PERCEPTION; Perceptual v Conception

Aristotle said “the soul never thinks without a picture” and this section introduces us to Jung’s approach to perceiving through the activation of the imagination or what called visioning, a picture method, and trancing before arriving at active imagination. A n embodied perception, this is tacit knowledge or nonverbal creativity (other than metaphor) in which the body and a body of art serve as the organ of perception. Including all of the senses, perception in this multifaceted or synthetic sense is like entering a picture like an imaginary landscape—becoming one of the actors, as Jung suggested.
