This paper is essentially a response to the two keynote speakers at last year’s British Columbia Psychological Association’s annual conference. The challenge of biologist Bruce Lipton to psychology was that the essential law of life is based on quantum dynamics. The challenge presented by Gordon Neufeldt was that psychology needed to recapture its true spirit, which includes a deep understanding of culture and spiritual truths. I argue that Jung’s approach to psychology fulfills both these requirements.
I present my case by drawing parallels between the findings of quantum physics and then quantum biology and Jung’s psychology. I also discuss the relationship between dreams, survival and a creative engagement with life, differentiating between different levels of creative response. I also amplify several dreams, indicating, along the way, how an in-depth understanding of culture can be of value for self-understanding and promoting the individuation process and creative life.
