Sema, the Universal Movement

It is scientifically recognized that the fundamental condition of our existence is to revolve. There is no being or object which does not revolve, because all beings are comprised of revolving electrons, protons, and neutrons in atoms. Everything revolves, and the human being lives by means of the revolution of these particles, by the revolution of the blood in his body, and by the revolution of the stages of his life, by his coming from the earth and his returning to it.

In the symbolism of the Sema ritual, the semazen’s camel’s hair hat (sikke) represents the tombstone of the ego; his wide, white skirt represents the ego’s shroud. By removing his black cloak, he is spiritually reborn to the truth. At the beginning of the Sema, by holding his arms crosswise, the semazen appears to represent the number one, thus testifying to God’s unity. While whirling, his arms are open: his right arm is directed to the sky, ready to receive God’s beneficence; his left hand, upon which his eyes are fastened, is turned toward the earth. The semazen conveys God’s spiritual gift to those who are witnessing the Sema. Revolving from right to left around the heart, the semazen embraces all humanity with love. The human being has been created with love in order to love. Mevlâna Jalâluddîn Rumi says, “All loves are a bridge to Divine love. Yet, those who have not had a taste of it do not know!”

Psyche and Joseph Campbell and Burning Man



The Psyche of Carl Jung

The Swiss psychologist, C. G. Jung, taught that the human mind or psyche is complex and is composed of parts, much like the physical body. He coined the word “complexes” for various unconscious parts of the psyche. Complexes are the focal and nodal points of psychic life (Jacobi, 1973, p. 37). He also divided the unconscious into two distinct regions, the personal and the collective. “Whereas the personal unconscious consists for the most part of complexes, the content of the collective unconscious is made up essentially of archetypes” (Jung, 1990, p. 42).

In Jungian phraseology, the ego itself is a complex. It is the complex that is the subject of consciousness (Jacobi, 1973, p. 7). Jung also taught that the stability of the ego is relative, and far-reaching changes of personality can and do occur. These need not be pathological; they are sometimes developmental (Jung, 1978, p. 6).

The unconscious, the inner ‘environment’ of the psyche, is a different medium from the conscious. There is usually not much change in the near-to-conscious areas because of the rapid alternation between light and shadow. Jung (1973) calls this fluid area a “no man’s land” and designates it as the personal unconscious (p. 97).

A simplified model of the ego and the unconscious is shown in Figure 4. Behind the personal unconscious lies the collective unconscious which contain the archetypes. The archetypes represent the structure of a “psychic world” whose reality is seen through its effects on the conscious mind (Jacobi, 1973, p. 37). From the foregoing we can write the equality:

archetypes = psychic attractors

Phase space is the state space of a system, a mathematical abstract space used to visualize the evolution of a dynamic system (Nicolis and Prigogine, 1989). The phase space of a human being has not yet been defined mathematically, but life itself can be envisioned as a human phase space with time plotted along the x axis. Such a plot would begin at birth and end with death as a fixed attractor.

The structure of the psyche is similar to that of the physical body. According to Jung, “the archetypes are the organs of the prerational psyche” (Jacobi, 1973, p. 46). Archetypes are structures, not images. They allow for the periodic creation and dissolution of images. The archetypes have a hierarchical order. The “primary” archetypes are those that cannot be further reduced. The next in line are the “children” or “secondary” archetypes. Then come the “grandchildren” or “tertiary” until we come to those which are closest to consciousness and which have the least intensity, meaning, and numinosity or energy charge (Jacobi, 1973, p. 56).

The psyche, as a macroscopic system, can remain predictable and stable even when its main subsystem, the ego, is unstable. When the ego enters basins of instability, its trajectory through phase space becomes uncertain and multiple possibilities or accessible states become available to it. In this way, the healthy ego grows and matures in individual ways over time by learning from personal experience. If an archetypal (chaotic) attractor encountered in phase space cannot be assimilated, unhealthy states can develop. According to Jung (1990), various forms of insanity can result from the failure to assimilate such encounters.

Figure 5 shows a more complicated model. Here the center of the psyche is the self, balanced by the ego and shadow. This model illustrates the open nature of Jung’s view of the psyche. At the conscious end, the persona acts as a filter for the ego to the external

world, while at the unconscious end, the archetype of the anima-animus acts as a filter to the collective unconscious.  Figures 4 and 5 are elaborations of models presented by Jacobi (1973) and illustrate the complex dynamic nature of the psyche as defined by Jung.

Jung’s psyche functions with circular causality. The central archetype of the psyche is the self which, together with the ego, determine the order parameters of the entire psyche (biases, dispositions, likes and dislikes, values, and so on). These parameters then determine the behavior of the ego and self. The behavior of the ego can be determined from personality characteristics and traits (Jung, 1971). The behavior of the self can be determined from dreams (Jung, 1974).
