We think ourselves superior to ancient man. I will prove to you that we, in fact, are not.
A guy and a girl are engaged (don’t fool yourself, though I saw this in a movie, it, in fact, happens….). Her Father disappeared out at sea. He was a Lobster Man, so called in Maine. Though she and her fiance bring it up, him getting into a land profession, no decision is made in her favor.
Soon enough, she breaks off the engagement because he won’t take a land job. He feels this is what he is; A Lobster Man.
No different, we are no different than ancient man (you will see…..patience).
Let us now take a closer look at this situation; Negative thoughts, weaving a chain of logic through association. This is our makeup, configuration.
The Analyst would see that she associates the loss of her Father to her beau’s vocation. Logical, yes, clearly. As the time draws close for planning a wedding the similarities in portent loom in the horizon, and anxiety is elicited. She concludes to withdraw commitment to this union. Attached on to this is a sense of self-worth, pride. IE The merit of her proposal of getting a land job instead. This the mind lands on in order to add luster to her voice, opinion (relative to self-worth also) which also serves to diminish her anxiety (actually, it does not, it just puts distance by employing drama), staying active, doing something practical to demonstrate to her psyche that she is not “illogical”. Not dealing with portents. Yet in truth, she is, kind of, um?
A lightning bolt shoots down out of the sky and lights a fire amongst the trees. He concludes that this “god” is angry with him. He will worship, he will tender an offering to this god, be it animal or vegetable, he will worship.
The Innate Void as a drive source
The Void within impacts our Soul. The Soul contains our Psyche. The Soul contains our mind. To be exact it contains; The Mind, the Will, and the Emotions which altogether comprise our Psyche (Viola; the Soul). Now before you drop out, listen……
Were it not for our Void Innate, no negative external occurrences would have a point of reference, could not be tabulated, computed, defined. So…….
It is the Void elicited, invoked which colors the image of the girl’s beau being lost at sea, it is the presence of the Void within which colors the idea for the “ancient man” to assume the practice of a kind of “worship”.
Yes, we have indeed come a long way since ancient man.
The presence of the Void within one and all of us means, designation, appertainment, where we will all end up, where we belong. For you see, without the Life of God, Voided as we are, in fact, contracts us one and all to Oblivion, to Nothingness. and this is the Darkest Thought, ladies, and gents.
This described above is why we suffer Anxiety. Yes, this is the cause for the First Anxiety which the Analyst hopes to capture through Analysis. Hoping to ascribe it to an early event in the life of the patient. Nope, sorry will not be done, simply apples and oranges. Sure if the external event being negative serves to elicit, invoke our Void Innate the external event is not the horse but is the cart, as insignificant as that. The external event is but the “thing used by the mental process of “Association”, it is used, employed.”, The cause for anxiety (shout it from the house tops…please…) is the Void within.
This is God’s little reminder to humankind that we are a Voided, fallen creation in need of repurchase, Redemption. Stop, stop enacting Redemption Dramas to make up for your Voided State.
The posing, the breaking off of the engagement, the inventing of a form of worship for the god creating out of Void Drive, all are, and belong on the same shelf as “Superstitions”. Dramas.
Yes, we have come a long way from ancient man, and science and Psychology will deliver us, not only from anxiety but from the Innate Voided State.
