“The alchemist saw the union of opposites under the symbol of the tree… the symbol of the cosmic tree rooted in this world and cosmic tree mangrowing up to heaven — the tree that is also man.

In the history of symbols this tree is described as the way of life itself, a growing into that which eternally is and does not change; which springs from the union of opposites and, by its eternal presence, also makes that union possible.” (Jung, CW 9i, para. 198)
