The absolute principle, active in all things, the force which is operative in the inorganic, organic and mental alike, yet not revealed in consciousness....The unconscious exists independently of space, time and individual existence, timeless before the being of the world....For us it is unconscious, in itself it is superconscious (cited in Baldwin (Ed.), 1902:725).
