“Kunst ist eine Vermittlerin des Unaussprechlichen; darum scheint es eine Torheit, sie wieder durch Worte vermitteln zu wollen.“ – Goethe rr04ouh

(“Art is a mediator of the inexpressible, so it seems a folly to give them back with words.” – Goethe)


Carl Jung 1875 – 1961 Pioneer in Dream Analysis.

“The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purposes through him. As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is “man” [[Mannaz, rr20ehh]] in a higher sense – he is “collective man,” a vehicle and moulder of the unconscious psychic life of mankind.” (from ‘Psychology and Literature’, 1930) rr04ouh

Jung’s Understanding of Art’s Purpose, being channeled through dam Artist has a long History. We can see it in Shamanism, Divination, Seances & Neurosises. One Way to look at dæm Difference between anem Artist & anem Neurotic is thæt both are Possessed. Dar Neurotic starts cleaning Door Knobs over & over again while aner Artist continually paints Door Knobs over & over again until another Obsession possess them. We see this Idea of being enem Vehicle for onem HIGHER CALLING in Meister Eckhart, Goethe, Nietzsche, Gaston Bachelard & Heidegger. We can break down great Artists into Three Levels. Dær first Level is dar Artist who can channel his Personal Unconscious. Dær Second Level is dar Artist who can channel his Tribal Unconscious. Dær Third Level is dor one that Mystics like Jung, Nietzsche & Heidegger talk about. This is dor Artist who can channel Art that breaks thru dæn Time & Space Matrix, breaks thru dæn Spell, dæn Hex, rr09æee.

“The great thinker is one who can hear what is greatest in the work of other “greats” and who can transform it in an original manner.” Heidegger’s Nietzche p.35 rr04ouh
