To elaborate on the above...
Take the reason why wars are done today. We could say that most wars are fought over cultural ideology but in truth, based on actions of people, wars are fought for gold and resources, never for any other reason in terms of primary cause, or economic ideologies.
So we have the scientific idea that resources are limited. A smart man says that there can only be so many balls in the box.
Well guess what. The earth isn't a box. No one is certain if resources are limited or not. There could be an infinite amount of resources in the galaxy and the idea that resources are limited in absolute is as much superstition as Santa or a black cat crossing your path. Yet...it's excepted as a fact because in certain analogical situations we use the scientific method to demonstrate resources are limited.
So then generals are sent to plunder for resources based on an ideology which is rooted in the scientific method.
Are we to say that we are fighting wars now because of science or because we are humans and failing ourselves? The first part would be a Freudian thing, since frued himself was one of the many who unconsciously were of the religion scientism. Jung on the other hand removed himself and was honest and humble. He knew that science could not solve the problems of the world and therefore he realized that the individual must be accountable for evil, not any external locust which was simply a tool. He was humble because he was actually more of a scientist than Freud and this weakened his argument at the time, however he was right in assuming that it would strengthen his argument after he was dead and his legacy was left behind. Humility always trumps pride in the long run. Only the truly humble can serve humanity. Humility is a guardian.
In fact in the first few pages of Man in Search of His Soul Jung makes the bold claim that anyone who is too religious, as in dogmatic, and anyone who is too scientific and leaves to room for mystery fall into the same type of traps and are actually very similar in nature. Only someone in the middle can individuate and become truly mature.
Hence we have the old crusty man who disdains the imagination and who thinks he is mature but in truth is crusty and brings misery to every room. This in itself, crusty and morbid seriousness, should not be confused with maturity. Maturity is not killing the inner child but integrating it. This is an idea of Jung's. Integration brings maturity, not extremism.
