    The Englishman tells Santiago that he would like to write, “a huge encyclopedia just about the words of luck and coincidence. It’s with those words that the universal language is written” (70). The Swiss psychologist Carl Jung coined the term “synchronicity” to describe such moments of meaningful coincidence. An example of when Santiago experiences this kind of synchronicity is when a thief takes his money is and he finds the crystal merchant. He finds this opportunity for work in the same town right after he loses his possessions. This experience reveals much about Santiago’s destiny because before he left the crystal merchant he was going to go back to being a shepherd. After a year with the merchant, he continues on his path toward the treasure. Another example of synchronicity is when Santiago meets Fatima. On his trek Santiago meets a girl and, “What the boy felt at this moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing” (93). This is synchronicity for two reasons. The first reason is because he meets the love of his life in a desert oasis, on a journey for treasure and finds his ultimate treasure. The second way this is synchronicity is that her name is Fatima, which means…

The whole idea of wellness and self-care seemed a little trendy for me but I soon overcame my reluctance, becoming more intrigued as I delved into the statements, bonus questions, and sentence completions. In the past, as both a teacher and…

    science studies. This linear causality structure: if A causes B, then to give B, A must have occurred first. The other principle was the acausal connection. This principle was called by Jung and Pauli "synchronicity" because they assumed that, contrary to the principle of causality, the acausal events were structured in space and did not need to relate the contest time. Or what is the same: the synchronicity states that two facts are related simultaneously. This logic is the logic of the deep…

    I never truly understood what an epiphany was. It wasn’t until I ran into the Northwestern Memorial Hospital ICU and saw my father in septic shock that I knew what I wanted to be. My mother and I held each other, seeing him intubated and connected to countless machines. We didn’t know if he was going to survive. Soon, specialists and nurses came in and started taking care of my dad. I was amazed at their organization – I had never seen so many people working in such synchronicity. They drained…
