I finished reading Carl Jung's "Answer to Job" recently. It blew me way, to say the least. It is quite likely the most brilliant analysis of the Biblical stories (in broad strokes), ever...

I don't think many people have realized how fundamentally radical and significant it was, except for people like Edward Edinger and of course Jordan Peterson.

Very long time since I read Jung, but I was impressed at the time. What he might say about this vid, is that Adam and Eve are not an illustration of innate human moralising vs an animals lack of it. For a start you have an animal doing the teaching of morality, secondly it is taught to them and not innate. The New testament confirms this, "Be ye wise as serpents".

On the rest of the vid, he is a poor psychologist with an inadequate grasp of human behaviour. The pleasure principle is evident everywhere. If you regulate the temperature in your living space to be comfortable, that is the most simple example. Using drugs to regulate his level of arousal is the same thing and Jung would have told him to breathe into a paper bag instead.  Quite wrong suggestion Petersen makes, that we are all aesthetes.

 We eat to satiate desire, we obtain money to experience further comfort, or we may not do anything if our needs and wants are met. The terms lazy or greedy are taught. Who to and when to apply the rules to is also cultural and taught, as displayed in the bible. "Thou shalt not kill", Moses brings down from Mt Sinai is not applied to Amalekites or anyone else living in land that he wants to invade. That conditioning applies to this day, wrong for Nazi Germany, right for Israel, if you are raised to believe this. If you are not taught to favour an ingroup, it is patently inconsistent.

 Being unaware of, or ignoring the nurture side of the debate is a fundamental error, that the progeny of Frued and Adler would never endorse. The bible is written for the very purpose of imparting values for posterity, not as an impartial journal.

In a choice between spending time watching a JFP video and spending time on the Throne reading an old Spiderman comic book, I will choose the latter.  JFP is a first class imbecile.  Jung was a moron orders of magnitude greater than that, perhaps only exceeded by Freud.  lol
