With fascinating historical anecdotes and incisive scientific analysis, this important work combines ancient thought with modern theory to reveal a new way of viewing our universe that can expand our awareness, our lives, and may well point the way to a new science for the twenty-first century.
Published 1992 by Goldmann (first published May 1st 1987)

1991. I have a crush on Pauline Caluya, but I am restrained from pursuing her. She is a commie and runs with a real different crowd. I fear my feelings, if reciprocated, would result in a failed relationship. One night, I dream of both Pauline and I in a weight room along with a tiger—as tigers so often are… in gyms. Also, as is well known and as tigers are prone to do in such places, that being squats, so was this tiger doing. Several thick-necked caucasoidal men were loudly testayellerroning a ...more
Discusses the potential union of matter and mind, both of them being simultaneously reflecting reality in synchronicities. Gave some rather detailed examples but overall a simple description of some of quantum physics.

I thought this was a well-written book, it has 8 chapters, each one makes its case clearly, with lots of interesting references, including the work of Jung, Pauli, Prigogine, Einstein, Bohm, Sheldrake, Heisenberg, Hume, Koestler, Freud, Casimir. It touches on interesting questions and suggests many interesting ideas, I found the book throught-provoking and well worth the read.

Synchronicity by F. David Peat is an attempt to explain the following:

I was just thinking about you, hadn’t seen you in years, and suddenly there you were.

I had a dream you weren’t well, and now I find you have cancer.

I woke up feeling lucky, don’t know why. Went to the racetrack and picked two winners.

What is going on here? Peat suggests that there are two orders in the universe: the explicit, which is what we see, and the implicit, which underpins and connects what we see to realities distant
Craig Williams
I found this book at work, and due to the condition of it, it was trash can bound, so I snatched it up. I have always had an interest in synchronicity, and thought, "wouldn't be an interesting synchronicity that I found this this and it changed my life?" Well, the jury is still out on the life changing part...

This book was a doozy to get through. There were many moments when I considered quitting, but being that I had quit one difficult book to read this one, I felt too guilty to give up, so I

This is a very interesting publication dealing with the matter of possible interconnections between matter and mind. It is highly objective and scientific as much as it can be while dealing with this type of speculations. It presents the theme through the modern scientific physics theories, mixes it with Jung's transcendentalism and is not afraid to schetch it's own bold conclusions. One of the best books on the subjects of interconnection of subjective and objective reality.

This book is about synchronicity. Three chapters are about Sigmund Freud (pp. 27--32), Carl Jung (pp. 33--47), and Wolfgang Pauli (pp. 48--63). The author is a former theoretical physicist, and Wolfgang Pauli was a theoretical physicist, so many other physicists are mentioned in the book, for example Werner Heisenberg (pp. 48--50), Isaac Newton (pp. 64--66, 78--79), Michael Faraday (p. 66), James Maxwell (p. 66), and David Bohm (pp. 71--73, 126, 132).

I found the collaboration between Carl Jung a

This may be one of the most memorable books I've read in 2014. A quantum physicist takes us on a dazzling road of interdisciplinary thinking where he explores the depths of Jungian thought, shamanic traditions and physical theories, all in one single stroke, without trivialising any of them. In his quest he comes to many of the conclusions McGilchrist would write in his book (The Master and his Emissary), but from an entirely different perspective.

Sinchronicities are a curious phenomena that is
Sep 17, 2015 Leonardo marked it as not-yet  ·  review of another edition
Una de las ideas favoritas, con cara de Jano, que movilizan los espiritualistas de la Nueva Era es la noción de sincronicidad derivada de la física cuántica: la precisa noción cuántica de sincronicidad (dos partículas separadas están interconectadas de tal forma que el giro de una de ellas afecta al giro de la otra en menos tiempo del que tarda la luz en recorrer la distancia que las separa) se interpreta como una manifestación material de una dimensión «espiritual» que vincula los acontecimient ...more

Un libro que realmente establece un puente entre la mente y la materia. A través de sus páginas se advierte la sensación de “sincronicidad” donde la coincidencia significativa se establece a partir de patrones relacionados de forma extrañamente elocuente. El autor nos enfrenta a las frecuentes preguntas que todos nos hemos hecho en un momento de nuestra vida. ¿Cuál es la naturaleza del universo y cuál es nuestra posición en él? ¿Qué significa el universo? ¿Cuál es su propósito? ¿Quiénes somos y ...more

Coincidences? Not always. The trick is to find the meaning. A synchronicity is something that happens that appears to be a coincidence: you are thinking of calling a friend, the phone rings, and it's that friend; You hear a word or concept repeated in several contexts over the course of a day; you notice that the 5 cars ahead of you are all white. We all experience them, but few understand them. Great read.

Recommends it for: paranormal science readers
I feel that maybe I shouldn't like this book so much as a student of science. I will say that it doesn't put much forth in the way of scientific evidence for the paranormal. The book was especially entertaining and had a creative approach towards explaining the paranormal while referencing mythology to date the paranormal experience.

This book tries to marry ideas of quantum physics, psychology, and abstract thinking into one singular thought. The book is theoretical and was tough at times(a little over my head) but the main message was loud and clear, synchronicity by definition is a meaningful coincidence, and can science be behind this?
Nov 17, 2008 Brooke rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Fascinating book explains how the macro world must work in light of the reality of quantum mechanics. Also looks at differences between Eastern and Western paradigms and how both are required to get a full understanding of the universe.

I'd really like to re-read this because it's been a few years, but I think it helped shape the way I view the world.
James M. Madsen, M.D.
This is a very readable introduction to synchronicity even though it doesn't convince me that the concept is scientifically valid.

I recommend reading this book simultaneously with _Synchronicity: Science, Myth, and the Trickster_ by Allan Combs and Mark Holland. Read my review of both books there.

Explores the physics and psychology of synchronicity and reality in an original way. Completely changed the way I view reality.

Heavy on the science side of the synchronicity problem. Definitely the deep end of the pool.

I wanted to pass it on to a colleague, but my toddler spawn destroyed it before I could.

Oh, well. Guess this book wasn't meant for the Intelligence Community.
