Resumo: This paper discusses the concept of exoconsciousness within the framework of Karl Jaspers’ General Psychopathology, presenting evidence for the UFO extraterrestrial experience to be reclassified from pathological to normal. The recommended reclassification is based on psychiatric advancements in Jaspers’ psychopathology that lead to acceptance of the quantum-based concept of exoconsciousness. A physician and philosopher of his time, Jaspers’ psychopathology fits comfortably in a Western Newtonian and Kantian dualistic orientation. 1.) And yet, by identifying psychiatric and philosophical limits and dilemmas, he creates an intellectual framework for the possibilities inherent in quantum science. 2.) By identifying the importance of the cultural context in defining psychopathology, he further creates a necessary opening for redefining the UFO extraterrestrial experience as normal within the emerging 21st Century culture of contact.
