Track Name: Mirroring the Imaginary
During the ages of 6-18 months, one is fascinated by having the ability to recognise one’s own image in any reflective surface. As one tries to control and play with it, the love for one’s own body image precedes the love for others. Subsequently, one feels alienated due to the realisation that one is a separate entity to the mother figure.

These reflective processes are believed to be responsible for human characteristics such as self-consciousness, self-distortion, rivalry, jealousy, aggressiveness and narcissism.
Track Name: A Place for Shadows
Carl Jung referred to the entirety of the unconscious as the shadow self and believed that it is the store of everything one is not fully aware of during waking life. It represents aspects of the personality that one chooses to repress or ignore due to shame or embarrassment, thus allowing one to conveniently function in society.

Only when one has learned to recognise, confront and integrate aspects of the hidden shadow twin may one be truly in control of their behaviour, preventing unconscious material from ever erupting uninvited into conscious life.
Track Name: Menagerie
'Loss of instinct is the source of endless error and confusion'
- Carl G. Jung
Track Name: The Eternal Onlooker
Upon recognition of one’s Self one is immediately and forever subject to feelings of separation and alienation. These feelings are unavoidable and untrascendable, as the existence of the unconscious never diminishes.
