“Apart from the moral difficulty there’s another danger particularly with individuals who are pathologically inclined. This is the fact that the contents of the personal unconscious (i.e. the shadow) are indicting weighable merged with the archetypal contents of the collective unconscious and drag the latter with them when the shadow is brought into consciousness. This may exert uncanny influence on the mind conscious,; for activated archetypes have a disagreeably effect, even, particularly on the most cold-blooded rationalist – he’s afraid that the lowest form of conviction, namely superstition, is, as he thinks, forcing itself on him.” – Psychological Types, C.G. Jung
“I met her online [same blonde woman from my dream on 2/22/2011]. We were talking and I asked her what she does, she said she is in charge of a website and works from home while taking care of her kids. And I asked her how she makes money off it and how it became successful. Her site was on videos, movies and such where people could rent or buy or something, as well as music. I don’t know, it was strange. Then as I was browsing her site an idea came to my mind of making my own, an art site. I told her about it, she said she’d help.
And I was looking at the computer screen, her site, then it switched to my site, but it was blurry, I couldn’t make anything out. I just felt excited about it, and then I woke up. With the idea of creating the site, couldn’t go back to sleep even of the excitement. Still think about it; just don’t know how to make it happen. That one may happen.”
I believe this dream was before Netflix came about, or around the time, I am not sure. I still have a desire to make an art website, geared toward children of various ages and needs, with the influence of social change. Maybe one day this ‘vision’ will be clear and become reality. Never stop believing, right?
