Carl Jung, I Applaud You

30 Apr

  • ‘Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart . . . Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.’ Carl Jung 1875-1961
  • One of Jungs favorite quotes that he believed succiently captures the essence of synchronicity if from Lewis Caroll’s novel Through the Looking glass: “It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards”.
  • “Pauli’s work on quantum field as expressions of resident forces constituting nature in uncertainties and probabilities, Jung saw, spoke to his own attempt to analyze empirically the seemingly random occurrence of meaningful juxtapositions in the field of the real, what we might call either time or history. This analysis, in turn, had a direct bearing on Jung’s chief conceptual contribution to psychoanalysis: the ‘collective unconscious.’ Jung’s work on a collective unconscious as a deep structure beneath the play of surfaces, Pauli saw, spoke to his attempt to grapple with a seemingly acausality as the expression of ‘quantum reality’ (Herbert quantum xi). The collaborative conclusions reached by the physicist and the psychoanalysts suggest that synchronistic effects point to a deeper reality wherein mind and matter -always split within Enlightenment epistemologies defined by Cartesian dualism and Newtonian mechanics- find harmonious expression and experience cohesion.”
  • “Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.” ~C.G.Jung, Psychological Reflections
  • “In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” – C.G. Jung
