A Myth in the Making explores the intersection between psychology and the phenomenon of UFO sightings. Their frequent lack of credible evidence make UFO sightings a question of belief.
In fact, many of them can be disproved through logical explanations.
Yet, a lot of people want to believe UFOs are real, since the vastness of the universe makes it hard to imagine we are alone in it.
The myths revolving around UFOs and alien planets have a lot of impact on our imagination of outer space, while being reflections of what surrounds us at the same time - since we have no choice to visualize it other than through our imagination.
Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, who dedicated a book ("Flying Saucers") to the phenomenon in the late 1950s, presumed UFO sightings to be humanity's projection of its existential angst.
Interestingly, statistics show that especially during times of crises, UFO sightings around the world seem to increase.
