What happens to a trans-cultural human being after a lifetime of living between Utopia and Armageddon?
This is a depth psychological presentation with an embedded Heuristic position—as an individual human life unfolds so does cultures! The presentations main thrust explores three different future scenarios; each is viable and presents new perspectives on Psychiatry, psychosocial education as a therapeutic delivery mechanism, virtual healthcare and emerging trends in alternative medicine.
“In the last analysis, the essential thing is the life of the individual. This alone makes history, here alone do the great transformations take place, and the whole future, the whole history of the world, ultimately springs as a gigantic summation from this hidden source in individuals.”
~ C.G. Jung Civilization in Transition, CW10: 315

What are the complexes and shadows of an individual whose father was born in Germany? Ernst Glock served as a Captain in the Luftwaffe and married a Russian during WWII. Susanne Bobolovich lived through the Russian revolution and was a descendant of an assassinated aide-de-camp to Czar Nicholas II of the Romanov dynasty. This semi-autobiographical heuristic and hermeneutical inquiry explores the diverse cultural and historical background and creative response of a person that is a member of the European Community, travels on a German passport, was born in and is a citizen of New Zealand, and is now married to an American living permanently in California on a United States Green card.
What happens to a trans-cultural human being after a lifetime of living between Utopia and Armageddon—the shadow of an inevitable apocalypse (or rapture)? It hides the up rootedness, insecurity, and chaos that a terrifying and unknown future holds. When human beings forget, disavow, and disown their ancestors, race, and cultural events, they are forced to split, to go into exile, and to treat that which they do not know as the other, where the “other” is usually the enemy. The Great Wars and the slaughter of 100 million ancestors in the 20th century alone, as a result of fascism, nationalism, genocide, migration, terrorism and hatred, have torn a hole in modern culture’s heart. This has been true for me, but what comes of this?
