The other half is the revealing of the archetypal basis of the terms actually applied in modern physics. Whereas Einstein unified space and time, commonly thought of as separate factors, into the composite of space-time, Sting thought a similar meta-concept was needed to articulate the essential unity of causality and synchronicity, the two connective principles.

This correspondence is simply there like any other agreeable or annoying accident, and it seems doubtful to me whether it can be proved scientifically to be anything more than that.


Synchronicity was and continues to be a prime target for criticism of Jung that for decades bordered on outright dismissal by many in the scientific and academic communities. The highest value is found in the aforementioned moon-sun conjunction, and the two next-highest synchronicuty 1. Jung wrote, “Professor Einstein was my guest on several occasions at dinner.

Terrified, he wanted to save the four thousand inhabitants. La sincronicidad se compone de dos factores: The expected outcomes were also underestimated, so that subjects reported as performing ‘above chance’ were in fact quite average. The experiment consists, in principle, in an experimenter turning up, one after another, a series of numbered cards bearing simple geometrical patterns. Ultimately, the book argues for ideas that are well worth consideration and offers a very interesting angle on common human experiences.

Yet that would not decrease how remarkable they were. These are as a rule complexes whose ultimate basis is the archetype, the “instinctual pattern.

The moon aspects came up fourteen times with a frequency of Figures 2 and 3 give a graphic representation of the frequencies shown respectively in columns 2 and 5 of Table I from the point of view of the dispersion of aspects.

That there are certain essential psychic conditions for synchronistic phenomena we have already seen from the ESP experiments, although the latter are in the nature of the case restricted to the fact of coincidence and only stress its psychic background without illuminating it any further. The psychic state was characterized as a situation in which insight and decision come up against the insurmountable barrier of an unconscious opposed to the will.

He then tried to excuse his lack of evidence by the so-called ‘Decline Effect’which caarl just another misunderstanding of how statistics operate. In Synchronicity Jung attempts to outline a principle of reality that operates beyond the natural laws of physics. They are the basis for surprises and superstition, and decision making.

Twenty of these were then drawn by lot by the subject. I was at this time engaged on a study of the fish symbol in history. I was amazed to see how many people have had experiences of this kind and how carefully the secret was guarded. The philosophical principle that underlies our conception of natural law is causality.
