Synchronicity Alert!
    #8091775 - 03/02/08 12:00 AM (13 years, 5 days ago)

What is a synchronicity? A synchronicity is a clue that you have left behind to remind yourself of something. To remind yourself of what? To remind yourself that it’s all an illusion. That you are one with everything. For instance, I stumbled upon a wonderful synchronicity just minutes ago. The other day, walking around at the college campus I attend, I heard someone’s conversation. One fellow asked the other, “Is Hambone going to be there?” To which the other fellow replied “Hell yea!” or something of that sort. I thought to myself in that moment, what an odd nickname for someone to have – Hambone. I had never heard it before, or at least I never noticed it if I had. I chuckled quietly to myself as I continued my walk across campus, picturing what kind of character one would have to have to earn the nickname Hambone.

I never thought anything of it, until a few days later, on a Saturday. On that Saturday I was looking through a certain internet philosophy forum which I retreat to occasionally when life loses its wondrous glowing luster in order to re-immerse myself in new ideas. I browse through a thread I chose at random, and come upon a video that I decide to view out of a curiosity that arose from wondering what kind of video could relate to this mostly disappointing thread. The video is an interview with the author of a book. I find it fascinating. While watching the video, the words of the author resonate so deeply within me that a chill runs up my spine and the hairs on my arms stand at end. I close my eyes briefly in order to experience the moment more fully. The video finishes shortly after, and I am compelled to order the book being discussed immediately (very rarely do I buy things spontaneously - with the exception of food). I finish ordering the book and another one I had told myself weeks before I would purchase when I had the chance.

I stop for a moment and think about a good friend who was a necessary component to the most profound philosophical and spiritual experience I have had thus far. The reason for this moment of contemplation and gratitude being that the same ideas the author of the book was referring to in the video – those of waking up to a higher level of consciousness, and having a waking experience of life much like the dreamer who awakes in a dream but continues to move about in it knowing what he sees is illusion - were the same type of ideas this friend of mine had introduced to me. I thought to myself: “you know – I’ve been thinking about this before but I really ought to write this friend and let him know that in a very substantial way he has been a guru to me, a guru that pointed me down the path leading to my own inner guru”. I resolved myself into doing so after I finish reading the thread.

I load the next page of the thread until I come upon the words “Hambone” and “The Big Professor”(<---symbol of college campus?) side by side in one of the posts. The author of the post is none other than the friend I was just thinking of! Now this is what I call a damned good synchronicity! Not your run of the mill synchronicity – oh no! Multifaceted and everything! That when compared to my previous synchronicity's would be like comparing a shooting star to a meteor shower. The irony hits me like a ton of bricks. I receive a vividly fresh infusion of mystical understanding. With eyes closed, subtle shapes race past my mind’s eye as my vision is sucked deeper into a swirling vortex. A wave of energy slithers up my spine into my skull giving me goosebumps second time that night. I feel rejuvenated. It was then that I felt I had left myself a hidden message – a synchronicity – to remind me that this external form we take in this reality is but an illusion.

syncronicity? Never heard of it before, but it sounds interesting. Sounds like a coincidence of some sort.


--------------------
The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to selfishness;
From selfishness to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.

What is a synchronicity?




It is the total misunderstanding of the brain as an association engine, the laws of probablity, the sheer number of facts and data we are exposed to.

This ignorance is turned into a mystical belief like happens all-too-often.

jung categorizes synchronicity into the following

1. the coincidence of a psychic state in the observer with a simultaneous, objective, external event that corresponds to the psychic state or content, where there is no evidence of a causal (cause and effect) connection between the psychic state and the external event, and where, considering the psychic relativity of space and time, such a connection is not even conceivable.
2. corresponding event at a distant location, out of the observer's field of perception
3. the coincidence of a psychic state with a corresponding, not yet existent future event that is distant in time and can likewise only be verified afterward

this is from his book synchronicity, an acausal connecting principle. i borrowed it and actually browsed through it.. he has some good points, but his shit on astrology i didn't bother to read. just some points that stood out. thanks again for the replies.

The entire universe as far back as we can see runs on the principle of causality without exception.

Acausality is mere misundertanding or arbitraily assigning importance to unrelated events.

so does this synchronicity about hambone make u want to go find out about this actual Hambone character? the original one that the people were talking about?

i mean.. u had a synchronicity about the original hambone.

or was the 2nd occurrence, the hambone u read about in the internet philosophy thread, the more important "hambone"?

This is just a courtesy notice that your thread "want to get really fucked up on drugs but don't want to OD" has been deleted by CherryBom.

Reason for deletion: I don't know what to make of this thread. Sounds like you might need some help of some kind. If you're not serious, it's a joke in really bad taste. I don't want to see anyone hurt.
