Psychology and philosophy of Spirit, Soul and Body.
Information of this page can interest psychoanalysts and psychotherapists, and also all people who are interested in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. Because knowledge about soul and spiritual essence of human personality is necessary for understanding of personal psychology in a context of scientific psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
People perceive world reality by means of physiological sense organs and
psychological parameters of consciousness. Joint perception of world reality by
feelings and consciousness forms psycho-physiological complex of human
personality or otherwise to tell psycho-physiological body of a man.
The world reality is formed by global or otherwise to tell fundamental categories which have resulted from process which from the view point of modern astrophysics is initial impulse or big explosion of creation as a result of which there was actual Universe. Therefore human consciousness and physiological sense organs perceive global world categories which form Universe. But also human personality consists of global world categories.
Energy, matter, space and time form psycho-physiological body which is "clay" or otherwise to tell created of terrestrial ash. But global categories of movement and life form human spirit according to which clay body is capable to move and live, that corresponds with words which are written in the Bible in the book of Genesis: "The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being".
Namely four global categories form psycho-physiological human body which does not possess movement and life, or otherwise to tell is motionless and lifeless. And two global categories form human spirit owing to which personality becomes alive soul or living being.
As a result of connection of movement and life with energy, matter, space and time, and in essence as a result of interaction of human spirit with psycho-physiological body there is formation of soul. Or otherwise to tell there is formation of psycho-physiological essence which is soul of a man.
In the Chinese religious philosophy to Christian concepts of BODY, SPIRIT and SOUL there correspond words TAO TE CHING which are the name of ancient book which describes mystical doctrine of Lao-tzu or the founder of philosophical concepts of Taoism. Modern researchers of ancient culture and philosophy of China incorrectly translate Chinese hieroglyphs, that is the reason of doubtful understanding of mystical values and esoteric senses which are meanings of words TAO TE CHING, and also it is the reason of incorrect understanding of philosophical concepts of Taoism.
Valid esoteric values of Chinese hieroglyphs TAO TE CHING are equivalent to concepts of BODY, SPIRIT and SOUL in Christian philosophy.
TAO is psycho-physiological BODY which is formed by energy, matter, time and space.
TE is SPIRIT which is formed by movement and life.
CHING is SOUL or psycho-physiological essence arising of interaction of SPIRIT with BODY.
Realization or evolution of SOUL executes as a result of spiritual changes which are named as I CHING.
I is changes.
CHING is SOUL or psycho-physiological essence of human personality.
Hence, the name of Chinese Book of Changes I Ching can be translated as "change of soul". Such translation of Chinese hieroglyphs allows to understand correctly not only semantic meanings but also mystical sense which is included in books I Ching and Tao Te Ching. And also such translation allows to understand philosophical concepts of Taoism and many other notions or ideas of Chinese philosophy.
It is possible to tell that 64 hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes I Ching are logic symbols which allow to see and understand variety of phenomena which occur as a result of development of human SOUL and evolutional interaction of SPIRIT with BODY.
Human spirit descends from aeons of perfect pleroma, and psycho-physiological body has formation in spheres of imperfect and discrete worlds. But psycho-physiological body has formation in the image and likeness of the primary perfect man which exists in aeons of perfect pleroma. And also psycho-physiological body has formation in the material reality of physical world. As a result there is creation of psycho-physiological essence or soul of human person which reaches in all four levels of world reality.
From the view point of analytical psychology of C. Jung in the imperfect and discrete worlds, and also in the material reality there is formation of four mental functions of human person. Namely formation of functional psychological properties according to which human person possesses intuitive, sensory, logical and ethical perception of global categories of world reality.
Intuitive and sensory functions - perception of space and time.
Logical and ethical functions - perception of matter and energy.
Intuitive and sensory perception of world reality are adjacent irrational mental functions which correspond with different hemispheres of a brain.
Logical and ethical perception of world reality are adjacent rational mental functions which too correspond with different hemispheres of a brain.
Ratio of mental functions with different hemispheres of a brain corresponds to the discrete level of universe, and also to the material reality of physical world where dual forces of division operate and psycho-physiological human body is polarized. Because adjacent mental functions are polar and deny each other.
Look detail information about mental functions of a brain and Jungian analytical psychology on pages of this website in section which has the name of right and left face. Or in section which has the name of analytical physiognomy. And also in section which has the name of transactions where charts of psychological interrelations of mental functions of human personality are shown.
Basic postulate of Jungian analytical psychology is the statement that common display of adjacent mental functions is attribute of a primitive state of spirit. Namely if adjacent mental functions are expressed equally then human personality possesses not developed psychological properties.
Such statement corresponds to laws of discrete world, but is wrong from the view point of Gnostic Christian philosophy, because human spirit and godlike image of the primary perfect man have origin from aeons of perfect pleroma where dual contradictions of global categories are absent.
