Researching Metamorphoses of Psyche, Un- and enlightenment

done by Nataša Pantović

“Only by discovering  have I clearly understood that the Unconscious is a process and that ego’s rapports with the unconscious and his contents initiate an evolution, more precisely a real metamorphoses of the psyche…”

Jung quote about Alchemy

In our wish to relate to omnipotent, omniscience, and omnipresence , we use art, music or poetry to express since Ratio has no unobstructed pathways towards .

The Mystical knowledge is gained either through contemplating art or comprehending Air / Earth / Water / Sun as the most immanent physical sources of life. These are different spiritual paths to  from the Himalayan monk meditating, through the fisherman out in the open sea, to the artist composing a masterpiece.

How to read Ancient Philosophers and Manuscripts

Forgetfulness and Unconsciousness

Until recently we couldn’t quite understand our neighbors even if we tried… the first Polyglot Bible was published around 1570 containing text in five languages: Hebrew, Syriac, Greek, Latin and Chaldean.

Reading progress update: I've read 33%.
The Waiting Sands - Susan Howatch

Not the edition I'm reading, but by far the most atmospheric cover of all the editions on BL.

 

I don't like either of the men -- if I'm not supposed to, job well done, Ms. Howatch.  If I am supposed to like one or all of them (or even find them intriguing) ... I guess it's a good thing we've moved on since the 1970s.  That said, as a teenager I'd probably have fallen for Daniel.

 

Kyle of Lochalsh. 
Got some photos of my own, too -- will have to look for them later.

And I'm pretty sure Roshven is inspired by Eilean Donan Castle ... which, after all, also figures in everything from James Bond to the Highlander movie (and which in reality isn't half as ancient as it is conveniently made to look).

Halloween Bingo - Terror in a Small Town
To Love and Be Wise - Josephine Tey,Robert Barnard

I need a break from The Last Man.

 

I thought I'd continue with my catch-up on Josephine Tey's work, and from what I have been able to scope, this one is set in a village or small town called Salcott St. Mary. 

And that is all I know about this book so far. 

 

So, this is for my last Bingo square: Terror in a Small Town.

City of Brass
The City of Brass - S.A. Chakraborty

First, I would like to say I am glad I had someone read this to me, because some of these names, locations and titles were incomprehensible to me.

 

Now, as for the story, I loved the imagery. The vibrant world and history. But I found this plot wordy and dense. And when it was over, I was also left with a whole lot of unanswered questions. It seemed the plot meandered and snaked, which wouldn't normally be bad. But in this case, I felt like sometimes it forgot what it was trying to convey.

 

The characters were at least varied. We had the leading man, the womanizing secretly gay prince, the uptight warrior, the political king, the snobby princess. This book covered the whole gamete. 

 

If there is a second in this series, I don't know if I will bother with it. 

 

Edit: This is a trilogy. The second is called The Kingdom of Copper, and from the blurb I'm not interested much at all.

WTF...this series just keeps getting better, while others did not...I felt this second book surpassed the first.
Wayward (The Wayward Pines Series, Book Two) - Blake Crouch

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~SERIES BLURB~

Wayward Pines

Blake Crouch

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

The plot surrounds Secret Service agent Ethan Burke's introduction to the remote small town of Wayward Pines, his new home from which he cannot escape. The mysteries and horrors of the town build until Ethan discovers its secret. Then he must do his part to keep Wayward Pines protected from without and within.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE (non-spoiler) REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

This is the type of story that you should go into blind…or at least semi-blind.  So I won't say anything about the plot itself.  I was completely absorbed in this audiobook, other than the beginning where I struggled to remember what happened at the end of Pines, I eventually fell into the story and started remembering.  If you decide to read this series...don't watch the TV show, after finishing the first book, I watched about an episode and a half and it has differences in how things play out, that only confused me when I started this book.  What a crazy-scary AF atmosphere that Blake Crouch has masterminded here in this series.  I cannot wait to listen to the third and final book in this series.
