Similarly as we try to frame a consciousness adequate to our time with which we can move into the future we, following Campbell and Jung, have to harmonise with what has gone before and which, for better and worse, constitutes what we are.
My original post was merely meant to be a useful reference to those who are sifting through the 'terminal moraine of myth' mentioned by James, trying to uncover useful insights which help us move forward while connecting ever further backward to our forebearers.
Tonyd; thank you for your kind clarity and insightful offerings to these recent discussions; which speaking for myself; have been most helpful. I particularly appreciate the way in which you are able to summarize much of Joseph's thought into fewer lines while still maintaining the original integrity of his ideas. (This approach is something I need to work on.) On a side note I took up "Yang Short Form" Tai Chi for several years but have since fallen out of practice and have been meaning to start back; (another reminder to self). Please disregard my request for ideas concerning Jung from my last post unless you feel enjoyably inspired to do so.
