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

The Synchronicity Storm - Exploring the Portals of Perception?πŸ‘½πŸŒ©πŸ¦‹

I found this 'Troubled Minds' podcast show/episode when I was searching for podcast episodes about synchronicity, as I wrote about in this recent post -
I thought I should have a listen to this episode of the show, even though it looks like one of those nut-bag 'The Secret Sun' type sites with followers who believe an Illuminati type organization control everything that happens on the planet and in the universe and that "God" is some piss-weak old man who can't control some evil fallen angel ... or some such BS.

In this episode the hosts of the podcast believe that they have come up with the term "synchronicity storm" or "sync-storm" which is a phrase I have heard other "sync-heads" use well before the words spilled from their "troubled minds" mouths.
I went on a net search to prove these 
"troubled minds" weren't the first ones to coin the term, and with some interesting results.

Hmm ... August 11 rings a synchromystic bell in my book -
Thor Chris was born on August 11?

That UFO/Ghost conference linked on the 'Troubled Minds' page looks interesting to me.
And having listened to that 'Troubled Minds' episode I do like that Strange guy's philosophy about agreeing to disagree with each other without cancelling the other, as so many net gurus today like to do to each other.

Beyond the Brain?πŸ§ πŸ¦‹

Exploring whether and how consciousness
beyond the physical brain
After listening to the latest of David Lorimer's 'Imaginal Inspirations' podcasts I clicked on a link to a conference he is starring in this November called 'Beyond the Brain' featuring a few familiar names whose work I am familiar with over the years.
And that subject I find beyond fascinating;-)
Imaginal Inspirations is hosted by David Lorimer, Programme Director of the Scientific and Medical Network and Chair of the Galileo Commission, an academic movement dedicated to expanding the evidence base of a science of consciousness. 
Imaginal cells are responsible for the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a butterfly, which is the Greek symbol for the soul. These cells are dormant in the caterpillar but at a critical point of development they create the new form and structure which becomes the butterfly.

I'm a big fan of butterflies now that I have spent quite a few visits to the butterfly house on Bribie Island and try to plan my trips to Bribie Island on the days that the 
butterfly house is open, in case I get the urge to unwind with the butterflies again -

Nine: A Number of Synchronicity ... The Ⅸ Files?

I stumbled across this
'IDEAS' podcast about the number 9 and synchronicity at the Player FM 'Best Synchronicity Podcasts' search page this morning after modifying my last post to explain about how I stumbled across the 'Paranormal Thoughts' podcast -
The Interviewer Becomes the Interviewed?πŸ‘½πŸ‘ΎπŸ›Έ
I was surprised to see the CBC 'IDEAS' podcast listed as a "synchronicity podcast" as I have listened to this podcast show in the past and would not expect to find it listed as a "synchronicity podcast" with these other more woo-woo shows on the page.
I found the CBC 'IDEAS' podcast originally through searching for podcasts about books I had been reading at the time such as 'Middlemarch' and 'War and Peace' -
George Eliot's Middlemarch?🐘
And overnight Australian time my EPL team Tottenham beat Liverpool, so I'm glad to see that I wasn't dreaming when I woke up this morning, even though my AFL team the 'Brisbane Lions' lost the grand final yesterday on the last day of the 9th month:-(

While there are a lot of number 9 synchronicities, as the 'IDEAS' guy from Winnipeg points out in the number 9 episode, what about the number 11, too?
And while I'm no Liverpool FC fan, I am a big fan of John Lennon and his music, hence my blog's title.

The Interviewer Becomes the Interviewed?πŸ‘½πŸ‘ΎπŸ›Έ

I find it amusing that in the age of the podcast there are a lot of people who become minor celebrities on the net because of the people they have interviewed in the past on their own podcast show, rather than becoming famous on their own terms and not just because of the people they have interviewed.
Gordon White of the Rune Soup blog and podcast and Mike Clelland of the 'Hidden Experience' blog and podcasts come to mind of examples of podcasters who have risen to minor fame because of the guests they have interviewed on their own shows and have in turn been chased by podcasters who probably want to do the same thing through who they interview on their own podcast show.

Well, Speak of the Davis, Ain' t That Weird?πŸŒƒπŸŒ‰

I had just written a post about P.K. Dick featuring an old 'Aeon Byte Radio' interview with Erik Davis and as I'm wondering what Erik has been up to recently the latest 'Weird Studies' podcast hits my Apple Podcast playlist featuring an interview with Erik Davis ... and I had just had 3 fillings done at the dentist on September 26th, 2023, to put a P.K. Dick 'VALIS' spin on my life:-)I won't be reading 'The Night Land' (abridged or otherwise) anytime soon with the reading list I already have before me ... before I die -

The Challenges of Writing a Novel ... and Owls? πŸ“šπŸ¦‰

Humm ... the "Owl Guy" puts a post up on the 26th of September and an "Owl Guy" passes away on the 28th of September?
I'll bet Joanne Rowling could tell Mike a thing or two about writing novels, but he could probably tell her a thing or two about owls and synchronicity?-)

Why Do We Push People Away?✋

A 'This Jungian Life' podcast titled 'Why Do We Push People Away? Understanding Our Defenses' dropped unto my Apple Podcast playlist after I had posted my last post about Oscar Wilde and it made me think of the British comedian Dick Emery and how some of his characters would say "Oh, you are awful, but I like you" and then give them a hard push -
Seems like Emery would often push people away in his real life, as well, after watching a You Tube titled 'Dick Emery - Famous Grave - Ooh You Are AWFUL... but I LIKE YOU!'.
But how much of what is said in that You Tube just mythistory?
