Th at prediction is based on contemporary materialism, according to which the only scientific account of human origins is Darwins evolutionist account. That is a double error, based on pre-scientific nave realism, a view Einstein called a plebeian illusion, and based on a pre-scientific, nave-realist answer to the question, What is a human being.

Frederick Bauer. Are beliefs in God and in the soul merely relics of pre-scientific superstition? After all, in the twentieth and twenty-first centuriesthe so-called age of sciencewe know that science can be proven by its fruits: its helped us split the atom and put men on the moon. Religious faith, on the other hand, couldnt accomplish these feats.
Motivated partly by her admiration for him, she held hopes that her son might become a scientist. One day she asked Dr. Einstein's advice about the kind of reading that would best prepare the child for this career. To her surprise, the scientist recommended 'Fairy tales and more fairy tales. Einstein persisted, adding that creative imagination is the essential element in the intellectual equipment of the true scientist, and that fairy tales are the childhood stimulus to this quality.

Although similar to many of Einstein's comments about the importance of intuition and imagination, no sources for this can be found prior to The Psychology of Consciousness by Robert Evan Ornstein , p.
A number of early sources from the s and s attribute it to The Intuitive Edge by Philip Goldberg , which also provides no original source. Two things are infinite: the universe and the human stupidity. As discussed in this entry from The Quote Investigator , the earliest published attribution of a similar quote to Einstein seems to have been in Gestalt therapist Frederick S. Perls ' book Gestalt Theory Verbatim , where he wrote on p.
Einstein has proved that the universe is limited. The quote itself may be a variant of a similar quote attributed even earlier to the philosopher Ernest Renan , found for example in The Public: Volume 18 from , which says on p. Since these variants have not been found in Renan's own writings, they may represent false attributions as well. They may also be variants of an even older saying; for example, the book Des vers by Guy de Maupassant includes on p. The earth has its boundaries, but human stupidity is infinite! Aber beim Universum bin ich mir nicht ganz sicher. Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous.
No original source where Einstein supposedly said this has been located, and it is absent from authoritative sources such as Calaprice, The Ultimate Quotable Einstein.

