In Topic: Carl Jung- Archetypes of Collective Unconscious.

      Pretty interesting psychological theory this guy laid out there long ago.  He basically describes that laying beneath the surface of the conscious and sub-conscious mind there exist another conscious that's composed collectively with everyone past or present.  He describes it as the collective unconscious. 


Analysis of his Theory:


     He contends that at birth, a newborn's mind is solely under the power of the collective unconscious and as the child gains more experience the collective unconscious begins to recess as the (sub)conscious form stronger.  He goes on to say that since children are more influenced by the collective unconscious mind it results in children being highly imaginative.  He says that the collective unconscious becomes more prevalent when a person is dreaming. He adds that while sleeping our (sub)conscious is more at rest allowing the collective unconscious to be more at the forefront.  So dreaming in essence is a hyper collaborative effort utilizing all three consciences. 


     He goes on to say that at birth that not only are the basic survival instincts  instilled, but also an instinctual idealism and perspective nature of the child.  Each set of ideals a child is born with is called an Archetype.  So for instance, a young child might already have an opinion on how his mother and father should treat him even before he should know how a parent is supposed to behave in society. How a mother (or father) treats their child creates certain emotional responses within the child based on the child's collective unconscious. This conscious battleground and how he copes is more specifically what an Archetype is described as.  Another archetype would be the voice we use inside our head to talk to ourselves about how we can improve and become a better people. The Ego, he contends, is what forms as a coping mechanism to close the gap between our ideals gathered in the collective unconscious and the contradictory information given to us through our experience. He says that healing is what takes place when we begin to closer merge the collective unconscious with the (sub)conscious.



     The implications of this theory is pretty astounding.  To think that collectively we all share part of our minds.  It also has huge implications in the field of sociology.   Just curious if any of you have read this guys stuff and what you think about it.



Stay classy huddle.


Haven't looked into Jung specifically, but I am very familiar with this concept. I'd like to think through my intuition and personal experience, this is the case. It just makes sense.
