Is The Collective Consciousness Real Or Not?
Firstly do you think if something bad happens in the world we all feel it? Let’s talk about it in Collective-Consciousness-Real-Or-Not-Bob Davis Podcast 1074.
Conscious Versus Unconscious
Most importantly Carl Jung discovered something he called the Collective UNCONSCIOUS in the early 20th century.
One Hundred Year Debate
That is to say people have been debating the inner workings of the mind since Jung’s ground breaking discovery.
What Is The Collective Unconscious?
But what’s significant now are proliferating ideas about what the collective unconscious is and exactly what it does. Not to mention the idea that somehow it meant a collective CONSCIOUSNESS which it did not.
Or what he ‘meant’.
And many incorrect or blatantly false quotes attributed to Jung.
However there’s no substitute for actually reading Jung.
Psychology Of The Unconscious
Let’s Say You’ve Been Isolated
Furthermore someone isolated for a few weeks somewhere is unlikely to be aware of anything happens outside of his surroundings despite the so called Collective Consciousness.
In short The Collective Unconscious was never a psychic Internet.
And never intended to be taken as such.
Making A Buck With Fairy Tales
Yet a lot of people are making a buck telling people the collective consciousness is in fact a human version of the Internet.
Finally the reader might wonder why this is important.
Because of the so called collective we believe things that have never been proven.
Universal To Humanity
To sum up Carl Jung discovered what might be referred to as a universal human operating system.
Access Is Limited
However by definition we don’t have conscious access to it.
And I am not sure we want to.
In conclusion we’re living through extraordinary and difficult times.
Thinking Clearly Required
Above all we need to be able to think clearly.
