    Is that Jung?

    yes I think of it like a target or bullseye its probably vision related, where its like the focus is inexorably lead to one point. with the cross all paths lead to the center, the point of convergence, and I think it naturally draws our attention to it... perhaps evolutionary instinct at bottom, a symbol of what it takes to survive "pay attention".. in man and his symbols they note that the cross changed where the horizontal line is lifted above center which they say was a shift in the collective unconscious, a development of the symbol itself. jung says something to the effect though that its off balance but symbolizes the attempt to elevate jesus above satan but that enantiodromia requires eventually a counterforce will result, perhaps that is the nihilism we suffer from today

    Jung sort of talks about that when he says in certain situations people are overcome by adversity and regress to a prior stage, which could be like getting to the cross scenario and not being up for it. like the businessman who loses once and never takes another chance superficially he survived but died an inner death, whereas sometimes you have to die to live; one undergoes a transformation so to speak, or rebirth which would be like the resurrection, so theres this paradoxical "loss" that gives rise to something greater. so what it means to overcome the cross becomes more than mundane "continued life" which in some sense just means death in a continued banal existence vs death which involves a transformation. so this death = bad and life = good thing becomes a paradox because failing to overcome the resistance in some sense means giving in or passing through it, which makes me think of life in general when you meet something annoying and difficult a lot of times the trick is to stop fighting it and let it in and then deal with it as it is rather than a kind of shrinking away from it

    I think thats really good, I never thought of it quite like that but it makes sense to me... I think the idea of it being like point where transcendence meets resistance and it either overcomes it and ascends or fails and dies is very interesting

    I havent studied it in depth but Ive acumulated some ideas about it, but I'm not sure what you're looking for so its hard for me to answer...

    I think in general its a product of the collective unconscious like all symbols and it has to do with coordinates and a 4 way split, which is interesting because Christianity reduced the number of Gods to 3 via the trinity but maintained the cross as a symbol.. I think quadra are reminiscent of a 4 god system, you could say they're the psychologically unifying force that binds people and dictates their fate in a Godlike manner, and is the source of their values...

    Interesting, re: Hitchcock. I think Expat typed Hitchcock as SEI btw. What do you make of that? That's why i said it seems like an outsider's perspective on Ni. Cheers

    Beware of black cats.
    At least so far so that you don't trip over them.
