Behaviour

On the Self

The Ego Trick looked at the 'bundle theory' of the self, and argued that we don't have a permanent essential self, but instead are a bundle of thoughts, sensations and impulses.

Meanwhile, a Harvard clinical psychologist and Tibetan Buddhist scholar, examined the nature of awareness and self.

On Jung

A work in progress...for now, I attach quotes that intrigued me from my so far partial reading of Jung's Memories, Dreams, Reflections.

Only what is interior has proved to have substance and a determining value. As a result, all memory of outer events has faded, and perhaps these outer experiences were never so essential anyway – Memories, Dreams and Reflections, Flamingo edition 1989, p10-11

It also became apparent to him that numerous neuroses spring from a disregard for this fundamental characteristic of the psyche [religion], especially during the second half of life – Memories, Dreams and Reflections, Flamingo edition 1989, p12

The way I am and the way I write are a unity. All my ideas and all my endeavours are myself – Memories, Dreams and Reflections, Flamingo edition 1989, p14

So are we all really being watched over by "machines of loving grace"? If you've never seen the documentaries by Adam Curtis, full as they are of quirky and strangely compelling arguments, patterns and links between the seemingly unlinked, then sit back, ingest a huge pinch of salt, take it all in and think for yourself.
