Example text

After all, we cannot credit a child with the psychology of an adult. Strangely enough, however, unconsciously the child already has all the psychology of an adult. As it is, from birth onward—one could even say already from before birth—the individual is what it will be. In the disposition, the basic blueprint is already there very early. Such early dreams come out of the totality of the personality, and that is why they allow us to see a great deal of what we later miss in it. Later, life forces us to make one-sided differentiations.

From there I received the news that the dream had come true. In a Spanish town he came to such a square. ” He went into the side street—and the horses were there!

The series does not form a chronological, consecutive order in the sense of our temporal order. That is why it is so difficult to tell what comes first and what later.
