Symbols of Death and Resurrection as Reflection of Cyclical Laws of Socionics

Birth and death are considered as cyclical processes, which may be construed according to socionic laws. Providing that Grof's stages of birth correspond to the evolution law, then death, as a reverse process, may be described in terms of an involution law. Our research of shifted states of consciousness has confirmed that the unconscious creates complicated associations at the perinatal level, whose mythological essence corresponds to the law of quadral succession.
Key words: symbols, birth, death, consciousness, unconscious, initiation, perinatal matrices, quadras.
