law of truly large numbers (coincidence)
“That a particular specified event or coincidence will occur is very unlikely. That some astonishing unspecified events will occur is certain. That is why remarkable coincidences are noted in hindsight, not predicted with foresight.”–David G. Myers
The law of truly large numbers says that with a large enough sample many odd coincidences are likely to happen.

In this article the author looks at the events of 9/11 and its aftermath through the eyes of Carl Jung. He examines how Jung would have reacted to the events of 9/11. He points out that Jung believed very strongly in coincidence. But, would he have thought that 9/11 was a coincidence, something hidden in the collective unconsciousness. Maybe the unconscious beliefs of government officials, the CIA and FBI who knew that there was something going to happen, but didn’t know when or where or even how. The paper goes on to describe how Jung would have categorized the different reactions of the American people after 9/11 in his terms of introvert and extrovert personalities. The author examines the different archetypes that Jung proposed in terms of 9/11. The paper concludes with the statement that even Jung would have not have been able to explain the “why?” of the terrorist attacks and what they hoped to accomplish.From the Paper
“Jung dreamt a great deal about the dead, the land of the dead, and the rising of the dead. These represented the unconscious itself — not the “little” personal unconscious that Freud made such a big deal out of, but a new collective unconscious of humanity itself. It would be interesting to assume that the thousands who died at the World Trade Center, the Pennsylvania field and at the Pentagon were somehow part of a Jungian dream. But, while we might think of Freud and Jung as seeing psychosis in dreams, Jung was more realistic. “Jung felt that, if you want to understand the jungle, you can’t be content just to sail back and forth near the shore. You’ve got to get into it, no matter how strange and frightening it might seem” (Boeree 1).”

Researching Big Dreams, Their Correlates, and Their Effects
Significant Dreams and Transpersonal Awareness
Matthew S. Allen, Roger M. Knudson
This paper reviews the literature on significant dreams and transpersonal states of awareness. An attempt is made to examine the role of significant dreams in the development of transpersonal awareness. Reference will be made to dreams provided by research participants.
Neuropsychological Correlates of Big Dreams
This presentation will present preliminary findings from a research project on highly memorable dreams, and will discuss the possible neuropsychological correlates of these unusual types of dreams.

The Century of the Self posted 03/21/2006, 9:29 PM (InformationLiberation)
The Untold History Of Controlling The Masses Through The Manipulation Of Unconscious Desires
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.
We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized.” – Edward Bernays
THE CENTURY OF THE SELF
Adam Curtis’ acclaimed series examines the rise of the all-consuming self against the backdrop of the Freud dynasty.
To many in both politics and business, the triumph of the self is the ultimate expression of democracy, where power has finally moved to the people. Certainly the people may feel they are in charge, but are they really? The Century of the Self tells the untold and sometimes controversial story of the growth of the mass-consumer society in Britain and the United States. How was the all-consuming self created, by whom, and in whose interests?
The Freud dynasty is at the heart of this compelling social history. Sigmund Freud, founder of psychoanalysis; Edward Bernays, who invented public relations; Anna Freud, Sigmund’s devoted daughter; and present-day PR guru and Sigmund’s great grandson, Matthew Freud.
Sigmund Freud’s work into the bubbling and murky world of the subconscious changed the world. By introducing a technique to probe the unconscious mind, Freud provided useful tools for understanding the secret desires of the masses. Unwittingly, his work served as the precursor to a world full of political spin doctors, marketing moguls, and society’s belief that the pursuit of satisfaction and happiness is man’s ultimate goal.

Abstract: Based on survey data gathered before and after September 11, this study examines the relationship between “Internet connectedness” and communicative actions after crisis. The study found that (1) people heighten their dependency relations with mass media forms no matter whether they had and Internet connection or not after the September 11th, (2) “Internet high connectors” intensified their Internet connection even more strongly and expanded their scope of communication media after 9/11; (3) “Internet low connectors” decreased the intensity of their Internet connection and narrowed their scope of communication media after 9/11; and (4) Internet high connectors participated in a broader range of civic activities in response to September 11th, than low- and non-connectors did.

