In this session we shall explore the implications of synchronicity for our experience of and relationship to the physical world. The presumption of disenchanted science is that matter is in itself inherently inert and devoid of meaning. Contrary to this, with the concept of synchronicity as well as his use of alchemical symbolism, Jung proposed that meaning and numinosity, as expressions of the psychoid archetype, could be inherent properties of not only the psyche but also matter. Such a view arguably fosters a more participative and respectful, rather than instrumental and exploitative, relationship to the physical world. We shall examine some of the experiences and underpinning philosophical assumptions that have been invoked in support of this view.
