But’, we read, ‘I was especially uneasy about the dizziness that always attacked me when I looked down from a height’ (GE 4, 278). To combat his hypersensitivity Goethe forced himself to listen to the roll of the drums when the evening tattoo was being played; and, to combat his dizziness, he forced himself to climb the tower of the cathedral, precisely the object whose aspect he had found so ungeheuer: All alone, I climbed up to the highest part of the cathedral tower and sat in its so-called ‘neck’, under the knop or ‘crown’, as it is named, for a good quarter of an hour, until I dared to go back out in the open air and stand on a platform that is hardly a yard square and has hardly any handhold.
37 Given the Jung family’s devotion to reading scripture, Jung’s own fantasy may well have been inspired, at least in part, by the Book of Exodus where Moses, desirous to see the ‘glory’ of Yahweh, is permitted to see His backside. (According to scripture, the prophet has to be put in a cleft of a rock, and Yahweh will cover him with his hand, when He passes. ),39 and it is interesting to note that, only a page away from the account of the Basel cathedral episode in Memories, Dreams, Reﬂections, in the footnote on Jung’s legendary kinship with Goethe, we read that Jung’s grandfather saw Goethe in Weimar only once – and then from behind (und nur von hinten) (MDR, 52).
Similarly, in an Eranos lecture given in 1938, ‘Psychological Aspects of the Mother Archetype’, Jung explained the tradition of godparents in terms of the avoidance of a variant of the ‘family romance’ – the investing of the parents with divine status. ‘To the personal parents’, he maintains, humankind has always instinctively added ‘the preexistent divine pair, the “god”-father and “god”-mother of the newborn child’, in order that the child should never, ‘from sheer unconsciousness or shortsighted rationalism’ (aus Unbewußtheit oder kurzsichtigem Rationalismus) – those twin enemies in Jung’s thought – forget itself and ‘invest its own parents with divinity’ (CW 9/i §172).
