Here are stated two possibilities: the first is that man eats lion, and lion becomes man; the second is that lion eats man and man is assimilated to lion stuff – and blessed is one and accursed is the other. That is precisely the psychological issue for consciousness when the collective unconscious is activated or even when it lives itself through us unconsciously. To the extent that the ego is eaten by one of the archetypal “giants” or “lions” the human being has become inhuman; and that is a disaster (GJS - because one has become possessed via inflation or depression). On the other hand, to the extent that the experience of the collective unconscious can be assimilated and understood by consciousness, then the archetypes are humanized. This is the issue behind the “harvesting” imagery in Revelation. And it is the fundamental issue running throughout all levels of existence: Who eats whom? It is absolutely elementary for all life processes and applies not only to the physical world but to the psychological existence as well. Edinger, Archetype of the Apocalypse, p. 103


There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not? ( Robert Kennedy quoting George Bernard Shaw )
