Reply To: On Synchronicity and Meaning


I answer to James too in this reply.

But Marriane I didn’t contradict Jung’s quotes. I offer an alternative to your interpretation of his theory.

All the quotes you and James provided, I see nothing that points to a metaphysical nature of Synchronicity with the exception “The synchronicity phenomena point, it seems to me, in this direction, for they show that the nonpsychic can behave like the psychic, and vice versa, without there being any causal connection between them.” and even then is hard to understand Jung intentions.

From describing “mundane” Synchronicity in dreams which makes sense to omens, tai chi and clocks that stop to work when people die. It is not the same thing and it is a pretty big leap of faith. How many people die in the world every day? Around 150k, we would have some serious electrical problems, I think, if that was the case.

It is very necessary to have a metaphysical sense of things, how could we not? But how much is too much that is another matter.

Anyway, I am not up to the task of trying to find evidence and quotes and explaining Jung and Campbell’s intentions and I am not sure if I could even If I wanted to so I’ll just say this little and stop.

Take care, have fun. Adios.
