Episode 147 - The Collective Unconscious, Persona, and Self w/ Carl Jung

Ep. 147

In this episode, Brynn Anderson and I listen to a very rare recording from one of the most influential humans of the modern age...Carl Jung. Considered to be the father of modern psychology, Dr. Jung brought many of the most popular concepts related to psychology into the collective consciousness. He gave us a new awareness that strengthened the understanding of ourselves, and so much more.. An incredible interview taking place in 1957 in Switzerland.. Drop In!

Carl Jung Bio:

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961) was an early 20th century psychotherapist and psychiatrist who created the field of analytical psychology. He is widely considered one of the most important figures in the history of psychology.


Carl Gustav Jung was born in Switzerland in 1875 to Emilie Preiswerk and Paul Jung, a pastor. Because of his father’s faith, Jung developed a keen interest in religious history, but he settled on the study of medicine at the University of Basel. After he completed his medical degree, Jung joined the staff at Burghoelzli Clinic in Zurich, Switzerland as an intern to Eugen Bleuler, where he explored the unconscious mind and its related complexes. He also traveled to Paris to study under Pierre Janet in 1902. In 1905, Jung was appointed to the faculty at the University of Zurich where he worked until 1913.

Jung married Emma Rauschenbach in 1903. The couple had five children and remained married until Emma's death in 1955, although Jung's extramarital affairs were extensive. Jung died in Switzerland in 1961. 

Jung sent a copy of his book Studies in Word Association to Sigmund Freud in 1906, and Freud reciprocated by inviting Jung to visit Vienna. Their friendship lasted until 1913, at which time they parted ways due to a difference in academic opinion. Jung agreed with Freud’s theory of the unconscious, but Jung also believed in the existence of a deeper collective unconscious and representative archetypes. Freud openly criticized Jung's theories, and this fundamental difference caused their friendship and psychological views to diverge.  

Jung traveled throughout the world to teach and influence others with his psychoanalytical theories. He published many books relating to psychology, and others that seemed outside the realm science, including Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies, which examined and dissected the psychological significance of UFO sightings. Jung’s work embodied his belief that each person has a life purpose that is based in a spiritual self. Through his eastern, western, and mythological studies, Jung developed a theory of transformation called individuation that he explored in Psychology and Alchemy, a book in which he detailed the relationship of alchemies in the psychoanalytical process.

  • 196. Episode 196 - Cracking the Shakespeare Code w/ Alan Green

    In this episode I speak with author, musician, and host of the Gaia Channel series ‘Shakespeare Decoded’…Alan Green. Alan and I talk about his journey from a professional musician to becoming the first person in 400 years to decipher one of history’s greatest mysteries. This code developed by the man known as Shakespeare and the occultist John Dee, is hidden within all of the writings of Shakespeare, and point to a fantastic secret that has been hidden all of this time. A secret that when unlocked could reveal one of the greatest archaeological and historical discoveries of this era. Alan and I have an amazing discussion breaking down what this code is, it’s history, and what this means for the future of humanity.. Join us!!!www.tobeornottobe.orgAlan Green Bio:Alan Green is a British-born pianist, composer, author and Shakespeare scholar. His former life in the music business (top thirty artist in the 80’s with CBS and Arista records; author of award-winning books on The Monkees; and musical director for Davy Jones) seems at odds with his current incarnation as a documentarian of ancient wisdom but his extensive musical training in classical and jazz disciplines has ideally prepared him to recognize deeply embedded patterns that orthodox academics have missed.Alan has spent the last 19 years devoted to deciphering a stunning web of codes hidden within the Shakespeare works which finally solves history’s most persistent cover-up. He’s the only person, in four hundred years, to have deciphered the codes that tell the whole story of who Shakespeare was and the scandalous royal secret that necessitated the cover-up. More than that, he’s identified the actual location where the author himself says he left physical evidence… and then pulled off the daring heist necessary to secure incontrovertible scientific proof in the form of a radar scan.Through Alan’s online Bard Code presentations and his new Gaia TV series, Shakespeare Decoded, we’re finally able to glimpse a previously unsuspected aspect of the world’s most popular and influential writer. One so far-reaching it will create a paradigm shift in how we study literature, history, religion, science, and many other disciplines.
