Consult: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anima_and_animus

Jung described a collective unconscious that goes beyond the individual person. In the male, the unconscious of the female is called the anima while male unconscious in the female is called the animus. He also talks about needing to be able to tell the difference between a manifestation of the anima/animus and reality.

In AC, Desmond uses the animus (male unconscious in the female) to relive memories of his ancestors. He also gets the bleeding effect where he needs to make sure he keeps memories separate from reality.

I also found it interesting that of the anima (female unconscious in the male) has 4 levels. The lowest and first level of the anima is called Eve.

Nice find, I wonder if this ties in to AC3 or not...

What about Animi (Multiplayer)?

Maybe it's for both :S

I've heard of this. I doubt it's relevant though.
