Hi, I'm intrested in the Jung's theory, specially in the synchronicity concept, and I don't know the best place (in all the world)...
Can you tell me about it?
I've heard the zurick would be the best place to
study.Synchronicity is an explanatory principle, according to its creator, Carl Jung. Synchronicity explains "meaningful coincidences," such as a beetle flying into his room while a patient was describing a dream about a scarab. The scarab is an Egyptian symbol of rebirth, he noted. Therefore, the propitious moment of the flying beetle indicated that the transcendental meaning of both the scarab in the dream and the insect in the room was that the patient needed to be liberated from her excessive rationalism. His notion of synchronicity is that there is an acausal principle that links events having a similar meaning by their coincidence in time rather than sequentially. He claimed that there is a synchrony between the mind and the phenomenal world of perception
Ok so I've read that being chased in my dream means I'm running away from something in real life whether it's stress, day-to-day problems, etc. I also read that my pursuer is supposed to be some sort of negative aspects of myself being personified as this "shadow" I suppose that constantly lingers over me. Alright well why am I getting chased my zombies, angry mobs, a t-rex, those scarabs from The Mummy, and lastly, the pizza delivery man.
Ever since I started listening to metal three years ago i've gotten to learn some of the many genres , the history of metal, some of it's influences and even played the guitar.
I want you, metal heads of the world, to list for me as MANY genres of REAL METAL (meaning "nu-metal" is a no-go) that you know as well as 2+ bands that you like from that genre.
Thanks friends, keep brutal \m/
Example: Who likes Carl Gustav Jung?
I think he is the coolest.
It seems to me like there's a division between the Freudian and Jungian schools of thought. I think they coexist mostly, but when they both explain the same thing, I'm definitely partial to Jung almost all of the time.
However, Jung's theories frustrate me. By their very nature, because of their subject matter, they do not lend themselves to logical, verbal explanation. It's very esoteric and very like the Tao. I understand what he means, I think, largely through intuition and reminders of my own experience; but explaining his ideas to skeptics is nearly impossible.
So my question is kind of a challenge. If you believe in the collective unconscious, synchronicity, and/or the ideas that go along with these, then why? What allows you to believe in this far-fetched stuff? Plain suspicion? Experience? His research? Does it "just make sense?" For me, it's all of the above. I've always been rather intuitive and the more I study Jung the more impressed I am at his genius ability to test all the things I've always wondered about.
