The Fundamentals of Jungian Psychology

'Life has always seemed to me like a plant that lives on its rhizome.  Its true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome.  The part that appears above ground lasts only a single summer.  Then it withers away - an ephemeral apparition... Yet I have never lost a sense of something that lives & endures under the eternal flux.  What we see is the blossom which passes.  The rhizome remains.'  (CG Jung)
