Carl Jung, part 4: Do archetypes exist? | Mark Vernon | Opinion | The Guardian, Jun 2011
"Jung's theory of structuring principles remains controversial – but provides a language to talk about shared experience "

"Archetypes can be thought of simply as structuring principles. For example, falling in love is archetypal for human beings. Everyone does it, at least once, and although the pattern is common, each time it feels new and inimitable."

"A related feature of archetypes is that, while they shape our perceptions and behaviour, we only become conscious of them indirectly, as they are manifest in particular instances. ...: you can't experience archetypes directly but only when they are incarnated. "

Aniket Kadam on Twitter: "I'm going to wait 3 more days to have my router delivered and order it from Flipkart instead of Amazon. That speed is paid for in blood." / Twitter
“I’m going to wait 3 more days to have my router delivered and order it from Flipkart instead of Amazon.

“That speed is paid for in blood.”


The linked article includes this quote:

“‘After the incident, everyone was forced to go back to work. No time to decompress. Basically watch a man pass away and then get told to go back to work, everyone, and act like it’s fine,’ said another Amazon worker on the shift.”

'Go back to work': outcry over deaths on Amazon's warehouse floor | Technology | The Guardian
“An Amazon worker on the same shift told the Guardian: ‘Bill was on the floor for quite some time and nobody knew that time until cameras were reviewed, but in 20 minutes a worker in a nearby department saw him lying on the floor and then began radio callouts for 911. It really is unbelievable how Bill was laying there for 20 minutes and nobody nearby saw until an Amnesty worker with a radio came by.’

“The worker, who requested to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation, noted the Amnesty worker started CPR after finding Foister. Amnesty workers are Amazon floor monitors who ensure the warehouse floors are clear and reset robot units when necessary.”


“‘After the incident, everyone was forced to go back to work. No time to decompress. Basically watch a man pass away and then get told to go back to work, everyone, and act like it’s fine,’ said another Amazon worker on the shift.”
