A Tale of Two Synchronicities
By Mark Grant
Mark Grant holds an bachelors degree in International Studies, with
minors in Economics, Political Science and Sociology. He studied Law,
but after successfully completing his first year decided to travel the
Two of his main interests are mysticism and spirituality, which is
reflected in many of the places he has been to, including Giza, Luxor,
Mount Sinai, Old Jerusalem, Nazareth, the Parthenon, Lourdes, Mother
Teresa's missionary, Sai Baba's ashram, a cave where Doubting Thomas
lived for five years, Nara, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Diamond Head,
Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Chitzen Itza, Palenque and more.
This is his second book.
Common Sense Connor and the English case of Man
the title of my book plainly states, what I have to present is a work
based on synchronicity.
is the study of what some regard as meaningful coincidences. The term
was coined by the famous Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung.
my book I subdivide synchronicity into two categories.
or micro syncs, concern synchronicity that is observed at the
personal level. This is where most of the focus is, or has been, so
refer to ‘syncs’ that are public in nature. This
dimension of synchronicity is far less explored. I hope my own
investigation makes the point that macro syncs deserve greater
consideration than they have been given thus far.
personally believe that my book was largely the result of a guided
process, one that eventually led me to find both micro and macro
syncs on some of the world’s biggest stages, namely sporting
events like Super Bowls, Olympic Games and World Cups. Along the way
I found more of the same during my tour of duty in the world of
Hollywood, where I worked for a year and a half as a movie and
can get a flavour of how this process unfolded by referring to the
second of the two sample chapters in my book, found in this
link. Just click on the cover.
I finished the manuscript in late May of this year. It was certainly
convenient that just a couple of weeks before I was finally done, a
macro sync occurred in England which speaks to this overall theme.
This celebrated event was seen by millions of people in Britain and
more worldwide. As this is an English board I would like to discuss
that event and why I believe it is a fine example of macronicity, the
recent case of what I have called Man
I feel it is wise to first address what I anticipate will be the
conventional interpretation of synchronicity. In order to do this
properly, I believe I should address the matter in two ways: by
addressing the reasonable skeptic and the pseudo skeptic next.
that note, I will begin the next section by addressing a point made
by a presumably open and “fair-minded” fellow who calls
himself “Common Sense Connor”.
