Example text

In the dream I was coming from the city, and saw before me a similar 56 lane with a long row of tombs. They were pedestals with stone slabs on which the dead lay. They reminded me of old church burial vaults, where knights in armor lie out-stretched. Thus the dead lay in my dream, in their antique clothes, with hands clasped, the difference being that they were not hewn out of stone, but in a curious fashion mummified. I stood still in front of the first grave and looked at the dead man, who was a person of the eighteen-thirties.

If the first tendency predominates, a person may lose the goal of psychological development and instead get fascinated with the artistic elaboration of a theme.

The important thing is to develop a self-reflective, psychological attitude (Henderson 1984) that draws from both the aesthetic passion for beauty and the scientific passion to understand.
