Abstract: Destruction of the Image and the Worship of Transiency - by Erel Shalit, published in Jung Journal, Winter 2010, Volume 4, Number 1, pp.85-98
Taking its starting point in Jung’s statement “Everything of which we are conscious is an image, and that image is psyche … [which] is a world in which the ego is contained,” this presentation will compare the fundamentalist’s collective consciousness of the One Truth, with the postmodern imagination of a multitude of perspectives. The identity of the fundamentalist is shaped by archetypal identification, whereby the shadow is projected on the “Evil Other,” against whom acts of evil may, as if, be “justifiably” perpetrated. Postmodern deconstruction of identity, on the other hand, tends toward a condition of transiency and “as-if.” Images and ideas become detached from “ground and reality.” The image becomes its own simulacrum, detached from the images of interiority. Finally, features of transiency and the transient personality are compared to and contrasted with the survivor syndrome.

Abstract: “Will Fishes Fly in Aquarius–Or Will They Drown in the Bucket?” by Erel Shalit, published in Jung Journal, November 2004, Vol. 23, No. 4, Pages 7–33
Jung’s book Aion serves as point of departure for this paper. The transition of the aeons from Pisces to Aquarius reflects decisive changes in the relationship between man and image – the image which is at the center of what Jung calls psychization, the process of reflection whereby consciousness is enhanced. At the daybreak of history, man extracted the image from the divine waters. Then, the craftsman whom God warned should not make graven images, came to replicate the divine on earth. By means of image and reflection, dream and dreaming, man becomes human, in the sense of not only partaking in events, but able to relate to experience. In Aquarius, images have been rounded up, and man now holds the bucket. “God’s powers have passed into our hands,” says Jung, which forces man to consider the shadow of unreflective progress, such as the transient as-if personality and soullessness. The legend of the golem serves to illustrate the condition of man, who has become master of the images that may either create or destroy our future.
