Example text

Going further, however, at level 5 (to use Loevinger's summary) not only has the individual disidentified with the persona, he 45 begins to disidentify with the known ego, for "the self as observer is distinguished from the self-concept [our ego] as known. . "243 Both ego-mind and body are no longer viewed as substantial but simply constructural. It appears to me that at level 5 the self is starting to shift to a center that is prior to both body and mind as separate entities, since both are recognized as mere constructs.

44 7 CENTAURIC REALMS A t the late ego stage (ages 12-21), not only does an individual normally master his various personae, he tends to differentiate from them, disidentify with them, transcend them. He thus tends to integrate all his possible personae into the mature ego—and then he starts to differentiate or disidentify with the ego altogether, so as to discover, via transformation, an even higher-order unity than the altogether egoic self. And that brings us, right off, to the centaur. A HIGHER-ORDER UNITY As consciousness begins to transcend the verbal ego-mind, it can—more or less for the first time— integrate the ego-mind with all the lower levels.

Similar transformations occur in the affective and motivational and conative life of the individual, ranging from the primal and archaic oceanic tones of the pleromatic-uroboric stages to the individual and specific goals, choices, and desires of the ego and persona. To simply outline one example of these transformative events, we can see that: The original oceanic tone of the uroboric level is transformed by the axial-image into the individual bodily pleasure principle. For with the help of the axial-image, the infant begins to construct and represent the external world—he moves out of the infantile material and uroboric embeddedness and learns to focus his awareness from the material cosmos to the surface of his organism (his "body-ego"), while at the same time tentatively differentiating his body from the immediate environment.
