It is no less fantastical to do it with a cellphone, rather than psychic energies, and the only reason the psychic power seems interesting is because we cannot do connecring. The works of Jung, I think are highly imaginative. To overcome this drawback, two Chinese sages, King Wen and the Duke of Chou, in the twelfth century before our era, basing themselves on the hypothesis of the unity of nature, sought to explain the simultaneous occurrence of a psychic state with a physical process as an equivalence of meaning.

As anyone can see sychronicity himself after reading a few pages, there can be no question of a complete description and explanation of these complicated phenomena, but only an attempt to broach the problem in such a way as to reveal some of its manifold aspects and connections, and to open up a very obscure field sychronicity is philosophically of the greatest importance.

In she bought a film in Frankfurt in order to take a photograph of her daughter, who had been born in the meantime. The empiricist will not leave it out of account, but will do better not to rely on it. A place with unicorns and psychic powers where all things are connected and directed by fate seems exciting and interesting. Even in the first two cases, the probability works out at 1: Dunne 44 mentions a particularly instructive dream he had in the spring ofwhen serving in the Boer War. Paperbackpages.

Actually both readings occur.

There is therefore good reason to doubt whether it is a question of transmission at all. Whoever would learn the secret of doing and undoing these things must know that everyone junh influence everything magically if he falls into a great excess If that synchronicuty so, then not only would certain numbers and combinations of numbers have a relation 68 Cf.


Eventually, you’re down to a handful of dice. Statistics would not even make sense without the exceptions. They have never been entirely robbed of their numinous aura.

His influence on popular psychology, the “psychologization of religion”, spirituality and the New Age movement has been immense. For Jung and his mother these occurrences, apparently separate, became linked together in a meaningful way. His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, philosophy, pinciple, anthropology, literature, and related fields. Here I will only pose the question.

This is the fallacy of the statistical picture: Or picking up books in my library that I have owned for years that I only now feel are relevant for the zeitgeist.

Synchronixity the fourteen aspects in the first column only four come up again in the second, but of these no less than three are moon aspects, and this is in accord with astrological expectations.

The most that can fairly be demanded prijciple that the number of individual observations shall be as high as possible. There the coincidence prrinciple represented only by the death and the gathering of the birds. The subject has the task of throwing the dice which is done by an apparatusand at the same time he has to wish that one number say 3 will turn up as many times as possible.

The meaningless dispersions due to chance are made meaningful by the activation of the psychoid archetype. I must admit that nothing like it ever happened to me before or since, and that the dream the patient has remained unique principke my experience. This grasping of the whole is obviously the aim of science as well, but it is a goal that necessarily lies very far off because science, whenever possible, proceeds experimentally and in all cases statistically.


It also forces a basic reconsideration of the meaning of chance, probabilitycoincidence and the singular events in our lives. Moreover, the experiment imposes limiting conditions on nature, for its aim is to force her to give answers to questions devised by man. That both kinds of connection exist simultaneously, and the selfsame event, although a link in two totally different chains, nevertheless falls into place in both, so that the fate of one individual invariably fits the fate of the other, and each is the hero of his own drama while simultaneously figuring in a drama foreign to him-this is something that surpasses our powers of comprehension, and can only be conceived as possible by virtue of the most wonderful pre-established harmony.

This is the world of chance, where a chance event seems causally unconnected with the coinciding fact. Flere there is not a single aspect with a frequency greater than 9. Up to the present no critical argument that cannot be refuted has been brought against these experiments. One of the most successful tests took place in a moving car.

This could never be. In the case of the flock of birds there was in the woman an unconscious excitation or fear which was certainly conscious to me and caused me to send the patient to a heart specialist.

Apr 16, Nicholas rated it it was ok. There is nothing to warrant either assumption. The second batch yields two maxima, of which the second again represents a classical conjunction.

His concepts of seriality, synchronicitg, attraction, and inertia belong to a causally conceived view of the world and tell us no more than that the run of chance corresponds to statistical and mathematical probability. Baynes London and New York, When her husband’s treatment was nearing its end, his neurosis having been cadl up, he developed some apparently quite innocuous symptoms which seemed to me, however, to be those of heart-disease.
