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.

Physics Carl Jung comment.

Jung, Pauli and the Pursuit of a Scientific Obsession. According to Bohm’s [26] theory, there are three major realms of existence: But they raise a question: Pauli finished his analysis in and married again in the same year.

According to a certain view, synchronicity serves as a way of making sense of or describing some aspects of quantum mechanics. Synchronism is the prejudice of the East; causality is the modern prejudice of the West. It is also pointed out that, since Jung took into consideration only the narrow definition of causality — only the efficient cause — his notion of ” acausality ” is also narrow and so is not applicable to final and formal causes as understood in Aristotelian or Thomist systems.

Notes on the Seminar Given on by C.

Miller demonstrates that Puali provided insights which facilitated Pauli with his great contributions to science, notably the exclusion principle that bears his name, a linchpin of quantum physics. Journal for Jungian Studies. Scopri come i tuoi dati vengono elaborati. The flowing movement of the whole can thus be understood as a process of continuous enfolding and unfolding of order or structure.


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

He recalled the earlier incident and told his friends that only de Fontgibu was missing to make the setting complete — and in the same instant, the now-senile de Fontgibu entered the room, having got the wrong address. However, apart from the breakthroughs such intuitions produced, Pauli had reason to trust that the world was odder than he might otherwise think.

While she was still telling me this dream, I heard something behind me gently tapping on the window. That was odd enough, so early in the day.

A famous example of this is the fact that human face recognition is so robust, and based on such a basic archetype essentially two dots and a line contained in a circlethat human beings are very prone to identify faces in random data all through their environment, like the “man in the moon”, or faces in wood grain, an example of the visual form of apophenia known as pareidolia.

In this session, his patient was in the midst of relating an intense dream she had had in which someone gave her a piece of gold jewelry in the shape of a scarab beetle. In agreement with this, the concept of the case referred to seemingly random events could also be interpreted in terms of meaningful correspondences.

A man leaned out and brazenly asked her whether she would like to join him for coffee. How are we to recognize acausal combinations of events, since it is obviously impossible to examine all chance happenings for their causality? This trend continues to the present day, with some proclaiming him to have been the prophet of a New Age in human consciousness. In a perspective that includes human dignity and respect for nature, the ethical and religious could no longer be left aside as secondary aspects.


Jung believed life was not a series of random events but rather an expression of a deeper order, which he and Pauli referred to as Unus mundus.

Synchronicity – Wikipedia

In his book Synchronicity Jung tells the following story as an example of a synchronistic event:. A Case Study in Transdisciplinarity. It occurred about nine one morning, when she was walking her dog. The goal of this study syynchronicity to explore the role of unconscious in the development of science. It is evident that the synchronicity, as understood by Jung, could not be defined in the usual sense of physical science since it only makes sense at the moment when an individual lives the experience and therefore not reproducible as such.

Synchroniity was interested in those phenomena which elude the grasp of reason and in exploring the meaning of the scientific enterprise in general.


It is fascinating to follow how these two intellectual giants argue from different sides to find mutual enlightment [ sic ]. They are rare as events. From a general point uung view, the key-topic of the Jung-Pauli dialogue was the problem of psycho-physical relationships. For this reason Pauli preferred to speak of meaningful correspondences Sinnkorrespondenzen under the influence of an archetypal acausal ordering.
