The name “Ericipaeus” was completely unknown to her, which is not surprising as she had no knowledge of the classics. We are, however, driven to some such assumption if we are not to regress to a magical causality and ascribe to the psyche a power that far exceeds its empirical range of action. The so- called “scientific view of the world” based on this can hardly be anything more than a psychologically biased partial view which misses out all those by no means unimportant aspects that cannot be grasped statistically.

They have never been entirely robbed of their numinous aura. Garrett, achieved bad results in the Rhine experiments because, as she herself admits, she was unable to sum up any feeling for the “soulless” test-cards. In these circumstances the time factor seems to have been eliminated by a psychic function or psychic condition which is also capable acausao abolishing the csrl factor. There the coincidence was represented only by the death and the gathering of the birds.

This melancholy fact will present us with the greatest difficulties as soon as we set about collecting empirical material that would throw a little light on this dark subject, for we shall be quite certain to find it where all the authorities have assured us that nothing is to be found. We’ve all had various experiences that seemed almost impossible chance connections.

His unconscious knowledge had made the same mistake in reading as himself. It is a difficult and cumbersome read and I do not recommend it unless you are someone in the field of psychology or a scientist. There is therefore good reason to doubt whether it is a question of transmission at all.


How often have we not seen the truth condemned! My colleague, of course, had a thorough knowledge of astrological marriage aspects, and she was also acquainted with the horoscopes of the people in question. In the intuitive or “mantic” experiment-with-the-whole, on the other hand, there is no need of any question which imposes acausla and restricts the wholeness of the natural process.

I could not understand it as the language was too connevting and hard to follow. You learn someone close to y Back in the s when I was in High School there was a band called the Police. After the first series of experiments the spatial distance between the experimenter and the subject was increased, in one case to miles.

Finding the meaning of the lyrics impenetrable, he spent the final years of his life rifling franticly through ancient manuscripts looking for clues. To mention but one example out of many, I noted the following on April 1, Five cards are marked with a star, five with a square, five with a circle, five with wavy lines, and five with a cross. To me, the notions of gods, angels, psychic powers, magic, astrology, and all the rest do not make the world a more remarkable place, because they are all of man, not of the world.

In this way artificial pairs were obtained. Jung proposed and developed the concepts of extraversion and introversion; archetypes, and the collective unconscious.

Up to the present no critical argument that cannot be refuted has been brought against these experiments.

The months vary according to location. The meaningful coincidence we are looking for is aynchronicity apparent in astrology, since the astronomical data are said by astrologers to correspond to individual traits of character; from the remotest times the various planets, houses, zodiacal signs, and aspects have all had meanings that serve as a basis for a character study or for an interpretation of a given situation.

Then, when he retested them, they averaged out. My aim in including the conjunction and opposition of Mars and Venus was therefore to compare them with the other conjunctions and oppositions. Kammerer holds that xarl “runs ” 4 or successions of chance events are not subject to the operation of a common causeconneting i. When Galileo discovered the moons of Jupiter with his telescope he immediately came into head-on collision with the prejudices of his learned contemporaries.


Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle

acausaal They are evidently not synchronous but are synchronistic, since they are experienced as psychic images in the present, as though the objective event already existed. In this book Jung was attempting to show how synchronicity works with the psyche, to prove its existence. It did not yet exist at the time of the grandmother’s death.

Nevertheless, Pauli was convinced that science was unable to provide all of the answers. While reading, I had my own moment of synchronous coincidence, when Jung quoted Kepler’s notion of ‘Geometric Unity’ as an example of a philosophy of synchronicity–despite the fact that it turned out to be incorrect.

These represent meaningless coincidences but ones which we must prepare for. But the speed with which the new table arrangement had to be made left her no opportunity for reflection, so that the unconscious had a free hand in secretly arranging the “marriages. That is to say, although there is always a lunar conjunction and always a “classical” one of decisive significance, they are nevertheless different conjunctions, because each time the moon is associated with a different partner.

Liliane Frey-Rohn, for her help with the astrological material. 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. He referred to synchronicity again in his “Tavistock Lectures” in London, The first ant to come out of each of the three boxes is always the white one.
