I recently heard Jung credited as saying "to give birth to the ancients in a new time is creation," though I have no reference for such a statement. I assume this means that the archetypes and deities can return back around again if we invite them and acknowledge them (and maybe do the work to open the way). What would it mean to restore the wisdom of Athena or the beauty of Aphrodite into our core cultural values? Does anyone know where this statement can be found or have other thoughts about it?
I'll do some hunting for the quote. I hunt better at night.
