These archetypal patterns are dynamic living forms of energy. Archetypes has been around since at least the time of Plato, who believed that archetypal patterns were imprinted upon the soul at the time of birth, and that the soul then played out these patterns. Carl Jung, the father of modern psychoanalysis, is probably best known for his work on archetypes. Like Plato, Jung said that archetypes are essentially independent energies that exist apart from the individual and reside in our  'collective unconscious'. For Jung, archetypal patterns and the collective unconscious formed the bridge between man and the Divine, between science and religion, and established that all is 'one'.
