Beautiful article, great images. I will suggest that it all started when the other beings, Rudolph Steiner has referred to them as Elementals, came to Jung's home kicked in the door and moved in with him (much like the coming of the Wild God). Jung wrote that he though that he was going insane. He thought of his schizophrenic patients. I think that Jung's writing and painting at this time were his efforts to deal with what seemed like a profound and deep wisdom. I think that he felt as though these visions and other manifestations were coming to him and he wanted to record them. Thank goodness. Jung has brought us a lot of wisdom and freedom.
