In psychology a complex is generally an important group of unconscious associations, conflicting beliefs that stand on their own like a splinter identity, or a strong unconscious impulse, lying behind an individual’s condition. Jung described a “complex” as a node in the unconscious; it may be imagined as a knot of unconscious feelings and beliefs, detectable indirectly, through behavior that is puzzling or hard to account for. Complexes such as the ‘Guilt Complex’ drain energy and integrity from the conscious Ego. What is unconscious tends to be projected onto others: attributed to other people or external situations. The projection may lead to an erroneous perception such as when you think your friend is angry while he himself feels quite content. To resolve the complex may give significant relief.

associations i am making today would connect jung’s ideas summarized here with that of the logos in the origin of stories: evolution cognition and fiction book, and the ideas on the metaphorical basis of the subjective self i just read in the origin of consciousness in the breakdown of the bicameral mind, and the ideas of a quantum system running our minds, along with a macro system which works as a measuring device for essentially amplifying these quanta, as detailed in the self-aware universes: how consciousness creates the material world, which i am reading right now.
