, and in this poem the mark was the “lips,” although he was lucky in that instead he “connected with the most tender part of her,” the soul. He goes on to cite a known simile for the soul, the moon. And in true form to the soul, what “a wild looking baby” they will have! This is talking about the deep plumbing of one’s depths that will produce an outcome that is beyond the abilities of the rational mind. The Grape has often called women and men to step out of their ordinary lives and to revel in nature, support the divine feminine, and to discover an ecstatic element in themselves. In short, the Grape serves as a “priestess,” and initiates woman and men to the experience of Soul or the Great Goddess embodied in us all.
I am a huge believer in archetypal psychology and I believe archetypes are the henads of Dionysius (angels/seraphs). My theory is that archetypes are anthropological psychological auto-trophies/tropes that work well together to better the species and exist in a collective unconscious (space/time as memory store via bios of past lives)
Where do these archetypes come from then? The collective unconscious, Jung believed, was where these archetypes exist. He suggested that these models are innate, universal, and hereditary. Archetypes are unlearned and function to organize how we experience certain things.
“All the most powerful ideas in history go back to archetypes,” Jung explained in his book The Structure of the Psyche.
Jung rejected the concept of tabula rasa or the notion that the human mind is a blank slate at birth to be written on solely by experience. He believed that the human mind retains fundamental, unconscious, biological aspects of our ancestors. These ‘primordial images,’ as he initially dubbed them, serve as a basic foundation of how to be human.
These archaic and mythic characters that make up the archetypes reside with all people from all over the world, Jung believed, at it is these archetypes that symbolize basic human motivations, values, and personalities. He believed that each archetype played a role in personality, but felt that most people were dominated by one specific archetype. The actual way in which an archetype is expressed or realized depends upon a number of factors including an individual’s cultural influences and unique personal experiences.
Four Types contrasted with Plato’s Triparate Soul
Persona (Ego/ID) – This is where the 10 jungian archetypes surface. Also the crossover with Freud. These chosen archetypes influence the prescripts for shadow, self, and anima
The Anima or Animus (Emotive)
The anima is a feminine image in the male psyche, and the animus is a male image in the female psyche. The anima/animus represents the “true self” rather than the image we present to others and serves as the primary source of communication with the collective unconscious.
