"Emotion is the alchemical fire whose warmth brings everything into existence and whose heat burns all superfluities to ashes…emotion is the moment when steel meets flint and a spark is struck forth, emotion is the chief source of consciousness.  There is no change from darkness to light or from inertia to movement without emotion."

Jung (1938)
