Carl Jung influence on "Hair Rocket" By HAIR ROCKET

Levels of anima development Jung believed anima development has four distinct levels, which he named Eve, Helen, Mary, and Sophia. In broad terms, the entire process of anima development in a male is about the male subject opening up to emotionality, and in that way a broader spirituality by creating a new conscious paradigm that includes intuitive processes, creativity and imagination, and psychic sensitivity towards himself and others where it might not have existed previously. [edit]Eve The first is Eve, named for the Genesis account of Adam and Eve. It deals with the emergence of a male's object of desire, yet simultaneously generalizes all females as evil and powerless. [edit]Helen The second is Helen, in allusion to Helen of Troy in Greek mythology. In this phase, women are viewed as capable of worldly success and of being self-reliant, intelligent and insightful, even if not altogether virtuous. This second phase is meant to show a strong schism in external talents (cultivated business and conventional skills) with lacking internal qualities (inability for virtue, lacking faith or imagination). [edit]Mary The third phase is Mary, named for the Christian theological understanding of the Virgin Mary (Jesus' mother). At this level, females can now seem to possess virtue by the perceiving male (even if in an esoteric and dogmatic way), in so much as certain activities deemed consciously unvirtuous cannot be applied to her. As per Ken Wilber's terminology, this third phase seems to represent Up spirituality while the second phase represents Down spirituality. [edit]Sophia The fourth and final phase of anima development is Sophia, named for the Greek word for wisdom. Complete integration has now occurred, which allows females to be seen and related to as particular individuals who possess both positive and negative qualities. The most important aspect of this final level is that, as the personification "Wisdom" suggests, the anima is now developed enough that no single object can fully and permanently contain the images to which it is related.

Creation Myth

Sam lived in a suburb of Washington D.C. and was about 11 years old. He used to ride his bike up and down the street and sometimes circled the house of a girl he liked, Charlotte. Sam also lived close to another boy named Ricky, a rich asshole, raised by maids. No one really considered him a friend but on boring days after school it beat being alone. When you knocked on Ricky’s door Mrs. Tucker, a 500 hundred pound African-American, dressed in a white nurses uniform, shouted Ricky’s name with no volume control.

One day Sam went into Ricky’s room and the door was suddenly slammed shut and standing completely naked with a napkin over his penis held by a rubber band Ricky demanded “who am I?””open the door” Sam said scared. ”who am I........I’m an Indian.”

Another Day riding his bike to a baseball field to launch a home-made rocket Sam past Charlottes house and he saw her standing outside. She was an adopted unattractive half Guatemalan and decided to accept Sams invitation to see the rocket. Setting up the missile on the pitchers mound Sam followed the wires back to home plate ready to detonate it. He threw the switch and waited for smoke and fire to fill their eyes and thrill them but nothing happened. Following the wires back to the mound he checked the connections. As his fingers carefully adjusted the tiny engine he heard laughter. Turning he sees Ricky at home plate talking to Charlotte. “You know Charlotte last night Sam and I were in my tent and I asked him to be in my rubbers club” Ricky turns the switch on the detonator and a quick fire consumes Sams left hand fusing his index finger to his middle.

When Sam got back from the hospital his mother let him watch cartoons on the couch. The door bell rang and she answered it. He felt relieved to hear her say good bye and shut the door. Checking Sams bandages his mother put something down next to him and left the room. After a while Sam looked down to see that Charlotte had returned to him the bits and pieces of rocket remains.
