Carl Jung - The Wisdom of the Dream

This film is one of a three-part series of films produced by PBS, on the life and works of the great thinker and psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. Born on July 26, 1875, in Switzerland, Jung became interested in psychiatry during his medical studies. He saw that the minds of mentally deranged persons had similar contents, much of which he recognized from his own interior life, described in his autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections. His lifelong quest to understand the workings of the psyche led him to develop the analytical method of psychiatry. He proceeded by looking at the role in his patients' lives of what he termed the personal and collective unconscious, as expressed through dreams, myths, and outer events.

When u observe the stream of images within, u observe an aspect of the world, of the world within, The psyche, if u understand it as a phenomenon occuring in living bodies, is a quality of matter, just as our body consists of matter. We discover that this matter has another aspect, namely, a psychic aspect. It is just as though you were seeing into another aspect of matter. This is an idea that is not my invention. Old Democritus talked about the "spiritus insertus atomis," the spirit inserted into atoms. That means the psyche is a quality which appears in matter.
C.G. Jung
