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.

The Roots of Coincidence. Death and culture Parapsychology Scientific literacy. This deeper order led to the insights that a person was both embedded in a universal wholeness and that the realisation of this was more than just an intellectual exercise, but also had elements of a spiritual awakening.

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

Show 25 25 50 All. Jung — The Tavistock Lectures C. Following the advice of his father he asked the psychologist Carl Gustav Jung for help. Active imagination Enantiodromia Extraversion and introversion Individuation Participation mystique.

Particularly the last one of these criteria makes clear that synchronistic phenomena are psycho-physical phenomena, and that they are intractable by any science dealing with psyche or matter alone.

An Acausal Connecting Principle. The two men collaborated on the synchronicity concept for several years before publishing anything on the topic. But the rational one-sidedness of the young Pauli received a strong blow in his early thirties, a crisis that he later described as his big neurosis.

Concept, first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, which holds that events are “meaningful coincidences”. The answer to this is that acausal events may be expected most readily where, on closer reflection, a causal connection appears to be inconceivable.

The articles they published together in the volume The Interpretation of Nature and the Psyche Naturerklarung und Psyche — Jung and Pauli illustrate both their agreement and their differences pragmatically.

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

It left her feeling ” energised and strange”, a flow that kept bubbling up until she channelled it, producing the short story. Heisenberg, Physics and Beyond. While many universities and colleges have only recently begun moving toward multi-and interdisciplinary programs and offerings, transdisciplinarity, a concept that first appeared on the academic scene in the early s, has become an important trend in some circles. They would even jest as to whether Pauli had been nearby when apparatus didn’t work, reporting many instances when it turned out he was.

Mind, Matter and Quantum Mechanics. Synchronistic events are erratic, sporadic and arbitrary because they are dependent on an archetypal situation enabled in the observer. Known as quantum non-locality or entanglement synchrohicity, the proponents of this view argue palui this points to a unified field that precedes physical reality.

The emergence of the synchronistic paradigm was a significant move away from Cartesian dualism pzuli an underlying philosophy of double-aspect theory.

Carl Jung, part 6: Synchronicity

While exploring the phenomena of synchronicity, Carl Gustav Jung became acquainted with the quantum physicist Wolfgang Pauli and eventually began a collaboration with him.

It is a type of cognitive bias and represents an error of inductive inferenceor is a form of selection bias toward confirmation of the hypothesis under study, or disconfirmation of an alternative hypothesis. The sense is not just of a problem solved, but of reality revealed.

As the phenomenal world is an aggregate of the processes of atomic magnitude, it is naturally of the greatest importance to find out whether, and if so how, the photons shall we say enable us to gain a definite knowledge of the reality underlying the meditative energy processes. 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.


Pauli, on the other hand, became increasingly sensitive to the philosophical aspects concerning the unconscious. And unlike most psychologists, Jung seriously looked for an objective basis that modern physics might provide for his model of the psyche. Quoted in Henry p. Synchronicity was and continues to be a prime target for criticism of Jung that for decades bordered on outright dismissal by many in the scientific and academic communities.

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.

So, lab tests will inevitably miss what they seek to verify. The psychology of the unconscious and modern quantum physics introduced independently new concepts in a remarkable and peculiarly coincident manner. She couldn’t stop thinking about the coincidence. It occurred about nine one morning, when she was walking her dog.

In his book Synchronicity Jung tells the following story as an example of a synchronistic event:. Notes on the Seminar Given on by C. That was odd enough, so early in the day. Jung — Lettera a Pauli del 4 maggio junb in: Physicists with a psychological or spiritual inclination, like David Peat and Victor Mansfield, 38 have taken note of synchronicity and written of its validity as an experimental conceptual frame for exploring the connection between quantum and classical physics.

Lascia synchronucity commento Annulla risposta. Indeed, Jung’s writings in this area form an excellent general introduction to the whole field of the paranormal.
