SJSworks : #Neurobiology, ... - ... Neurobiology, Symbolic Imagery & Jung — And A Book That Brings Them Together. The Neurobiology of the Gods (2012) first gained accolades for grounding CG Jung’s ideas in modern neuroscience.
Yet Goodwyn’s explanation for why we create symbolic imagery makes this an important book not only for analytical psychologists, but also for evolutionary psychologists, traumatologists, and anyone interested in the central role of symbolic imagery for human experience. Goodwyn writes “the primary focus of this work is in symbolic imagery— how the brain constructs it, interacts with it, and imbues it with numinous significance (in the case of gods).” Goodwyn’s subject matter is actually more far-reaching than this.
He also sheds light on why we evolved to have symbolic imagery in the first place. James Hillman Archetypal Psychology. Details Parent Category: Tools to Change Society Category: Archetypes: What Are They?

Whitney Houston sang about it. Few possess that rare innate ability to channel myriad personas depending on mood, moment, or, in the case of Sarah Jessica Parker, dress. It's no surprise women adore SJP: the Every Woman appeals to, well, every woman. She dresses for herself, not to make men swoon or women jealous.

AN INTERSTICE: NEW YEARS & "END" TIMES Mirthology 101. Happy 2013!
