Collective Uncouncious

This is a must watch short documentary on the great Carl Jung regarding human identity. Its just around 20 minutes long but is very informative and to the point. The main thing I want to point out is Jung's most famous theory "the collective unconscious." Jung argugues that we as humans share a history that no matter where we are from we share common ideas and behavior patterns through the collective unconscious. These commons ideas are past down through history, religion and culture; it is this collective unconscious that leads  human beings around the world to adobt similar behaviour patterns without even realizing it.

  1. Ahhh, Jung. He had some very interesting theories but sadly, very few held strong. On the flipside, his ideas did stem a good number of other, well-recognized theories today.
