Two Shimmering Thoughts by Jung on His Birthday

1.“The unconscious can be reached and expressed only by symbols, and for this reason the process of individuation can never do without the symbol.”

Carl Gustav Jung, Collected Works Volume 13, “Alchemical Studies,” section 44

2.“What takes place between light and darkness, what unites the opposites, has a share in both sides and can be judged just as well from the left as from the right, without our becoming any the wiser: indeed, we can only open up the opposition again. Here only the symbol helps, for, in accordance with its paradoxical nature, it represents the “tertium” that in logic does not exist, but which in reality is the living truth. So we should not begrudge Paracelsus and the alchemists their secret language: deeper insight into the problems of psychic development soon teaches us how much better it is to reserve judgment instead of prematurely announcing to all and sundry…

________________________________________________________________

The Centaurs were a tribe of half man, half horse savages which inhabited the mountains and forests of Magnesia. 

Another tribe of Centaurs resided in the western Peloponnese where they came into conflict with the hero Heracles.

The centaurs were usually said to have been born of Ixion and Nephele (the cloud made in the image of Hera, Zeus‘ Wife):

Ixion fell in love with Hera and tried to rape her, and when Hera told Zeus about it, Zeus wanted to determine if her report was really true. So he fashioned a cloud (nephele) to look like Hera, and laid it by Ixion’s side. When Ixion bragged that he had slept with Hera, Zeus punished him by tying him to a wheel, on which he was turned by winds up in the air. The cloud bore Kentauros (Centaurus) from…

Five fun facts about Thomas Paine, firebrand of the American War of Independence

1. Paine’s pamphlet Common Sense remains one of the bestselling books in American publishing history. In 1776 alone it is thought to have sold in excess of 100,000 copies. Paine’s pamphlet Common Sense argued for independence for America, and when Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence in 1776, he drew heavily on Paine’s work (Paine was also the first person to use the phrase ‘United States of America’). John Adams would later say, ‘Without the pen of the author of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain.’

The Best H. G. Wells Novels

Fascinating!

10 classic books written by the master of science fiction, H. G. Wells

H. G. Wells (1866-1946) wrote dozens of books over the course of his literary career, a career which spanned over half a century. But what are the best books by H. G. Wells? As well as writing many classic works of science fiction, Wells also wrote non-fiction as well as many popular realist novels such as Kipps and The History of Mr Polly. But in this list of his best novels we’ve confined ourselves to the pick of his science fiction, since it’s for his science fiction that Wells is best remembered. As ever with our lists, we’ll start at number 10 and work our way up to what is, in our opinion, the best H. G. Wells novel of all…

Originally posted on Martuk ... the Holy:

So asks a new very generous, fantastic review for Martuk … the Holy: Proseuche.

Here’s a small excerpt:

Author Jonathan Winn ups the ante with this epic dark fantasy sequel that continues to span the ages. Proseuche does what a sequel should: it creatively expands every facet of the tale, yet does not merely exploit the success of the first book. It definitely stands on its own, and brings more depth, more emotions to the fore, enriching the overall arch. History is written by the winners, but that’s not the case here. Martuk knows all too well that the truth doesn’t set you free, it makes you free. Prepare to have your imagination stretched in this new and fresh take on humanity and what lurks behind the curtain we call reality.

You can read the rest here.

Gotta say there’s no better way to start the day than…
