This is a very good response that really made me sit back and think.
I don't believe in coincidences. I believe in synchronicity. Your post brings to mind Jacques Vallee's control system which The Gut has an
excellent thread on Here .
I'm not opposed this idea. In fact, I find his theory of a control system, rather compelling.
I am familiar with Vallée's long work. Have also poured over the thread you linked. But this takes some explaining, because their is a divergent
thought duality going on here. The idea of what you are calling synchronicity or thought and attraction wasn't discovered by him. Its been with us for
many generations. Also, I am not sure how other people are defining what he refers to as a control system
. I do understand that it is connected
with the concept of an information loop, thus human perception. But, from my study of what I would term the Hynek/Vallée configuration, it is an
offshoot of the Law of Attraction (i.e.The Secret by Rhonda Byrd), also referred to as the Universal Mind, as part of our discussion.
The Hynek Vallée theorem combines elements of this Law of Attraction (assuming the universe stores information and has a thought responsive
information loop), with an alleged connection of folkloric beings together with interpreted behavior of modern UFO and occupant contact. Vallée's
work is derived from a narrow focus of information on high strangeness events (i.e. saucer lands in French grape vineyard, small humanoid hands the
farmer a pancake
), and from such cases interprets them as illogical and therefore paranormal, as opposed to physical. This would be the best
breakdown of the term IDH (inter-denominational hypothesis).
There is a life long connection between Vallée and Hynek (who as well disposes all UFO sightings as mere imagery of a type) who knew one another
academically years prior to Blue Book and Sign. I'm just saying all of this because Mr. Vallée on one hand has stepped away from scientific principle
and on the other has played himself as a scientist aspiring to rewrite the extraterrestrial (physical alien) narrative.
My point is, that I know Vallée believes in an information loop that is activated "intelligently", and yet the way he uses that word alters the
entire context of this concept. I think by taking the basic principle of a universal information feed and incising it with the concept of a "control",
what he is saying about it, is that other intelligences
can use it against us.
In his first publications, he suggested it sort of cryptically when he stated that the actions of UFOs and so-called extraterrestrials or aliens
interactions with human beings were so illogical that they couldn't even be physical. So here we are, forty years later talking about UFOs as
illusionary projections and semi fluid apparitions, concocted by some undefined intelligence to fool us into believing that they are benevolent,
physical extraterrestrials here to save us from ourselves. This to me, seems more in line with our primeval mind, adopted from the narrative of the
I think synchronicity is a great term if used to define what we might think of as the quantum equilibrium of the physical reality. It is the
manifestation of our thoughts and desires, which is empowering. But I would recommend The Secret, by Rhonda Byrd if you would like to explore the
basic tenets of the original idea.
The Hynek/Vallée configuration uses elements of the basic story of synchronicity or the law of attraction, but takes it to a very cynical level. In
effect, the very ideas proposed by their negative connotations would present a ripple in the time-space fabric of the information loop. The effect,
according to Vallée's own belief, would actually feed itself into the public psyche.
I would only say that, if there is a control system, it would be the human mind, as the cosmic fabric of information would simply react to the
creations of thought. In other words, if one imagines (or believes) that invisible entities can create the illusion of contact with extraterrestrials
en masse, then this would be the new psycho-spiritual paradigm made manifest. If the universe does have a thought responsive synchronicity, then it
only stands to reason that its a force controllable through our own thinking, hopes, dreams, desires and fears. Not a force controlled by invisible
entities acting in proxy. If this were the case, there would be no chance for humanity to survive and therefore no purpose for its existence.
