Furry Fandom and the Innermost Self

Furry Fandom a therapy? Well yes it is a good point and tool to replace
a bad behavior with a better one and still be on the same plane in their
universe. And not of a lesser universe from where they felt they where!

Also it is a way to express yourself from the Deprivation Tank of a town
many might live in. So Furry Fandom is as I see it a way to express and
to be who you really are. And a needed thing!

What Furry will I be??? A Rabbit with a white fluffy tail only if my
love will be a bigger Rabbit also with a fluffy white tail as we all might
be chasing each others tails anyway. Compatible Rabbits! Healing!
And is ok to do so as the point about healing! Coming back better Humans!

Being in the Furry Fandom is not just a bunch of sex. It's about freeing the
innermost self, not staying in your confinement. It is about healing!

~~~~~Twin centers
What distinguishes Jungian psychology is the idea that there are two centers
of the personality. The ego is the center of consciousness, whereas the
Self is the center of the total personality, which includes consciousness,
the unconscious, and the ego. The Self is both the whole and the center.
While the ego is a self-contained little center of the circle contained within
the whole, the Self can be understood as the greater circle.

Perils of the Self
Von Franz considered that "the dark side of the Self is the most dangerous
thing of all, precisely because the Self is the greatest power in the psyche.
It can cause people to 'spin' megalomanic or other delusionary fantasies that
catch them up", so that the victim "thinks with mounting excitement that he has
grasped the great cosmic riddles; he therefore loses all touch with human reality.

In everyday life, the Self may be projected onto such powerful figures as the
state, God, the universe or fate. When such projections are withdrawn,
there can be a destructive inflation of the personality one potential
counterbalance to this being however the social or collective aspects of the Self.

And so the social or collective aspects of the Self as Furry Fandom!

~~~~~The Furry community
The furry community, referred to by many as furry fandom, or just the fandom,
is the virtual universe inhabited by all those who refer to themselves as "Furries."
It is a separate entity from what many fans of furry entertainment mean when they
use the term furry fandom. To a traditional furry fan, furry fandom means fans
of furry characters, period. But the community encompasses a great deal more
than just the fandom for furry characters. It includes elements of religion, lifestyle
and philosophy.

"Furriness" is the action of doing anything related to the furry character of a person.
