An expression of the Self. What this means is that some parts of our consciousness, such as the memory of our address, or emotion about our dog, will have many interconnections with other ideas and related feelings. We can associate the idea of address with home; room; family; food; rent; bed – and each of those with other connected ideas and feelings. Sometimes we touch a concept or feeling which has massive connections, so vast they begin to build up beyond usual levels of realisation. We might call it a mega-concept, which goes on building and generating realisations we have never made before – that is we have never made those connections before. An aura around an object, person or animal depicts this mental function. See: the self under archetypes.
