In 1925, Jung remarked that this dream “was the beginning of a conviction that the unconscious did not consist of inert material only, but that there was something living down there.”‘

He added that he thought of the story of the Tabula Smaragdina, the twelve apostles, the signs of the Zodiac, and so on, but he “could make nothing out of the dream except that there was a tremendous animation of the unconscious.

I knew no technique of getting at the bottom of this activity; all I could do was just wait, keep on living, and watch the fantasies .”‘

These dreams led him to analyze his childhood memories. ~The Black Books, Vol. I, Page 17
