Topic For Today: “Imagination”

“It is of course ironical that I, a psychiatrist, should at almost every step of my experiment have run into the same psychic material which is the stuff of psychosis and is found in the insane. This is the fund of unconscious images which fatally confuse the mental patient. But it is also the matrix of a mythopoeic imagination which has vanished from our rational age. Though such imagination is present everywhere, it is both tabooed and dreaded, so that it even appears to be a risky experiment or a questionable adventure to entrust oneself to the uncertain path that leads into the depths of the unconscious.

It is considered the path of error, of equivocation and misunderstanding. I am reminded of Goethe’s words “Now let me dare to open wide the gate/past which men’s steps have ever flinching trod.” The second part of Faust too, was more than a literary exercise. It is a link in the Aurea Catena which has existed from the beginnings of philosophical alchemy and Gnosticism down to Nietzsche’s Zarathrustra. Unpopular, ambiguous, and dangerous, it is a voyage of discovery to the other pole of the world.” Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams and Reflections.

and …

“Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality.”  Lewis Carroll

Both quotes are very close to my heart.

  2. Not sure if you read that I finished an 8-week leisure course at the local library taught by a lady who has been studying Jung, the collective unconscious, and dreams for many years. The class directly speaks to the first quote. Do you get into analyzing your dreams? And I love that Lewis Carroll quote. Indeed it is. Beautiful painting ❤

  3. I like Carroll’s quote. You have to admit that reality is quite the concept. (I prefer to live in imagination.)
