Since we're still here anyway... I have been working on a project about Carl Jung, revolving around his ideas about the 'collective unconscious'. A knowledge system shared by all people, unaware. Joseph Campbell's ideas about 'the hero's journey' were derived from this, as the collective unconsciousness is postulated to bring forth the archetypes that accompany the hero on its journey (the wise old man, the shadow, the anima). The collective unconscious bra All very fascinating, but... is it true? Do we share unconscious archetypes, and have we been doing so since forever?
