I had also started reading the last book that the great Carl Jung had input into before he died, titled ' Man and His Symbols', a book I have owned but haven't read again for about 30 years.
I started reading it again with fresh eyes (I'm still reading it at the moment) when Chris Mackey mentioned the man on the cover standing with his arms raised in the shape of the Psi symbol, which is also on the side of Mackey's book titled,
'Synchronicity: Exploring Your Life with the Gift of Coincidence'.

I wrote about Libby (and updated the post last night) at this link below -

I've also written a post about reading Chris Mackey's book at this link below to give you an idea how I stumbled across Chris and his work -

I couldn't help noticing all the symbology in the movie 'Eight' (deliberate, or otherwise) as I sat through the watching of this movie.
For instance, the movie is titled 'Eight' , because it is about an OCD patient who is being treated by a psychologist because her compulsion of cleanliness and fear of the outside world contaminating her world makes her do things eight times over, like she is caught in an infinite loop.

|The infinity symbol appears on several cards of the Rider–Waite tarot deck|
Of course, as far as symbols and numbers go 8 is considered a very lucky number in Chinese and Asian culture and I noticed in the movie that there was a large Chinese type character above the kitchen sink, not that I knew what it meant though.
Also when Libby's character makes it out to the footpath on her street we see the house number is 35 (3+5=8).
I also liked how the bottles of dish-washing liquids over the kitchen sink appeared to have dartboard's printed on them.
Dartboards always fascinate me when I see them turn up on a movie set.
But it wasn't just the symbols and eights in the movie and it's associations with the infinite I found intriguing, there were other Jungian themes in play, as well.
Like when Libby said in the Q&A after the movie that her next play for the QTC will be a post 911 themed play called Disgraced.
When I got home and was wondering
how many tickets were sold on the night for the movie screening of 'Eight', I saw there were 119 tickets sold, which is the number 911 reversed.
|Reverse 911s in 'Back to the Future' (?) a film that I felt was about the A-bomb.|
BACK TO THE FUTURE predicts 9/11
We weren't implying that the makers of this film knew about the events consciously, we were showing it on a Jungian
"Collective Unconscious" level.
But I do maintain that the BTTF trilogy carries a very obvious sub-theme about the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and growing up in the shadow of The Bomb.

|8:15 that's the time that it's always been?|
I like how the play 'Disgraced' is going to finish on Nov 6th in it's run at the Playhouse also, as that is the day after Marty travels
Back to the Future...Nov 5th...remember?-)
And of course let's not forget that Libby's birthday is the 11th of November (Remembrance Day), too.
