OwlKaMyst - Yes, I have probably got it wrong to call it that. The Akashic Records is probably what I meant. Thanks.

I think this is what I was trying to describe... about 7 paragraphs down the page

Link here to Carl Jung.net

Quote:
We may also describe it as a universal library of human knowledge, or the sage in man, the very transcendental wisdom that guides mankind.

Jung stated that the religious experience must be linked with the experience of the archetypes of the collective unconscious. Thus, God himself is lived like a psychic experience of the path that leads one to the realization of his/her psychic wholeness.

Something to do with the Xi'an body/hands/legs/etc which showed great similarities with Italian art and quite unlike other Chinese art culture at the time.

My point is that it appears there were foreigners moving about from continent to continent and taking knowledge with them. One only has to look at the spread of pyramidal structures across the world to see that our understanding of ancient human movements is not very good. Ancient Astronaut theorists believe there was a cross-culture knowledge exchange, so myths and legends of the Flood, Sleeping Beauty etc may well have come from there.
Sleeping Beauty, and a few other disney stories are Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, Rumplstilskin, The Little Mermaid, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Cinderella, even Frozen. All Brothers Grimm tales. Probably where we get the word "grim" from, as none of them originaly have happy endings. Like in Cinderella; the step-sisters all orginally cut their toes off to fit in the glass slippers, Rumplestiltdkin; she dies from the spinning wheel prick, Sleeping Beauty almost dies, Ariel dies, Red is eaten by the wolf, who is then hacked to death by the woodsman. Old stories, but not ancient.

Technically, Brothers Grimm did not create any of those stories, they just wrote them down. But it is a large collection of folklore from across all of Europe. Little Red Riding Hood is of Italian origins, far from the Grimms homeland. Cinderella was written down by a Frenchman Charles Peraultt (sp?) in the 1600's. He even added to the original folklore. He added the glass slipper, he added the pumpkin.
Now there is another story very, very similar that comes from either Japan or China, don't recall exactly. The 'slipper' in this story was made of fur. And I think the story is older than the 1600's

Is time linear? If not, then all energy and all time records in the CU are available to tap into if one has the ability.

Are there other dimesions? If so, then it is likely some of those people living in those other dimensions also have the ability to tap into this CU and probably also add to it with their own energies.

Of course, these are large 'IF' s but most people on here have probably considered at least some of them before.

From some of these discussions, it is only a few small steps to Heaven, Hell, Reincarnation, Ghosts, Aliens, and even God himself.
This topic reminded me of the hundredth monkey effect. The collective unconscious of one group affecting that of another group.

Hundredth monkey effect

Watson then concluded that the researchers observed that once a critical number of monkeys was reached, i.e., the hundredth monkey, this previously learned behavior instantly spread across the water to monkeys on nearby islands.

the hundredth monkey effect may be something which indicates we are all connected via a great big pool of consciousness - perhaps? That we all take and give back to that giant pool, and individual species evolve by using that pool to make use of ideas and knowledge.

My understanding of the collective unconscious is a graphic. Imagine many ice burgs floating in the ocean. The visible ice burg, to borrow from Freud, is our conscious mind. The subconscious in the ice burg portion below the surface, and all ice burgs float in the collective unconscious. If an ice burg melts, it's spirit or substance is still with us as water, a part of the whole. Ice burgs are continually made, break apart, and melt again. Thus we are all part of something larger and from that will return.

That said, I also believe that people can access the collective unconscious to varying degrees, either through meditation, prayer, peak experiences, drugs, what have you. Most cultures have a "form" of collective unconscious, Christians call theirs Heaven.

Now I tend to believe both versions. I do doubt the entire "Heaven" thing, but still hold out on faith. The primordial ooze of the collective unconscious is probably the safer bet, but not very comforting.

Jung thought so. So I won't argue with him. BTW, he did believe the heaven thing or at least angels and special visiting beings.
