The Challenge of Consciousness

The Challenge of Consciousness | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it
Riccardo Manzotti: For most people “consciousness” will have various meanings and include awareness, self-awareness, thinking in language. But for philosophers and neuroscientists the crucial meaning is that of feeling something, having a feeling you might say, or an experience. It’s all very problematic. The truth is that we do not know what consciousness is. That’s why we’re talking about it as a problem.
Laura M. Smith's insight:
The idea of consciousness as the experience of feeling fits so well with how dream attempt to bring us into consciousness or awareness of what it true and what is not true...through the feeling function.

MIND over MATTER: 10 Ancient legends about dreams

MIND over MATTER: 10 Ancient legends about dreams | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it
Dreams have always been one of the prevailing enigmas of humanity. As early as 5,000 B.C., Mesopotamians made a habit of recording their dreams on clay tablets, and every culture in the world has their own interpretation of the realm that lies between wakefulness and sleep. In some legends, dreams are sent from the gods; in others, terrifying monsters lurk at the fringes of consciousness, waiting for their chance to creep into the shadows of our minds. These 10 legends encompass the dreams and nightmares of various cultures scattered across 7,000 years of human history.
Laura M. Smith's insight:
Divining from our dreams fell out of favor in modern times, but they are a natural part of the fabric of the cosmos, weaving the stories that carry a wisdom for our souls.

The Unique Worldview and Dream Life of the Amazon’s Achuar People

The Unique Worldview and Dream Life of the Amazon’s Achuar People | Archetypes-Dreamwork-Spirituality | Scoop.it
On a nightly basis during dreaming, and also during visions, the soul departs the body and enters a multiverse where anything is possible and anything can be learned.
Laura M. Smith's insight:
Each day the Achuar rise somewhere between 3 and 4 a.m., gathering in family units around a communal fire. There they consume a special wayús tea, guzzling three or four gourds’ worth of the warm liquid and then promptly vomiting it up. This is done as a kind of purge intended to cleanse a person of any negative energy. It also provides focus for the critical interpretation phase of the ritual, which comes as they take turns telling each other what they remember of their dreams. The Achuar believe that dreams contain fragments of important messages from spirit elders or the powerful spirit of the rainforest known as the “Arutam” that sometimes manifests as a panther or boa.
