individuals being provided warnings , signs , symbols , or omens , which if
discerned can lead to deeper awareness and perhaps even an ability to avert a
Author: Jerome A. Kroth
Kroth uses depth psychology to develop a globally rooted psychoanalytic perspective through which he explores the psychological underpinnings of contemporary reality. By treating "real" occurrences as dreams arising from the collective unconscious, he derives clues to the significance of present and past events and identifies those that have served as accurate portents of the future. He presents studies of Jim Jones and the trickster archetype, the War of the Worlds panic, omens and portents expressed in the mass media, some implications of the Gorbachev revolution, Cambodia and the American shadow, and Israel's biblical duel with the Palestinians.

Signs, and especially symbols, are representations often of the abstract rather than the literal, which allows for a much broader interpretation of their meaning. A look at any dictionary will tell you what they are, but here we ask why and how they came to exist. Here we look for reasons why so many of us are visually illiterate, and why we no longer understand the symbolism which communicated stories and information to our forebears. We also see how symbols have changed with time, and how they have been manipulated to make them encapsulate new meanings.
The major difference between the two classes is that the objects of divination
have many of the characteristics of signs . C . S . Jung ( 1949 : 602 ) stated the
familiar distinction between signs and symbols in a new way when he wrote that “

"Contrary to the practices and pretensions of the professions, a review of the well-considered thoughts of the people, devoid of the special trappings of statistics and the experiments of the scientist, but nevertheless fully as critical as a research monograph, may serve in many a place, we feel, to initiate much-needed remediation. Our experience leads us to believe that such an approach would have much to offer in formulating accident-prevention programs. In our study we secured "specifics" from drivers--pleasure, bus, truck, and taxi--from pedestrians, through newspaper clippings, and by direct observation of driving habits, some fourteen sources in all. One of these was interviews, conducted by students of psychology with several hundreds of drivers, many of whom were the survivors of serious collisions. The latter in many instances had tasted of the ashes of death but had lived to tell the tale. Such interviews yielded insight not to be had solely from inspections of wrecks, however thorough and objective. Treating as evidence rather than as fact all the data thus obtained we ruminated upon the returns. We tried throughout to employ the logical and statistical precautions characteristic of the rigorous evaluation of contradictory evidence. Such a course is unpopular. The path to be traveled is tortuous and stony. But scientific disinterestedness requires a willingness to hew to the truth and let the chips fall where they may"--Foreword.
