the original premise is a question. i think you give Jung credit for too much influence to the conclusion.

If the world is a reflection of our internal world, then the context that form my opinion, (experience), will influence my world view and my bias internal context will censor conflicting context that may challenge my internal view.

attributed to Mark Twain, " "it's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled"

concluded that i can not change. however knowing this, i can re-evaluate the exterior context and alter my view.

in fact, every one will do this after a new traumatic experience.


also because i find this subject interesting, not because i know anything about it.

i want to know how the public mind establishes context and conclusion.

our experience can be manipulated, out context may be propaganda more than experience as a public mind. and we want to 'fit in with our peers and neighbors, so we will hide our true thoughts and then hide the thoughts from our self as well.

and i could go on. . . .

thank you
