Feb 29, John rated it really liked it. 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. davix
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 Several thick-necked caucasoidal men were loudly testayellerroning at the tiger to squeeze out a few more repetitions—lest its entire feline masculinity and worthiness to eat meat be called into question.
Pauline and I look at each other perplexed. I awake the next day interpreting the tiger as a symbol of my restrained passion for Pauline, and I head off to class We are in college at this point. Coincidentally, I run into Pauline the next day which I thought odd, because at this time, we would only see each other maybe times per year. As if asking the question would somehow change the rather inexplicable course on which I or we appear to be.
The monkey slips on one of its forward skateboard pushes and begins to fall. This jostles me awake. It also awakens Amber who asks me what happened. What the hell is going on with these few and far between dreams of animals and women I like?!!?!?! Are messages being sent out across the ether? Are they always being sent and only at times reaching consciousness? What does any of this mean, if anything?
Synchronicity: The Bridge Between Matter and Mind
Such synchronicities are the subject of F. It is very much conjecture. Nevertheless, a fascinating read bolstered by references to eminent brains that have tarried on this fascinating topic such as Carl Jung, Werner Heisenberg and Charles Dickens. It delved into topics such as the ultimate blurriness between mind and matter and wider orders of time. Check it out and you will be treated to definitions of time, meaning, considering God anew and be reminded of or shown how rational thought surfaced out of the void.
Or you can watch Glee. 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.
Apr 14, Bridgett rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. This book is about synchronicity. Three chapters are about Sigmund Freud pp. 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.
I found the collaboration between Carl Jung a This book is about synchronicity. I found the collaboration between Carl Jung and Wolfgang Pauli fascinating.
Pauli learned much from Jung, but Pauli also ” felt that … Jung was inflating the psyche and giving it an overbalanced importance as opposed to matter ” p. It seems as if ” Jung was never able to fully integrate synxhronicity insights that Pauli was presenting to him ” p.
There are many references to others as well in the book. I think the greatest benefit of the book is that it provides a background and an overview of the concept of synchronicity. It’s not until the last chapter, ” Seeking the Davvid ” pp. In conclusion, the book introduces a synchronistic dimension in which” mind and matter are not … separate … but unfold from a universe of infinite subtlety ” p. The book is well worth reading, but I would have liked dvid David Peat had explored the idea of a source further.
It’s indeed an idea which is related to ” the question of the origin of life and the universe ” and which has ” occupied thinkers down through the ages ” p. Mar 04, Robert rated it really liked it. David Peat is an attempt to explain the following: Went to the racetrack and picked two winners. What dynchronicity going on here? Peat suggests that there are two orders in the universe: This is one of those provocative books that explores our indifference to why things are syhchronicity they are It ends with an interesting image: Dec 16, Dacid rated it it was amazing Shelves: This may be one of the most memorable books I’ve read in 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 Synchroniciry would write in davod book The Master and his Emissarybut from an entirely different perspective.
Sinchronicities are a curious phenomena that is This may be one of the most memorable books I’ve read in Sinchronicities are a curious phenomena that davie usually dismissed as selection bias or pure chance.
Yet we have all experienced it at one point of our lives and were often struck by them. I think they deserve to be taken seriously and this book is the best starting point for such discussion. Strongly recommended for anyone who is beginning to doubt that the mechanical scheme of universe might not be the entire truth about it or who is beginning to sense that our daily consciousness is only a tip of the iceberg of what our minds are capable of.
Synchronicity: The Bridge Between Matter and Mind by F. David Peat
Jun 22, Craig Williams rated it it was ok. 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?
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 I found this book at work, and due to the condition of it, davod was trash can bound, so I snatched it up.
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 plodded on. It was interesting at first, when it talks about, well, synchronicity, and Carl Jung’s study of the subject. Then the book’s thesis gets hopelessly mired in physics talk, and I my brain got hopelessly mired in confusion. What kept me going, though, besides not wanting to feel stupid, is that the subject is just so interesting, and I’m sure if I were qualified to understand Peat’s position better, I would better appreciate what he has to say in this book.
As it stands, all I got from this book was: View all 3 comments. Dec 16, Genndy rated it really liked it. 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. 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.
Jul 30, Dabid Adducci rated it it was amazing. Sep 11, Jeremiah Oakes rated it it was amazing. But, I have always had an interest in synchronicity. Synchronicity, the meaningful coincidence. Sep 17, Leonardo marked it as not-yet. Apr 28, Lilia Morales y Mori rated it really liked it.
Un libro que realmente establece un puente entre la mente y la materia.
