Carl Jung: “One cannot individuate on top of Mt. Everest…”

One cannot individuate without being with other human beings. One cannot individuate on top of Mt. Everest, or in a cave where one doesn’t see anyone for seventy-years; one can only individuate with or against something or somebody.

Being an individual is always a link in a chain.
