Carl Jung – last interview before his death, BBC video 1959. (+ FR subtitles)





 Carl Jung – last interview 
(2 years before his death), by John Freeman, BBC 1959. (BBC video + FR subtitles)

Watch this great interview of Jung and his stunning thoughts on various subjects, including on psi phenomena and the beyond-spacetime psyche.

 Above: A garden puff before entering his home in Bollingen.

On life after death—and beyond spacetime—, he said (at 26'08” on the YouTube video):

“There are those peculiar faculties of the psyche that’re not entirely confined to space & time. Then what? When the psyche is not under that obligation to live in time and space alone—and obvioulsly it doesn’t—then, to that extent, the psyche is not submitted to those laws; and that means a practical continuation of life, of a sort of psychical existence, beyond time and space.”

Maya cities-network discovered in Peten, near Tikal, Guatemala

(extracts from http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-42916261)

Researchers have found more than 60,000 hidden Maya ruins in Guatemala in a major archaeological breakthrough.

Laser technology (called Lidar "light detection and ranging") was used to survey digitally beneath the forest canopy, revealing houses, palaces, elevated highways, and defensive fortifications. (Most notable is) a fortification wall running for kilometers.

The landscape, near already-known Maya cities, is thought to have been home to millions more people than other research had previously thought. The researchers mapped over 810 square miles (2,100 sq km) in northern Peten. Results suggest that Central America supported an advanced civilisation more akin to sophisticated cultures like ancient Greece or China.

 

 Hidden insights

Maya civilisation, at its peak some 1,500 years ago, covered an area about twice the size of medieval England, with an estimated population of around five million.
"With this new data it's no longer unreasonable to think that there were 10 to 15 million people there," said Mr Estrada-Belli, "including many living in low-lying, swampy areas that many of us had thought uninhabitable."
Most of the 60,000 newly identified structures are thought to be stone platforms that would have supported the average pole-and-thatch Maya home. The archaeologists were struck by the "incredible defensive features", which included walls, fortresses and moots. One of the hidden finds is a seven-storey pyramid so covered in vegetation that it practically melts into the jungle. Another discovery that surprised archaeologists was the complex network of causeways linking all the Maya cities in the area. The raised highways, allowing easy passage even during rainy seasons, were wide enough to suggest they were heavily trafficked and used for trade.
The Lidar survey was the first part of a three-year project led by a Guatemalan organisation that promotes cultural heritage preservation. It will eventually map more than 5,000 sq miles (14,000 sq km) of Guatemala's lowlands.

October 2017 Interstellar visitor ‘Oumuamua’ being checked for signs of alien technology

In a previous post, I had dispatched the NASA/JPL information about an interstellar visitor A/2017 U1, now called Oumuamua, that approached our sun on September 9, and whose trajectory took it on a path near Earth, with its closest approach to Earth,  within 15 million miles only, on October 14, 2017. Oumuamua came from the direction of the constellation Lyra, at about 57,000 mph (92,000 km/h) relative to the sun, and was observed dashing away at 97,200 mph (156,400 km/h) toward the constellation Pegasus (thus enigmatically increasing its speed by nearly 71%).

On Dec 12, 2017, the BBC science-environment published this news online:
Artwork: Observations of 'Oumuamua’ noted its unusual elongated shape

A project searching for intelligent life in the cosmos is going to check the first known interstellar asteroid for signs of alien technology.
The odd-shaped object was detected as it sped towards the Sun on 19 October.
Its properties suggested it originated around another star, making it the first such body to be spotted in our cosmic neighbourhood.
An initiative backed by billionaire Yuri Milner will use a radio telescope to listen for signals from it.
The team's efforts will begin on Wednesday, with astronomers observing the asteroid, which is currently speeding away from our Solar System, across four different radio frequency bands.
The first set of observations at the Robert C Byrd Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia is due to last for 10 hours.
Previous observations of the object, called 'Oumuamua,’ have noted its strange, elongated shape, making it look a bit like a cigar.
Mr Milner's Breakthrough Listen programme released a statement which read: "Researchers working on long-distance space transportation have previously suggested that a cigar or needle shape is the most likely architecture for an interstellar spacecraft, since this would minimise friction and damage from interstellar gas and dust."
Andrew Siemion, director of the Berkeley SETI Research Center, who is part of the initiative, said: "'Oumuamua's presence within our Solar System affords Breakthrough Listen an opportunity to reach unprecedented sensitivities to possible artificial transmitters and demonstrate our ability to track nearby, fast-moving objects."
