When I was a teenager I was very interested in Jung. I was impressed by the idea that I would sometimes see archetypes manifest in the people around me, that at times the individual almost seemed to be irrelevant; a social situation would play itself out in front of me and it was as though it was a scene from mythology, an eternal struggle made manifest in miniature, and if I had only the wit to see it, I could learn a great deal seeing through the manifestation to the essence.
The Gods walk amongst us, manifest. They are not dead, they hide in plain sight.
It is time finally for me to write about some of those thoughts.
