Faceless Shadows

Faceless Shadows (covers)

Either an ideological break in proximity, or eventual and possible backgrounds.

Tentatively the next step is to add the characters, hiding behind the lightning, or split in half with one side illuminated and other embodying silhouette, or full light or not. In concept the story is the concepts of the previous stories, to be presented a-front the covers; we see into the climes and atmosphere and the sources and destinations of power, the reflections of a split simultaneous view exposed and shaded by the light while surviving strikes to balance introspection, multiple covers and combining personas in a stormy restructuring of retrospective and ambition, the dealings with losses in examination of perspectives where the aspects of a psyche wholly consume itself, the journey to recognition of what that creates, what it involves, who it invites, and who it serves, and conceptually the same is true.

Additionally, those most humanly fated interpretations to the seven conflicts made difficult by introductory cause it isn't written yet, those characters having yet to reveal themselves from the very shadows of time, the known and unknown darknesses of our existence.

Have some Jungian shadow quotes, he is often overlooked in psychology imho due to his clarity, a general support of individuality, and admission that groupthink is animalistic and parasitic; ...and enjoy my sketch I scanned and modified.

"Filling the conscious mind with ideal conceptions is a characteristic of Western theosophy, but not the confrontation with the shadow and the world of darkness. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." ~ The Philosophical Tree (1945). In CW 13: Alchemical Studies. P.335
"The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge." ~ Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14
"Whenever contents of the collective unconscious become activated, they have a disturbing effect on the conscious mind, and contusion ensues. If the activation is due to the collapse of the individual’s hopes and expectations, there is a danger that the collective unconscious may take the place of reality. This state would be pathological. If, on the other hand, the activation is the result of psychological processes in the unconscious of the people, the individual may feel threatened or at any rate disoriented, but the resultant state is not pathological, at least so far as the individual is concerned. Nevertheless, the mental state of the people as a whole might well be compared to a psychosis." ~ The Psychological Foundation for the Belief in Spirits (1920). In CW 8: The Structure and Dynamics of the Psyche. P.595
"Unfortunately there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it. Furthermore, it is constantly in contact with other interests, so that it is continually subjected to modifications. But if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected." ~ Psychology and Religion (1938). In CW 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East. P.131
"We know that the wildest and most moving dramas are played not in the theatre but in the hearts of ordinary men and women who pass by without exciting attention, and who betray to the world nothing of the conflicts that rage within them except possibly by a nervous breakdown. What is so difficult for the layman to grasp is the fact that in most cases the patients themselves have no suspicion whatever of the internecine war raging in their unconscious. If we remember that there are many people who understand nothing at all about themselves, we shall be less surprised at the realization that there are also people who are utterly unaware of their actual conflicts." ~ New Paths in Psychology (1912). In CW 7: Two Essays on Analytical Psychology. P.425

"Taking it in its deepest sense, the shadow is the invisible saurian tail that man still drags behind him. Carefully amputated, it becomes the healing serpent of the mysteries. Only monkeys parade with it." ~ The Integration of the Personality. (1939).
