What is "Vision Speak" and where did the concept come from?
Originally inspired by Jung’s theories on the collective unconscious, listening to Joseph Campbell's insights on mythology and religion further fuelled my imagination for this future capability. Since then new theories on quantum consciousness and conscious evolution have contributed to ideas for the next adventure in this series, "Vision Speak: Awakening".
Think of it as an evolution of consciousness, an ability dormant in all of us to connect with others, using the language of visions. Non-verbal communication has often been explored in literature, particularly science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction. This can be interpreted in various ways, such as: ‘reading minds’, extrasensory perception (ESP), sensing emotions, or psychic abilities.
Does this mean "reading minds"?
In this context, "Vision Speak" is NOT so much about reading thoughts, like a stream of language coming through the mind but more like a shared inner vision source, extrapolating on the work and ideas developed by Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, and others on the collective unconscious. It's amazing how common motifs and archetypes in dreams , mythology, and religions have reappeared over thousands of years across every continent and appear to be built into the human psyche. What might be possible if we were more in tune with this, were able to access this inner sense and even control it? It could be akin to projecting lucid, waking dreams - a new, universal language, at the same level as our spiritual, intuitive side.
