Now, after contextualizing Jung's work in relation to contemporary scientific advancements such as relativity and quantum theories, Joseph Cambray explores in this book how Jung's theories, practices, and clinical methods influenced the current field of complexity theory, which works with a paradox similar to Jung's synchronicity: the importance of symmetry as well as the need to break that symmetry for "emergence" to occur. Finally, Cambray provides his unique contribution to the field by attempting to trace "cultural synchronicities," a reconsideration of historical events in terms of their synchronistic aspects. For example, he examines the emergence of democracy in ancient Greece in order "to find a model of group decision making based on emergentist principles with a synchronistic core."

Couldn't stay engaged for more than a minute
Is there anything you would change about this book?
To be read by the author or someone interested in the topic
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Didn't reach the end
What aspect of Thomas M. Perkins’s performance might you have changed?
To liken this reading to text I would say there were no paragraphs, it was one constant stream of dialogue. Not that his performance wasn't good because compared to other narrators he was.
Any additional comments?
Perhaps it was the text itself, I don't know but it seemed a dry soulless presentation, I would like to have heard it narrated by someone more passionate about Jung and synchronicity

At a loss for words
I found this book at a time in my life when I was awakening to the messages of the Universe as witnessed in the constellations outside my porch and by the visiting falcons, owls, crows, ravens, robins, dragonflies, butterflies, etc. Reading this book was simultaneously like reading some lost scripture and my personal diary. A very important work. I will treasure it always.

Dense, but Worth the Listen!
many of the concepts addressed in this book drawn field experience and subject-specific knowledge. However, it is more than worth the while to give this book a listen. It has exposed me to New Concepts and vocabulary that I would not have otherwise experienced. I personally have experienced many synchronistic events in my life. It was very nice to hear them put into a frame of reference I can understand. I will definitely be pursuing more information along the same topic.
