Will Watson's Grandchild Write Poetry?
Erel Shalit, PhD - Israel

We are all witnessing, as well as taking part in the enormous leaps in the cyber development of our era. We have handed over the progress of the world to the brilliant minds of tomorrow, whose bright vision is counterbalanced by apocalyptic fears of the future. The children and the young of today are born into tomorrow's world of multiple realities, and a seemingly boundaryless space of associations and virtuality.

  This forces us to reconsider ego-boundaries, reality-testing, soul and interiority, and to discern the pathologies of our era, such as 'photographic reality,' and the transient personality.  N.B. Watson in the title refers to IBM's superior artificial intelligence computer. He (?) can read millions of documents within seconds, and is a Jeopardy quiz winner, having instant access to more encyclopedias than most of us know exist.

Dr. Erel Shalit is a Jungian psychoanalyst in Tel Aviv. He is a past Presidentof the Israel Society of Analytical Psychology, founding Director of the Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy Program at Bar Ilan University, and past Director of the Shamai Davidson Community Mental Health Clinic, at the Shalvata Psychiatric Centre in Israel. 

He is the author of several books
The Cycle of Life: Themes and Tales of the Journey; Enemy, Cripple & Beggar: Shadows in the Hero's Path; The Complex: Path of Transformation from Archetype to Ego; The Hero and His Shadow: Psychopolitical Aspects of Myth and Reality in Israel, and the novella Requiem: A Tale of Exile and Return; and with Nancy Swift Furlotti, he has edited
The Dream and its Amplification.
He is the editor of Jacob and Esau: On the Collective Symbolism of the Brother Motif, a previously unpublished book by Erich Neumann, and Turbulent Times, Creative Minds - Erich Neumann and C.G. Jung in Relationship, co-edited with Murray Stein, as well as the author of a forth coming book on The Human Soul in Transition, at the Dawn of a New Era.
