Aion: Researches into the Phenomenology of the Self (Collected Works of C.G. Jung Vol.9 Part 2)
”More especially the threat to one’s inmost self from dragons and serpents points to the danger of the newly acquired consciousness being swallowed up again by the instinctive psyche, the unconscious.” ~Carl Jung, CW 9i, paragraph 282.
“Some have their reason in thinking, others in feeling. Both are servants of Logos, and in secret become worshipers of the serpent.” ~Carl Jung; Red Book
“The symbols of the self arise in the depths of the body and they express its materiality every bit as much as the structure of the perceiving consciousness. The symbol is thus a living body, corpus et anima.” Carl Jung, CW 9i, paragraph 291.
