3.4 June 15:

Today I saw an osprey suddenly plunge down not far from me; he seized a fish from the water. A sign.

Night 3/14 VI 15.


foreign city-big lime trees, overnight an extreme cold has descended, ice on the roads, the leaves are bent from the frost.

Clear reflection in the dream, how was it possible that, in spite of the warmth of the last few days, it could suddenly turn so cold overnight, yes precisely now in June. (similar dreams before the war).

Assoc. Earlier dreams of that kind-new war? Changes- my relationship to the world-increased introversion-vis-a-vis M and Sch. – the otter lard (=libido) -that needs to be buried. Restraint- the opposite of my efforts.

What do you say? You are right-bury yourself and others will grow.

Do you want them to grow?


That is the sacrifice~ of yourself in order for your son to grow.

You should disappear.

You no longer have opinions, disavow all meanings. ~The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 235-236

See S, p. 35. On July 9, Conrad Schneiter gave a presentation before the Association for Analytical Psychology on “Homosexuality in Schreber,” evidently reinterpreting the Memoirs of Daniel Paul Schreber, which Freud had analyzed .

In the discussion, Jung noted:

“For the Gnostics the diabolos causes the descent from the unity and the entering into the multiplicity (the centers of the senses).

The concretistic understanding of symbols is devilish – a soul murder (hence projection onto Flechsig).

This is why the thinking back to the origins is devilish. (Faust, 2:

“So, to the actively eternal creative force, in cold disdain / You now oppose the fist infernal . .. [II. 138off.J).

Because that way the releasing symbol will be destroyed. (The symbol itself is already something releasing)” (MAP, pp. 89 – 90 ). ~The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 235, fn 182

Possibly a reference to Maria Moltzer and Hans Schmid.

In his letter to Jung of] July 6 , 1915, Schmid wrote,

“Once, on a motorboat trip, Miss Moltzer compared the introvert to a motorboat, and the extravert to a sailing boat” (The Question of  Psychological T}’pes: The Correspondence of C.G. Jung and Hans Schmid-Guisan, 1915-1916 ~The Black Books, Vol. V, Page 236, fn 183
