The Other way

The Opposite Direction

weist aus der Idealwelt des Ichs und der normativen Umwelt in das unbewusste «Schattenreich».

After C. G Jung

Die Persona (lat. Maske) ist der repräsentative, nach außen gerichtete Aspekt des Ich-growhowBewusstseins. Durch seine Persona versucht der einzelne Mensch, im sozialen Raum ein mit seinen Ich-Idealen übereinstimmendes Bild seiner Persönlichkeit darzustellen. So dient die Persona meist auch der Anpassung an die soziale Umwelt, insoweit wie man zumindest nach außen hin ein Sozialverhalten zeigen möchte, das den dort geltenden Werten und Normen entspricht.

Der Schatten ist gewissermaßen der Gegenpol zur Persona. Zum Schatten gehören au 8Persönlichkeitsbereiche und Verhaltensweisen, die eben gerade nicht dem eigenen Ich-Ideal und in der Regel auch nicht den expliziten Werten des sozialen Umfelds entsprechen.

Da sich das Ich-Bewusstsein meist ungerne diesen «dunklen Seiten» der eigenen Persönlichkeit zuwendet, wird die Ausagierung der eigenen Schattenseiten meist zuerst durch das soziale Umfeld gespiegelt und konfrontiert.

berlin a23Der Schatten ist Teil des Ich-nahen persönlichen Unbewussten und setzt sich aus all jenen, mit den bewussten Identifikationen des Ich unvereinbaren Aspekten, Neigungen und Eigenschaften eines Menschen zusammen. Solange keine bewusste Auseinandersetzung des Ich mit der Vielzahl unbewusster Schattenseiten stattgefunden hat, werden diese typischerweise nur bei anderen Menschen gesehen.

Mehr als andere neigen Konformisten dazu, autoritäre «Scheiterhaufen» zu errichten, «Ketzer» zu verfolgen, Andersdenkende zu vernichten.

George M Grow Jr, GrowHow, George GrowDie Auseinandersetzung mit dem Schatten, d. h. dessen Integration durch Bewusstwerdung, zurückgenommene Ausagierung oder Wandlung, stellt einen wichtigen und unabdingbaren Schritt auf dem Weg zur Ganzwerdung oder Individuation der Persönlichkeit dar.

The Other Direction Sociological

berlin14aThe fundamentally positive principle of meritocracy – according to which ideally  every person in a society is assigned to the position they deserve and is rewarded accordingly – has turned into a vulgar form of Darwinism in which measurable productivity is the central, if not the only criterion of the “ideal person”.

(George Grow, Rome 5/2019)

Under this impression, GrowHow, George Grow, Kattia Watson & Partners are dedicated to replacing “productivity” with “evolution”, the meaning of life, in all areas of life and not just in the business sector, which includes culture, politics, art and not least spirituality in place of religion and heralds the “other way”.

The Opposite Way – Out of the World of Ideologies

1 (1) We still live under the indomitable influence of ideologies, the vast majority is still satisfied with simple answers such as capitalism, socialism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism or nihilism. These are neither logical nor they are compatible. The consequence for anyone intelligent is that they take the opposite way in order to come closer to complexity, fulfillment, life, liveliness, the whole truth.

The same happened to the Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard. His report The Cellar sets in the morning, when the sixteen-year-old high school student spontaneously decided on  Thomas-Bernhard+Der-Kellerhis way to school to escape from his hated, seemingly pointless life by taking “the opposite direction”. He takes an apprenticeship in the cellar, a grocery store – as well as the liberating and at the same time stabilising feeling of leading “a useful existence” and to participate in life. In the cellar, on the edge of the Scherzhauserfeldsiedlung in Salzburg, Austria, which is the the run-down ghetto of the aborted, asocials and criminals, Bernhard meets all the outcasts of society, learns to understands them and sides with those lost, disturbed existences.

With that, Bernhard came close in his own way to the meaning of life, as it was supposed to open up to me.

Staedtebeschimpfungen von Thomas BernhardBernhard’s story is reminiscent of the Hollywood classic Irma la Douce and the scene in which Jack Lemon in the role of the young policeman Nestor Patou is asked how it is possible that he, an honorable citizen, lives in the Rue Casanova, in the red-light district of Paris under whores, criminals and corrupt colleagues. Nestor’s answer:

Indeed, filthy, daring and disreputable, but alive.

Too much he feared the Kafkaesque transformation into an insect, to be eaten up by his everyday life and to sink into self-negation, self-humiliation and repression of reality.

a79 The opposite direction is a central theme of many writers. With Ingeborg Bachmann we encounter it with the retreat from life and the cultivation of feelings; Robert Musil’s protagonist Ludwig takes a “vacation of life” in order to rid himself of the “interrelation of things”.

Also in my literature and in the works that have come into being around them and my  musil philosophy, the opposite direction plays a central, if not the central role. Generally speaking, it is about the reclamation of complexity, liveliness, of the unforeseen, the metaphysical world, the living universe, which, when we ask it, answers as a whole. The protagonists who choose the opposite direction are mostly outsiders, temporary outsiders or they live in a future that can cause many surprises to us.

Ways in the Opposite Direction

The peculiar thing about my philosophical and literary work is that the opposite    at 20direction does no longer appear naive, abstract and absurd, but concrete. The living cosmos is releasing its meaning, its essence and its relation to things and us humans. On my expeditions, a philosophy, a science and a cultural approach of the opposite direction has been coming into existence. If we push far enough in that direction, it can happens to us as it happened to Columbus, who, after a long journey across the vast ocean, discovered land and returned home with many unknown fruits and other treasures.

According to Grow’s theory of history “The Walk of Man and Humankind in 3 Phases”, for the time being, the final phase is the fusion of phase 1 (unity) and phase 2 (diversity) to integrality.
