013 – living archetypes – Tanit Phoenix

please visit neopangaia.com – the adult mmorpg/virtual planet earth

this project is all about archetypes.. living them.. manifesting them.. and virtually exploring them. as the developer of the game i myself am exploring an archetype (nyarlathotep to be specific) my background previously can be found at facebook/neopangaia

but who inspires ME not the personal sort of inspiration i get from random folks.. but simply.. what sort fit into strange un specified archetypes..

like woody allen? What people represent the complex and difficult to describe archetypes we all have in our subconscious? Tanit Phoenix is our first recipient of the “Living Archetype” award why after the break. No it’s not for anything more than an active interest in quantum physics and humanitarian work.. really.

now i need to find a smoking hot nuclear physicist like in the movies.. jk

  1. Tanit is an amazing woman, as I have read to date. She truly embodies the spirit of a worldy, enlightened and compasionate woman who has not only worked closely with wild animals, she studies hypnotherapy, the Quantum mind, medinical plants and self sustainable living, and she is very spiritual. I would love to meet her.

    • over the years i have met many people in places like new york, london, tampere, shanghai, dallas, and they came from every part of the world. people that seem to inhabit an archetypal ideal.

      these things are not talents or gifts or even insights, but simply CHOICES about what we do with our time , money, and energy.

      if even ONE (extra) percent of “average” american teens decided to simply MOVE to another country and stay there for at least five years.. marry there.. the world would change in one generation. alas life is not always this way.

      but some folks inspire with the choices they make of their time and energy.. not simply on the physical level (ie volunteering) but the mental and spiritual as well.

      what the outcome of those choices.. and who they choose to make their journeys through reality with say volumes.

      i hunt inspiration and if i can pass it on with choice, then so be it. thanks for commenting.. so few do (strangely enough since i will be transitioning this site content to subjective as opposed to objective in the very near future)

  2. i totally agree.. but why stop at meeting her? that’s the point i suppose, that i was trying to make. why not explore how to manifest those interesting qualities in your own life as well. in any event, totally agree with you there.
