Out of the Shadows: The Frankenstein Prophecies
Out of the Shadows: The Frankenstein Prophecies

Do you want to know how to make a monster? Or, I should say, do you want to know how we have created the monsters that linger in the shadows of our reasonable minds, that haunt the margins of our collective and cultural imagination, that linger as the hidden side of our scientific technological world view?

If you do then one very good place to begin is with Mary Shelley's story, Frankenstein; or the modern Prometheus. Her novel began with a dream and in Jung's psychology the dream is understood not only as an expression of what is denied and lingers in the shadows but also as a prophetic opening of a possibility.

Basing my talk on a play in progress, The Frankenstein Prophecies, I will describe how Mary Shelley's novel re-imagines the biblical story of creation within the context of science and technology. Within this context the Creature's side of the tale has been ignored. To hear his story we must draw near to the margins. There on the margins, lending an ear to what has been denied, ignored, forgotten or otherwise banished from the waking ego mind, we might begin to understand how the tale of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature contains seven archetypal patters that live on today as prophecies  and how within their unconscious grip we continue to make monsters.

But marginal work is no easy task for the Creature's side of the story will and must begin with the question that the Creature poses to us: Who is the Monster?
