A bronze mask of the Greek god Pan believed to be some 2,000 years old was discovered by University of Haifa archaeologists recently near Lake Kinneret in the Galilee. According to the archaeologists, the mask is unlike any other discovered before due to its great size - larger than a human head. The mask was discovered at the Susita archaeological dig site, which was formerly the site of the pagan Roman city of Antiochia Hippos. Hippos, one of the Decapolis, was the major polis east of the Sea of Galilee, set upon Susita Mountain crest and overlooking the Jewish city of Tiberias on the western side of the lake. The figure depicted in the mask has small horns hidden between locks of hair, which led the archaeologists to understand that the mask was of Pan, the god of shepherds, who is half man and half goat. He also is the god of music and enjoyment. After further cleaning of the mask, the archaeologists found further goat-like characteristics in the mask, cementing the initial diagnosis that the mask was meant to depict Pan. The mask was found at a spot believed to be outside of the main city of Hippos, however, the archaeologists also found signs of a large basalt structure from the Roman period having been situated in the area. The placement of the structure and the mask, well outside of the city, but close to the road into the city, suggests that the site may have housed an altar to Pan, the archaeologists believe. Animal sacrifices to Pan would have been carried out, not only in the holy places in the city, but outside in nature and in caves. Such an outdoor altar to Pan had previously been found north of Susita.

"Each life is formed by its unique image, an image that is the essence of that life and calls it to a destiny. As the force of fate, this image acts as a personal daimon, an accompanying guide who remembers your calling." (James Hillman)

C. G. Jung and Erich Neumann first met in 1933, at a seminar Jung was conducting in Berlin. Jung was fifty-seven years old and internationally acclaimed for his own brand of psychotherapy. Neumann, twenty-eight. He had, in fact, not yet begun his training in psychotherapy. The two men struck up a correspondence that would continue until Neumann's death in 1960. A lifelong Zionist, Neumann fled Nazi Germany with his family and settled in Palestine in 1934, where he would become the founding father of analytical psychology in the future state of Israel.

In 1933 Jung not only travelled to Palestine/Israel, it is also the year Jung and Erich Neumann met for the first time at a seminar in Berlin. The same year Jung is appointed professor at ETH Zurich, and the Eranos conferences in Ascona, Switzerland, started. With the publication of “Modern Man in Search of a Soul” his works become widely popularized in the Anglo-Saxon world, while Jung on the backdrop of the national-socialist grip to power in Germany as a neutral Swiss is asked to become president of the General Medical Society for Psychotherapy, which led to much controversy.

Late in his career, Carl Jung expanded his thinking on the nature of the archetypes. In the passage above, he begins to present this new angle. The images and ideas that arise in our conscious minds are only approximate representations of the archetypes from which they flow. The archetypes, in themselves, cannot be known by the conscious mind. This is the psychoid nature of the archetypes. Jung regarded the psychoid archetype as non-psychic and transcendent. He used the analogy of the electromagnetic spectrum to illustrate the difference between the psychoid archetype, as such, and its effects. He analogically places the psychoid archetype in the “invisible, ultraviolet end of the psychic spectrum.” Its effects, images and ideas, he placed in the visible spectrum, or in the conscious mind as approximations. Thus, things of the psyche can never be quantified using mathematics. According to Jung, “we have no measuring rod with which to measure psychic quantities” and “there is no hope that the validity of any statement about unconscious states or processes will ever be verified scientifically.”
In this lecture, we shall try to see how, from early childhood and at different stages of his life and work, Jung’s encounters with the arts gave sustenance to the way he lived and thought about relationships to the unconscious. Read more
