"In the last analysis life is the realization of a whole, that is, of a self for which reason this realization can also be called 'individuation.' All life is bound to individual carriers who realize it, and it is simply inconceivable without them. But every carrier is charged with an individual destiny and destination, and the realization of these alone makes sense of life."
