Quote of the day

Our hypotheses are uncertain and groping, and nothing offers us the assurance that they may ultimately prove correct. That the world inside and outside ourselves rests on a transcendental background is as certain as our own existence, but it is equally certain that the direct perception of the archetypal world inside us is just as doubtfully correct as that of the physical world outside us. If we are convinced that we know ultimate truth concerning metaphysical things, this means nothing more than that archetypal images have taken possession of our powers of though and feeling.
