In the fourth sandbox after a partial solution to the conflict prevailed idyll housewarming - a family of spiders to equip a new home, to be rich and to acquire animals. Beetle Centipede and also got a living space.

Conclusion: Status home, security, comfort were needed to rebuild the psyche. And all children do not obey the Pope (fled to elkam, cabinets, locks), this behavior is not peculiar to Maxim, and so it happily - overcome paralyzing influence of collective values.

Awaken new dimensions of personality - in the sand got new characters (guests spiders) that Maxim had not noticed before, the energy of vitality filled the space. The figurine of the hero Beetle ego projection Maxim, bustles with inadvertently appeared in the center! Opposing qualities of the psyche:

  • dog (pack animals) shifted the cat (single),
  • a live beetle bug was locked up in a locker (rigidity) - almost immediately released (spontaneity),
  • peaceful and warlike spiders lizards,
  • cottage fenced off with trees and free space of the castle and kitchen,
  • dreamy giraffe and crocodile unpredictable, which this time surprised ( "what business spiders!") And does not think to attack.

Spiders emboldened, they were not afraid of anybody - they are poisonous! At the end of the story comes from the spiders arms - now they can win (the mind is preparing for battle stage). Almost all of the high points in the composition busy "observers", which is very like what is happening.

Many times, fences torn down and rearrange. Some parts of the ego "holed up in the country" for reliable fences, others moved freely by land, water and air. The parent of the psyche has been busy working and business trips. There were tall buildings and towers - the signs of self growth and self-confidence, a manifestation of the ego maskulnoy energy.

The conflict seems to have forgotten. But to be continued!
