Dear Dr. N., 26 June 1956
It is only now that I can thank you for your letters and also for the book Panim Vaccares which I am saving for my holiday.
At the moment my work allows me no such relaxation.
I was particularly interested in the dream which, in mid-August 1955, anticipated the death of my wife.
It probably expresses the idea of life’s perfection: the epitome of all fruits, rounded into a bullet, struck her like karma.
The bullet represents death in perfect form; it is at the same time a symbol of the self.
Death brought and probably always brings-a confrontation with wholeness.
But perhaps not always in such perfection.
These are the thoughts I associated with your dream.
Yours very sincerely,
C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 310.
