Over a period of time I have accumulated several notes about products of the fantasy, and I cannot think of anything better to do with them than to send them to you. ... The fantasies often assumed their own peculiar character by using physical terminology very familiar to me (such as "isotope separation," "fine structure," "reciprocity between self-induced rotation and orbit," "resonant bodies", "radioactive nucleus,", etc.), to express analogies with psychic facts that I can only vaguely surmise. There are a few drawings from last year that do not fit into this envelope. Should you be interested, I could send these as well in due course."

"The Chinese woman walks on ahead and beckons me to follow. She opens a trapdoor and walks down some steps, leaving the door open. Her movements are oddly dancelike; she does not speak but only expresses herself in mime, almost as in ballet. I follow her and see that the steps lead into an auditorium , in which 'the strangers' are waiting for me."

In the house, I find my office and on a table there are two letters. In one of the letters, signed Pallmann, it says: 'Ferry dues settlement.' The bill is very long, with lots of + and - additions. The final total is 568 Swiss franc, which I have to pay. The second letter is in an envelope, on which it says: "philosophical choral society." I open it and find beautiful red cherries, some of which I eat." - W Pauli describes a dream to C Jung

"A major war is being waged. 'Political' news that I wish to send to people is censored. Then my mathematics colleague A. appears, with his wife (I know both of them from the old days in Hamburg). A. says: 'Cathedrals should be built for isomorphy.' Then, from Mrs. A., come more words that I cannot understand and written texts that I cannot read. (I wake up in great excitement.)"

Together with my wile I am in a house that is located in the Tropics. A cobra rises up from the floor of the room. I can see that it will not harm me. I try my best to be friendly toward it and to show that I am not frightened, and in this I succeed. As a result, it leaves us alone. But then a second cobra rears up out of the ground in front of the window. I can see that it is looking for the first cobra and not for us. The snakes are a pair, a male and a female."

"I now come to a path that has been cleared in the countryside, leading across meadows and fields into a new area. It is populated, and there are houses around. I meet my close colleague Jost, who joins us. At the the path, I then also meet the 'master.'"

"Then the dream continues. The 'dark unknown woman' appears. She is crying because she wants to write a book but cannot find a publisher for it. In this book there is apparently a great deal of material on time symbolism-e.g., how a period of time is constituted when certain symbols appear in it.

And at the end of one page of the book there are the following words, read aloud by the 'voice': 'The definite hours have to be paid for with the definite life, the indefinite hours have to be paid for with the indefinite life'" - W Pauli to C Jung

"I am in a room with the 'dark woman,' and experiments are being carried out in which 'reflections' appear. The other people in the room regard the reAections as 'real objects,' whereas the Dark Woman and I know that they are just 'mirror images.' This becomes a sort of secret between us. This secret fills us with apprehension. Afterward, the Dark Woman and I walk alone down a steep mountainside."

"A major war is going on. There is a Chinese couple on my side. In the course of the fighting, I drive the opposition back. When I am finally alone with the Chinese again, I catch sight of the stranger. I demand a formal employment contract for the Chinese couple. To their delight he agrees."

- W Pauli describing dream to C Jung

Found your love after some praying

"Seek and ye shall find"

Now your head and hips are swaying

What is on your mind?

And while I feel a bit of virtigo

So much was in the way a month ago

Now our silent path is all I know

Tree and rock and song and lyric

Copper and pure gold

Mysteries of earth and spirit

Tales to be told

They stem from such profound geometry

Arching the vast dichotomy, it seems

Answers are but deep inside of me


"Oddly enough the problem is still the same as the 2,000-year-old one: How does one get from Three to Four?"

- Jung, to Pauli


"Why 1/137?"

- Pauli, upon being asked what he would ask God if he had the chance
