In Hermeticism and related memeticities, acausal patterns of similarity and analogy - e.g. the chakras are said to correspond to the archetypes.

Some schools and teachings develop extraordinarily detailed and baroque tables and charts of correspondence. Unfortunately any claim to universality is weakened by the fact that different systems are incompatible with each other. Many esotericists acknowledge that the correspondences are subjective at worst, more likely collective thoughtforms or group-opinions, local memeticities, or at best represent patterns too complex to be divined by mere SI:<1 sophonts.
