Sucked Back Into the Universe, Never Perishing

Sucked Back Into the Universe, Never Perishing

The never perishing series is in part a search for wisdom. Jung maintained that thinking in the early "primordial images"...in symbols, before historical man/woman, before language, is still the groundwork for the human psyche. He felt that "wisdom" and a full life is only possible by being in harmony with this early, what I call visceral language. He defines one of the "primordial images" as the idea of death and what comes after. Birth and death had to be one of the most powerful, universal focal points among early humans, organizing culture, giving rise to rich and diverse ritual practices and beliefs, yet with amazing threads of commonality. As individuals less tightly bound to one group, I feel we not only carry this early visual "template", we each evolve a layered, deeply personal, perhaps non verbal, idiosyncratic mythology of our own destiny. Death remains a powerful focal point for organizing thought and ties us to one another from the beginning of human existence as nothing else does.