A DANGEROUS OPPORTUNITY
The Spiritual Challenges of the Events of September 11th 2001
Published in the December 2001 issue of
‘The Scientific and Medical Network Review’.
“A new order on earth will not begin, I believe, until we all learn to see the pollution in our hearts. And that will not happen until many of us, a critical mass, experience with remorse, a real change of consciousness.”
Asking for the Earth by James George
When the Terrorist planes flew into the Twin Towers on the fateful morning of September 11th, something became activated in the planetary psyche that changed the world forever. Before that shock, a complacency existed. Before that shock, many of us had never really wanted to open our eyes to see and face the imbalances and violence in our world, and if we did we would simply say to ourselves: “Well, that is the way things are and always have been. C’est la vie!”
But no longer. As those towers crumbled, something also shattered in our own psyches, which in many people gave rise to the realisation that violence and terrorism was no longer something that happened over there, to them; it was also a reality in our own midst and belonged to all of us. It was Gurdjieff who warned us never to underestimate the transformational possibilities of shock. In his eyes, man being the “spiritually asleep” creature that he was, if he wished to wake up he generally needed to experience a shock greater than the sum of his own inertia. And that is exactly what has happened. The word crisis in Chinese is translated “dangerous opportunity.” And this is what we now face.
For a long time, there has existed what we might call an “Alternative Movement” on the planet. Whether we refer to those comprising it as Alternativists, social or spiritual activists, or Aquarian Conspirators, radical philosophers, ecological warriors, peacemakers, New-Agers or whatever, does not matter. What is significant is that many people have come up with ingenious solutions to our world problems, and are in touch with important antidotes to help our planet work more effectively and be a healthier place in which to live.
But always the problem has been the “powers that be”, or the pedagogical forces – those who “run things”. They have always resisted, closed their eyes, said, “no” to innovation.
September 11th, however, has changed this. The events of that date have catalysed a whole new climate of potential openness to change, and while this may not yet be visible (as I write, bombs are still dropping in Afghanistan) we must not forget to look beneath the surface. I have travelled quite extensively since September 11th and wherever I have been, I have encountered people asking many new questions – talking about the need to have a new kind of world come into being, a kinder, gentler more humane world, and who are prepared now, for the first time, to do something to have this come about.
In the words of Christopher Fry in his play A Sleep of Prisoners
“Dark and cold we may be,but this is no winter now.
The frozen misery of centuries breaks, cracks begins to move.
The thunder is the thunder of the floes, the thaw, the flood, the upstart spring.
Thank God our time is now when wrong comes up to face us everywhere
Never to leave us till we take the longest stride of soul man ever took.”
Why these September 11th events are so different from all other previous crises that have also exposed anomalies in the system, is that this crisis went right to the very jugular of western society; it has highlighted certain wrongs so forcefully that we can no longer avoid seeing them.

