    7. 7. Jung and Rhine<br />Met<br />Conversed<br />Opinionated<br />Letters<br />
    8. 8. “It was exciting to watch him [Jung] and Rhine together … Jung the cosmopolite, the man of enormous erudition,” and Rhine, “a man whom only America could have produced—quiet, low-spoken, intense, with that slow-burning fuse of humor innate in his speech, gravely deferential to Jung, putting his problems before Jung without any plea for help, any servility, any expectation of praise, with the obvious feeling that the problem of man and his nature was so sacrosanct and vital a one that Jung was obliged to help him, as he was to tell Jung what he knew.’’<br />William Sloane<br />
    9. 9. Jung’s Interest in Parapsychology<br />Jung has inspired the New Age movement with his interest in occultism, Eastern religions, the I Ching, and mythology.<br />With his cousin Helene (&quot;Helly&quot;) Preiswerk, he conducted spiritistic experiments.<br />According to William Sloane, Jung was intrigued with not only astrology, but the Chinese method of divination that he termed “rune sticks”. A type of divinity. <br />While Jung was still a student, he read various works on occultism and attended Spiritualist séances. <br />In Jung’s later years, he became absorbed with the ancient cosmologies and spent a considerable amount of time analyzing Gnostic, alchemical, and mystical systems of thought (Drury, 1992). <br />
    10. 10. Always interested in spirituality and parapsychology, Carl Jung dabbled in the arts of the spiritual world, which led him to the exploration of the realms of the human unconscious that was often being ignored in modern-day medicine.<br />The old Chinese text, The Secret of the Gold Flower, awakened Jung&apos;s interest in alchemy. His major study in this field, Psychologie und Alchemie, was published in German in 1944. In his own library Jung had a number of rare alchemical books and folios.<br />
    11. 11. Denotes a seemingly significant coincidence in time of two or more events that are related but not causally connected (Oxford Dictionary of Psychology, 2006)<br />It is about a causal connection of two or more psycho-physic phenomena<br />NOT about cause and effect<br />Synchronicity<br />
    12. 12. Individualization<br />Personal development that involves establishing a connection between the ego and the self. <br />The ego is the center of consciousness; the self is the center of the total psyche, including both the conscious and the unconscious.<br />There was a religious instinct: that psychic energy was, in essence, spiritual; that we are driven by this instinct to become whole and to strive for meaning. <br />
    13. 13. Psychology and Alchemy<br />NOT the transformation of material lead into gold<br />BUT the transformation of the human soul on its path to perfection<br />Alchemy<br />
    14. 14. UFOs<br />Are UFOs real or are they mere products of fantasy which are psychically projected?<br />He leaves the impression that the UFO phenomenon exists as a projection of our collective psyche<br />No clear answer found<br />
    15. 15. Jung, Freud and the Paranormal<br />Freud’s theories<br />6 year meltdown <br />The Red Book<br />Fantasies of great floods sweeping over northern Europe<br />Prophetic visions of World War I<br />
    16. 16. Spring 1909, Vienna<br />Jung asked for Freud’s opinion on precognition and parapsychology<br />Loud cracks<br />Perfect example of paranormal phenomenon<br />Jung and Freud<br />
    17. 17. Jung’s Point of View<br />He was very open minded. He believed in the occult and wanted to find answers but since it was hard to find these answers his point of view wasn’t very clear. He didn’t want to get too personal either because he always had this feeling of obligation to stay more in the scientific side of view, so truth be told, Jung’s point of view in parapsychology is very fuzzy. <br />
