Background

Pauli told him that his symbol filled dreams were driving him to distraction.

Although the source is Jung, the dreams were Pauli's.

A description of the experience

C G Jung – Preface to Psyche and Symbol

It unfortunately happens that intellectual people pay no attention to their feeling life and so they lose contact with the world that feels, living in a world that thinks, a world merely of thoughts.

When the hard boiled rationalist mentioned above [Pauli] came to consult me for the first time, he was in such a state of panic that not only he, but I myself felt the wind blowing over our way from the lunatic asylum.
