It remained for modern science to despiritualize nature through its so-called objective knowledge of matter.
All anthropomorphic projections were withdrawn from the object one after another, with a twofold result: firstly man’s mystical identity with nature was curtailed as never before, and secondly the projections falling back into the human soul caused such a terrific activation of the unconscious that in modern times man was compelled to postulate the existence of an unconscious psyche.
Instead of the lost Olympian gods, there was disclosed the inner wealth of the soul which lies in every man’s heart. ~Carl Jung, CW 11, Para 375
