A Tale of Two Synchronicities (cont.)
By Mark Grant
proceed by considering two macro syncs that occurred in relation to
the World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001 – a
tragedy that instantly became known as “9-1-1”. Each one
represents what I consider to be ‘relational’ design: a
sync that seems to reference another event.
most recent of these two events took place at the Belmont race track
in the state of New York. On the ten-year anniversary of “9-1-1”,
the first three races at were won by horses numbered 9, 1 and 1, in
made the news in a variety of media, including the online version of
England’s Daily Mail.
At the bottom of the page where the story was featured, a poster who
called himself Common Sense Connor wrote the following comment. And
it was an opinion that prevailed - by a 5-0 majority:
be fair i think every year on this day there could be some kind of
connection to 911 whether it be car racing or anything really if it
there people will find it.”
interpretation is both reasonable and conventional.
when one considers the nature of macronicity, or macro syncs,
Connor’s point is actually irrelevant. Here’s why.
premise I work from (which is only one way to view synchronicity) is
that syncs are designed events that are ‘meant to be’
to this interpretation, macro syncs are intended to be noticed by
groups. This means that the designed event must somehow be prominent,
easily discernible by the group.
constrains what can qualify as a valid macro sync, because it no
longer means that any
“9-1-1” correlation can suffice.
see how this works another way, consider a poker game setting.
start with a situation where a person gets dealt a royal flush,
against a chance likelihood of around 649,000 to 1.
who are familiar with poker would be very
impressed to see this. But those who are completely unfamiliar with
poker would not.
suppose that one such newbie was told this was amazing, because there
are only four ways out of 2.6 million that one can get a royal flush.
Suppose he counters by asking how often one could expect to see the
cards he was holding: a two of spades, jack of hearts, three of
diamonds, six of clubs and nine of diamonds.
answer is only one way. It follows that, technically speaking, royal
flushes are four times easier to get than the hand he was dealt.
our newbie’s hand is worthless in poker because
the rules of the game constrain what is acceptably improbable.
same logic applies to macro syncs: only prominent correlations
have bothered writing such an article, had the “9-1-1”
race results occurred on any other day other than September 11, which
is a prominent date by definition.
there would have been no article had the race results occurred in
Ecuador or Belize on a September 11. The Belmont race track results
were newsworthy because that track was a staging area for rescue
operations in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks. The
prominence requirement was once again met.
the other way, seeing a license plate in the parking lot wouldn’t
count either, because that doesn’t matter to the group –
to whom macro syncs are targetted. This would be one of many examples
that won’t make the grade because, for intuitively sound
reasons, we can’t use ‘any’ correlation.
same logic applies to another newsworthy story that occurred on the
of the attacks. On that day, the New York State three-ball lottery
took place, as it always does, two times a day. In the evening draw
the numbers 9,1 and 1 came up, in that exact order.
there are two draws, we
would expect to see that result on a 9/11, once
every five hundred September 11s.
Returning to the poker analogy, we’re talking full house odds:
1 every 508 hands.
at first glance that might not impress. Likewise with the race track
results. Computer screens can dull our minds in certain respects.
let’s look at these two macro syncs in two other ways.
in terms of real rarity.
the results are only meaningful on a September 11 (if the New York
state lottery extended far enough backward and forward in time) we
should have last expected to see such a 9-1-1 lottery result on a
sometime around the year 1511, not long after Columbus’s fabled
voyage. We would expect the next 9-1-1 result to occur around 2511.
are talking about a September 11 result that ought to happen around
twice every millennium. Yet it just happened to occur on the first
anniversary after 9/11.
with the horse races.
there were ten horses in each of those first three races at Belmont,
we would next expect to see a 9, 1 and 1 result in a thousand years
or so, around the year 3011. Or two such earlier results since the
time of Christ. Yet this result just happened to occur on the first
ten-year anniversary of 9/11.
the second point to consider.
is a fact that people note certain anniversaries more than others,
and 1ers and 10ers are among the most noted. This makes them
relatively prominent in the human imagination, compared to other
anniversaries. Had both results occurred on, say the 7th
anniversaries, it certainly would have been noteworthy. But a 1er and
a 10er are more impressive, generally speaking.
I close this section I wish to emphasize that I am not insisting that
a ‘designer’ must be behind either or both of these
events. If one is however, then according to designer theory, both
represent discreet forms of communication. Certain other things
become self-evident if these are acts of intervention. For one, the
‘designer’ demonstrates an awareness of our culture and
psychology. Likewise, it must have the ability to fix horse races,
and infiltrate one of the most safely-guarded institutions known to
man: the gaming industry.
I make no assertions regarding who the designer might be. It could be
one agent or more. That being said, it does seem that, in the better
instances, we may considering the handiwork of an entity(s) whose
ability to choreograph human events is God-like, or at the very
least, extremely advanced.

A second positive interpretation is that these results could be due to
some sort of mind-matter physics. According to that line of thinking,
the 9-1-1 results were a consequence of collective memory,
manifesting because, in fact, we humans tend to note one and ten year
anniversaries more than others.
the case of the conclusion of the Vancouver Olympic Games, what has
been generated according to this theory is a glimpse into the window
of the Canadian soul, and its peculiar affinity for ice hockey.
will stand out about this moment to Canadians, and ‘hockey
people’, is how the numbers of the players who teamed up to
score the “Golden Goal’ add up to 99. This number is
instantly recognizable, as it is the number of the greatest (most
prominent) hockey player in history, Wayne Gretzky. But as it turns
out, ‘99’ also contains other significant associations.

this spectacular macro sync may have been predicted in advance,
through symbolic association at the start of the same
I wish to emphasize that is possible that others may be able to
generate similar results in relation to most
goals or most
selected moments. This
remains to be seen. But the onus is on the skeptics to prove that
findings would support the “common sense” (conventional)
generalization: that one can find impressive (prominently placed)
patterns in most or all events, “if one looks long enough”.
