Synchronicity: The Strangest of Coincidences. However, there are many types of
coincidences people have never heard. Above all, from something as small as seeing an old friend in an unexpected place, to the assassination of Franz Ferdinand that started World War One. Individuals across the globe may experience not just one but several throughout a lifetime.
For those who aren’t too versed in History, Franz Ferdinand was an Archduke (nobleman) in the Austro-Hungarian empire which was one of the world powers at the time.
Franz Ferdinand Trip to Bosnia
Franz Ferdinand one morning, decided to take an open roof car ride in Bosnia an annexed territory. In spite of this, a small branch of rebels heard about Franz Ferdinand trip. They went and immediately reported back to a group of a larger group of peasant rebels. Consequently, of them hearing this, they all gathered and planed on the attack on Franz Ferdinand. The rebels finally had the chance to fulfill their plan their hit certainly. They placed men all along the route with various bombs and guns. After the first bomb missed and alerted Ferdinand’s escorts, their path was averted only to pass by a cafe where one of the assassins was sitting. The killer took his chance and ran out of the cafe to kill Ferdinand. With the result of political uproar. Afterward following this strange coincidence sparked World War One.
Especially strange coincidences were marked “Synchronicities” by psychologist Carl Jung after experiencing one of these mind-bending events for himself. During a psychotherapy session, a woman started to describe a dream. She stated that a piece of specific jewelry gave to her. The jewelry happened to be a golden scarab (beetle), and she asked Jung what it meant. Having her before, Jung knew this lady was an extreme rationalist and realist. However, trying to find a way to show her that her perception of reality isn’t clear. Immediately the woman finished the explanation of her dream.
Consequently, they were both drawn away from the conversation when they heard a tapping at the window. Upon opening the window, a specific species of the scarab beetle (that’s coloring makes it look like a gold scarab) flew into the room. Therefore, Jung handed it to the lady and said: “Here’s your scarab.” The experience put both Jung and his patient in a state of extreme disbelief. However, Jung said he never saw anything like it, and that he would never see anything like it ever again. Could the phenomena of synchronicities be one of the channels through which humans can get in touch with the untouchable?
Philip K. Dick In touch with the untouchable
Philip K. Dick happens to be one of the most renowned science fiction writers. Noteworthy tells of how he got in touch with the untouchable in his essay “How to Build a Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later.” Dick recounts, in his article a previous book he wrote in 1970 called “Flow my Tears. On the contrary the Policeman Said”, where a nineteen-year-old girl named Kathy is secretly part of a criminal underground all while having an affair with the chief of police.
The same year on Christmas Day, Dick ends up meeting a nineteen-year-old girl named Kathy. Who had a boyfriend named Jack (same as the novel), and Dick finds out that she’s a drug dealer. Even more strange, Dick also discovered that Kathy had been having an affair with the chief of police. Dick happened to find out as it came out when she refused to enter a restaurant, he was sitting in; for this reason, having to explain why.
The reason for the priest angrily proclaimed.
Within a few years later, Dick was talking to this priest. Specifically about a scene from the same book where a guy named Jason picked up a black man who needed gas and drove him to the gas station to help out. For instance, it leads to the more detail that Dick went into about the scene in the book. The more frustrated the priest seemed to get.
Until after the story where the priest angrily proclaimed it was the same story as the “Book of Acts” in the old testament. It was crazy enough that Dick never read the Book of Acts before writing the story. Things got even crazier when Dick spotted a suspicious looking man across from his apartment — placing him in the distance at night while he was retrieving his mail. Dick reluctantly approached the man feeling drawn towards the interaction; the man said he needed gas, so Dick drove him to the gas station.
Dick was left utterly speechless after realizing that the gas station. In particular, the black man he was helping, and even the conversation they had directly mirrored the scene in Dick’s book and the Book of Acts verbatim. Dick obsessed over this paradigm-shifting experience for years and also ended up developing the theory that everyone is living in the Book of Acts. In like manner, made to think the reality is real through an illusion. In conclusion, it’s instilled in them by a demon. Though his theory is debatable, this synchronicity completely changed Dick’s life.
With this in mind, try to recognize the phenomena as they happen. Meanwhile, other people write off the wonders of synchronicity. For instance, People even go as far as to preach about the tendency of the human brain to draw connections between unconnected things. It seems realistic that small everyday coincidences could be a mere byproduct of the human mind, consequently by the brain making faulty connections. Bu, when an experience arises that completely shatters a person’s grasp on reality, is it so easy to draw the same conclusion?
When people experience extreme synchronicities, they always describe the same sort of feelings. Many have associated with mystical experiences. Afterward, the air in the room becomes thick. Subsequently, there’s the sense of an outside presence. Beyond this, they almost feel as if reality isn’t real. Could the power of synchronicity be blurring the lines between the material and spiritual worlds? Just as The Moon is a Hologram ” — Could you justify that?”
There are many fascinating facts on the moon being a hologram that lines up with how synchronicities.