Spirit possesses life and movement, that in the context of Jungian analytical psychology corresponds to psychological characteristics which correspond with different hemispheres of a brain and according to which human person can has extroversion or introversion. But actually primary idea of imperfect levels of world reality counteracts the man, that is the reason of contradictions of human personality.
It is possible to tell that the life and movement are indivisible, but human person in the discrete world is polarized and consequently can be extroverted or introverted.
Also it is the reason of contrast contradictions between men and women, because global category of life has greater force in the left hemisphere which is dominating area of a brain at men. And movement prevails in the right hemisphere which dominates over women.
Therefore in a context of ancient religions there was notion that women possess imperfect or otherwise to tell defective spiritual essence. Because prince of imperfect world initially possessed movement which allowed to create world reality, but he did not possess global category of life. And only when the life has been shown then in the imperfect world there was origin of being image of the living man.
Therefore apostles spoke to Jesus Christ that Maria Magdalena cannot be his disciple, that is written in 114 paragraph in the apocryphal Gospel of Thomas.
In particular apostle Peter has told: "Make Mary leaves us, for females don't deserve life".
But Jesus has answered: "Look, I will guide her to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every female who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of Heaven".
Jungian analytical psychology has correct notion about polar mental functions which correspond with right and left hemispheres of a brain, but has no authentic understanding of human spirit. And consequently Jungian psychological conceptions do not allow to realize original psycho-physiological essence of human personality. And also in the Jungian analytical psychology there is no information on possible integration of adjacent mental functions, that is the purpose of human spirit which influences on psycho-physiological body and integrates dual forces of discrete world and by that creates soul. Because human soul arises from interaction of spirit with body, and consequently psycho-physiological essence of human personality can be transformed by spirit. Namely discrete mental functions of psycho-physiological body can be integrated into a single whole, that conducts to realization or otherwise to tell evolutional development of human soul.
Because in the apocryphal Gospel of apostle Thomas in 22 paragraph it is written: "When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer, ... and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, ... one image in place of two images, then you will enter the kingdom of Heaven".
And also in the apocryphal Gospel of Thomas in 106 paragraph it is written: "When you make the two into one, you will become children of Adam, and when you say to mountain to move, it will move".
Or in the apocryphal Gospel of Phillip in 10 paragraph it is written: "Each one has division into its earliest origin, but those who are exalted above the world are indivisible, eternal".
Logical system of Jungian analytical psychology and in particular Brigs-Majers type indicator allows to identify 16 psychological types, that is enough for description of psychic structures of human person in which adjacent mental functions cannot be integrated. But logical system of Jungian analytical psychology is insufficient for identification of psychological types which as a result of transformation of psycho-physiological body and evolutional development of human soul possess integration of mental functions of left and right hemispheres of a brain.
And moreover 16 psychological types of Jungian analytical psychology and Brigs-Majers typology are insufficient for understanding of psychological contradictions which arise at interaction of human spirit with primary idea of imperfect world.
Therefore instead of 16 psychological types in Jungian analytical psychology it is necessary to use logical system which is full-function formal-symbolical model of human essence and corresponds with 64 hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes I Ching.
Look information about logical system of 64 psychological types on pages of this website in sections which have names analytical physiognomy and transactions.
Analytical psychology of C. Jung is similar with Chinese philosophy of Taoism which is based on the book Tao Te Ching where philosophical concepts of BODY (TAO), SPIRIT (TE) and SOUL (CHING) are described. But actually followers or esoteric adepts of Taoism possess knowledge about TAO and somewhat about TE, and do not realize CHING in full measure. As well as in conceptions of Jungian analytical psychology where basic attention is directed on psycho-physiological BODY, and also human SPIRIT is considered, but information about integration of adjacent mental functions and creation of SOUL is absent.
Because basic conception of Jungian analytical psychology and Chinese philosophy of Taoism is balancing adjustment of human spirit for the sake of proportional harmony of dual forces of world reality and harmonization of mental functions of psycho-physiological essence, that is false understanding of divine sense of a human life. Because spirit is called to transform world reality and to integrate polar mental functions into a single whole for the sake of creation and evolutional development of human soul, that is impossible if primary idea of imperfect world keeps harmony or otherwise to tell harmonious balance of dual forces.
Therefore human spirit denies global harmony, because soul as a result of harmony has no perspectives of creation and treats to action of infernal laws of imperfect world.
Processes of harmonization and integration are similar, but have essential distinctions. Human spirit has balancing adjustment in the first case, and in the second case spiritual essence has manifestation, and as a result there can be transformation of psycho-physiological body and creation of immortal soul which is free of infernal laws of imperfect world.
