can we do some synchronicity experiments?
i am 100% certain that dissensus is generating fairly exciting and sometimes alarming synchronicities for it's users all the time. i'm quite confident about that.

perhaps we can be more deliberate? set up the laboratory apparatus, do some scenarios, explode some hypotheses

my feeling, dear uncle sufi, is that science is fake and therefore no reliable information can be gathered by scientific means. but perhaps there is no harm in trying.

i remember my cousin Tom telling me about his hippy girl he was seeing and how he realised she could be manipulated by making everything seem like a freaky coincidence so he could get what he wanted all the time lol

i don't beleive in appohenia. i think the word is itself a conspiracy. i think the real issue is with people shooing away evidence of connections which are concrete and undeniable and have far reaching consequences.
hmmm. just as i expected this word was invented by a Nazi.

Klaus Conrad was a German neurologist and psychiatrist with important contributions to neuropsychology and psychopathology. He joined the Nazi Party in 1940.

Experiments with synchronicity are tricky. They seems to be happening to you, but as Jung's text keeps reinforcing the numinous seems involved because you could factor in or defer to a first cause, Judge Holden's 'larger will'.

A cut up might work due to the whole how random is random Burroughs spiel. You'd get to the writer of synchronous scripts that route, or part its ongoing story lines. Even then the nebulous world of associations will automatically spiral off. Old Alan Moore's intentional walk could be better for some, trigger subconscious neural activity, just expect the unexpected.

Ayn Rand's Sexual Personnae
Ayn Rand had a long-term affair with her student Nathaniel Brandon, while both of them were married, by persuading her husband and Branden's wife that it was "logical and rational" for the two of them to have an affair.

You gotta admit, that's a hell of a pulling technique.

I saw a Spongebob clip earlier and it happened to have Man Ray in it. Weird after he came up last night re: The Black Dahlia.

Does it seem to anyone else as if someone's jacked up the synchronicity dial on the simulation lately? Could be an effect of lockdown - narrower bandwidth access to the world, so coincidences happen/get noticed more often...
Frequently since March. 'The Wasteland''s been cutting in and out of a few.

Having a bout right now: in the past 24 hours, I've had four separate, unrelated sources (2 books, 1 song, 1 YT video) reference the goddess Fortuna and/or the wheel of fortune. I wasn't seeking it out.

Then today I Soulseek'd the second Section 25 LP which I've never heard before, and thought I'd listen to it while doing an easy but boring task for a neighbour...and this fucker popped up four songs in:


Thing is...it's fine to get these coincidences, but what is Fortuna really trying to tell me? How can I turn these coincidences to my advantage? I mean, if it's just a hello from the underworld, that's skip dandy...but am I supposed to buy some XRP? Go to the bookies? Avoid leaving the flat for 72 hours? Take up online poker? Steal a car and drive to Barnard Castle? Now Fortuna's got my attention, I wish she'd give me a hint.

You should immediately make and consume four tuna sandwiches.

That's even more weird, because not long finished an episode tonight of Boardwalk Empire where Gyp Rosetti gets the hand written Bone For Tuna note and kicks off

This was another doozy...in between finishing "White Chappell, Scarlet Tracings" and George Floyd getting killed. From a book of reprints of '60s Situationist small-press publications, put out in the 2000s:
