C.G. Jung was sensitive to the technological transformations happening in the world around him. In various writings, he addresses what is arguably the most important question of our age: What is the effect of technology on the psyche? A question, which, he admits, "is not at all easy to answer."
The Red Book, in which the word ‘’love” appears 300 times, came into being during the unprecedented technological horror of the First World War. Jung’s later writings reverberate from the aftershock of the Second, as he looked for a way to show his readers that it is most important to understand how love brings opposites together.
Media theorist Marshall McLuhan coined the phrase “Global Village,” which was actualized in the Summer of 1967 through the first live, worldwide satellite broadcast, in which he and the Beatles were featured, and during which The Beatles performed “All You Need is Love.” Together with Jung, McLuhan, and The Beatles, we will look at how the degree of human interface with electronic communications technology can be a barometer of individual and collective consciousness.
