" Synchromysticism:
The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

What Peak Experiences Reveal About Consciousness?

I've written posts about the work of Dr. Robert Davis before and now today Alex at 'Skeptiko' plays Skeptiko Jeopardy with the Dr.Who of the Woo -
Dr. Robert Davis, What Peak Experiences Reveal About Consciousness #419
Peak Experiences and the Brain?
Contact with Non-Human Intelligence?
Bob's work is a bit like trying to herd cats, don't you think?
But I admire his efforts when it comes to such an elusive task.

Hip Gnosis 1: An Introduction to Synchromysticism by Jake Kotze and Kevin Halcott?

If Jake Kotze is born on March 17th (St.Patrick's Day) wouldn't that make him resonate with the green man and the fool?
Jupiter Gets Hit on Jake Kotze's Birthday?!
I was listening to Jake in this podcast/Vimeo -
Hip Gnosis 1: An Introduction to Synchromysticism
where Jake says he shares March 17th as his birthday with
Kurt Russell.
Where's St.Patrick when you need him?-)
I decided to look up on the IMDB site just which other actors shared March 17th with these two and was rather surprised.
Rob Lowe in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999)
Surely St.Patrick can't be his real birth surname?!
Dana Reeve was in the TV series 'Oz' and she passed away in New York.
If you don't get those references then listen to that Hip Gnosis talk and listen to Jake talk about 'The Wiz'.
I notice that William Gibson also born of March 17th has written a movie yet to be made called 'Pattern Recognition' about a "marketing consultant, who has a psychological sensitivity to corporate symbols, who is hired to seek the creators of film clips anonymously posted to the internet - before uncovering a larger conspiracy."
I hate to rain on the St.Patrick's Day sync parade, but serial killer clown John Wayne Gacy wasn't only born on March 17th, but also in 1942.
God Does Not Play Dice?
I do find it rather synchromystically spooky that the late Dana Reeves was in the TV show 'Oz', as was the late Luke Perry and that Mathew St.Patrick was in an episode of 'Beverly Hills, 90210' a show where Luke Perry was one of the main stars.
The Apophenia of Oz in 02019?
Luke Perry as Reverend Jeremiah Cloutier in Oz
One of Luke Perry's last movies was the yet to be released
'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood', which also stars Kurt Russell.
I guess synchromysticism really is all in the stars, like Jake says;-)

Stranger Things 3, BTTF and Apophenia?

Watching the above episode of 'Stranger Things 3'  titled
'The Mall Rats' I think it is quite clear coincidental that the Duffer brothers are giving us sync-heads who worked on
'Back to the Future Predicts 9/11' a shout out, especially to Joe's Apophenia Productions label of sync films on You Tube.
But maybe I'm seeing things in 'Stranger Things 3' that just really aren't there at all, right Duffers?-)
I guess it's more fun if we don't really know if the Duffers are screwing with us, or it is all just one big cosmic coincidence, right Andrew?
Catch the Wave?

I'm only up to episode three, but I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for other stranger things that might come up ... whether they are actually there or not;-)

Stranger Things 3: Everything Gives You Cancer or Could Kill You?

My old sync-head mate over at the 'Red Dirt Report' wrote a post in the 'Dust Devil Dreams' section called 'Catch the Wave' where he admitted to also being a Coke-head and pointed out the product placement of Coca-Cola in the new season of 'Stranger things 3'.

There has also been articles in the media about the number of cigarettes smoked in 'Stranger Things 3', such as this one in the link below -
Does Netflix glamorize tobacco? 79% of top streaming shows feature cigarette-smoking in hundreds of scenes, study finds
I thought I'd mull over that figure as I started watching season 3.
I watched season one when it came out, but gave season 2 a miss.
Now I just started watching season 3, skipping season 2 altogether.
I wasn't going to watch it at all, but I've read Chris Knowles post at 'The Secret Sun' about the latest season and now I've read Andrew's post and was starting to get FOMO (fear of missing out) and could feel the peer pressure mounting, plus I hadn't had a smoke for quite some time and thought watching the show would warm my lungs with nostalgia.
And now the local newspapers are telling me sugary cola drinks could give me cancer, so maybe I should stick stick with my beer and red wine?-)
I've come too far in life to risk dying in my future by swapping beer and wine for Coke.
It certainly is a house of cards when watching TV and worrying about everything that could potentially kill you in the future.
And that's not counting the POTUS;-)
That gives me an idea for a TV series about a brain dead POTUS, which I'll use the working title of 'The Walking Dead Zone' while I put my ideas down of paper.
I might need to get a few cans of these for the late nights ahead while I write the manuscript for that TV series?-)

The Comet is Coming?

'The Comet Is Coming' is a London-based band who incorporate elements of jazz, electronica, funk and psychedelic rock.
I had not heard of this band until a day or two ago when I heard one of the 'Real Wisdom' guys telling the 'Future Thinkers' guys in the You Tube interview in the post in the link below how they really like this band and how they would like to interview the saxophonist -
The Intellectual Deep Web, Future Thinkers & Rebel Wisdom?
I can't say that I'll be throwing out my 'Pink Floyd' albums just yet after having a listen to a few of the Comet is Coming's tunes on You Tube, but I did find some infomation at their Wikipedia page a little eye opening and wondered just what it is they were channeling exactly?
Prophecy (The Comet Is Coming EP)
For instance, "their debut EP Prophecy was released on limited edition 12" vinyl on 13 November 2015, with the full-length album Channel The Spirits following on 1 April 2016.
Channel the Spirits was nominated for the 2016 Mercury (the god of financial gain, commerce, eloquence, messages, communication {including divination}, travelers, boundaries, luck, trickery and thieves; he also serves as the guide of souls to the underworld?) Music Prize and in 2018 the band signed to Impulse! Records."
13 November 2015
November 13th, 2015 would have seemed like the final days of the apocalypse too I'm sure if you happened to be on the street that night.
'Channel the Spirits' released April Fool's Day, 2016
And exactly one month before the Notre Dame fire of April 15th 'The Comet is Coming' released their album
'Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery' with the track 'Summon the Fire' one of the main tracks off it.
A Hell of a Coincidence, Too?
I guess that should keep the conspiracy theorists busy until the comet hits.
When's the next album coming out again?-)
With this band's past track record my guess would be if
the comet is coming it is going to hit Paris for sure.
