Tarot Lovers Relative To Bicameral Mind Theory







Tarot Lovers Relative To Bicameral Mind Theory Inspired by “The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind” by  Julian Jaynes My rendition of The Lovers tarot card defines in its imagery the clash of modern consciousness rising within humankind, thus preempting the automatic responses of previous generations. Prior to approximately 1000 BC, bicameral mind theory is of the opinion that humans responded robotically to the impulses of nature. Heard as ancestral voices these impulses over time developed into the voices of gods. The serpent featured in the card is raw nature. It is the source of hallucinated […]

Tarot Hierophant, Appearance of Awareness







Hierophant Major Arcana Tarot Divination Card Hierophant major arcana tarot card represents a quality within us that registers an awareness of phenomenon. It is not the elucidation of the phenomenon but the bringing to our attention that there is something of which we are not cognizant. Admitting we are in the dark about a subject is our door to learning about it. Overcoming fear to enter the dark is our next step on the path to cognition of the paradox. See Tarot Hermit and Tarot Devil In the foreground of the card the scroll of life unfolds and as it does so the […]

Hanged Man Tarot Card, Hunting Ground Of The Paradoxical Bat







Hanged Man Tarot Card The Hanged Man tarot card represents a world where consciousness is given up to sleep and our nocturnal eidolon, in the image of a bat, is released to hunt through our dreams.

This path corresponds to the element of water related to the powerful Plutonian depths of our subconscious minds where contact is established with other dimensional entities. Because our traditional concepts of language are not understood by the beings we encounter at these depths we […]

Sun Enters Aries Tarot Emperor







Tarot Emperor Tarot Emperor is depicted as pharaoh of Ancient Egypt. Lord of both worlds, Upper and Lower Egypt, symbolized by the plants of these two regions, the lotus and the papyrus. Metaphysically these two worlds are the seen and unseen, the conscious and the subconscious. For  a deeper understanding of the cards take time to consider what is occurring in the natural world when the Sun enters Aries. Translate this astrological phenomena as a metaphor to discern its meaning regarding your question. Interpretation must come from within oneself through listening to one’s own inner voice. Take time to read Julian Jaynes […]

Dream Linguistics, Dream Language







Dream Linguistics Dream linguistics. dream language,  is a technique of communication employed by classes of diverse orders of beings desiring to converse with one another. Application of this method is not dependent on the communicating energy systems being of the same race, species or even coexisting to the same time, space or dimension.  The communication will naturally occur when an in-between[i] consciousness state engages between the communiques.  This in-between consciousness is the realm of “creative dreaming,” which has a correlation with the concepts of imagination and art. What we gain through the application of this language technique is realizing we […]
