  • Stories about Identity, Baltimore, Police, Black People, Mothers, and Ted Cruz.

    in Psychology

    An exploration of the some of the stories in the news as they relate to identity that have me really frightened about the current direction of American politics and what life is becoming in our once proud, fragile democracy. Will we remain a land of individuals or become a theocracy like Iran, run by hate filled clergy who demand that people are Muslim first and themselves second. Will we become like Hitler's Germany, Stalin's Russia or Mao's China where defining yourself as part of the Nazi party, or as a Communist trumped all else?  Will we find ourselves submerged into some group identity and led by powPower hungryer hungry demogagues no longer able to vote our individual conscience or even define who we are as people capable of love and creatitivty. Time to speak out before it is too late!

  • Steven M. Rosen, Integrative Journey through Alchemical Dimensions

    in Psychology

    In the Preface to his latest book, Dreams, Death, Rebirth: A Topological Odyssey into Alchemy's Hidden Dimensions, Steven Rosen states: "Our greatest certainty and greatest mystery is our mortality. In this book, I explore the subject of death and rebirth from a philosophical perspective that addresses the question of human identity. What death and its possible survival mean to us depends on the meaning of “us”—they depend, that is, on what we assume to be the boundaries and limits of our being." Steve's work in this and his previous books is some of the most profound I have read. He draws upon the topological structures of the Mobius strip, the Klein bottle, and others to help us understand the truly paradoxical connection we have to other forms of life--the animal, vegetable, and mineral realms--which are not "out there" but "in here," in us. This book integrates the work of thinkers and paradigms that are not often integrated, including, Jean Gebser, C.G. Jung, alchemy, and topology.  And Steve's personal dreams are used to illustrate and deepen the ideas.  Truly a one of a kind journey!

    The gospel of Jesus Christ is for sale and the hirelings are having a "fire sale!"

    The truth is an offense according to the Belligerent Christ! If this is you...prepare to be OFFENDED! We are goin' hard in thepaint!
