"Whatever is not conscious will be experienced as fate" — Carl Jung

86991-C-G-Jung-Quote-Whatever-is-not-conscious-will-be-experienced-as

Above, the epigraph of Craig Nova's 2004 novel, "Cruisers."

I couldn't quite decide on the meaning of what Jung was expressing.

Was he saying that everything that happens to us without our conscious intent is thus an accident?

That we should simply accept the very limited field of action we have in determining our direction and outcome?

Or was he making things easy for us, saying that the sum of our conscious acts and everything else is always unity, totality, one, regardless of the shifting proportions of will and fate within the zero-sum equation/game he calls life?
