~Familiarising Objects~

For if he is familiar, then it is a possession which he can put in his pocket, no longer a thing greater than himself. He becomes it. Prof. Jung: That would be practically what Mrs. Adler said: it would be assimilating it to the ego. If one can call it by a name and put it in one’s pocket, the ego would be on top-! have a virtue. Giving a name to a thing generally has the peculiar effect of familiarizing it. It is as if it were depotentiated. ~ Carl Jung
