The Alchemical Psychologist says that all stories, all histories, are fictions. By the time we recall events from memory they’ve changed from travelling all those dark corridors in the mind.
Even the brightest minds can trick things around.
What’s more, our perception of events is always coloured by our ways of perceiving – our thoughts and beliefs.
My mother always told me I had my father’s duck-shit eyes. Imagine that. I’ve gone through most of my life seeing things through duck-shit eyes.
These days I prefer to think I’m looking out at the world through amber-flecked green or at the very least murky-pond…
My point is; no matter what story – its a fiction. I’ll tell you! It might be beautiful, it could be dark and twisted, but it won’t be the truth.
