Carl Jung: God needs man in to become conscious...

God needs man in to become conscious, just as he needs limitation in time and space. Let us therefore be for him limitation in time and space an earthly tabernacle. ~Carl Jung, Letters, Volume 1, Page 65.

Accordingly the capacity to nullify space and time must somehow inhere in the psyche, or, to put it another way, the psyche does not exist wholly in time and space.

It is very probable that only what we call consciousness is contained in space and time, and that the rest of the psyche. the unconscious, exists in a state of relative spacelessness and timelessness.

For the psyche this means a relative eternality and a relative non-separation from other psyches, or a oneness with them. ~Carl Jung, Letters Volume I, Page 256.
