«Il principio filosofico che sta alla base della nostra concezione della regolarità delle leggi di natura è la causalità. Se il rapporto tra causa ed effetto dimostra di aver solo validità statistica e soltanto una verità relativa (...) ciò significa che il legame tra eventi è in certe circostanze di natura diversa da quella causale ed esige un diverso principio interpretativo».
«A differenza della causalità, la sincronicità si dimostra un fenomeno connesso principalmente con processi che si svolgono nell'inconscio. Alla psiche inconscia spazio e tempo sembrano relativi, ossia la conoscenza si trova in un continuum spaziotemporale in cui lo spazio non è più spazio e il tempo non è più tempo. Se quindi l'inconscio sviluppa e mantiene un certo potenziale alla coscienza, nasce la possibilità di percepire e "conoscere" eventi paralleli».

The central theory of 'synchronicity' relies on an unfortunate combination of flawed research and misapplied statistics. Jung hems and haws but is never able to demonstrate that any acausal connection between events exists. The first problem is his reliance on research by Joseph Rhine , who coined the Leggi tutto
Part 1 is engaging but a little dull. Part 2, which is the so-called simple astrological experiment Jung conducted to test his theory, is all statistical math and thus incomprehensible to me. But the Parts 3 and 4 addressing similarities between Synchronicity and certain aspects of the world as expl Leggi tutto
Firstly, I have never written such a long review before, so brace yourself. Secondly, this book is nothing short of a fascinating read, despite its flaws. It is important to mention that Jung was apparently fascinated by Einstein's theory of relativity and the idea that time and space are relative a Leggi tutto
Jung had noted in his life a tendency for certain meaningful coincidences to cluster together. He gives an account of an experience regarding fish (meaningful as an archetypal symbol), where he either saw an actual fish, is told about a fish, sees a drawing of a fish, etc, all within a short space o Leggi tutto
I have always been fascinated by Carl Jung and the concept of synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence. This was the first book I had ever read by him though I had read several books about him. I must say that thought the famous psychiatrist and writer of the soul and this topic are truly compelling Leggi tutto
Jung's concept of synchronicity (i.e. acausal nonlocal meaningful coincidence) is presented with a beautiful calm and eloquence. My reading of the book was motivated by a recent strikingly synchronistic experience of my own. And it seems to me that my actual reading of the book is somehow, in turn,
MINDBLOWN! In the course of the last 9 months I've become very familiar with the concept of Synchronicity from my own experience. Slowly I began noticing it, then there was a phase when I thought it was all just a false impression, then it became too obvious to deny it and after the first quirky pha Leggi tutto
This work by Jung is a fascinating look at the subjective experience of being a human mind in a physical universe. He begins the book with the following statements: 1) Natural laws are statistical truths, which means that they are completely valid only when we are dealing with macrophysical quantitie Leggi tutto
Clearly not the strongest work by Jung but maybe one of the bravest ideas in the 20-th century.
