Of London Bondage

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 12:38 PM

“After years in hiding, latex fashion re-emerged in the late 1950s,
thanks to the British designer John Sutcliffe, who created the world’s
first catsuit – the prototype rubber-fetish garment. …

The 1960s British spy series The Avengers was monumental
in bringing rubberwear to the masses. The show’s feminist heroine,
Emma Peel (played by Diana Rigg), was styled in a latex, Sutcliffe-
inspired catsuit. With Peel as a media archetype, latex’s second-skin
look wasn’t just sexy, it was superhuman.

Sutcliffe capitalised on the obsession with his products, and founded
AtomAge Magazine in 1972. The periodical, filled with artful and erotic
bondage imagery, gained a huge following among fetishists, and made
quite the splash on London’s progressive fashion scene. ”

Eternal Recreation

Filed under: General,Geometry — Tags: , , , , , — m759 @ 3:17 AM

Memories, Dreams, Reflections
by C. G. Jung

Recorded and edited By Aniela Jaffé, translated from the German
by Richard and Clara Winston, Vintage Books edition of April 1989

From pages 195-196:

“Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is:
‘Formation, Transformation, Eternal Mind’s eternal recreation.’*
And that is the self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all
goes well is harmonious, but which cannot tolerate self-deceptions.”

* Faust , Part Two, trans. by Philip Wayne (Harmondsworth,
England, Penguin Books Ltd., 1959), p. 79. The original:

                   … Gestaltung, Umgestaltung, 
  Des ewigen Sinnes ewige Unterhaltung….

Jung’s “Formation, Transformation” quote is from the realm of
the Mothers (Faust Part Two, Act 1, Scene 5: A Dark Gallery).
The speaker is Mephistopheles.

See also Prof. Bruce J. MacLennan on this realm
in a Web page from his Spring 2005 seminar on Faust:

“In alchemical terms, F is descending into the dark, formless
primary matter from which all things are born. Psychologically
he is descending into the deepest regions of the
collective unconscious, to the source of life and all creation.
Mater (mother), matrix (womb, generative substance), and matter
all come from the same root. This is Faust’s next encounter with
the feminine, but it’s obviously of a very different kind than his
relationship with Gretchen.”

The phrase “Gestaltung, Umgestaltung ” suggests a more mathematical
approach to the Unterhaltung . Hence

Part I: Mothers

“The ultimate, deep symbol of motherhood raised to
the universal and the cosmic, of the birth, sending forth,
death, and return of all things in an eternal cycle,
is expressed in the Mothers, the matrices of all forms,
at the timeless, placeless originating womb or hearth
where chaos is transmuted into cosmos and whence
the forms of creation issue forth into the world of
place and time.”

— Harold Stein Jantz, The Mothers in Faust:
The Myth of Time and Creativity 
,
Johns Hopkins Press, 1969, page 37
