An important figure in Jung’s fantasies was that of Ka, from Egyptian mythology.

Wolff had her own figure of Ka, and also had dialogues with Jung’s Ka.

In an active imagination on January 1926, Wolff’s “I” had a dialogue with Thot, the Egpytian God of writing.

Thoth instructed her how to invoke someone’s “Ka”:

“So call loudly thrice, You Ka, you Ka, you Ka of so and so, come here and move into my heart. Space has been made for you. Your Ba expects you and you should move in.”

She followed his instructions:

“You Ka, you Ka, you Ka of C., come here, move into my heart. Space has been made for you. Your Ba expects you and you should move in.”

On January 30, she noted:

earlier: C.’s Ka to me

mine not received by him

C.’s Ka speaks about the

abyss and the death he sees.

Wolff, Diary E, January II, 1926, p. 17.

Regarding the Egyptian concept of the Ba, E. A. Wallis Budge noted,

“To that part of man which beyond all doubt was believed to enjoy an eternal existence in heaven in a state of glory, the Egyptians gave the ·name ba, a word which means something like ‘sublime,’ ‘noble’ and which has always hitherto been translated by ‘soul.’

The ba is not incorporeal, for although it dwells in the ka, and is in some respects, like the heart, the principle of life in man, still it possesses both substance and form: in form it is depicted as a human-headed hawk, and in nature and substance it is stated to be exceedingly refined or ethereal. It revisited the body in the tomb and re-animated it, and conversed with it; it could take upon itself any shape that it pleased; and it had the power of passing into heaven and of dwelling with the perfected souls there. It was eternal”
