imaginative space: "Bridges
perhaps more than any other single structure, can radically alter the
face of a landscape. A massive redistribution of imaginative space
can result from the construction of a major new bridge. Indeed this
was part of their attraction to early
visionary designers." P. Bishop, "The Soul of the Bridge: A study
Mundi Psychology." Paper delivered at Inaugural Conference of the London
for Archetypal Studies. London, England. June, 1987.

Psyche's honey: "In
one of the lighter of his thousand ways of speaking of the psyche,
(C.G.) Jung conjures up the Greek sense of butterfly: the quick-moving
creature, changeful of hue, reeling drunkenly from flower to flower,
