Synchronicity

Synchronicity
Synchronicity is the occurrence of two or more events that appear to be meaningfully related but not causally related. Synchronicity holds that such events are "meaningful coincidences". The concept of synchronicity was first defined by Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist, in the 1920s.[1] During his career, Jung furnished several slightly different definitions of it.[2] Jung variously defined synchronicity as an "acausal connecting (togetherness) principle," "meaningful coincidence," and "acausal parallelism." He introduced the concept as early as the 1920s but gave a full statement of it only in 1951 in an Eranos lecture.[3] In 1952, he published a paper "Synchronizität als ein Prinzip akausaler Zusammenhänge" (Synchronicity – An Acausal Connecting Principle)[4] in a volume which also contained a related study by the physicist and Nobel laureate Wolfgang Pauli.[5] In his book Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle, Jung wrote:[6] Description[edit] Examples[edit] Criticisms[edit]

Sports rage by Robert Montenegro Quick. Take a guess as to which part of the year sees the biggest spike in domestic violence incidents in the United States. If you guessed the Super Bowl, you are, sadly, correct. 18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently This list has been expanded into the new book, “Wired to Create: Unravelling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind,” by Carolyn Gregoire and Scott Barry Kaufman. Creativity works in mysterious and often paradoxical ways. Creative thinking is a stable, defining characteristic in some personalities, but it may also change based on situation and context. Inspiration and ideas often arise seemingly out of nowhere and then fail to show up when we most need them, and creative thinking requires complex cognition yet is completely distinct from the thinking process.

Red Book (Jung) The Red Book, also known as Liber Novus (Latin for New Book), is a 205-page manuscript written and illustrated by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung between approximately 1914 and 1930, prepared for publication by The Philemon Foundation and published by W.

Parallel worlds exist and interact with our world, say physicists Quantum mechanics, though firmly tested, is so weird and anti-intuitive that famed physicist Richard Feynman once remarked, “I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics.” Attempts to explain some of the bizarre consequences of quantum theory have led to some mind-bending ideas, such as the Copenhagen interpretation and the many-worlds interpretation. Now there’s a new theory on the block, called the “many interacting worlds” hypothesis (MIW), and the idea is just as profound as it sounds. The theory suggests not only that parallel worlds exist, but that they interact with our world on the quantum level and are thus detectable. Though still speculative, the theory may help to finally explain some of the bizarre consequences inherent in quantum mechanics, reports RT.com.

Ebola Was Not the Only Factor That Killed Duncan Article by WN.com Correspondent Dallas Darling The family of the first person to die of Ebola in the U.S. has a right to be upset. Especially since Ebola was just one of several factors which caused his death. Along with "unfair" treatment, Thomas Duncan was killed by nativism, classism, racism, and corporatism. Although three U.S. health workers contracted Ebola and were cured through experimental drugs and vaccines, what made Duncan receive a substandard treatment was his foreign citizenship, or being from Liberia. Bias against foreigners has always been a persistent theme in American history-an ironic reality, given the popular image of the United States as a haven for the world's poor and oppressed.

List of unusual deaths This is a list of unusual deaths. This list includes unique or extremely rare circumstances of death recorded throughout history, noted as being unusual by multiple sources.
