Carl Jung had a remarkable four-year relationship with Einstein, where the two explorers would meet regularly over dinner to share and discuss their ideas.
Carl Jung was deeply inspired and began to see parallels between Einstein’s view of space and time, and his own views of a transcendent human consciousness.
The second experience occurred shortly after Jung’s dinner friendship with Einstein came to an end, and after his professional relationship with Freud collapsed under the strain of his new disruptive thinking.
Lapsing into a kind of bipolar depression, by night, Jung experienced a continuing series of conscious and unconscious visions which he called “active imaginations.”
In this video, presenter Frederick Tamagi shares what convinced Jung of the existence of another unconscious realm – a realm of mythic thoughts and images.
