VISION   Personified Unconscious Thought

Jung (1933) said that: “The vision is not something derived or secondary, and it is not a symptom of something else.  It is true symbolic expression of something existent in its own right, but imperfectly known” (p. 162). Instead of “allegories,” Jung (1933) said “rather they appeared as visions,” which “have not been consciously contrived to depict experience in either veiled or even fantastic terms” (p. 562).  “These images,” he said, “apparently are portrayals of personified unconscious thoughts,” and their “imagistic manner” (p. 562).

 

The visions were “set in a dark earthly depth, evidently an allegorical representation of the inner depths beneath the extension of the bright space of consciousness or the psychic field of vision” and “called for more reflection and interpretation than the other experiences, to which I could not do justice with cogitation” (p. 562).
