Final Answer :
Explanation :
Carl Jung's theory of the collective unconscious suggests that all human beings inherit universal memories, symbols, and images that are present in the unconscious mind. It is not based on concepts of envy or liturgy but rather on the idea that there are archetypes or fundamental patterns of human behavior that are shared across cultures and time periods. Therefore, option C is the correct choice.
