There's no sharp distinction between cult and regular religion – Tara Isabella Burton | Aeon Essays

There's no sharp distinction between cult and regular religion – Tara Isabella Burton | Aeon Essays | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it
Today’s cults might be secular, or they might be theistic. But they arise from the same place of need, and from the failure of other, more ‘mainstream’ cultural institutions to fill it. If God did not exist, as Voltaire said, we would have to invent him. The same is true for cults.

Modern nationalism valorises a people’s deep, primordial relationship with land. It also depends on enemies, outsiders and foreigners to help unite the members of the nation. These claims do not have to be historically accurate to be politicall

Thus an old alchemist gave the following consolation to one of his disciples: “No matter how isolated you are and how lonely you feel, if you do your work truly and conscientiously, unknown friends will come and seek you.”

Paulette Turcotte's curator insight, June 6, 4:58 PM
In these unpredictable and possibly perilous times, many of us experience feelings of heightened anxiety, fear, and even dread. When I contemplate the committed people I know working for the well-being of the planet, for healthcare, the environment, and immigrant rights, I think of Sisyphus. The Greek hero was condemned by the Gods to do a task for eternity. Each day he struggled to roll a huge stone to the top of a mountain only to watch it roll back down on its own weight. Some see Sisyphus as the quintessential sufferer, condemned to repeating hopeless and meaningless toil.

A review of ‘The Mummy’: sex, death and inaccuracy | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it
Mummy movies play an undeniably powerful role in feeding (pre)conceptions about ancient Egypt among the general public, particularly for museum-goers. In my experience of working with school groups in the last ten years, a good deal of time was spent correcting misinformation gleaned from the swashbuckling Brendan Frasier/Rachel Weiss 1999 ‘Mummy’ franchise.

Communication with the Unconscious – Soul Spelunker

Communication with the Unconscious – Soul Spelunker | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it
One of the most successful periods in human history, at least in terms of the right hemisphere of the brain operating in its proper role as “master,” as McGilchrist calls it, was the period of Western history we know as the Renaissance. During this time, from roughly the 15th to the 17th century, what seemed to be the primary mode of Western consciousness was right-brain dominant. As we learned in the last post, the two hemispheres always work together, but one or the other will dominate. The period from the end of the Renaissance until the 20th century was ruled by left-brain consciousness. During the Renaissance, a flowering of art and culture occurred that had not been seen since ancient Greece.

Paulette Turcotte's curator insight, June 7, 1:41 PM
In conclusion, I would like to give a concrete example of the way the symbol of the fish springs out of the unconscious autochthonously. The case in question is that of a young woman who had uncommonly lively and plastic dreams. She was very much under the influence of her father, who had a materialistic outlook and was not happily married. She shut herself off from these unfavourable surroundings by developing, at a very early age, an intense inner life of her own. As a small child, she replaced her parents by two trees in the garden. In her sixth or seventh year, she dreamt that God had promised her a golden fish.
