I find some people truly fascinating. The other day when i did my own time research i happened to stumble upon the Jungian metaphysical world of
perception. This isnt the first time i came across his world, but i never really dived into it, mostly because most of his theories are subjective,
metaphysical and are trying to transcend the human race into something it can never become, well "I" dont think we can transcend into a divine
His world is not dogma, its not universal ( Well, depends in which universe your mind is in ) its a philosophical statement of who we once were and
the hope of what we could become. The unconscious mind and the conscious mind and their battle for a bipedal body, with two eyes to see, two ears to

What people might not know is that Jung was a pupil of Sigmund Freud the father of psychoanalysis. Jung had every opportunity for ground breaking

concept of a soul, slaughtering animals to provide for a population of 7,5 billion humans? Even Jung despite of his words, separated himself to
something bigger just to enjoy that lovely steak.
The reason i never jumped down in Jungs world is because he was a man with a grand delusion who had a talent to write philosophy.
