These stages that, as it were, “popped” into my mind and persisted there in spite of all my rational doubts, were none other than the stages of my own inner life.

Archetype (n): a very typical example of a certain person or thing; types that fit fundamental human motifs.. Cliché (n): A trite or overused expression or idea; often a vivid depiction of an abstraction that relies upon analogy or exaggeration … For a long time I approached this problem as if it were a philosophical question (as per my training as a philosopher), and I constantly came away from the pondering with a feeling of pain, caught between the horns of a dilemma. It is possible to have a numinous experience of a bar of soap or a bubble or a woman or man or a cloud or a mountain. It is more abstract, more a thought than an image, even if the thought is an emotionally charged and magnetic one.

I never get to the top. Indeed Moses received the Torah [the Five Books of Moses in the Old Testament] at Sinai and gave it over to those who sought the kiss, and this is a great secret; there is no place in the entire Torah which arouses the soul to its initial thought like this. Continuing with the idea that mountains have individual personalities and even are persons, there is a camera on the holy hill (or mountain) in India called, This is one of the greatest of the contemporary public, The personal, individual nature of each archetypal experience is one factor that contributes to the difficulty we have identifying an archetypal experience while we are in one.
