Archetypes
« on: December 29, 2010, 04:15:38 AM »
Thought it might be rather a nice idea to condense together some historical/religious archetypes that undermine religious textual authority, taking inspiration from James George Frazer's work The Golden Bough.  For example, the stiking similarities between Christ/Bacchus/Dionysus/Mithras, and how different religious systems can worship the same archetype in differing ethical frameworks.  The same themes and characters keep appearing throughout myth and religion; so is religion merely the action of a particularly mischevious part of the subconscious?

(Any experts in Carl Gustav Jung are welcome here!)
