Example text

The dream represents that tendency of the unconscious that aims at a change of the conscious attitude. In this case, the counterposition raised by the unconscious is stronger than the conscious position: the dream represents a gradient from the unconscious to consciousness. These are very significant dreams. Someone with a certain attitude can be completely changed by them. 4. The dream depicts unconscious processes showing no relation to the conscious situation. Dreams of this kind are very strange and often very hard to interpret because of their peculiar character.

We find a particularly impressive application of the theory of the archetypes, because the personal context largely fades into the background in children’s dreams, most of them remembered only in adulthood, and because archetypal images and situations come to the fore, owing to the child’s greater proximity to the collective unconscious. In addition, the views expressed in the seminars are an important contribution, not only to the psychology of the individual, but also to the problems of modern society and to the questions of the basic religious needs of human beings.

But they didn’t want to look! At a Later Session [8 November 1938] Professor Jung: Last time we left off at a discussion of the various causes of the dream processes. A further group of causes can be found in dreams that, although having originally had a connection with consciousness, have long lost it, so that it seems as if this connection never existed. Let us turn to these contents that have lost the connection to consciousness. Therefore, the contents of these dreams cannot be reproduced. Persons, faces, situations, buildings, parts of buildings, furniture, or fixtures can appear that were once conscious in childhood, but have fallen into complete oblivion over the decades.
