An Interview with James Hillman on The Soul's Code

An Interview with James Hillman on The Soul's Code | UnspeakableThingsFinallySpoken.com - Curated Links | Scoop.it

Personal Transformation: Your best-selling book, "The Soul's Code," not only introduces, but documents, through fascinating anecdotal stories, the idea that a unique, formed soul is within us from birth, shaping us as much as it is shaped. While this is not a new myth, the possibility that we are fated, or called into life with a uniqueness that asks to be lived, is rejected by our culture. This myth is described as the acorn theory. Let's begin with a discussion of the acorn theory.

 

James Hillman: It is a worldwide myth in which each person comes into the world with something to do and to be. The myth says we enter the world with a calling. Plato, in his Myth of Er, called this our paradeigma, meaning a basic form that encompasses our entire destinies. This accompanying image shadowing our lives is our bearer of fate and fortune. The acorn theory expresses that unique something that we...

David Anderson: Your brain is more than a bag of chemicals | Video on TED.com

Modern psychiatric drugs treat the chemistry of the whole brain, but neurobiologist David Anderson believes in a more nuanced view of how the brain functions.
Lisa Hyaenidae's insight:

"Modern psychiatric drugs treat the chemistry of the whole brain, but neurobiologist David Anderson believes in a more nuanced view of how the brain functions. He illuminates new research that could lead to targeted psychiatric medications -- that work better and avoid side effects. How's he doing it? For a start, by making a bunch of fruit flies angry. (Filmed at TEDxCaltech.)"

Depth Insights » The Rock Star and the Transcendent: Archetypal Paradox and Tension in Consumerist Mythology  ~ by Jordan Shapiro | UnspeakableThingsFinallySpoken.com - Curated Links | Scoop.it
Lisa Hyaenidae's insight:

final 2 paragraphs

 

We can turn to the image of the rock and roll iconoclast: that brooding, suffering, romantic troubadour. No matter how he styles his hair- and during whichever decade he appears- he lives the myth of deaf Ludwig van Beethoven banished to liminal space. He is cursed to create music he can never hear. To him everything is suspect. Nothing can be trusted, not even himself. The surface always lies and shadow is his dwelling. He cannot suspend disbelief because he is the illusion. He intuits the other side and seeks to unveil it, exposing himself in the process. What seems good is actually bad. What seems bad is actually good. This is the punk rock dissident’s gift. It allows, encourages and requires that he maintain an acute capacity for forgiveness and doubt. Because when nothing is firm, and everything bends- when black can be molded into white, yes into no, and right into wrong- judgment is necessarily suspended.

Surely someone has written a song about it.
