Obadiah: Jenova as collective unconscious

Oobie doobie thinks he can hide his ascended autism in old posts…little did he realize I needed a shitpost tonight and Final Fantasy 7 woopoasting is always on-topic.

Feels at least half-right, though I’ve never even picked up the game.
From a glance, I think Jenova is basically original sin/knowledge of good and evil/Semantics/Parietal lobe. Look at the lower part of her body, it’s the Edenic apple. Sephiroth = Racially edenic in the literal sense.
Agree re: Sephiroth, Zach/Aerith, Tifa, Cloud. Shinra Power Co. is basically an aesthetic representation of modern societal structure/secular rationalism-worshipping beehive.
Re: Lifestream, mako and materia, basically agree. Basically this:

Jenova could also be a generalized representation of the human unconscious which according to Carl Jung manifests as the “anima”. Which I think might be what you saw when you smoked pot:
“As the trip wore on, this would morph into a realistic, androgynous man with long, angular facial features and very long, dirty blond hair. (By now, I had gone through the single vomiting episode.) This homunculus was very melancholy, and neither sanguine nor smiling.”

Comment on Edenism in FF7

It’s an interesting theory, and this equivalence is certainly the metaphysics of Berserk (plz note spiral/behelit imagery). It wouldn’t be terribly surprising if FF7 and Kentaro Miura were drawing water from the same well.

Scooby Booby’s analysis of Resident Evil 4 was also excellent and worth checking out.

    It’s…. strange, this… this feeling

    I think I’m starting to see a cutie mark begin to form on my leg.

    According to Jung’s theory, during interactions with the unconscious, underwater-level elements of our psyche (which traditionally occur during dreams/sleepstate, drug trips, trance-states, etc) the male’s unconscious personality-elements tend to appear as a female figure and the woman’s unconscious personality-elements tend to appear as a male.

    This is why I think the long haired, blonde androgyne figure that you saw when you got stoned is a likely suspect, and is why I think Sephiroth was constantly going on about his “mother” (and why Jenova is a female figure).

    It could all just be beings from the Outside playing tricks on us too, though.

    Aeoli, mein bruder. You had a Vault Co torrent floating around at one stage that had a lot of Cleave’s content in it, if I recall correctly. Is it still up? Or is there any way I can access his catalogue?

    Thanks

    That Berserk comic really backs the theory up.

    “The edenic apple means ‘choice'”, said Aeoli Pera.

    “Do as you will, chosen one,” said the Edenic Apple.
