Prussian blue skies at dusk, sinking into a burnt sienna horizon.
Dipping deeper and deeper into the seemingly unknowable world (if you can call it that!) of Quantum Physics and Quantum Mechanics. Nothing is as it seems, a notion which is at once unsettling and also outrageously thrilling.
An acquaintance stopped by work today, and when this science subject-of-the-day was casually mentioned, the friend said, "Oh, I'm currently reading The Dancing Wu Li Masters ."
I'm reading this, and so is Melinda.
Evidence, indeed, that other forces are at work.
From a Wikipedia article on Synchronicity:
Even at Jung's presentation of his work on synchronicity in 1951 at an Eranos lecture, his ideas on synchronicity were evolving. Following discussions with both Albert Einstein and Wolfgang Pauli, Jung believed that there were parallels between synchronicity and aspects of relativity theory and quantum mechanics.
Jung was transfixed by the idea that life was not a series of random
events but rather an expression of a deeper order, which he and Pauli
referred to as Unus mundus.
This deeper order led to the insights that a person was both embedded
in an orderly framework and was the focus of that orderly framework and
that the realisation of this was more than just an intellectual
exercise, but also having elements of a spiritual awakening. From the
religious perspective, synchronicity shares similar characteristics of
an "intervention of grace". Jung
also believed that in a person's life, synchronicity served a role
similar to that of dreams, with the purpose of shifting a person's
egocentric conscious thinking to greater wholeness.
And finally, something (perhaps) to make you laugh:
Is that a cookie falling from your mouth? Or is it just a Fig Newton of my imagination?
