Abstract

C.G. Jung defined the concept of a collective unconsciousness (CU). Fundamentally, Jungian archetypes of the unconscious may be understood as quantum electrodynamic (QED) patterns that exist at deep levels of human individual and collective psyche. Unlike the concepts of Sigmund Freud, comparative research demonstrates that Jungian dream therapy—which is based on archetypal dynamics—accords with the most recent research in the field of neurolinguistics. Archetypal dynamics of the collective unconsciousness have direct applicability to research on sentience in a quantum electrodynamic field according to quantum field theory (QFT). Increasingly in today's science that which has been considered unconscious must be understood as “sentient.” Before Freud and Jung, science did not contemplate the unconscious because a “nullity” cannot be measured.

Background

The units of analysis used in this research were selected publications that appear in the website search engine of the scientific electronic library http://elibrary.ru/. This resource has been selected because it supports the system of the Russian Science Citation Index. In addition, access to the resource is free.

The following parameters were set to search for the word “archetype” in the title during the 2015-16 years of publication. Because the term “archetype” is a marker for content. Indication of the term in the title underlines its importance for the text and suggests the relevance of the concept in the publication. Of course, a more thorough of content would entail the use of the term throughout the text, but the elibrary.ru system is not always open access. Often, the full texts of the publications are available only for a fee, and in many cases only the output data are available. In this context, and in view of the already mentioned limited resources, it was decided to focus on the title search, thus leveling the search procedure and equalizing all publications to a certain extent.

With these constraints, the analysis of publications that appeared in the elibrary.ru search engine was undertaken. On the 31 of January in 2017 in response to a request by the word “archetype” in the title of the publication over the years 2015-16, 320 positions were displayed. Further study revealed 5 redundancies. For some reason the 5 publications were included - for example, the article “The archetype of fish in Russian culture” (Oshchepkova). Thus, 315 unique pieces were found.

The subjects of these publications are diverse and extensive. In order to achieve a rough systematization, the whole array was divided into conditional sections. Publications themes were categorized on the basis of key concepts involved in the titles. Again because of the already indicated unavailability of full texts for evaluating a significant part of the material, additional analysis of the output data release was conducted only in the case of thematic ambiguity (as for example: Tikhonov). Finally, the following statistics were obtained:
