All in Abstract

The Great Mother: A Write Up of a Chapter Read in 'The Origins and History of Consciousness' by Erich Neumann

“In the adolescent stage of the ego the conscious and unconscious duality and the relation between them is played out and dramatised in the myth of the mother and son as lovers. Once again the evil mother is at play here, coming forth in the guise of a masked trickster using false sweetness to lure the son/ego to his own destruction for the Great Mother's own end.”

Do You Think?

“Have you ever actually, genuinely sat in a room, a silent room, with no distractions and fully contemplated the reality of your pending mortality? To consider what it means that you actually are definitely going to die one day. Tomorrow perhaps. Because I have. And to do that is to reconcile with the fact that not only are you limited and incredibly fleeting, you are also ignorant in almost every way possible.”

Traversing the Multiverse

“We all have a plethora of metaphysical universes that are stacked atop of one another. And when you make a positive, active decision to better yourself, you are actually throwing a proverbial grappling hook into these different universes and begin to hoist yourself into them.”

Human Smart. Tree Dumb.

"I have often toyed around with the idea that plants are the highest form of life. The most spiritually awakened, and the final form which a soul takes before merging with the godhead. If you have ever observed a tree on mushrooms or acid, you will probably have an inkling as to what I mean."

What is Love?

"It's all part of the charming process of growing up, of blindly fumbling through the experience of having chemical war waged within us as our hormones loudly and proudly proclaim that we are in fact as wise and knowledgeable in life as any of our adult peers."

Manifestations of Dimensional Abstracts

"It's as Galileo allegedly said "Mathematics is the language in which God has written the universe". And I've only ever been good at one language. Unsurprising then that I much prefer thinking about hypotheticals, potentials, completely abstract idea's that serve as the foundation for the most unorthodox thought experiments."
