It is fascinating to follow how these two intellectual giants argue from different sides to find mutual enlightment [ sic ].

Though he was a practising clinician and considered himself to be a scientist, much of his life’s work was spent exploring tangential areas such as Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, and sociology, as well as literature and the arts. Jung recovered, but Pauli subsequently became very ill and died in as a result of pancreatic cancer. In that regard I am very happy that Jung gave it a very loud and clear scientific voice that should silence down anyone still dwelling on the “Dawkins delusion”.

Oddly enough, the variant of the name affected the very same vowel which I too had misread a instead of ebut her unconscious misread it another way i instead of e. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, The fact that Jung did not recognize the flawed methodology throughout the experiments troubled me. That numbers have an archetypal foundation is not, by the way, a conjecture of mine but of certain mathematicians, as we shall see in due course. The possibility of the pack being shuffled in some arbitrary way is guarded against by an apparatus which shuffles the cards automatically, independently of the experimenter.

He speaks back and forth at some length about various suppositions and possibilities, but never develops any convincing insight. Secundus cum in viro Luna, in uxore Sol eodem modo disponuntur.

Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle

Synchronicity as meaningful coincidences is real and further research into psychic phenomena is warranted. I had heard similar stories from other people. Jung just can’t disappoint a curious person.

He opened the window, and in flew a small goldish-green colored scarabeid beetle. We have to remind ourselves over and over again of the merely statistical validity of natural laws and of the effect of the statistical method in eliminating all unusual occurrences, if we want to lend an ear to such an hypothesis.


During five months of analysis with Rosenbaum, Pauli recorded hundreds of dreams. From this and in discussion with Wolfgang Pauli he formulated the tetradic schema of our quantum based physical existence: The results are shown in Table III, though I have confined myself here to the maximal figures that clearly exceed the median.

At the same time the subject, separated by a screen from the experimenter, is given the task of guessing the signs as they are turned up. Jung proposes the possibility of an acausal relationship between events. The most elementary quality about an object is whether it is one or many. In this session, his patient was in the midst of relating an intense dream she had had in which someone gave her a piece of gold jewelry in the shape of a scarab beetle.

Still plenty to delve into with the astrological and I Ching connections that fascinated Jung so, and I am confident that if I press on with his writing, my dissertation writing will hit the same synchronous notes that are alarming for many but heavenly for those properly tuned in.

On first working out the statistics I was put off the trail by a number of errors which I fortunately discovered in time. The connecting link appears to be the disturbances of the earth’s magnetic field, which in their turn are due to fluctuations in the proton radiation from the sun. Unlike concepts, they are based not on any psychic conditions but on the quality of being themselves, on a “so-ness” that cannot be expressed by an intellectual concept.

Synchronistic events rest on the simultaneous occurrence of two different psychic states. This was the first book I had ever read by him though I had read several books about him. When they come around it is abundantly clear and is always amazing! Even more remarkable is the fact that time is not in principle a prohibiting factor either; that is to say, the scanning of a series of cards to be turned up in the future produces a score that exceeds chance probability.

I was going through a British phase and I purchased all of their albums. Clearly not the strongest work by Jung but maybe one of the bravest ideas in the th century. Beyond counting cards, it was later discovered that several of Rhine’s assistants were helping certain subjects to cheatthat subjects were often allowed to handle the cards, and that the original cards were often thin enough that the symbols could be seen through them when backlit.


Physicists with a psychological or spiritual inclination, like David Peat and Victor Mansfield, 38 have taken note of synchronicity and written of its validity as an experimental conceptual frame for exploring the connection between quantum and classical physics. Inasmuch as chance maxima and minima occur, they are facts whose nature I set out to explore.

The philosophical principle that underlies our conception of natural law is causality. These two aspects have long been mentioned in the old literature as marriage synchroniccity, and they therefore represent the oldest tradition. It is improbable that it would ever happen in anyone’s experience. Are these the whimsicalities of chance, aczusal the suggestive effects of the name, as Stekel seems to suggest, or are they “meaningful coincidences”?

At all events an affective expectation is present in one form or another even though it juung be denied. If there are flaws in the test, the results will be useless. The mantic procedures owe their effectiveness to 13 By which i mean a subject chosen at random, and not one with specific gifts.

Jung inadvertently proves that there is a mental process that we can call ‘beautiful thinking’ Then, at the eleventh hour, Professor Fierz, on 12 As my statistics show, the result becomes blurred with larger figures.

Thus far the conditions for a total reaction are positively ideal. Horsetrader is a lawyer, Herr Kalberer Mr.

Apr 16, Nicholas rated it it was ok. 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 it.

The difficulties of the problem and its presentation seemed to me too great; too great the intellectual responsibility without which such subject cannot be tackled; too inadequate, in the long run, my scientific training. Jung proposed and developed the concepts of extraversion and introversion; archetypes, and the collective unconscious.
