Jungian Archetype of the wolf – gods and godnesses, warriors and mothers, demons and outlaws, evil and uebermensch


In a few weeks, there is Whitsun, and I will make one of my occasional trips to the monastery. The rock monastery St. George is a development center of the Benedictine  order in the Austrian Inn valley. From the monastery to the St. George mountain (Karwendel) on foot takes approximately one  hour. The religious exercise will be lead by a Benedictine monk, who happens … Continue reading

Jung’s Rebirth Archetypes and Transformation

A Jungian view must … Continue reading

Last Print Newsweek – some thought on New Years Eve 2012/13.


Today I received the last print of the Newsweek. From now on all my information (and 5% of the new books) will be electronically, that is to say via Internet. I discarded all unreliable sources like TV and local newspaper long ago. Time wasters. Now all have been  replaced by Blogs, Skype Video, Twitter, WhisperNet and … Continue reading

Blogsphere as Hesse’s Glass Bead Game against the ‘Feuilletonistic‘ world


In Herman Hesse’s final novel The Glass Bead Game, which won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1946, he introduces essentially a hypothetical meta game, which has been compared with a  “neural network of cosmic mind”. This gave me the idea to probe today’s social and knowledge networks of the Internet as it were The Glass Bead Game, … Continue reading

How to write a great blog


Originally posted on Cristian Mihai:
First, I’d like to say that there is no how-to guide or recipe for writing a brilliant post. That being said, I’d also like to point out the fact that some posts seem to perform better than others. Lists and guides usually receive more comments and likes than “normal” blogs.…
