Nobody knew what a telescope was and what it could do.
Refresh and try again. I can also confirm, from my own experience, the reading mistake. Because of this quality of simultaneity, I have picked on the term “synchronicity” to designate a hypothetical factor equal in rank to causality as a principle of explanation. Synchronicity as meaningful prijciple is real and further research into psychic phenomena is warranted.
There are some moments in which he is a little confusing, especially when referring to statistics, to the point the Editors had jun add a note explaining what was going conncting.
Made my brain tired but opened up new vistas of thinking about things. An acquaintance of mine saw and experienced in a dream the sudden death of a friend, with all the characteristic details.
Yet that would not decrease how remarkable they were.
Among the subliminal contents we must distinguish perceptions from what I would call an inexplicable “knowledge,” or an “immediacy” of psychic images.
For instance, in business we deal with staffing issues in the retail environment. The results vary according to the specific gift of the individual subject.

Jung introduced the idea of synchronicity to strip off the fantasy, magic, and superstition which surround and are provoked by unpredictable, startling, and impressive events that, like these, appear to be connected.
It is generally believed that numbers were invented or thought out by man, and are therefore nothing but concepts of quantities, containing nothing that was not previously put into them by the human jjng.
As though to make this startling result even more impressive, we found that use had been made of unconscious principlr. They are not explanations, they provide no understanding, and they indicate no grander existence. Dec 20, Vagabond of Letters rated it really liked it. But the coincidence with the third lunar conjunction is so remarkable that it looks like a deliberate arrangement in connectinb of astrology.
In all these cases, whether syndhronicity is a question of spatial or junf temporal ESP, we find a simultaneity of the normal or ordinary state with another state or experience which is not causally derivable from it, and whose objective existence can only be verified afterwards.
As I have said, it is impossible, with our present resources, to explain ESP, or the ab of meaningful coincidence, as a phenomenon of energy. This, regardless of the subject’s skepticism, immediately appeals to his unconscious readiness to witness a miracle, and to the hope, latent in all men, that such a thing may yet be possible. The first series of experiments consisted in each subject trying to guess the cards times.
A world with magic seems a more interesting and wonderful world. Other than that the examples are amazing, the review of parapsychological literature very interesting and the final step of the Astrological experiment very revealing.
I have only to add here that, of the conjunctions and oppositions, those of Mars and Venus are synchromicity less important than the rest, as will readily be appreciated from the following consideration: View all 33 comments.
Kramer, Uber den Bau der Korallenriffe. Recently it fell to my colleague to make the table arrangement for a number of people who were invited to dinner. We have fish for lunch. But that does not mean that such events do not exist. Nevertheless, it must be remembered that with Rhine the first series of experiments generally produced the best results, which then quickly fell off.
But it is also prijciple that, over and above the already synchdonicity physiological effects of proton radiation, psychic effects can occur which would rob astrological statements of their chance nature and pinciple them within range of a causal explanation. Primus cum Sol in viro, et Sol vel Luna in femina, aut Luna in utrisque, fuerint in locis se respicientibus trigono, vel hexagono aspectu. These represent meaningless coincidences but connectihg which we must prepare for.
For instance Herr Synchronictiy Mr. In the end, the failure of many readers to grasp that his project was shaped by quantum theory as filtered through his relationship with Pauli conspired to damage his reputation.
Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle
This first result seemed to me somewhat suspicious. Liliane Frey-Rohn, for her help with the astrological material. Probably would have given this a higher rating if I had understood it better.
Yet, I am not numb to the passion that drives a man who works to prove the impossible. While it is unlikely that a bug would fly in while a woman spoke about bugs, that is only one of many coincidences that acausql have happened that day. One has the impression that these methods, and others like them, create favorable conditions for the occurrence of meaningful coincidences.
Since this is obviously not the case, we have no alternative but to assume that distance is physically variable, and may in certain circumstances be reduced to vanishing point by a psychic condition. Since the remotest times men have used numbers to establish meaningful coincidences, that acausql, coincidences that can be interpreted. In this book Jung was attempting to show how synchronicity works with the psyche, to prove its existence.
All the people who had contacted her over the years, sure that they had proof, blamed her when they couldn’t demonstrate it.
