Theos-World Response to Mark

I would question also, whether it is even possible to consciously
perceive an archetypal symbol in action upon us, (whether from within or
without) without personalizing it into a sign, by Jung's definition. >>

Well, it is easier to see it in others than in oneself. But Jung
did so, and said that we all should be able to do this.

>>I don't believe that we have a conscious relationship with the
archetypes but through such a personal interpretation. >>

I agree that this is so for the vast majority of people.

>>It's the understanding of the difference among any particular signs
and the commonality of the underlying archetype that humanizes and
breeds both brotherhood and compassion. Would you agree?

Agreed. Thanks Mark.
