Carl Jung on reviews of “Synchronicity.”




To R.F.C. Hull

Dear Hull, 24 January 1955

Thank you very much for your refreshing answer to Mr. Philip Toynbee.

You have done it very well.

No reason to believe you could not rectify such clumsy misunderstandings!

I am obliged to you for your courageous answer.

There are damned few who have the guts to stand up for me.

The latest comment about "Synchronicity" is th at it cannot be accepted because it shakes the security of our scientific foundations, as if th is were not exactly the goal I am aiming at and as if the merely statistical nature of causality had never been mentioned before.

It is true however that it is the asses that make public opinion.

50 years of this stuff could have subdued me easily if I had not had the unshakable experience that my truth was good enough for myself and that I could live with it.

If you like Camembert, you just like it, although the whole world would shout at you that it is very bad.

Sooner or later, somebody else will also discover that nothing is quite secure, not even the SS.

Trinitas, space, time, and causality.

I am sorry that I did not see you again.

Only once I saw you flitting by on your fiery chariot.

I am planning to come down to Ascona once more towards the end of February for about a fortnight.

Many thanks!

Yours cordially,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 217.
