Unconscious

The unconscious is the ocean of the unsayable, of what has been expelled from the land of language, removed as a result of ancient prohibitions.

— Italo Calvino

The unconscious is not just evil by nature, it is also the source of the highest good: not only dark, but also light, not only bestial, semi-human and demonic but superhuman, spiritual, and in the classical sense of the word, ‘divine.’

— Carl Jung, Collected Works: Vol. 16, the practice of Psychoterapy, 1954
