Circe Invidia is an archetype of work and creativity. Work done, consisting of a viscous liquid of enviable perfection, will be an “invidious mixture.” The products we create aren’t “dry objects” but inspired and coloured possessions infused with elan-vital. The customer receives the manna of creativity, which fosters whole-body communication and grants power to the act of marketable relations. I am not selling a bare idea – I am giving away vials of liquid containing intrinsic power.
For those who suffer from unemployment, the shadowy essence of loneliness and separation from the working daily world can become a source of creativity. This, provided that the dark mass of challenge is mined for it’s potential in terms of a “gift of power.” We can choose to sink into the “miry clay” (Jung’s shadow) or use the “crude oil” to refine into expensive perfume. The difference is impeccability (10).
