The image of Anthropos, as symbol and personification of the universal Self, or the universal spirit we partake in with body and mind. In the form of the personal innate creative Spirit, we can perceive it as the image of the instinctual or as the spiritual drive to and the goal of individuation. In these times the archetype (the spiritual form behind the images, qualities and expressions) of the Anthropos is constellated in the collective Unconscious of humankind and seeks realization through conscious-awareness with aid of human effort. The universal Anthropos relates to Adam Kadmon, the Indian Purusha and figures of the Cosmic man. The image of Anthropos as innate Spirit has a masculine, feminine, spiritual and biological aspect that is present in each individual.
As manifested in the soul of mankind Anthropos equals the collective Unconscious-the spirit we all partake in, and in which we form sister- and brotherhood.

Cosmic Man-Adam Kadmon – Universal Spirit – Cosmic Christ
Hindu parallel. The Purusha–as Cosmic man–out of whose being all is created. Purusha = Atman – Krishna (see his revelation in the Vishvarupa in which he embodies all the gods–or spiritual forces )-Atman in all –Vivekanda
I am who I am
In the beginning, this was Self alone, in the shape of a person (Puruṣa). He looking around saw nothing but his Self (Atman). He first said, “This is I”, therefore he became I by name.
Anthropos –a body (of elements & forms–archz ) of Spirit—driven by VBPL-to make a spiritualized biological human…recognizable when qualities are –personified in –androgyne -animal /spiritual human (semi god—theriomorph)
The image of Anthropos, as symbol and personification of the Self. As form of innate creative Spirit we can perceive it as the image of the goal of individuation. In these times the archetype (the spiritual form behind the images, qualities and expressions) of the Anthropos is constellated in the collective Unconscious of mankind and seeks realization through conscious-awareness with aid of human effort. The image of Anthropos can be perceived as a personification of the collective Spirit we all partake in, whether we are conscious of it or not. As such it has masculine, feminine, spiritual and biological features that are present in each individual.
The Anthropos is like the all-pervading and permeating Spirit, as the collective Unconscious-as the main Archetype which contains all the other archetypes. In this Spirit (also depicted as the Cosmic Christ) all members of humankind are connected. The goal of individuation, is becoming conscious of as much as we can of this ‘body’ of archetypes until one experiences consciously the Self as an entity in itself with properties of its own. By this effort, one makes a personal unique relationship to the Self-the living creative Spirit within.
On one hand the Unconscious is collective on the other to degree one is consciously connected to it, its is personal. The Atman as cosmic and personal Spirit of the Indian religion–the manifested aspect of the Supreme Divinity Brahman
The archetype of the Anthropos is described and depicted- certain aspects- as the Primordial Man-Great Man of Light-Cosmic Man-Adam Kadmon-Cosmic Christ-inner Christ-Atman -the Self in Hinduism. Malkuth–Sunwoman.
In the beginning this was Self alone, in the shape of a person (Puruṣa). He looking around saw nothing but his Self (Atman). He first said, “This is I”, therefore he became I by name.
A strong feature of the conscious Individual
We can perceive the image of Anthropos as the image of the instinct (the way of nature) of individuation-therefor individuation can be called a religious instinct…a living form..inner living spiritual activity…when called into life by ego-effort…from bio and spiritual aspect.;
Anthropos as inner spirit seeks realization-can be perceived as a living Spirit-reacting and responding to to ego-life activities, attitude and direction—-or as image of the instinct of individuation–biological realm does not go well for the latter. Because Both invade the conscious with content–structuring psychic ability, guiding it towards a whole fo conscious and unconscious psychic life…. seeking the conscious-aware individual
These days the archetype of the androgynous Anthropos (Spiritual complete Human) is constellated -and the sexual -spiritual principles-seek to be re-united consciously with aid of a willing individual. In mystical language-the return of Sophia sunken in matter; the wandering Shekinah to be returned to the Spiritual masculine counterpart by re-collecting associated sparks of light in creation-assembling conscious light.
Anthropos –as collective Self –mankinds groupsoul—an image of the bond uniting all man-,or of inter-human Eros-a feeling bond-the preconscious ground ofall communication and community among man. A Self in others–seeking an objective indivdiual relation to others. To be creatively constellated and conscious in th eindivdiual human being.(von Franz-Jung myth in our time 138)-Anthropos as an image of the Self–the greater inner personality which lives in every human being–and in the collective. The cosmic man.
…..which we experience as the archetype of the Self (and contains all the other archetypes).
Anthropos as cosmic Christ–(ExL)—JC love truth–symbol of realized -being a conscious part of the renewed Spirit – by this conscious light –in man -A universal Spirit (Symbol)-of the Divine -Collective Universal because we ll partake in it–it– connects all people–And for the individual –a personal relationship–to the SS behind its creativ eexpression by E X L (Christ Logos with Eros in it) like the yin contains the yang–a binding Spirit for all.
