Psychosynthesis and Integral Psychology both present complex formulations of human consciousness. With one exception (a sketch of aspects of Mind) Sri Aurobindo did not convey his psychography visually. Psychosynthesis however uses two interesting diagrams to describe the various aspects of the self. These are called the Egg Diagram and the Star Diagram. In the following, I compare these with Sri Aurobindo's formulation. While the equivalence is not perfect, it is intrugingly close.
|1. The Lower Unconscious
2. The Middle Unconscious
3. The Higher Unconscious or Superconscious
4. The Field of Consciousness
5. The Conscious Self or "I"
6. The Higher Self (Universal Self, i.e. Manifest Absolute)
7. The Collective Unconscious
|1. The Subconscient
2. Subliminal in part
3. Higher / Illumined / Spiritual Mind and Spiritualisation
4. Normally Outer Consciousness (but expands with sadhana)
5. Mental Purusha? ("True Mind")
7. Inner or Universal Being?
3. Impulse Desire
8. Central point: The I, or personal self
2. Emotional Vital
3. Central Vital
4. Vital Mind (and Inner Mental?)
5. Thinking Mind
6. Inner Being?
7. Will (on any plane)
8. Mental being? Outer Being?
