Mythology in Star Wars Nobody paid $7 to hear Homer read The Odyssey, or lined up to buy Thomas Malory's 15th-century version of King Arthur's legend. But, when Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace opens at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, George Lucas' epic of galactic good and evil will be seen by more people in one day than Homer or Malory ever dreamed of reaching in their lifetimes. Different eras, different heroes, yet Lucas' film series contains the same mythic qualities those ancient storytellers and others used to fuel imaginations throughout the ages. Lucas always claimed that his lucrative Star Wars saga blends mythology and technology. Indeed, Lucas' fascination with mythology led to an enduring friendship with the late Joseph Campbell, perhaps the best-known expert in the field. Lucas blended archetypes of legends and visionary cinema into three Star Wars chapters between 1977 and 1983. The reason goes beyond state-of-the-art special effects and studio hype.

Psychoanalysis of MYTH - Applying Jung Jung's theories have certainly been ap­plied to the study of myth - abundantly so. But not in their entirety. The collec­tive unconscious and the process toward self-realization are psychoana­lytical components with little meaning to historians of religion, and dreadfully difficult to work with when examining mythological material. The archetypes, on the other hand, have flourished in interpretations of myths. Campbell, Eliade and others have not exactly adapted the archetypes as such, although several of those scholars admit to their existence and importance, but they have used the idea of extracting symbolic elements from the myths, and comparing these across cultural borders. Myths do have lots of similarities, no matter what culture or time they come from, and these similarities can easily be described in a manner approaching that of the archetypes. The question then is: are they symbols carrying additional meaning, or are they just heroes, sages, floods, journeys, and so forth?

Symbolisme des chiffres Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le symbolisme des chiffres concerne les signes écrits des nombres, en tant que symboles, dans leur capacité à représenter analogiquement, à être interprétés, à porter sens et valeurs (en plus de l'aspect pratique ou matériel). On entre dans l'étude des chiffres en tant que symboles (symbologie) ou en tant que systèmes (symbolique) ou dans l'examen de leur capacité à désigner, à signifier, voire à exercer une influence (symbolisme). Le chiffre en général a son symbolisme (il représente la forme du secret, l'apparence du mystère), et chaque chiffre a son symbolisme (le chiffre "arabe" 0 représente le vide, le chiffre "romain" X représente l'inconnu). La symbolique des chiffres porte tant sur la forme (droite/courbe, ressemblance avec des éléments physiques et concrets) que sur le sens et la valeur symboliques, indirectes, de chaque chiffre.

WikiMoot Archetypal Stories Archetypal Stories In the Poetics, Aristotle (4th century BC) developed the earliest known model of narrative form, based on the ideas of thematic organisation, completeness of form (1450b), and the creating and resolution of tension (1455b). The possibility of being even more specific depends on the validity of identifying characters as types. Aristotle viewed dramatic character in terms of making choices (1450b), so a wrong choice is made because of some defect of character, or 'tragic flaw' (1453a). It has also been noted on the mini-guide to structuralism elsewhere on this server that Vladimir Propp's Morphology of the Folktale (1928) identified seven spheres of action in fairy tales, corresponding to seven archetypal characters. The models of Aristotle and Propp have been taken to suggest that all literature may be analysed as the interplay between a limited number of factors involving character and narrative form.

Carl Jung Resources for Home Study and Practice Table d'émeraude Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Planche représentant une version latine de la Table d’émeraude gravée sur un rocher dans une édition de l’Amphitheatrum Sapientiae Eternae (1610) de l’alchimiste allemand Heinrich Khunrath. La Table d’émeraude (Tabula Smaragdina en latin) est un des textes les plus célèbres de la littérature alchimique et hermétique. C’est un texte très court, composé d'une douzaine de formules allégoriques et obscures, dont la fameuse correspondance entre le macrocosme et le microcosme : « Ce qui est en bas est comme ce qui est en haut, et ce qui est en haut est comme ce qui est en bas ». Malgré le discrédit scientifique de l'alchimie et le développement de la chimie moderne au XVIIIe siècle, elle a continué à fasciner occultistes et ésotéristes. Historique[modifier | modifier le code] Jusqu'au début du XXe siècle, on ne connaissait que des versions latines de la Table d’émeraude, les plus anciennes remontant au XIIe siècle.

Blavatsky Study Center:  Website on H.P. Blavatsky & Theosophy including Blavatsky Archives. Zone of Silence in Mexico is an Unexplained Mystery By Logan Hawkes There is much about our world that we still do not understand. Scientists tell us that natural mysteries abound in every corner of the Earth, from the lifeless desert of Chile to the bottomless depths of the Pacific, there are things we simply do not comprehend. Perhaps this is the best way to describe a place in northern Mexico in the middle of the hot, searing, punishing Chihuahuan desert, a place commonly called the "Zone of Silence" by the few locals, scientists, students and visitors that wander there from time to time in search of answers. Drive 400 hundred miles west of El Paso and you enter into an unforgiving section of foreboding semiarid desert landscape that begs for mercy but offers none. The region has remained all but undiscovered by the outside world. The Mexican government has since constructed a research complex in "the Zone", a place the scientists assigned there call the biosphere. Just don't plan on watching any TV in Ceballos.

Star Wars Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le logo de Star Wars tel qu'il apparaît en introduction des films et sur de nombreux produits dérivés. Star Wars (à l'origine nommée en France et au Québec sous son titre français, La Guerre des étoiles) est une épopée cinématographique de science-fiction créée par George Lucas en 1977. D'abord conçue comme une trilogie sortie entre 1977 et 1983, la saga s'est ensuite élargie de trois films sortis entre 1999 et 2005 racontant des événements antérieurs aux premiers. Tous ont connu un grand succès commercial et la première trilogie (épisodes IV, V et VI) a reçu un accueil critique très positif, qui ne sera néanmoins pas autant au rendez-vous pour la deuxième trilogie (épisodes I, II et III).

Carl Jung - Collective Unconscious Concept of Collective Unconscious at Jung Jung concept of collective unconscious is based on his experiences with schizophrenic persons since he worked in the Burgholzli psychiatric hospital. Though initially Jung followed the Freudian theory of unconscious as the psychic strata formed by repressed wishes, he later developed his own theory on the unconscious to include some new concepts. The most important of them is the archetype. Archetypes constitute the structure of the collective unconscious - they are psychic innate dispositions to experience and represent basic human behavior and situations. The most important of all is the Self, which is the archetype of the Center of the psychic person, his/her totality or wholeness. Archetypes manifest themselves through archetypal images (in all the cultures and religious doctrines), in dreams and visions. We may also describe it as a universal library of human knowledge, or the sage in man, the very transcendental wisdom that guides mankind.
