Red Bull

The NY Times has a fascinating look today into the publication next month of Carl Jung's literally beyond crazy Red Book.  The article discusses how Jung would self-induce hallucinations in an effort to tap his unconscious mind but it fails to mention exactly what he did to make himself hallucinate.  Jung taking drugs a hundred years ago in order to free his mind is something not mentioned but, looking at his drawings and dense German text, it's impossible to conclude otherwise.

The actual original Red Book, previously only seen by members of the Jung family, will be exhibited at the Rubin Museum starting October 7th.
