Carl Jung Once Said…

Carl Gustav Jung was born on July 26, 1875 and died on June 6, 1961. Carl was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology.

As far as we discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being. – Carl Jung

I agree with Carl in that I believe what he’s saying is there has to be a balance in life. If you have light you must have darkness and to embrace the light you have to see the darkness. It may seem contradictory but that is the way things are for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. To move forward sometimes you have to go back. We learn from both sides not just one… learning from one and not the other has a weird bias.

In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order. – Carl G. Jung

This quote is similar to the previous one in with one you can’t have the other or when there is one there’s also the other. There is a balance in life so when or where there is chaos there must be peace or in this case a secret order.

Synchronicity: A meaningful coincidence of two or more events where something other than the probability of chance is involved. – Carl Jung

I think what Jung was saying is to have synchronicity at least one way of it happening or to become synchronized is the chance or coincidence of two or more events where chance is involved. People say that when something good happens and later after a couple other events something better happens that it was fate…. or some kind of synchronicity. Carl came up with the concept of synchronicity.

Jung was also behind the concept of anima or animus (female and male) theory of collective unconscious anthropomorphic archetypes of the unconscious mind, as opposed to the theriomorphic and inferior function of the shadow archetypes. (this paragraph of information I got from Wikipedia). So for me a avid consistent player of Assassin’s Creed we have the animus fragments thanks to Jung.
