Self-individualization has been interpreted because the approach during which the all-embracing Self unfolds into an enormous number of various individ­ uals, vegetation, animals and males. A comparability of different ways that the Self manifests itself within the organic and mental devel­ opmental techniques, or in a visionary picture of the undivided Self, finds an identical uncomplicated constitution of expression. The Self, the single, is represented by means of a round area, and includes a uncomplicated internal duality, the 2, making a paradox of conflicting opposites. within the undivided Self the 2 provide upward thrust to a trinity within which, despite the fact that, a quatemity is hidden. The latter expresses itself during this global because the 4 easy forces, the 4 components or the 4 major archetypes, specifying the probabilities or improvement in area and time. Self-individualization begins with the 1st visual appeal of a prime constitution of someone sub-Self. this is often the 5th uncomplicated strength, the 5th aspect. extra improvement is personality­ ized through 4 generative rules: 1st, the main of wholeness: connection and integration (being orientated to last entire or restoring wholeness); second, the main of complementarity and com­ pensation (a periodic shift among opposing influences); third, the enstructuring precept (causing the relative balance of the spatial seem­ ance of the appear structure), and 4th, the main of gesture (resulting in a steady stepwise improvement of that constitution right into a full-grown individual).

For "common" means "universal"]. Though the account is common, the many live, however, as though they had a private understanding. Fragment I might have been the opening statement of Heraclitus' presumed book. But even if it finds itself up front in an arbitrary way, it offers nevertheless a scope, a synthesis, a leading idea of logos (tou de logou), of an "everlasting plan" according to which all things happen.

The human being gathers within his or her creative forge all the strings along which a human person operates on the level of nature-life; he ties them in a knot in order to reach further into its own operational realm. With cognition/constitution geared to survival and vital praxis proper to hoi polloi, ordinary people, we slide upon the surface of the knot; we reach into it, however, and untie it for our own purposes following in the arteries of the creative act that not only draws directly upon the inner workings of life but also refashions its resources.

In short, to say "perform an operation" or "transform" - each dynamic bursting forth - means concurrently to valuate. 13 A comparison, a discriminative "weighing against each other" and establishing the "right measure" of the dynamic bursting forth is concurrent with this valuation. I would say that the constructive progress of life processing the flux and harnessing its forces means transformation, and that transformation means measure. The dynamic flux of life can be harnessed only because there are intrinsic "trading posts" for measure present in its forces and ready to negotiate.
