Jung, Synchronicity, and Its Implications

Jung, Synchronicity, and Its Implications | The Search for It | Scoop.it

From the article: "For Jung space and time are only apparently the properties of bodies in motion, and are essentially psychic in origin, and therefore it is not unthinkable that the deep contents of the collective unconscious, that is, the archetypes and the powerful energies connected with them, could effect them."

Plato's Cave

http://www.historyguide.org/intellect/allegory.html

 

[Socrates] And now look again, and see what will naturally follow if the prisoners are released and disabused of their error. At first, when any of them is liberated and compelled suddenly to stand up and turn his neck round and walk and look towards the light, he will suffer sharp pains; the glare will distress him, and he will be unable to see the realities of which in his former state he had seen the shadows; and then conceive some one saying to him, that what he saw before was an illusion, but that now, when he is approaching nearer to being and his eye is turned towards more real existence, he has a clearer vision, -what will be his reply? And you may further imagine that his instructor is pointing to the objects as they pass and requiring him to name them, -will he not be perplexed? Will he not fancy that the shadows which he formerly saw are truer than the objects which are now shown to him?

Buddhism and Scientism « Path Press

Buddhism and Scientism « Path Press | The Search for It | Scoop.it

From the article: "The kind of Materialism I intend to discuss at length here, I call Scientism. It has become essentially the predominant religion of Western culture, and is unofficially the National Religion of the USA, having replaced Protestant Christianity long ago. Even followers of other religious or spiritual systems found in the West, including Buddhism, tend to follow Scientism first and foremost, and their own professed system secondarily. For example, many Western Buddhists, even Dharma teachers, are reluctant to accept teachings of Buddhism that cannot be explained in terms of Scientism, and so they may ignore or reject even relatively fundamental Buddhist doctrines such as karma, rebirth, even Nirvana itself."
