    Default This week's random Dar thought

    I haven't picked up Dar in a long while, but had meant to post this some time ago.

    The number 103 I think for some reason was important. The quote about The symbols swirling and coalescing that MS put forth as a "new" clue included the page number, which was page 103.

    There were 103 shape symbols in the strings on pages 2 and 5 of the BOS.

    If you look at the create a ring spell page, there are 46 symbols on the front of the page, and 57 on the back of the page for a total of 103. I actually think this page is a light spell, and the only page that has to be "swirled and coalesced". After that is done, you use the symbols on the very last page of the HCB to form the actual ring chant. The "Summon a Ring" page is the redemption instructions. I had an idea about the swirling, but given this is a dead puzzle, I never had a desire to try it.

    I still think this is a completely visual puzzle, and the HCB is not really a code. You have to align the symbols correctly using tracing paper to spell out the solution.

    At this stage, it is impossible to defend or justify the fact that the author of this book has failed to come forward and provide the solution or at least provide REAL guidance in the right direction. Obviously this book didn't go as he planned. Crap happens. It is his intellectual propety, and if he choses to bury it, that is his right, but given that he is well aware that there has been a loyal fan base that worked on this for years and wanted to know the solution, it is pretty lousy thing to do (lousy doesn't exactly describe it, but it is the best non-profanity I could come up with). Hopefully, this will be my last post on this enormous waste of time.

    Default bored and searching..

    The overarching goal of Jungian psychology is the attainment of Self through individuation. What is the self? Jung defines it as the "archetype of wholeness and the regulating center of the psyche." Central to this process is the individual's encounter with its psyche, and bringing its elements into the conscious, as an awakening. Humans experience the unconscious through symbols encountered in all aspects of life: in dreams, art, religion, and the symbolic dramas we enact in our relationships and life pursuits. Essential to this numinous encounter is the merging of the individual's consciousness with this broader collective through its symbolic language. By bringing conscious awareness that which is not, when unconscious elements surface, they can be integrated into consciousness.

    Jung identified the anima as being the unconscious feminine component of men and the animus as the unconscious masculine component in women. However, this is rarely taken as a literal definition: many modern day Jungian practitioners believe that every person has both an anima and an animus. Jung stated that the anima and animus act as guides to the unconscious unified Self, and that forming an awareness and a connection with the anima or animus is one of the most difficult and rewarding steps in psychological growth. Jung reported that he identified his anima as she spoke to him, as an inner voice, unexpectedly one day.
