To Carl Gustave Jung parapsychology was more than a subject for scientiﬁc research, experiment, and theory.
His life was rich in personal experiences of spontaneous, acausal, or-to use the common term-paranormal phenomena.
Jung seemed to be endowed with an unusual “permeability” when it came to the background events of the psyche.
Prophetic dreams and precognitions were no rarity in Jung’s life.
But that alone does not explain the scope of his experiences; his sensitivity to manifestations of the unconscious was supplemented by constant observation of nature, of objects and of people.
Given his close attention to the worlds of the psyche and of external reality, it is not surprising that he perceived meaningful connections between the two which would have been overlooked by a less sharp observer.
Prophetic dreams and precognitions were no rarity in Jung’s life, though far from habitual.
Whenever they occurred he noted them with surprise-one is tempted to say, with awe due to the miraculous. Aniela Jaﬀe, The Life and Work of C.G. Jung, Page 1
