Our awareness of reality has changed over time, owing to those amongst us
willing to step into uncharted spaces.
Marco Polo, for example, through his writings of the New World, he helped
move us from the ‘flatlanders’ perspective.
Another example is Freud. For many decades we were stuck with his views of
sexuality and the ‘Oedipus Complex.’ Some perverted perspective that boys
are jealous of their fathers because of their love of their mother.
Carl Jung, Freud’s protégé discovered Freud’s hypocrisy; it seems Freud had
been having a long term illicit relationship with his sister-in-law, who
abided with him and his wife.
Thus, Freud was a contradiction in terms. He was ‘reading his own eyelids’
coined his theories and carved them into history
Each of us are forces in the world, ‘index cards’ holding the space open
for this or that, whatever our particular integrity dictates.
