Recommended to Michael by: Uncle Setnakt
I recommend reading this book simultaneously with _Synchronicity: The Bridge Between Matter and Mind_ by F. David Peat. These books cover much of the same ground from slightly different perspectives. Peat is a trained physicist, who seems to have gone over to pushing a spiritual agenda, based on the apparent unity of cosmic substance. Combs is a Psychologist, whose website claims he is a professor of "transformative studies" in California, while Holland is an English prof (maybe just there to cl ...more

If you are sick and tired of Freud like I am, then you should embrace a new psychoanalytical perspective. This book is based on Jung's idea of "synchronicity," or the idea that things happen for not only a reason, but are revealed through particular symbols that the human brain coordinates. Once you read this book, you'll start to notice all of the synchronic moments in your life-- it's really fascinating!!
This book went over theories such as the holographic universe and other quantum physics ideas that align with synchronicity (meaningful coincidences). The trickster archetype was brought in as relating to synchronicity, unpredictability, and the union of opposites.

Starting this book is like wrapping myself up in a warm blanket. I've forgotten how much I used to revel in the inter-connectedness of things. And who doesn't love a good Trickster myth?
The science is thin, but the theory is seductive. If you are looking for where Physics meets your belief system, this is a good place to start.
بيتكلم عن ظاهرة التزامن من وجة نظر الفيزياء الكميه والنسبيه (اللي مش فاهمه فيهم حاجه) بالإضافه للناحيه النفسيه (وهو جزء صغير) والتزامن في الأساطير بالذات الإغريقيه

الخلاصة ماقدرتش أفهم أجزاء كتير..واللي فهمته معظمه مش مُقنع
Fascinating book. To me it could've been more in-depth in places. It was almost too eclectic, throwing in one idea here, another supporting detail there. But it presents some interesting ideas.
التزامن؛ القوة التي تفرض ذاتها في أشد الحوادث عشوائية. كانت تحصل لي مواقف تزامنية لا رابط بينها، وهذا الكتاب يتكلم عن التزامن وأسبابه ونظرياته المطروحة حتى الآن

He considers his most significant work to be the development of a developmental/evolutionary model of the mind using concepts from systems science. Much of this was accomplished in collaboration with his friend and colleague Stanley Krippner. He is most widely known, however, for his collaboration with Ken Wilber o ...more

“ثمة ظاهره, هي أشد غموضاً من التخاطر والمعرفة المسبقه, قد حيرت الإنسان منذ فجر الأساطير, إنها ذلك الإلتقاء الذي يبدو عارضاً في الظاهر بين اثنتين من السلاسل لا تربط السببيه بينهما, في حادث متوافق هو أبعد ما يكون عن الاحتمال ومحمل بالدلاله في الوقت ذاته
