Amplification in the creative process. #WARNING might lead to the true nature of #reality

Amplification is the 3rd step in developing a creative idea using Jung’s techniques for accessing the unconscious.

Here is my example of amplification from the recent AI on the Inanna myth.

I saw a vortex appear in the sky and transport Inanna from the garden to the city in my AI. From a Google image search, Alice falling down he rabbit hole, I found an animated sequence that matched my imagination. It has the perspective of looking at the sky, lack of control, speed, and a tunnel transition from one place to another.

A friend commented that my AI reminded her of Inanna’s decent into the underworld. I focused on the tunnel image because it’s like so many  popular stories:

The urban dictionary defines “Rabbit Hole” as:

Metaphor for the conceptual path which is thought to lead to the true nature of reality.Infinitesimally deep and complex, venturing too far down is probably not that great of an idea.

In my own creative process I like to draw the spiral and I think this amplification has helped me have a better understanding of my work as well as giving me larger references on which I can expand the imagery.
