Anthropos. Original or primordial man, an archetypal image of wholeness in alchemy, religion and Gnostic philosophy.

There is in the unconscious an already existing wholeness, the “homo totus” of the Western and the Chn-yn (true man) of Chinese alchemy, the round primordial being who represents the greater man within, the Anthropos, who is akin to God.[The Personification of the Opposites,”CW14, par. 152.]
