Body maps of hallucinations, Hate days and a one-line drawing of Christ
Why? Because life just pours through our hands
THERE ARE ONLY FRAGMENTS
“There is no complete life. There are only fragments. We are born to have nothing, to have it pour through our hands.” ― James Salter, Light Years

VISUAL BODY MAPS OF HALLUCINATIONS
These illustrations were created by psychologists and depict the sensations which arise during hallucinations in people experiencing psychosis. They are fascinating and haunting.
Is a Hate Day really necessary?
After explaining “Hate Day” wasn’t a holiday where I hate everything on purpose, but rather a day each week when I lump together all the tasks that steal my energy to knock them out in one long, extended punch, he quickly replied — “Oh, we have a term for that in German — ‘Kleinscheiss Tag!’ — it means ‘little shit day.’”
I’m leaning towards NO. Why create for yourself one miserable day? I have a rule that I only schedule one errand/energy-sucking task per day — if that. One by one, my responsibilities slowly get completed.
IMAGE OF CHRIST MADE FROM A SINGLE LINE
I am transfixed. See the engraving in its entirety here.
He said I treated thoughts as if I generated them myself, but in his view thoughts were like animals in the forest, or people in a room, or birds in the air, and added, "If you should see people in a room, you would not think that you had made those people, or that you were responsible for them."
It was he who taught me psychic objectivity, or the reality of the psyche. Through him the distinction was clarified between myself and the object of my thought.
He confronted me in an objective manner, and I understood that there is something in me which can say things that I do not know and do not intend, things which may even be used against me. (Jung, 1965, p.183)
