reciprocity and depression

"So thinking has to be a process both clarifying and mysterious, active and receptive?"

Yep. Or else it serves "to little other purpose, than to waste the spirits, the force of the mind meeting with no resistance, but wasting itself in the air, like our arm when it misses its aim." If/when we don't "go through the obscure (to us, because unconscious) channels of the frog brain" to "interact in/with/as the world," we suffer from loss of dynamic connection ("reciprocity") with the world and with each other, as well as within ourselves. That's indeed the current form of the story.
