    Space and Time are concepts that our bodies are bound by. Our minds have no such barrier. Whatever we can imagine is possible.

    Sorry but I was going to reply before the radical implications of such a claim started to really sink in. I mean basically, he is saying our consciousness is not something physical? and if it's not physical, then we don't know if we really stop existing if our physical body decays or dies.

    Sounds like something he'd believe in if he believed in collective consciousness.

    I think you mean the collective UNconscious. But that still doesn't explain WHERE the psyche resides, in fact it just made it more confusing. Oh well, these mysteries are what make life worth living.

    Jung was an INTP.

    Whoops! My bad.
    I've been digging around but haven't had much luck finding his exact position on the mind body problem. However according to this source material and interpretation of his words, Carl Jung did not neccessary believe that the psyche is connected to the brain. A friend commented on the fact that Jung was at a point where occultism had a huge influence. It'd make sense that he would believe this to be partially true if he believed in God, as pure reductionists believe that the consciousness and unconsciousness is only a product of chemicals moving in random orders to put it bluntly.

    Hm. It appears that I misunderstood collective unconsciousness, it's basically evolutionary psychology buried deep within individuals, and the whole ideas of archetypes come from there. But still Jung himself was a believer in the paranormal.

    People just don't know what to do with those who exhibit large quantities of Ni *and* Ti.

    Did Jung ever classify himself as an Introverted Thinker? (I don't recall.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Please Understand Me (I and II) both say Jung was an INTP. It makes sense too, the man was a genius.

    And the books don't lie, my friends. They are the Holy Bible of MBTI.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    You can practically see INTP written across his Frontalis Muscles.
