Mysterium Coniunctionis (Collected Works of C.G. Jung Vol.14)

“We can see today that the entire alchemical procedure for uniting the opposites could just as well represent the individuation process of a single individual, though with the not unimportant difference that no single individual ever attains to the richness & scope of the alchemical symbolism The individual in his short life has at his disposal only a limited amount of experience & limited powers of portrayal.” ~Carl Jung, CW 14, Para 792
