Carl Jung: The psyche creates reality every day.

The psyche creates reality every day.

The only expression I can use for this activity is fantasy.

Fantasy is just as much feeling as thinking, as much intuition as sensation.

There is no psychic function that, through fantasy, is not inextricably bound up with the other psychic functions.

Sometimes it appears in primordial form, sometimes it is the ultimate and boldest product of all our faculties combined.

Fantasy, therefore, seems to me the clearest expression of the specific activity of the psyche.

It is, pre-eminently, the creative activity from which the answers to all answerable questions come; it is the mother of all possibilities, where, like all psychological opposites, the inner and outer worlds are joined together in living union. ~Carl Jung, CW 6, Para 78
