"Jung's "analytical psychology" in many ways schematically mirrors
ancient Gnostic mythology, particularly those of Valentinus and the
'classic' Gnostic doctrine described in most detail in the Apocryphon

responsible for the rescue and preservation of the "Jung Codex", part
of what would later be recognized as the Nag Hammadi libary.

- Hello fellows:
I've been off-list for some time. One reason is that
I've been looking after an early Mythopoeic personage,
Jon Lackey. He was the producer of the "Greater
Trumps" masque that was mounted at
the second Mythcon in 1971. He had been in ill health
for much of this previous year.
I'm sorry to report that he passed away on February
26th of cancer.
He was an enormous influence on my life, as well as
many others. He was involved with the very
first campaign to produce a film of "Rings" in 1957.
A major contributor to the SCA, LASFS, a tutor and
mentor to many, RenFair performer, artist, sculptor,
costumer, composer, and so much more.
Please pass this information on to anyone who might
have known him, and have them contact me
as regards a planned memorial.
