”After my wife’s death in 1955, I felt an inner obligation to become what I myself am.
To put it in the language of the Bollingen house, I suddenly realized that the small central section which crouched so low, so hidden, was myself! I could no longer hide myself behind the “maternal” and the “spiritual” towers.
So, in that same year, I added an upper story which represents myself or my ego-personality…
I had started the first tower in 1923, two months after the death of my mother.
These two dates are meaningful because the Tower, as we shall see, is connected with the dead.”
