What's the Refusal of the Return in Pulp Fiction?
The Refusal of the Return can be described as the pull back by older self attachments to older worlds and versions of the self.
From another point of view, it's a pull back to ignorance, sleep, un-awakening.
From another point of view, it's the refusal to allow archetypes to let go.
In Pulp Fiction, it's Vincent Vega's exclamations that Jules is crazy for wanting to retire and Walk the Earth, to Just Be Jules - in other words, pulling him back to his older self.
Jules himself says, "he can't go back to sleep."
