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.… Read the rest

Synchro-missity

Carl Jung called meaningful coincidences and parapsychological occurrences by the term “synchronicity,” but noted that some things are merely attributable to “probability of chance.” Writing on Reality Sandwich, Nick Meador wonders: do we know how to tell the difference?

In recent times the term “synchronicity” has become one of the trendiest words in circles that self-identify as conscious or transformative. The Internet contributed to this, no doubt, by exposing so many of us to schools of thought like Jungian psychology (the origin of synchronicity) that had been partially or totally omitted from general education programs. However, common discussion and application of the term doesn’t take into consideration the fact that the Internet and connected technologies are constantly influencing our perception of supposed synchronicities. When we evaluate these phenomena more closely, it becomes unclear whether we’re identifying them correctly or interpreting them in a useful way.

The word “synchronicity” first appeared in the 1950s, when Carl Jung brought it forth in the development of archetypal psychology.

This Movie Was Filmed in the Fifth Dimension

The title to this was something that was communicated to me while I was ganj-i-tating during the witching hour last Sunday Morning, accompanied by a feeling of supreme recognition. The movie they’re referring to is our lives. Friend me for magick updates on Facebook, this is the sort of odd shit that happens. Are cute pug puppy pictures coming soon? Of course they are.

The other week I decided that so as to stay away from the net a bit like I normally do on the weekends, I’d condense my psychic updates to a weekend edition entitled The Weekend in Sorcery. First weekend was interesting. The second was fucking bananas- (edited it a bit to post here, so keep that in mind, but otherwise, read on true believers):

Weekend of January 8-10, 2013 (year of the witch):

This is a rich. Went to the OM show on Friday, which was super packed.… Read the rest
