Words, Sigils, Squiggles and Wishes?
How do these Harry Potter types claim a word that's not even theirs to claim, like some piece of luggage they found at a chaotic train station?
"Steven Sutcliff and Carole Cusack describe synchromysticism as "part artistic practice, part spiritual or metaphysical system, part conspiracy culture", while Jason Horsley describes it as "a form of postmodern animism" that "combines Jung's notion of meaningful coincidences with the quest for the divine, or self-actualization through experience of the divine.""
""Synchromysticism, a portmanteau of synchronicity and mysticism, is "the art of realising meaningful coincidences in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance"."
A portmanteau or portmanteau word (from English "portmanteau", a kind of luggage; in French: mot-valise) is a blend of words in which parts of multiple words are combined into a new word, as in smog, coined by blending smoke and fog, or motel, from motor and hotel.
In linguistics, a portmanteau is a single morph that is analyzed as representing two (or more) underlying morphemes.
|The word was coined by Jake Kotze in August 2006?|
"Chaos magic[k]ians" seem good at deluding themselves, but how do they pull a "synchromysticism" out of their hat?
Methinks you "chaos magickians" play with your wands way too much if you think you guys are engineering synchronicities:-)
"The Washington Post wrote that synchromystics "... believe that 9/11 and 'Back to the Future'—and everything in the universe, really—are connected by a vast Web of unseen, mystical, esoteric ties."
Good Magazine also covered the video and synchromysticism in Did 'Back to the Future' Predict 9/11?"
I think the "synchromystics" have a better idea of what "synchromysticism" is about, rather than the "chaos magicians";-)Close, but no cigar when it comes to magic and synchromystism I think.
