"...It is generally believed that numbers were invented or thought out by man, and are therefore nothing but concepts of quantities, containing nothing that was not previously put into them by the human intellect. But it is equally possible that numbers were found or discovered .... They would then have .... the quality of being pre-existent to consciousness, and hence, on occasion , of conditioning it rather than being conditioned by it...." - Synchronicity, (Princeton Unversity Press, 1960), p.41
