So I may as well quote some more of his words. The thing about radical discoveries is that there's usually heaps of other people who have discovered them before you and mentioned it in quite a few books or sung HEAPS of songs about it. It's hard to discover totally new shiz these days. But you can word it in a way that sounds more exciting or easier to fathom for the party generation.
If words are your thing.

What happens within oneself when one integrates previously unconscious contents with the consciousness can scarcely be described in words. It can only be experienced.

Whether a change has taken place as a result of integration, and what the nature of that change is remains a subjective conviction. To be sure, it is not a fact which can be scientifically verified and therefore finds no place in the official view of the world. Yet it nevertheless remains a fact which is in practise uncommonly important and fraught with consequences.

I have come to the conclusion that before we settle upon any theory in regard to the unconscious we require many, many more experiences of it.