I fear the day when technology overlaps our humanity. It will be then that the world will have permanent ensuing generations of idiots. Although it is a popular quote on the internet, there is no substantial evidence that Einstein actually said that. Contempt prior to investigation is what enslaves a mind to Ignorance. This or similar statements are more often misattributed to Herbert Spencer , but the source of the phrase "contempt prior to investigation" seems to have been William Paley , A View of the Evidences of Christianity : "The infidelity of the Gentile world, and that more especially of men of rank and learning in it, is resolved into a principle which, in my judgment, will account for the inefficacy of any argument, or any evidence whatever, viz.
Then I looked to the great editors of the newspapers whose flaming editorials in days gone by had proclaimed their love of freedom; but they, like the universities, were silenced in a few short weeks. Then I looked to individual writers who, as literary guides of Germany, had written much and often concerning the place of freedom in modern life; but they, too, were mute. After the quote appeared in Time magazine 23 December , p. I made this statement during the first years of the Nazi-Regime — much earlier than — and my expressions were a little more moderate.
Cornelius Greenway of Brooklyn, who asked if Einstein would write out the statement in his own hand, Einstein was more vehement in his repudiation of the statement 14 November  : The wording of the statement you have quoted is not my own. Einstein also made some scathingly negative comments about the behavior of the Church under the Nazi regime and its behavior towards Jews throughout history in a conversation with William Hermanns recorded in Hermanns' book Einstein and the Poet The concentration camps make the actions of Ghengis Khan look like child's play.
But what makes me shudder is that the Church is silent. One doesn't need to be a prophet to say, 'The Catholic Church will pay for this silence. Hermanns, you will live to see that there is moral law in the universe. There are cosmic laws, Dr.
They cannot be bribed by prayers or incense. What an insult to the principles of creation. But remember, that for God a thousand years is a day. This power maneuver of the Church, these Concordats through the centuries with worldly powers. We live now in a scientific age and in a psychological age. Really interesting. I used to have an abusive animus, but then our relationship evolved and I fell in love with him literally, I'm totes crushing on a figure from my dreams. A few nights ago I saw him burst into tears after absolutely failing at playing a game of basketball poor bloke.
So different from how he was around a year ago. I can now even see his face. It's pretty cool. But he kind of wants me to be a lesbian he's into the idea of me getting with certain golden-haired ladies that I know, and I have to say, I'm pretty keen on the idea Because some of my friends say that it all seems a bit like DID- I refer to my animus as a whole other person and have strong romantic feelings towards him, and it's gotten a bit to the point that I can no longer view myself as one cohesive unit of a person.
I think in a vague way I get that. I've had a few unusually loving moments with my animus, but we seem to keep ending up against each other. He's got a lot of pride issues about working with others. Do you have any tips for this stage? It must be nice to get along with yours. That's a tremendously important relationship :.
Just make sure he doesn't monopolize you. It happened to an ex of mine who kept wanting to make me into his anima and seemed to lose interest in dating when he couldn't find her in real life. Both inner and outer relationships are supposed to be important for either kind to function well in the long run maybe in your case the other one might be with a woman? Just keep in mind that no human is ever going to be exactly like your animus and you should be okay from my understanding.
Congrats on reaching that stage with him :. As with any other relationship, communication is key. Mine used to get angry because I couldn't understand the symbolism he brought into my thinking. Focusing in on the abstract patterns in my thought processes helped me understand him, and won me his respect. Now, it's almost as if he and I are merging into one, oddly enough. I can finish his sentences a decent amount of the time, and the colors things are tinted in my dreams have almost reversed between the two of us he used to be dark blue and I used to be cherry red, but now I'm bluish-purple and he's wine-tinted.
If you zero in on how your mind works, you'll in turn find out more about what your animus is like and what makes him happy. Also, the other things you learn about yourself are incredible. If you can figure him out, he'll have to accept that he's not the only one who can understand such complex things, and the pride issues should lighten up a bit, and he'd also be more likely to cooperate with you, since he'd then view you as competent. Listen to those awkward thoughts you don't quite consciously think, even if they're mean or embarrassing.
I can't exactly tell you what to look for since your mind works different than mine, obviously, but patterns exist in places that you wouldn't expect. And thanks! I definitely don't take this for granted. You are so wonderfully funny, Tracey; I truly appreciate your sense of humor. And I can also appreciate your repudiation of Jung's sexism, although not to give offense, Freud makes Jung look like a pussycat. Regardless, I remember being so disappointed when I read in "Psyche and Symbol" his description of the animus.
I never accepted Jung's definition; mine has always manifested in different lights, and it depends on how he behaves, how I treat him. I think opposite sex characters in my dreams can be animus figures; they can also prefigure a guy I might meet soon in waking or represent one I already know, and I can have an experience with a male figure in some other dream dimension.
They're not always psychological complexes to unpack, for me; it depends on the dream. Great story! I just really found my animus in my dreams last year and it's pretty sweet! No issues, no possession, no nuthin' but awesome fun. Sometimes I find myself more masculine than my Animus. Anyway, thanks for your thoughts! I just started becoming interested in Jung and his work. I find that I can really identify with a lot of his work including the animus.
I think i discovered my animus in my dreams and he was pretty positive when i was younger. I only really remember two dreams that involved my animus positively. Im in my early twenties now and I have been having some recurring nightmares lately. In them I am weary of a dark presence in my dream and usually find a dark masculine faceless figure just waiting for me usually in my room or house and i only see him in a reflection of a mirror.
In my dream I'm terrified of this figure and I scream to myself to wake up in the dream which i do. I'm pretty new to understanding this whole thing with the inner animus but from what I read so far I can identify it with these dreams. I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about this? I wouldn't usually talk about my dreams like this but these dreams really disturb my sleep and I'm pretty tired!
Also I am quite fascinated my this realisation btw I only read about the animus after I had these dreams thanks. Reading this made me realize that I think my animus is trying to bully me And has been for a while. Love the humor-filled approach to this. I agree with Adelita that Jung's attitude towards women pales in comparison to Freud's idea that women are utterly lacking. I know it was the time in which he lived, but it can still be hard to read his theories on women without occasionally wanting to throw out the Basel-born Jung with the bath water".
What is unbearable how this paragraph slips into supposition and unreferenced assertions. What is embarrassing for you is. This is almost juvenile. What is going on? How can one write relatively objective in paragraphs describing Jungian concepts then write a a paragraph that is so alien it sounds like it is written by someone else? What sort of misgivings would such a change in style and substance invoke in the reader? What do you actually believe? Are you writing with integrity? Why should one trust you with knowledge?
Actually I have read again your explanations of Jungian concepts with the new insight that I am suspect at your objectivity and they are personally loaded with subjective opinions and your positions on Jung. This is not an explanatory piece on Jung, it is an opinion piece. Objective scholarship seeks to explain and expand concepts. What we have here is self indulgent drivel that teaches people nothing. You made this up.
You can't write assertions like that and not back it up with evidenced references. What a load of garbage. It has no scholastic value at all. Perhaps you need to take your "writer" hat off when authoring pieces that seek to educate. You are simply telling a story of fiction. Thanks for commenting exactly as I felt. You are the voice of reason. The writer does not differentiate between the animus and the inverted animus- there is a positive AND negative version!
The animus inverted has everything to do with a woman's experience with men, which will result in a shadow version of the animus. This article is ridiculous. Jung never said it was bad for a woman to have an over inflated positive animus. This would express itself more like a female rocket scientist. An inverted animus would express itself as the most lowly of man hating penis-envy. Sound like this article is the latter Im taking a mythology class and wanted to punch jung in the face lol. Tracy, thank you for this post. I laughed out loud. I loved it.
