I'm sure I've got a copy of that essay somewhere...

While my post was a bit jumbled I was referring to the distinction Jung made between the archetype and the archetype-as-such (apparently not to be confused with one another), although I guess the latter can't actually be expressed so I'm not sure what the point was. Archetypes as a kind of knowledge, or building blocks of knowledge? Even if it's only as a label of sorts.

The /Xam, a now-extinct southern San group, told of 'strings that vibrate' that filled their landscape. These were 'thinking strings', a term used by /Xam informants to describe being part of the landscape or physical environment. The /Xam told of the ringing of these strings in the sky, enabling the shaman, the ritual specialist to communicate. The significance of water and the choice of rock art imagery depicting these elements suggest a spiritual link to the landscape and the locations of particular rock art sites. This link to landscape is an essential feature of myth and ritual. The endurance of the watermeid legend suggests that the thinking strings are still 'alive' and conveys the significance of the places where the water maidens are 'seen' today.

This thread is extremely interesting to me. Especially the part about the thinking strings and how they vibrate.
It immediately made me think of dowsing and geomancy and the whole energy surrounding this practice.
There is a similarity between these thinking strings ringing or vibrating in the sky as described above and the energies that are discussed in dowsing and geomancy discussed below. Practices and beliefs done in distant ancient days are still around in many forms today and it is refreshing to read connections between the old ways and the new.

Thanks for sharing. i enjoyed this new and fresh information that was a wonderful and delightful read this morning.

Dowsing is about harnessing and amplifying natural innate senses and abilities, combined with electro-magnetic sensitivity. These are our instinctive, survival senses that we, and other animals, are using when seeking direction, food and each other. Senses which make us vulnerable to the bombardment of EMFs – tv and radio waves, phones, wifi, radiation from power lines and household appliances etc.

Dowsing-friendly scientists dub the art ­ the bio-resonance method, because our inbuilt magnetic receptors resonate with energies that we dowse. Energy levels can be monitored by dowsing and this can help us to detect problem areas both in the energy body of the Earth and in ourselves.

Archetypes are like a basic representational model or pattern of thought. They arent really knowledge but I think more like... symbolic of knowledge, if you get me: they are an abstract representation of an idea. And the association is logical, like stone being unbreakable or water being flexible, physical distance representing emotional distance...

So symbolic archetypes are like a... translation. They arent knowledge in and of themselves, unless you can speak their language!

My husband met some guy years ago that worked as a psychic and helped people find water sources for wells.
He scoffed at the man (not believing such things) and the guy went on to "prove" it to him by telling him all sorts of stuff about us and our family, especially me, which he could not have known and were all accurate.

One of the things he said was that our house was on top of a negative underground stream, that was polluted, and ran directly underneath my side of the bed. I was suffering bad migraines at the time which he spoke of and claimed were caused by this underground source. Something about the kind of electromagnetic field it created.

He claimed that if we stayed there, I would get cancer- specifically, breast cancer.

We ended up moving soon after, for his work, but the people that bought the house? The woman was diagnosed with breast cancer and died one year after moving in!

The house we have now has water moving under it, but it is clean and drinkable, and channelled into stone basins in the "caves" under the house (like cellars, used to be used for keeping animals in winter). We've had no problems here.

But it always made me wonder about this whole possible effect of underground water.

There is a river that i often cross when I go out riding, and my horse just has to stop in the middle of it and just stand there. I have come to just follow her instinct and let us stay there, while I drop the reins and meditate on her back. There are small waterfalls on either side of us there, which makes me wonder if it is ionization that creates such a lovely feeling in that spot. I don't know, but she and I can stand there forever, and enter a different state for a very long time.
