Jung was fascinated by the questions of Space/Time. He noted that what we perceive as time is a stream of inner and outer experiences, a flow of outwardly perceived events and the inwardly experienced trains of instincts and emotions, feelings and thoughts, images and symbols. When Einstein was formulating the relativity of space/time in physics, Jung was positing the relativity of conscious and unconscious time. In our era, Depth Psychologies, the Arts and the Sciences engage the concept of Time. Noted scientist Harald Atmanspacher will address the “relaxed” features of time in current physics as related to human experience as “extended nowness” and as “presence”.
