Lexion: That Which Upholds or Bears an Archetype.


Lexion: That Which Upholds or Bears an Archetype. Introducing Lex and Lexion to Modern English
Derived from the Etruscan and Greek alphabets, Latin is a classical language that has influenced modern languages such as English, French, Italian and Spanish. With its Latin and Greek roots, this paper argues that the word lexion is an appropriate and necessary addition to the English language. Lex in Latin means, law, syllabus, statute and dharma. Lex in Ancient Greek means “the Word” or logos. Drawing from Plato, this paper argues that “lexion” is the lore, law and dharma that upholds or bears an idea or perfect Form. A “lexion” emerges at the confluence of forces aligned with the archetype, thus forming the metaphysical body or spirit of an organisation. It is argued that a new term is necessary to name this phenomenon as current terms, while appropriate in some contexts, are often inadequate, limited and at times misleading. This paper outlines the benefits in introducing a new term.

In The Republic, Plato argued that behind physical phenomenon are perfect Forms or archetypes (Jowett, 1891, Book V11, p.1165; Louth, 2007). Perfect Forms exist in a non-dimensional, less emanated (incarnated) level of creation. They are the divine blueprint or essence of what we experience with the physical senses (Louth, 2007; Sagan 2007; Miller,
1974; Jowett, 1891). This paper argues that a term is needed. Through the process of emanation, a perfect Form will be upheld by lore, laws and dharma that support, bear and shape its emanation (Russ 2014). At the confluence of forces aligned with the perfect Form a new ‘form’ emerges. Drawing from Latin and Ancient Greek, this paper names lexion as what upholds or bears an idea or perfect Form (lex). This paper outlines the traditional meaning of lex, from both Greek and Latin, to renew its use for a modern audience. It defines the modern definition of lex and lexion. Terms such as the corporate being (Sagan, 2007), metabeing (Bodeau, 1999), egregore, (Delaforge, 1988) a psychic entity (Dubuis, 2000), corporate angel (Wink, 1986), the metaphysical body (Russ, 2014), the super-organism (Bloom, 1995) and meme (Dawkins, 2006), have been used to describe the phenomenon being considered. This paper discusses why these terms are inadequate and what are the benefits in the introduction of a new term.
