Synchronicity is essentially a shiny new word for what we would have earlier called magic.
You know, magic are these practices that posit some profound connection between an internal state of mind and physical reality, and that’s exactly what a synchronicity is. And I think that these things continue to happen in the modern world because that’s what reality is. It’s not this dead chuck of matter, it’s this living being that is always communicating to itself and we’re part of that self that it’s communicating to. I think these are just modern ways of talking about very old human experiences.
I pulled that quote from a highly recommended audio interview with Jeff Kripal, author of Mutants and Mystics.
