Archetypes: The Script in a Cosmic Roleplay
“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts…”
We are actors with a blank resume. We aspire to be heroes, villains, fighters, soldiers, revolutionaries, leaders, healers, caregivers, casanovas, thinkers, mystics, you name it. Most of us exit the stage after being less than an extra in the play of life. The stories and myths we tell ourselves display some of the roles that humanity has played since the beginning of civilisation.They represent primal archetypes. The programmes which guide the workings of the human soul.
But why are they so powerful? Why does our species have the ability to identify with the same archetypes, and personify them in such a way as to make them a reality?
Archetypes, egregores, the collective unconscious, and morphic resonance are all interrelated and intimately connected with our mental evolution towards godhood. They are explained through ontological mathematics and ensure that the universe reaches perfect symmetry at the end of a cosmic age.
Archetypes, non-mathematically, are “…underlying forms… from which emerge images and motifs such as mother, the child, the trickster…” They are symbols that manifest themselves in human existence and interaction, and are personified in us and other beings. In a sense, archetypes are Plato’s Forms. However, they are not eternal, and are composed of basic sinusoids (which are eternal) combined into more temporal complex functions.
When we think of a certain type of person, such as a jokster or bookworm rather than a specific one like your cousin John, we are in fact thinking of the archetypes. Archetypes can be seen in regards to figures from history or just people we know. This happens because all humans can unconsciously tune into the same archetypes, and as a result, express similar behaviours.
Archetypes and Morphic Resonance
Morphic Resonance is a theory produced by Rupert Sheldrake which asserts that “…natural systems… inherit a collective memory from all previous things of their kind.” He was specifically talking about material, biological organisms sharing a collective capacity for learning between themselves. However, with an ontological mathematical framework and the knowledge that we are all made of the same “stuff,” we can say that we all have access to the archetypes as such, we have a mental, mathematical method of in which we “inherit a collective memory.”

As more and more monads fully express certain archetypes, it becomes easier for others to access them too. Just as Sheldrake spoke of rats being able to navigate a maze more easily, humans will more easily be able to perform complex tasks, become smarter, and achieve divinity because of other humans who managed it before them due to their own efforts.
How do we use these Archetypes in real life?
As we we repeat the behaviours of certain archetypes, they grow stronger and attain a higher frequency, giving those who access them a better chance of performing that action better than before. Think of it this way: in America, soldiers are normally respected in public before even saying a word. Their uniform, haircut, imposing stance, and hardened demeanour automatically triggers a learned response from most people. The respect archetype is strong in these people. This applies to doctors, politicians, lawyers, you name it. To be a rational, thinking and intuitive person, you behave like Leibniz and Descartes, and you study rationalist philosophy and mathematics. To be a scientist, you study and think scientifically like Carl Sagan or Albert Einstein. Those who were exemplars of these archetypes strengthened them to an incredible degree. Those who partake of the same activities as these people, tap into the enhanced archetypes they left behind, thus speeding up overall progress.
It’s more than simply practising however. Tapping into archetypes involves a change in attitude, behaviour, and even personality in very rare cases. Could psychosis or mania be the result of a person being completely overtaken by an archetype? The Greeks thought of enthusiasm to mean being possessed by the gods themselves. Could the gods simply have been archetypes that were expressed very strongly?
Now think of it on a cosmic scale, with every conscious species accessing these archetypes. If a soul could completely express one of them, especially one that has existed within our collective unconscious for billions of years, and has a profound effect on every being it comes into contact with, how powerful could they become?
The key to gnosis is the complete integration of all unconscious content into one’s consciousness. This includes the archetypes. As we progress through our countless numbers of lives, we experience different roles and play different parts. We access different archetypes. The gods are those who have played every role, and rationally made each a part of the totality of their selves.
Because of morphic resonance, the more monads that become god, fully expressing the Abraxian archetype, the easier it becomes for the rest, until finally, the cosmic tipping point is reached, where the necessary number of gods is reached causing a chain reaction, making it easy for the rest of the monadic collective to achieve godhood. In this moment the universe immediately achieves perfect symmetry, bringing an end to the Cosmic Age.
The end point is all well and good, but what about the most powerful archetypes? What about the journey towards the tipping point and the ones we assume during it? The ones that drive and dominate existence itself? What of the Demiurge, Lucifer, and Abraxas? Are they more prevalent in our lives than we thought? Can they communicate with us directly? How could they possibly do so?
In a subsequent article I will explore this in greater detail.
