He observed Germanic psychology as harmful but very important, promising rebirth and rejuvenation, and in comparison Wotan to the Pentecostal Spirit, suggesting that the Germanic psyche contained the mandatory pressure to beginning a brand new collective psycho-spiritual perspective. In racializing his religiously-inflected mental thought, Jung mixed non secular and clinical discourses in a very seductive manner, masterfully weaving jointly the target language of technology with the everlasting language of fable.
