It is the shade of our Ichs, the caricature of itself. The monkey has in our widths nothing more of that animal in Indian dream interpretations in himself in which he was valid as holy, but often calls our desires and passions in the sense as he appears to us in the vision that to us is made by the unconscious clear.
