Jung insisted that he was a scientist, pure and simple, and that his psychology was based on hard empirical evidence.  But throughout his life, Jung was deeply interested in the occult, the paranormal, the mystical, and the magical.  From his early attendance at séances to his public announcements about the nature of UFOs, Jung explored a variety of strange phenomena that mainstream science either ignored or dismissed as nonsense.
