The man-shaped universe does not appeal to me.
I have been fascinated by synchronicity for years now and wanted to go back to the source itself, but wasn’t as satisfied by it as I would have liked. Their results must therefore be taken into account in any assessment of synchronistic phenomena. Up to the present no critical argument that cannot be refuted has been brought against these experiments.
But where we are dealing with ephemeral events which leave no demonstrable traces behind them except fragmentary memories in people’s minds, then a single witness no longer suffices, nor would several witnesses be enough to make a unique event appear absolutely credible. Flere there is not a single aspect with a frequency greater than 9.
Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle
connnecting Thank you for your feedback. Now with quantum entanglement on the tip of everyone’s tongue, I feel like this book is worth a read. Jung is trying to be scientific and concise, about a very difficult subject. I personally would add two thoughts to Jung’s discussion: These fluctuations also have an influence on “radio weather” by disturbing the ionosphere that reflects the radio waves.
In these circumstances the time factor seems to have been eliminated by a psychic function or psychic condition which is also capable of abolishing the time factor. If, conecting a text-book of mathematics tells us, a group of objects is deprived of every single one of its properties or characteristics, there still remains, at the end, its number, which seems to indicate that number is something irreducible.
Why obsess over a world of false fantasies when there is a world of real, living, breathing miracles connectinf there waiting for you, every day?
In the second case there was the half-unconscious fear and the threat of a lethal end principlf no possibility of an adequate recognition of the situation. But I imagine that in their principlr too, as with me, a secret, mutual connivance existed between the material and the psychic state of the astrologer. Jung wrote, “Professor Einstein was my guest on several occasions at dinner. The mantic procedures owe their effectiveness to 13 By which i mean a subject chosen at random, and not one with specific gifts.
Jung considered individuation to be the central process of human development. Of these fifteen aspects, a moon aspect occurs four times for women, whereas only six moon aspects are distributed among the thirty-five other possible values.
So learned and yet so open to possibilities he didn’t fully understand. Meaningful coincidences- which are to be distinguished from meaningless chance groupings 41 – therefore seem to rest on an archetypal foundation.
It’s so interesting to see such a great mind wrestle with what appears – then and now – to be easily looked down upon as mysticism or just plain chance. No fish had been there the previous evening. Only in this way can space and time be relativized to a certain extent, thereby reducing the chances of a causal process. It may lead us to an Individuated awareness where the Self has been acknowledged.
On the other hand, Paul Flambart Preuves et bases de I’astrologie scientifique pp. Jung invented the association word test and contributed the word complex to psychology, and first described the “introvert” and “extrovert” types.
The first proportion is significant even when taken by itself, for it shows that the coincidence is a very improbable one. Jan 30, Judee rated it liked it. Since we have an inveterate conviction of the absolute validity of causal law, we regard this explanation of chance as being quite adequate.
I must admit that nothing like it ever happened to me before or since, and that the dream the patient has remained unique in my experience. The first problem is his reliance on research by Joseph Rhinewho coined the term ‘parapsychology’ to describe his studies. As an example I would cite the “duplication of cases” which is a phenomenon well known to every doctor. A bridge between the known and the unknown, between the conscious and the unconscious.
Emergent Strategy Development for Organizations. A fascinating, but unscientific, examination of affective coincidences. Even the careful recording and verification of a large number of such cases, as in the work of Gurney, Myers, and Podmore54 have made next to no impression on the scientific world. My props to Dr.

How often have we not seen the truth condemned! Jung-lnstitut, IV; Zurich, If they did exist, we would come to expect them. Other than that connectinb examples a Amazingly bold book. The average result showed 6. Here I will only point out that it is the decisive factors in the conscious psyche, the archetypes, which constitute the structure of the collective unconscious.
The second problem is that his astrological study is not convincing at all and is very complicated to understand for someone not familiar with astrology. Twenty of these were then drawn by lot by the subject. Later he learned that some of his relatives had been attending seances with a medium: It was a great way for me to start reading Jung.
Eventually, you’re down to a handful of dice. One can ‘burn the midnight oil’ without actually having any oil at hand, and just because a man gets attacked by an escaped tiger in NYC, that is not evidence of an urban tiger epidemic.
Throughout his career, Rhine’s work was plagued with errors, and his ESP experiments were so poorly-designed as to be useless. The first problem is that the book is not well organized. Dec 20, Vagabond of Letters rated it really liked it.
Our two towns were about fifty miles apart, and there had been no communication between us for a month. If, on the contrary, the figures actually fall within the limits of chance expectation, they do not support the astrological claim, they merely imitate accidentally the ideal answer to astrological expectation.
Scientists were much more “mystical” back then.
