The deeper layers of the psyche lose their individual uniqueness as they retreat farther and farther into darkness.

Lower down; that is to say as they approach the autonomous functional systems, they become increasingly collective until they are universalized and extinguished in the body’s materiality, i.e., in chemical substances.

The body’s carbon is simply carbon. Hence *at bottom’ the psyche is simply “world.” ~Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams and Reflections.
