Can we quantify synchronicity and randomness ?
The two states, randomness and synchronicity, fundamentally belong together as "perceived states" that are relative to each observer and each state. This qualifies them as relative states. They are "symbiotic" in that our perception of them relies on there being a perceivable difference between them.Can we quantify synchronicity and randomness ?
Isn't it true that from certain moving frames of reference, those two actions could appear to NOT take place at the same time, and destroy any notion of synchronicity?Suppose that I wake up and randomly open an encyclopedia. On the page is an article about Selkirk Ontario. My wife walks in and says," Our friends just moved to Selkirk Ontario." 5 minutes pass. My painting of Napoleon falls for no apparent reason and shatters on the floor. On the front page of my newspaper is the headline, " Napoleon's birthday celebrated at the park." Obviously meaningless coincidences. However, suppose that these meaningless coincidences keep happening every 5 minutes for 7 years. I think that it would be rational to believe that something is going on. Now, when ( on what day of what year) do we say that randomness becomes synchronicity? How do we quantify the point at which randomness becomes sychronicity?
Yes, that's why I'm calling synchronicity a relative and perceived state.Isn't it true that from certain moving frames of reference, those two actions could appear to NOT take place at the same time, and destroy any notion of synchronicity?
I see, so if you open a book in the library at page 22, then you die 48 years later and someone else opens a book at page 22 this is sychronicity. Don't think so. Synchronicity is thoroughly time dependent. It must be perceived to have happened simultaneously or within a frame of reference... thus the relative nature of the event(s).Position in time does not effect the notion of synchronicity.
