„When one analyzes the pre-conscious step to concepts, one always finds ideas which consist of "symbolic images."“

—  Wolfgang Pauli Austrian physicist, Nobel prize winner 1900 - 1958
Context: When one analyzes the pre-conscious step to concepts, one always finds ideas which consist of "symbolic images." The first step to thinking is a painted vision of these inner pictures whose origin cannot be reduced only and firstly to the sensual perception but which are produced by an 'instinct to imagining' and which are re-produced by different individuals independently, i. e. collectively... But the archaic image is also the necessary predisposition and the source of a scientific attitude. To a total recognition belong also those images out of which have grown the rational concepts. Letter to Markus Fierz (1948)
