Carl Jung: the child and the Golden Egg

“The phenomenology of the “child’s” birth always points back to an original psychological state of non-recognition, i.e., of darkness or twilight, of non-differentiation between subject and object, of unconscious identity of man and the universe. This phase of non-differentiation produces the golden egg, is both man and universe and yet neither, but an irrational third.” (Carl Jung, CW 9i, para 290)
