Even saucerx who would never have thought that a religious problem could be a serious matter that concerned them personally are beginning to ask themselves fundamental questions.

Jung, in Flying Saucers? Jung’s primary concern in Flying Saucers is not with the reality or unreality of UFOs but with their psychic aspect.

Rather than speculate about their possible nature and extraterrestrial origin as alleged spacecraft, he asks what it may signify that these phenomena, whether real or imagined, are seen in such numbers just at a time when humankind is menaced as never before in history. The UFOs represent, in Fling phrase, “a modern myth.

While Jung is known mainly for his theories on the nature of the unconscious mind, he did have an interest in the paranormal. In this essay, Jung applies his analytical skills to the Juung phenomenon. Rather than assuming that the modern prevalence of UFO sightings are due to extraterrestrial craft, Jung reserves judgment on their origin and connects UFOs with archetypal imagery, concluding that they have become a “living myth.

Jung treats the topic as he does flhing and art. At times the reading is arduous and spoken in a way that only a psychology buff would really appreciate. He also uses terms that he invented in other places so it takes a little research to figure out what he means.

Flying Saucers : A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Sky

UFOlogy enthusiasts should read this to expand their horizons in alternative explanations to the UFO phenomena. One person found this helpful.

Jung told us everything we now think we are learning about this thing. This meme got picked up in the awful movie “Interstellar”. There is much more to this saucer than merely alien abduction and sky gods. Carl Jung was telling us about our direct connection to the Divine. If you interpret Jung through the lens of the kundalini it all makes sense. YMMV, of course, but I am right about this. Jung is szucers a heavy and healthy read.

Fabulous concepts and profound insights by one of the greatest thinkers of all time! Each page contains numerous gems. What do Carl Jung and Allen Hynek have in common? Both were very skeptical men of science, that turned their professional knowledge and attention to the Then very hot topic of UFO’s, and in the end they both became believers and spent most of the rest of their lives studying this incredible phenomena. Jung was probably sick to death of hearing all the buzz in the early 50’s about flying saucers and decided to discover the psychological underpinnings of what he saw as a form of mass hysteria.

He began his research, as Hynek and any good scientist would, by examining the cases first hand.

As Jung was skeptical that the average man on the street could not provide accurate eyewitness accounts, he reserved his interviews to “Professional observers”, pilots, military personnel, police and radar operators. Over time he became unnerved, as he realized that these people were not only credible witness’s, but were clearly quite sane.


The big difference was that Jung still feared ridicule from his peers, so he never came out and said he was a believer, but it is very poignant that at the end of this short book, he leaves the topic open, by stating that either humanity is suffering some kind of mass hallucination, or we ARE being visited by aliens.

He postulates that either option should give us plenty to be concerned about. It is interesting to note that Jungs close friends claimed that he was fascinated by the UFO phenomenon for the remainder of his life.
