Collective Unconscious
  • Reservoir of our experiences as a species
  • A kind of knowledge we are all born with
  • We can never be directly conscious of it
  • Influences all our experiences and behaviors especially the emotional ones
  • Ex: love at first sight, déjà vu, immediate recognition of certain symbols, near-death experiences
  • The contents of the collective unconscious
  • An unlearned tendency to experience things a certain way
  • Has no form, but acts as organizing principle on the things we see or do
  • Like a black hole in space; you know its there by how it draws light and matter to itself
