Answer To Job

One of Carl Jung’s most controversial works, Answer to Job, is a deep psychological and mythological breakdown of, perhaps, the most confusing books of the Bible: The Book of Job, and, in turn, God as a psychological phenomenon. I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with the actual story of Job, but I should give…

WestWorld and Jungian Psychology

If you’ve read some of my previous posts, I’ve slipped in a few details about my own life here and there, and one little fact that I’ve mentioned about myself is that I don’t watch a lot of movies or TV shows. Seriously, close to none at all. I usually find myself indulging in a…

The Unopen Door

Here’s a poem I wrote. A little backstory: I’ve had these “words” on the tip of my tongue for quite some time now. I never knew exactly how to articulate them, or even place them in a proper sentence. I’ve been going back and forth trying to write this poem, but every time, it doesn’t…

What is Conscious Thought?

I was reading this article the other day which poses an idea, or to him, a fact, but it poses this idea that we don’t really have any conscious thought. I’ll link the article, just so you can read it, though, I’m not going to reference it too much in this post, but rather just…

Written in Blood

Have you ever asked yourself: What makes writing good? Deep? Able to find and touch the lowest parts of the soul? The parts we keep dormant? Nietzche certainly had a criticism of most writers in that most of their writing, it does nothing more for the reader but idle them. But what does he mean? He means…

A Brave New World

**Warning. Long post ahead** It’s quite odd to write about a book that was written nearly a century ago, 1932 to be exact, and it still be very much relevant today, and possibly, increasingly relevant as we continue on into the future. And, you might ask, what do I mean? Well, one thing I’ve found…

Was God Naive?

I have this problem, one in which I’m trying very hard to overcome, but it almost seems impossible. What is my problem you ask? I can’t stop myself from continuing to start new avenues of creativity, you could call it, without finishing my current one. What I mean by that is, although I haven’t finished…

Moral Perspectives

The more and more I dive into, what some would call, the world of mysticism, spirituality, or transcendence, I find that there’s less and less I know about the nature of reality itself. Many people I run into and happen to have a conversation with, even among many of my friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, it…

Portals Into the Past

I still don’t understand how a single picture, it can bring back so many memories. It’s such an odd thing. It’s almost like we forget we still have these memories locked away in our unconscious minds. We go on with our lives like it never happened and BAM, you go through an old picture album,…

Why I don’t pray

I want to write about something that I’m fairly certain is going to be close to one of my more controversial posts, if not, my most controversial. It’s something I’ve been meaning to write about for quite some time, but every time I start, it doesn’t feel as if I’m ready. Now, for reasons beyond…
