I am starting to appreciate the concept of the Daemon/Eidolon as the first recorded theory of the conscious and subconscious selves. Although the Eidolon is not the whole of the conscious mind, and the Daemon not the whole of the subconscious. I can see obvious parallels in part with Jung's collective unconscious. The iceberg of self being my way of describing the whole self with only the conscious Eidolon tip showing, whilst the larger Daemon sits seived out by the left hemisphere. This leaves the larger question of does our larger self only represent a tip of the greater whole, or an individual connected part of a group with vague but real boundaries? If and when I'm talking B*&%$££ do point it out.
