This description of Elijah connects him with the later description of Philemon.

Black Books

In “On the Psychological Aspects of the Figure of the Kore” (1941), Jung described these episodes as follows:

“In an underground house, actually in the underworld, there lives an old magician and prophet with his’ daughter.’

She is, however, not really his daughter; she is a dancer, a very loose person, but is blind and seeks healing” (CV\f 9, pt. 1, § 360 ).

This Description of Elijah Connects him with the later description of Philemon.

Jung noted that this “shows the unknown woman as a mythological figure in the beyond (that means in the unconscious).

She is soror or filia mystica of a hierophant or ‘philosopher,’ evidently a parallel to those mystic syzigies which are to be met with in the figures of Simon Magus and Helen, Zosimus and Theosebia, Comarius and Cleopatra, etc.

Our dream-figure fits in best with Helen” (ibid.,§ 372). For Jung’s commentary on this entry, see LN, pp. The Black Books, Vol. III, Page 196, fn 149
