Rev. 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: [Rev 2:1], (the sevenfold spirit of the psyche, now called by these names: Id, [Lucifer]; Libido, [Satan]; Ego, [Mammon]; Anima, [Devil]; Self, [Beelzebub]; Superego, [False Prophet]; and Harmony, the [False Shepherd]: [Gen. 28:12-13]): and out of his mouth went a two-edged sword (cuttyging both secular and theological understandings): and his countenance was as the sun (of rationality) shineth in his strength (of factual, even secularly confirmed knowledge: [Dan 12:3-4]).

Rev. 1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me, (as I pondered on these thoughts). And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks, (each representing one of the seven burning of energies in each of the Freudian Archetypes inside our heads);

Rev. 1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks, (while envisioning these as seven Social Stages of human religious development), one like unto the Son of man, (our psychic Conscience), clothed with a garment, (Truth), down to the foot (of his whole psyche) and girt about, (embracing) the (seven) paps (of the Freudian/Jungian archetypal psychic apparati) with a golden (sacred) girdle (of homoiousian righteousness).

Rev. 1:14 His head and his hairs were (ancient), white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire (baptism: [Matt 3:12]);

Rev. 1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass (a mixture of metals), as if they burned in a furnace (of evolution); and his voice as the sound of many (ancient) waters (of thought).

Rev. 1:17 And when I saw him, (becoming aware of this psychic entity within my mind), I fell (as in an uncontrollable psychic episode) at his feet, (prostrate) as dead. And, he laid his right hand, (one holding all the seven Astrological stars, now understood as the Freudian archetypal psyche) upon me: saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first, (Adam), and the last (evolutionary step in the ascent of Modern man, i.e.; Homoousian sapiens):

Rev. 1:18 I, (Jesus, the human Conscience), am alive, (awakened in the psyche of men), and was (Unconsciously , though as if) dead: behold, I am alive, (consciously, within my Christian flock), for evermore, Amen; and have the (22) keys (to scripture concerning all matters) of hell (on earth, which leads to the process of extinction) and of (the mystery of our supposed) death (which does not exist: [Rev 21:4]).

Rev 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, (about the Unconscious mind and our human behaviors in your own day), and the things which are, (i.e.; the psychic forces present in society now, that determine human behaviors), and the things which shall be hereafter, (those predictable effects in the Sociology of Western History to come, consequential to the behaviors of the past generations: [Rev 19:10]);

Medieval Midrash reiterates and further develops earlier teaching about angels, as corresponding to internal entities that later, Freud and Carl Jung would call Archetypes:

 

Maimonides, for example, talks about them at length in his Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Yisodei HaTorah (i.e.; Laws of the Foundations of the Torah).

 

While he meticulously classifies angelic rankings (there are ten), in his rationalistic system Maimonides equates them with the Aristotelian "intelligences" that mediate between the spheres, (and today, we see the connection between archetypal mentalities like the Anima and "intuition," or the Self and "feelings" as used by the Myers/Briggs Personality Tests).

 

As such they are conscious and govern the spheres in their motion, but in his Aristotelian context Maimonides is saying they are forms of natural causation rather than supernatural beings. He also expands his definition to include natural phenomenon and even human psychology, (i.e.; he refers to the libidinous impulse as the "angel of lust" or what Freud identified as the Libido, i.e.; Satan).
