Synchronicities of Carl Jung Interpreted in Quantum Concept of Consciousness
Michael B. Mensky
The phenomenon of synchronicities which has been first described by Carl Jung, is explained in the framework of Extended Everett Concept proposed by the author. EEC differs from the Everett's “many-worlds interpretation” of quantum mechanics in that it explicitly includes the phenomena of consciousness, super-intuition (direct vision of truth) and ability to choose the version of reality which is to be subjectively experienced. Extended Everett Concept can explain synchronicities since, according to this theory, the subjective perception of reality by humans is governed not only by material causes but also by goals that may be immaterial (words, images or ideas).
