Myths, Symbols & Folklore
archetypes: "they are the primordial images which, according to the philosophy of late antiquity, exist in the unmanifest realm as prototypes or 'ideas'. Jung used the term to designate the symbolic patterns and images common to all humanity that occur in dreams as well as in myths, fairy tales, etc. Called the 'collective unconscious' or 'objective psyche', these symbols and images inform the ever-recurring fundamental structures in the development of the individual and are also manifested in imaginal form." (Herder)
