UFOs in the daily Press:

While a majority of people not familiar with Ufology were lead to the idea that Carl Gustav Jung was convinced that UFOs are a figment of the collective psyche, it is not so.

New York Herald Tribune, July 30, 1958

Dr. Jung Says 'Flying Disks' Suggest Quasi-Human Pilots.


Associated Press report from Alamogordo, N.M., July 29.

Dr. Carl Jung, Swiss psychologist, says in a report released yesterday that unidentified flying objects are real, and show signs of intelligent guidance by quasi-human pilots.

"I can only say for certain that these things are not a mere rumour. Something has been seen. A purely psychological explanation is ruled out."

Dr. Jung, who had started his research on UFOs in 1944, issued his statement through the UFO-Filter Centre of the Aerial Phenomena Research Association (A.P.R.O.) here. He said:

"I have gathered a mass of observations of unidentified flying objects since 1944. The disks do not behave in accordance with physical laws, but as though without weight."

"If the extraterrestrial origin of these phenomena should be confirmed, this would prove the existence of an intelligent interplanetary relationship. What such a fact might mean for humanity cannot be predicted."

"But it would put us without doubt in the extremely precarious position of primitive communities in conflict with the superior culture of the whites."

"That the construction of these machines proves a scientific technique immensely superior to ours cannot be disputed."

The United States Air Force has said that investigations of flying saucer reports over the last ten years have produced no evidence that such things exist. It said last November that investigations of 5,700 reported sightings showed that the mysterious objects were balloons, aircraft, astronomical phenomena, birds, fireworks, or hoaxes - among other things.
