"Hindu philosophy holds there is a snake in the human body that creeps up the spinal cord and seeks to attain the light of wisdom, or consciousness.
That it wants to be recognized in the light, in consciousness, would be the psychological interpretation.
Of course, in reality the thing is not so simple, because that process is connected with all sorts of mystical phenomena.
People call me a mystic, but [humans] really are chock-full of mysticism; that word covers a large area of facts which we cannot understand." ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page 296.
