Don't miss this blisteringly brilliant one-minute clip of Jung speaking about man's need for myth:
“A man is not complete when he lives in a world of statistical truth.
He must live in a world of his biological truth.
Man has always lived in the myth.
And we think we are people to be born today and to live in no myth – without history.
That is a disease.
It’s absolutely abnormal because man is not born ‘every day.’
He is once born in a specific historical setting with specific historical qualities and therefore he is only complete when he has a relation to these things.
It is just as if you were born without eyes and ears when you are growing up with no connection to the past…
'You need no connection with the past, wipe it out' – that is a mutilation of the human being.”
