Synchronicity & the Collective Dream

Carl Jung, the man who coined the term synchronicity and studied it extensively for decades, once said that “Synchronicity is no more baffling or mysterious than the discontinuities of physics.”

Sometimes it seems to me that the universe is like a giant organism or mind, and synchronicity is like a symptom of the cosmos tripping utter ballsack, having an orgasm, or a good belly laugh. Prodding itself along the path of greater self-awareness. There is a mode we can partially access that is more heavily tuned into the non-local level of things where everything is everywhere. Tapped in to a degree that we can barely imagine from our ordinary day-to-day state of consciousness. Often the leaks into consciousness are brushed off as mere coincidences.

I wonder what people would think if they could simultaneously see or be aware of all of our collective “coincidences” that have occurred in human life throughout our years, and then whether or not they’d still default to the explanation that it was mere coincidence… My guess, after documenting the phenomenon for years, is that the response would be pure astonishment, requiring heavy revision to the parameters of our reality-tunnels.

What do you disinfonauts think of synchronicity?

This documentary on it seems noteworthy.

    i get it all the time now, dunno what the hell I’m supposed to do with it. I had a friend a few years ago who said she thought everything was talking to her and i just thought she was going psychotic, being bipolar and all.

      the acausal connecting principle, as Charlie defined it
      is a fundamental component of life
      it isn’t to be “used”
      but it can amuse one to insight

      I treat it as notification to pay the fuck attention to what is going on around me, and inside of my life. Now days when it happens, I check the I Ching.
      I generally get an interesting result.

        the effects of randomness are often
        overlooked or misunderstood
        but once you tune in to it
        it’s hard to miss

        26. Ta Ch’u / The Taming Power of the Great
        above KêN
        KEEPING STILL, MOUNTAIN
        below CH’IEN
        THE CREATIVE, HEAVEN

        THE IMAGE Heaven within the mountain:
        The image of THE TAMING POWER OF THE GREAT.
        Thus the superior man acquaints himself with many sayings of antiquity And many deeds of the past, In order to strengthen his character thereby. Heaven within the mountain points to hidden treasures. In the words and deeds of the past there lies hidden a treasure that men may use to strengthen and elevate their own characters. The way to study the past is not to confine oneself to mere knowledge of history but, through application of this knowledge, to give actuality to the past.

          It’s cool that they made that available. I still prefer a book and coins.

          Lately it occurs to me, that there might not be anything that is random. We live in such a tightly woven fabric of interdependent cause and effect.

    the main ingrediants of life are
    water, sun, air, food and synchronicity

  • Earthstar

    Everything is synchronous, tho people generally lack enough awareness to realize this. We exist in a dream of interdependent origination and causation, individual and collective. All things, places, thoughts, actions and events are Karmas and completely intertwined, much like the quantum entanglement of the Universe. What we experience as synchronicity is our awakening awareness to this Truth.

      Well said.

  • HCE

    “Sometimes it seems to me that the universe is like a giant organism or mind, and synchronicity is like a symptom of the cosmos tripping utter ballsack, having an orgasm, or a good belly laugh”

    That’s undervaluing and over simplifying Synchronicity, in my estimation of things.
    Synchronicity has the feel of some level of communication. I get synchronicity when
    big changes are occurring, when I’m deeply focused on occult/spiritual matters, or consuming psychedelics regularly. Unfortunately that last one is no longer viable for me. But I have found consulting the I Ching can generate synchronicity as well.

    • Yūgen

      Any metaphor or words we use to describe it essentially undervalues and oversimplifies it :)