To September 11th
The shocking attacks upon the World Trade Center and the Pentagon have struck far deeper into our conscious and unconscious minds than any of us has begun to imagine. The anger that has now settled into the minds of most of us is certainly understandable, deriving as it does from a fear of our vulnerability and a failure of expectations that our political systems would protect us from such harm. This anger, driven by a desire for revenge, does not subside, for the perpetrators of this crime are dead, and it is unclear to most of us who else might be implicated. So intense is this anger that those among us who fail to voice it with sufficient heat, or resist the cries of “war,” themselves become subject to attack.
I have devoted the majority of my adult years to addressing the deadly, destructive, and dehumanized nature of the world in which we live. We live in conflict because our thinking is in conflict. We have organized ourselves into rigidly-defined categories based upon race, ethnicity, nationality, ideology, religion, economic interests, geography, and countless other identities, and vigorously defend the boundaries of such categories from those outside. Politics mobilizes such identities, promising each of these groups the coercive backing of the state to advance their interests.
Political systems operate upon a vertical, top-down model of decision-making, as was best represented in the pyramidal structuring of Plato’s Republic. Those in authority are presumed to have a superior wisdom and access to information to justify their making decisions for all of society. Most of us have been conditioned to buy into this model, as reflected in the oft-quoted phrase “the more complex society, the greater the need for government.”
In recent years, however, there has been a growing awareness of the fallacy of such a premise, and an understanding that only decentralized, spontaneous systems and practices – such as the marketplace – are capable of dealing with the uncertainties of a complex world. We have been witnessing the collapse of the vertical, and the emergence of a more horizontal, model of social organizations. Institutionalized health care is being challenged by alternative, individually-directed health practices. The awareness that police are unable to protect us from crime has generated an interest in martial arts, private weapons, and electronic protection of homes. The failure of government schools has led increasing numbers of parents into private schools and homeschooling. Most of us no longer depend on the vertically structured institutional media (“we will tell you what we want you to know”) for information, but communicate with one another through the horizontally driven Internet. Even political systems have become subject to such decentralizing trends: secession movements and the collapse of the Soviet Union being the more evident examples.
The terrifying events of September 11th provided perhaps the most chilling evidence of the failure of the political model.

Estimating the Effects of September 11th and Other Forms of Violence on the Mental Health and Social Development of New York City’s Youth: A Matter of Context
J. Lawrence Aber?
New York University
Elizabeth T. Gershoff?
Jennifer A. Kotler?
This longitudinal study examines the effects of exposure to the terrorist attack of September 11th as well as exposure to other forms of community violence on change in the mental health and social attitudes of youths in New York City. Three quarters of the youths reported some form of direct exposure to the events of September 11th, and 80% reported a lot of exposure to at least 1 form of media coverage of September 11th; these rates were comparable with the citywide survey of public school students in New York City conducted by the New York City Department of Education. Results of a structural equation model that included controls for previous levels of mental health and social attitudes, as well as a range of demographic factors, indicated that direct exposure and family exposure to the event did not predict change in any mental health outcomes, but did predict change in levels of social mistrust; media exposure did predict posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms. In contrast, victimization by other forms of violence was strongly associated with change in or current levels of all of the examined mental health symptoms, whereas witnessing other forms of violence was associated with change in or levels of 3 of 4 mental health symptoms and with increased hostile attribution bias and levels of social mistrust. Implications of the results for applied developmental and public mental health strategies in response to traumatic events are discussed.

Synchronicity – the principle of Meaningful Coincidences. This is a somewhat mystic / psychobabble source, but a readable summary of Jung and Synchronicity, and relationship to “new physics” of the early 20th century.
Chris Lofting’s web-site on Meaning from a Semiotic Perspective also includes Jungian Typology and the I Ching as applied to psychometric profiling (a la Myers-Briggs) etc.
Spooky synchronicity developing between non-locality, paranormal, quantum computing & information. Stapp and Josephson would clearly appear to be onto something.
Flight to New Reason
When taking stock I noticed that I started this Blog 2 days after September 11th 2001.
The lines of thought here had been keeping me awake at nights long before 9/11 woke the world. Nothing in this Blog has anything directly to do with those events, but I’m not alone in being awoken to the power of the Blog by their information aftermath. Perhaps in some small way the idea that western rational arrogance, which dogs progress in so many aspects of life, can be influenced by my puny efforts to bring alternative philosophies into the mainstream. Many greater people than I have tried before and failed over three millennia, so I’m not holding my breath. If 9/11 brings anything new to this ancient debate, apart from its awful significance, it is the fact that the antidote to classical logic is sure as hell not a flight from reason. That way lies only evil. The words “creative destruction” can never again be used lightly.
