Summary/Abstract: According to the concept of analytical psychology, the experience of the sacred and the mythological thinking are not stages of the development of man and mankind, but are components of the psyche, universal and inheritable. Most of the authors, working in different fields of science, support this statement. With the development of the conscious, with the running of history a new individual kind of culture develops. The archetype, as “an organ of the soul” finds expression in different forms and creates the core of different phenomena, universal in space and time, despite the variations in details. Not only the expressed form, but also the dynamics of the psyche have universal parameters, expressed in every human activity, because the psyche finds objectivation in it.
