For Carl Jung's birthday, the iconic psychiatrist on human nature and the meaning existence in a rare BBC interview

There is something that is very important about the physical existence. The pagan connection to the earth — the celebration of being in this body and all we can do with it. But at the same time, we are physical beings having a spiritual experience. And the combo platter of those two is very much the makeup of what the Chili Peppers do. With any kind of funk music, there is a visceral, guttural celebration going on, where you just wanna hump and dance and jump. But there’s also a sense of the spirit that inspires all that.  — Anthony Kiedis, 2002.

“I’m still a little bent, a little crooked, but all things considered, I can’t complain. After all those years of all kinds of abuse and crashing into trees at eighty miles and hour and jumping off buildings and living through overdoses and liver disease, I feel better now than I did ten years ago. I might have some scar tissue, but that’s all right, I’m still making progress. And when I do think “Man, a fucking motel room with a couple thousand dollars’ worth of narcotics would do me right,” I just look over at my dog and remember that Buster’s never seen me high.”

The last paragraph of Scar Tissue brings back some powerful memories.

Dreams and the Meaning of Life

What dreams can teach us about living a happy life is that dreams have meaning assigned to them reflexively, and while the dreamer is fully immersed in the dream there is no effort made for it to be a meaningful experience. Upon waking there is an immediate denial of this, at least most common people don’t find dreams meaningful. However, this same problem is found by many in waking life. How is life meaningful? When you consider death it seems meaningless, at least this seems to be many people’s train of thought. Here is the lesson dreams teach: while immersed in the moment of the experience, meaning and profundity can be found effortlessly. When considering a dream from the waking perspective it is meaningless, analogously when assessing life from the perspective of death it’s meaningless. We must assess the meaning of life in the moment of experience in order to find meaning and profundity effortlessly.
