double blind

"Mastery of the inner world, with a relative contempt for the outer, must inevitably lead to great catastrophes. Mastery of the outer world, to the exclusion of the inner, delivers us over to the demonic forces of the latter and keeps us barbaric despite all outward forms of culture."

[from the translator's preface: The Secret of the Golden Flower, A Chinese Book of Life translated and explained by Richard Wilhelm with a foreward and commentary by C.G. Jung]
