On this point we take inspiration from the work of Jung: “The gods have become diseases”. Jung is indicating that the formal cause of our distress and our abnormalities is the mythic figure, our psychic diseases are not imaginary, but rather imaginal (Corbin). Better still they are psychic diseases of fantasy, the sufferings of fantasies, of mythic realities, the incarnation of archetypal events
