#32 - Coronavirus & Jordan Peterson's Secret Origin Story Logos Soup

    • Philosophy

Every generation faces its own existential anxiety; Carl Jung's generation witnessed a world at war, Jordan Peterson's was haunted by visions of nuclear holocaust, and Americans in 2001 were scared by a newfound vulnerability to terror. Today, the Coronavirus is forcing our species into consciousness regarding its own biological vulnerability, and the dangers of genetic engineering, drug-resistant disease, and global travel. This pandemic will linger in our Collective Unconscious for years to come; and like in an infected cell, our DNA will never be the same again.
