Intellectualism and esoterism become strange bedfellows. Human beings, as a conscious, self-reflective creature, are obsessed with the definition of Self, of what it means to be human, of the identification of the “I” and “not I,” the Other, in other words, and the relationship that is established because of this primordial separation. All of our systems and ideologies that we’ve created over the centuries pose these same questions in one form or another and attempt to answer them in many overlapping ways. The interaction between the I and the Other, my Self and the Csodaszarvas in this case, sets up a binary, a comparative contextual dialogue between two opposing forces that cannot exist alone and can only be understood as functionalities of each other. This is reminiscent of one of the most ubiquitous symbols of any esoteric tradition, the yin yang.
