Carl Jung, a Swiss psychologist from the Twentieth Century, after rejecting
Freud’s theories, went on to create his own.
He suggests we are all unconsciously connected (connected at the level of
the unconscious). This has broad based implications.
If through our sensory mechanism we are receiving feedback that is
unsettling, our peace is interrupted. In a society that has us running on
a hamster wheel to keep up, it’s no wonder alcohol, recreational
depressants and prescriptive anti-depressants are employed by such a large
part of our population in order to block out the sensory data bombarding
us, threatening our psychological equilibrium.
