“Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” ― Albert Einstein
Synchronicity opens up the question as to whether our minds are also related to a universal intuitive intelligence…could it be that our subconscious possess the same powers or is an extension of an intuitive universe ?… which would also help explain the feeling of Oneness…Albert Einstein refers to intuition as”sacred”.
Or is synchronicity just a coincidence? Who hasn’t had it happen in their life? You think of someone for the first time in years, and run into them a few hours later. An unusual phrase you’d never heard before jumps out at you three times in the same day. On a back street in a foreign country, you bump into a college roommate. A book falls off the shelf at the bookstore and it’s exactly what you need.
Is it only the law of averages playing itself out? Or is it, as Carl Jung believed, a glimpse into the underlying order of the universe? He coined the term synchronicity to describe what he called the “a causal connecting principle” that links mind and matter. He said this underlying connectedness manifests itself through meaningful coincidences that cannot be explained by cause and effect. Such synchronicities occur, he theorized, when a strong need arises in the psyche of an individual. He described three types that he had observed:
1) The coinciding of a thought or feeling with an outside event;
2) A dream, vision or premonition of something that then happens in the future;
3) A dream or vision that coincides with an event occurring at a distance.
Some scientists see a theoretical grounding for synchronicity in quantum physics, fractal geometry, and chaos theory. They are finding that the isolation and separation of objects from each other is more apparent than real; at deeper levels, everything — atoms, cells, molecules, plants, animals, people — participates in a sensitive, flowing web of information.
Physicists have shown, for example, that if two photons are separated, no matter by how far, a change in one creates a simultaneous change in the other.
“Synchronicity is choreographed by a great, pervasive intelligence that lies at the heart of nature, and is manifest in each of us through intuitive knowledge.”~Deepak Chopra
