My Archetype Project: The Architecture
Today I have begun a year-long excursion into the archetypes. I call it The Architecture. Each month of the year 2015, I will consider two of the 22 archetypes and the relationship between the two (of which there are 12). On the 1st of each month I will post a detailed description of the two archetypes and their relationship, and on the 15th of each month I will post a reflection on the relevance of the archetypes and their relationship contemporary cultural experiences, both social and personal.

Additionally, I will be writing introductory chapters to give context and a picture of the whole that I have come to call the Architecture. You can subscribe to get email updates if you like. Otherwise, I'll probably just bump this thread with a reminder each time I post.

Without further ado:

I hope you all enjoy this. I'm pouring a bundle of effort into it.
All is well.

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
I just posted today's addition: Reflection #1: The Suitor and the Débutante in the World. I think you'll find this one interesting because I didn't hold back on the STS versions the way I did in the first.
All is well.

You lost me when you brought in Good and Evil, now it just feels like you're talking about Dungeons and Dragons.

That's funny.

There is an anthro somewhere who needs me and I need them.

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
Unbound, I use those terms because most people don't have any meaningful context for STO and STS. Good and Evil have more emotional baggage, but they carry the same meanings.

For what it's worth, I intend to write a chapter on it; I just haven't yet.

Edit: Also, D&D, like any other RPG, is designed to emulate the life experience in a fantasy environment, so the D&D association doesn't really bother me that much. To put it differently, D&D is a myth that is directly relevant to the archetypal nature of the human experience.
All is well.

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
This one is for you, Unbound.

I also have to apologize that the schedule has changed slightly. These explanatory chapters are more necessary and need far more attention than I realized, so I'll have to post these chapters on the 1st of each month. On the 15 of each month, I will post a long write-up style chapter on each set of Archetypes. I'll include social topics (drawing from my experience) and now meditation questions (because it was requested of me) at the end of these write-ups.
All is well.

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
This is awesome stuff JustLikeYou!

Just one of the several insights that came to me was the actual motive for my original username. I knew it was an expression of an archetype but could not place my finger on which one it was pointing to. I can be incredibly slooooow brained at times it beggers belief!

Your invitation to viewing the first paired archetypes from the perspective of an observing alien interested in human experiences, certainly aids when evil aspects are explored.

Great stuff and many thanks  Heart

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
I'm scheduled to post an update today, but it is simply not ready. I am, after all, at the mercy of the muse. The upcoming chapter on the Mother and Father archetypes is mostly written but also mostly unedited.

I've delayed posting it for two weeks already, so hopefully those of you who are looking forward to it can wait one week more.
All is well.

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
Excited to read it Joseph. I can see how much work you have and are putting into this project . wow!

It's a little bit heavy for me....meaning I have to think really hard to understand... Smile.... However, I appreciate your work. I have done extensive personal processing with these two archetypes. It's cool to see a completely different perspective on them.
May all Beings everywhere be happy and free

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
I've just posted a new essay on Archetypes #5, the Hierophant, and #22, the Fool.


I can't really promise these essays on the 15th of the month anymore, nor can I promise anything in particular on the 1st. Expect one a month and my target will be the 15th, but history shows I'm likely to be late.
All is well.

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
Hi everyone, I forgot to post a link to my most recent essay (more than a month ago). Here it is: Marriage. This essay covers Archetypes #6 and #7, the Two Paths and the Chariot. I was supposed to have an essay on the next two (Justice and the Hermit) complete by now, but I don't. It's in the works.

Also, if you're reading this, Andi, I got your email but I couldn't email you back. For some reason gmail won't recognize your email address. Anyway, I think I fixed the issue you were having with viewing pages.
All is well.

Just finished this one. It's on Justice and the Hermit, or Balance and Wisdom as Ra calls them. Experimentation: The Wild One and the Researcher

Enjoy.

truly an astonishing document you've put together here Joseph.

I love the identification of the Potentiator of the Body ('Wisdom') as the Researcher.  Extremely apt; and it really clarifies that archetype for me.

I haven't had a chance to comment previously: but the website looks great in it's layout, very easy to read, and the way you've broken up the essay into segments, and also added appropriate images makes it extremely pleasing to read and digest.  The segments are not too short to be insubstantial, but not too long so that it looks like an unbroken wall of screen text.  As a fan of Bach and musical structure, I can appreciate the textual equivalents of balanced and intersecting components.  It looks great, but more than that, it's a condensation, physically, of a well-ordered, and a well-developed consciousness.  Blue-ray activity to the max!

I also appreciate the interspersing of personal material; it allows the concepts to be brought back to grounded experience, and given a unique context ("the story") that only you can relate.

So really well done, and thanks for your document.  (y)

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
I've just published my latest addition to this project. My treatment of the Wheel and the Enchantress (archetypes 10 and 11) is covered under the heading of The Warrior and the Lady. Enjoy.

Karl, it's lengthy and it's rough around the edges (because it is a first draft), but I do my best to make it accessible in the ways that my threads in this forum are not.
All is well.

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
Can I ask what, if any, advice you might have for becoming, or I guess Ennacting each Archetype?

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
First you have to be familiar with the archetype. That comes only through study.

Second, you cultivate the virtues associated with the Archetype. In the case of the Warrior, whom I have just posted about, you must be prepared to act at a moment's notice, you must have a strength of conviction sufficient to sacrifice your life for your cause, and you must pay careful attention to the consequences of your actions so that you never use more force than necessary.

Third, you must become sensitive to the moments when the archetype activates within you. When the archetype activates, that is the appropriate moment to become it. We all do this without thinking about it, but most of us become what I call an "unbalanced archetype," or a distorted version of it. Thus, we typically become either a Brute or a Coward rather than a Hero when the Warrior activates within us.

Finally, you must cultivate all the other archetypes so that you can anticipate the moments when the archetype is needed rather than passively awaiting its activation within you.
All is well.

Hi JustLikeYou,

Is the website still alive ?

RE: My Archetype Project: The Architecture
Hey, I'm sorry it took so long for me to notice this (and to update this thread).

Long story short, I think I made lots of mistakes in writing this work: so many that I stopped halfway through after deciding that I couldn't just revise it to fix the mistakes.

Anyway, I switched hosts and accidentally lost the subdomain database where I had the Architecture project; however, I didn't lose the work; I just lost that subdomain. Consequently, all the links in this thread are broken.

This is a link that works:
