Here she explains that the Mundus Imaginalis is a layer of reality that exists between the pure, formless world of spirit and the physical world of our senses. It consists of archetypes, dreams, and symbols. Its manifestations are evident in the earliest cultural remnants, such as cave paintings. This imaginal world is far more real and different than fantasies and imagination. It speaks to us in the preconceptual language of our soul. New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series.
