(Depression, writes J. Gray ... required the group, actually demanding a larger group to work out his insatiable appetite for controls. Further, as we have been saying, man was very much more dependent upon psychological "income" in comparison with material subsistence. However, fear accompanied him on his widest and wildest searches. Contrary to the speculations of Hobbes and markedly against John Locke, ...

43. Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi, "Freud's Moses" [Aeon Journal $]
... , W. Wundt, Wilhelm Reich, William McDougall, Eugene Bleuler, and Carl Jung have held similar views. The list reads like a veritable who's who of twentieth century psychology.

... The same mental process and types of output are found everywhere. People sense fear, share it with others, and treat its symptoms by means of fable.

The fear seems to originate ... law abiding," and beautiful. Hesiod, reciting this profound truth, goes on to describe how the muses work, reminding us of a combined team for domestic propaganda and psychological warfare. As a result, all the arts and sciences have been manipulated by the muses.

... observers, believing Venus to be a primordial planet, would not notice this coincidence. Thus several simple facts can lend their weight to our theory.

In the history of religion (and what is not associated with religion in earlier times?), ... of how speculative indeed is the basis of the sciences that are concerned with our subject matter. Thereupon one may appreciate why we must concern ourselves with the simplest of logical and psychological operations in a work of the highest scientific pretensions. For example, the important idea that the Greeks and Romans named planets to correspond to the rank order of importance of the ... .
