Trickster appears when a way of thinking becomes outmoded and needs to be torn down and built anew. The destroyer of worlds and yet, at the same time our savior. The wise fool, creator, joker, storyteller, truth teller and liar.
Carl Jung has described trickster as such: “In his clearest manifestations, he is a faithful reflection of an absolutely undifferentiated human consciousness, corresponding to a psyche that has hardly left the animal level”.
