The Mythos of a Deeper Healing
In the mythos of America, the primary spy character in the literature, aside from Felix Leiter in the Bond novels, aside from him, it is Jason Bourne.
What is very interesting about Bourne is that he is trying to wake up from an amnesia and he isn’t entirely sure if the good guys are, well ‘good.” He doesn’t know who he is. He does know his capacity.
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is the long word for AIDs. AIDs attacks the immune system, the system set up to fight it.
Jason Bourne fights the system he was enlisted to support. He’s a fictional archetype, but an interesting one.
We are in the early days of Georg Groddeck’s work. He lived a century ago, yet his contribution to medicine has hardly been understood, let alone probed deeply.
He didn’t ask what a malady was. He asked why it was. That’s an extraordinarily bold question for a physician. Generally, it is hard to meet a doctor who thinks at that level.
Most doctors, due to their training, think like the Dutch boy who put his finger in the dam. They deal with the symptom – not the cause.
On a certain level, in the Bourne stories, you get this questioning of the symptoms of our mistrust.
After the terror of the sea of bombs that rained down on Vietnam and Cambodia, is such a character a surprise? Not really.
We cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.
When we look at any great power we must question what drives it.
Resolve demands discipline to bring it to formation.
The evolution of questioning our resolve, and the direction of our economic vision – it comes down, less to philosophy, and more to ecology. Ecology demands understanding of all the major fields of science, in alignment, for alignment to flourish.
