Archetypes and synchronicity
I am quoting from Synchronicity: Nature & Psyche in an Interconnected Universe, by Joseph Cambray. I turn to page 34, in fascination for his notes on the interconnection of archetypes and synchronicity:
"The archetypes of the collective unconscious are...an essential feature of Jung's model of the psyche. Virtual, empty forms in themselves, they're imagined as structuring all psychic life; when constellated, as through a matching of environmental and internal cues, they tend to manifest in archetypal imagery. They are psychosomatic entities linking body and mind. Taken together they form a highly interconnected polycentric network. Each archetype has numinous potential, and polytheistic cultures are seen to give expression to archetypal diversity. Gods are metaphors of archetypal behaviors and myths are archetypal enactments."
