PSYCHE (from the Greek: ‘pusukhe’ – meaning ‘breath’ or ‘life’) – The soul is usually understood to be the eternal, unchanging essence of a human being; and the psyche, an aberrant passenger – responsible for all human ills – that we will likely shed when we die. However, originally, the psyche was thought synonymous with the soul; meaning, that which is eternal and unchanging in us, is also that which is capable of going nutty with an axe. In this sense, we are wholly responsible for our behaviour and cannot lay it off on some temporal, malfunctioning aspect of us.
