death is an important interest, especially to an aging person. A categorical question is being put to him, and he is under an obligation to answer it. To this end he ought to have a myth about death, for reason shows him nothing but the dark pit into which he is descending. Myth, however, can conjure up other images for him, helpful and enriching pictures of life in the land of the dead. If he believes in them, or greats them with some measure of credence, he is being just as right or just as wrong as someone who does not believe in them. But while the man who despairs marches toward nothingness, the one who has placed his faith in the archetype follows the tracks of life and lives right into his death. Both, to be sure, remain in uncertainty, but the one lives against his instincts, the other with them.

Jung (1959) about Archetype, the myth of Dying

Answering the question why the focus on death, Jung replies: “Not to have done so is a vital loss. For the question … is the age-old heritage of humanity: an archetype, rich in secret life, which seeks to add itself to our own individual life in order to make it whole.” 

Older we get, more profound is our relationship with our psyche, or . Jung translates the Greek “pistis”, the New Testament “faith” as “trust”, emphasising the importance of developing the trust in the psyche, trusting the of the psyche’s timings, using the dream work to develop a relationship with the Self. Tending dreams, and acting on their guidance, respecting intuitions and synchronicities, one gains confidence to face the death. 

The Tibetans have elaborated the “art” of dying well, within their ancient text: the Tibetan book of Living and Dying.

Ancient Greek Numbers & Corresponding Letters

Have you ever wonder how the Ancient Greek Numerical system looked like? Knowing the Roman numbers (I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX X MCC ) give us an important clue, that the Ancient Greek Numerology must have had alphabetic letters assigned to a number. Manipulating numbers, for our wise anscestors, and ancient philosophers,  have also meant, the metaphysics of sounds.

When Ancient Greek Philosophers, and Pythagoras spoke of one (1), two (2), three (3), and four (4 )they also spoke of the SOUNDS.

In the ancient and medieval manuscripts, the numerals had a letter + overbars: α, β, γ

In Ancient Greek for example, 241 as 200 + 40 + 1 would have been ΣMA or 666 is written as χξϛ (600 + 60 + 6) 

Ž Č Š Đ DŽ are inserted by myself, for the comparison of the Ancient Greek Symbols and the Cyrilic letters. The Ancient Greek does not have the hard sounds of Ch, Dž, Zh.

The Tetractys symbolizes the four elements: fire, air, water, and earth

Tetractys κτισις = creation = sounding as ThISiS

The first four numbers for Pythagoras symbolize the musica universalis and the Cosmos:

1 = Unity or Monad, zero dimension (a point)

2 = Dyad, one dimension (a line of two points)

3 = Triad, two dimensions, a plane defined by a triangle

4 = Kosmos (Tetrad), a tetrahedron defined by four points

The four rows add up to ten, which was unity of a higher order or the Dekad.
