Here is a reproduction of the Paul Klee painting to which Junko referred in the lecture:

Individuation Journal, No. 2 (1995)
Sumi ink and acrylic on Mylar
80 x 42 in.
Text from Erich Fromm:
"As long as one was an integral part
of that world, unaware of the possibilities
and responsibilities of individual
action, one did not need to be
afraid of it. When one becomes an individual one stands alone and faces the world in all its perilous and
overpowering aspects.
