Jung's theory divides the psyche into three parts. The first is the ego,which Jung identifies with the conscious mind. Closely related is the personal unconscious, which includes anything which is not presently conscious, but can be. The personal unconscious is like most people's understanding of the unconscious in that it includes both memories that are easily brought to mind and those that have been suppressed for some reason. But it does not include the instincts that Freud would have it include.

But then Jung adds the part of the psyche that makes his theory stand out from all others: the collective unconscious. You could call it your "psychic inheritance." It is the reservoir of our experiences as a species, a kind of knowledge we are all born with. And yet we can never be directly conscious of it. It influences all of our experiences and behaviors, most especially the emotional ones, but we only know about it indirectly, by looking at those influences.

There are some experiences that show the effects of the collective unconscious more clearly than others: The experiences of love at first sight, of deja vu (the feeling that you've been here before), and the immediate recognition of certain symbols and the meanings of certain myths, could all be understood as the sudden conjunction of our outer reality and the inner reality of the collective unconscious. Grander examples are the creative experiences shared by artists and musicians all over the world and in all times, or the spiritual experiences of mystics of all religions, or the parallels in dreams, fantasies, mythologies, fairy tales, and literature.

The Power of the unspoken word over the spoken one is great. That left unspoken has as many possibilities as you can imagine. So it translates into being the power of your emotion.
So is the power of music without words. Its, So Beautiful. Exquisite. Music at its best where it has its raw and unmitigated power. It has the power of imagination.
It simply is Raw Emotion where there are no sophistication or limitations of some "Words". Its completely free. It would need to be music itself for someone to communicate these feeling effectively to someone else.

If you wanna be hot be hot , If you want to be cool be cool. Be what you wanna be, not what others want you to be.
Dont try to fake if are not comfortable with yourself then you wont sell. Its basically about your conviction. If you have the conviction even if you know much much less than someone else you will speak with more passion. Then you will be saying things straight from your heart.

Life of Pi

Yann Martel that story of yours "Life of PI" it was simply astounding. I really dont know how to explain it.

Truth to say till the second part of the book I didnt understand why this story was given the booker prize. But after completing this book it seems that it was too small a recognition for such a work, not in anyway demeaning for the Booker Prize. The whole story just touched my mind is certain ways which I cant start to explain. My command of this language does not allow me to express the full range of the feeling when I completed the book. There was a level of satisfaction unparalleled.

When I started reading this book it didnt seem that interesting. Usually I devour books within hours. But I didnt read this book in one go. It didnt seem that interesting. At best it was only richard parker that interested me. But at the end It simply was a revelation of how a story can be. To spin from ones imagination a storey of this depth and character is simply great. I have nothing more to add.
