Atom, Archetype, and the Invention of Synchronicity: How Iconic Psychiatrist Carl Jung and Nobel-Winning Physicist Wolfgang Pauli Bridged. Jung’s is on synchronicity – nothing unexpected there. But Pauli’s was a real eye opener. He wrote on Johannes Kepler and explored how his. Mark Vernon: With physicist Wolfgang Pauli, Jung explored the link between the disparate realities of matter and mind.

And Pauli guessed that right away: Parapsychology Death and culture Parapsychology Scientific literacy.

Beyond synchronicity: the worldview of Carl Gustav Jung and Wolfgang Pauli.

Notes on synchronicity The definition of synchronicity, as developed by Jung in agreement with the comments and the positions of Pauli, is the following: Confirmation bias is of interest in the teaching of critical thinkingas the skill is misused if rigorous critical scrutiny is applied only to evidence that challenges a preconceived idea, but not to evidence that supports it.

Following the advice of his father he asked the psychologist Carl Gustav Jung for help.

Many years later, inDeschamps was at a dinner and once again ordered plum pudding. Therefore it cannot be a question of cause and effect, but of a falling together in time, a kind of simultaneity.

After several fruitless attempts to sweeten her rationalism with a somewhat more human understanding, I had to confine myself to the hope that something unexpected and irrational would turn up, something that would burst the intellectual retort into which she had sealed herself.

Synchronicity: the encounter between the psychoanalyst Jung and the physicist Pauli

The difficulty lay in the fact that she always knew better about everything. Jung used the concept in arguing for the existence of the paranormal. It required the introduction of a fourth quantum number, a highly counterintuitive move as the new quantum number represents nothing that can be visualised. This is what Pauli wrote to Jung in synchrojicity The culmination of Jung’s lifelong engagement with the paranormal is his theory of synchronicity, the view that the structure of reality includes a principle of acausal connection which manifests itself most conspicuously in the form of meaningful coincidences.


Beyond synchronicity: the worldview of Carl Gustav Jung and Wolfgang Pauli.

Nevertheless, Jung found his dreams so important that he asked Pauli to continue recording and interpreting his dreams synhronicity to stay in contact with him. While exploring the phenomena of synchronicity, Carl Gustav Jung became acquainted with the quantum physicist Wolfgang Pauli and eventually began a collaboration with him.

They are big as experiences. Pauli considered the Jungian synchronicity and the ancient idea of teleological finalism in the general sense of a natural process oriented towards a higher end as particular instances of such acausal order that can not be set intentionally.

The principle of synchronicity assumes that the indestructible energy has a dual relationship with the space-time continuum: He never published his ideas as quickly as possible but preferred to communicate his thoughts in long letters to his friends and colleagues, trying out new ideas.

Some argue this shift was essential to bringing theoretical coherence to Jung’s earlier work.


Alluding to the statement of Einstein about an alleged incompleteness of quantum mechanics, Pauli concluded: Jung recovered, but Pauli subsequently became very ill and died in as a result of pancreatic cancer. And how effective exchange between each other disciplines of the two scientists has really taken place, is clear from two separate positions resulting from their publications: According to Jung and Pauli, the phenomenon of synchronicity brought physics and psychology closer, showing a deep connection between the various events of the world, not tied to a direct causal-mechanical action.

Events like this occur often enough to be more than meaningless coincidence, Jung and Pauli believed. Ten years later, the writer encountered plum pudding on the menu of a Paris restaurant and wanted to order some, but the waiter told him that the last dish had already been served to another customer, who turned out to be de Fontgibu.

Princeton University Press, In psychology and cognitive scienceconfirmation bias is a tendency to search for or interpret new information in a way that confirms one’s preconceptions, and avoids information and interpretations that contradict prior beliefs.

Concept, first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, which holds that events are “meaningful coincidences”. Difficult, flawed, prone to misrepresentation, this theory none the less remains one of the most suggestive attempts yet made to bring the paranormal within the bounds of intelligibility. It is synchrnicity that his very presence in the vicinity of the laboratory was sufficient to cause the breakdown of experimental equipment in most inexplicable ways. In this, he is far from unusual: Likewise, in psychology and sociology, the term apophenia is used for the mistaken detection of a pattern or meaning in random or meaningless data.
