Nothing in excess.
- the other Inscription on the temple to Apollo at Delphi
"A great truth is a truth whose opposite is also a great truth."
- Niels Bohr
"Neither Being nor Non-being
neither air nor earth nor space:
what was enclosed? where?
under whose protection?
What was water, deep, unfathomable?
Neither death nor immortality, day nor night--
but ONE breathed by itself with no wind.
Nothing else. Darkness swathed in darkness, unmanifest water.
The ONE, hidden by void,
felt the generation of heat, came into being
as Desire, first seed of Mind..."
- Rig Veda
"Before the beginning was Eros: blind hunger, primordial urge, formless power, undirected desire, aimless energy, voracious craving, unorganized activity: Boundless Creativity."
- God, Trinity and Creation
God as Masculine and Feminine
"The next step is the division into TWO. Thus was manifested the Great Dual Power of Nature. As above, so below.
The Dual Power of Nature is the Great Mother of the Worlds.
Again, to draw an analogy from the Material World, consider the Moon, our Mother. Behold in her the Typic representative of the Powers of the Two. Light and Darkness, Flux and Reflux, Ebb and Flow --- these are her manifested Powers in Nature --- where also she binds the "Great Waters" to her Will."
"Represents duality. Alteration; diversity; conflict; dependence. Two is a static condition. It is rooted, seen as balance (two sides); stability; reflection. Two are the opposite poles. Represents the dual nature of the human being. It is desire, since all that is manifest in duality is in pairs of opposites. The Binary is the first number to recede from Unity, it also symbolizes sin which deviates from the first good and denotes the transitory and the corruptible
"If One represents the principle of Unity from which all things arise, then Two, the Dyad, represents Duality, the beginning of multiplicity, the beginning of strife."
Eros, for being the son of Poros and Penia, reveals himself perpetually unsatisfied and restless, dearth in constant search for completeness, a subject in search of an object. He is psykhopompós like Hermes and he shares with Dionysus an inexorable living energy. He is a pure life instinct, an inner force that seeks to eroticize the relations in order to preserve what is proper to life.
Eros is Dynamis, the force that mobilizes the return to unity.
It is through the transcendental function of love that Reason and Emotion can communicate, surpass outdated positions and find a new space..."
"The urge to unite, get involved with other people rather than with ideas or things.
The image of Eros captures this as does the image of Venus."
"The image captured by the god Mars, the god of war. Yang is also the image of the Logos. It is cognition, reflection, consciousness, understanding."
"The subject becomes so swallowed up in individual feeling processes that to the observer it seems as though there were no longer a subject of feeling but merely a feeling process. In such a condition feeling has entirely forfeited its original human warmth, ...and in the worst cases appears definitely hysterical.
In so far as feeling is, incontestably, a more obvious peculiarity of feminine psychology than thinking, the most pronounced feeling-types are also to be found among women. When extraverted feeling possesses the priority we speak of an extraverted feeling-type. Examples of this type that I can call to mind are, almost without exception, women." (think again!)
- C. G. Jung 1921/1923
