'First published in 1958, Jung's concern is not with the reality or unreality of 'Unidentified Flying Objects', but rather with their psychic aspect, focussing on the significance of the fact that these phenomena are seen in such great numbers. This leads to a consideration of UFO'S as 'visionary rumours', a myth in the making, the centre of a quasi-religious experience, as carries of technological and salvationist fantasises, projections of the unconscious psychic contents and as symbols of the 'self' or psychic totality.'
