Describing the use of symbols in philosophy and religion, this book connects the Taoist symbol of the self - the diamond body - to the tetrahedron, as well as to the four valences of the carbon molecule, the basis of all life. Following these ideas further, the discussion details the close correspondence between the ancient wisdom of Lao Tsu and the symbolism of Jungian psychology, and also conjectures about the possibility of a more image-oriented view of science.
