“This process of becoming human is represented in dreams and inner images as the putting together of many scattered units, and sometimes as the gradual emergence and clarification of something that was always there.
The speculations of alchemy, and also of some Gnostics, revolve around this process.
It is likewise expressed in Christian Dogma, and more particularly in the transformation mystery of the Mass.”
