I've long held the belief that the "woo" is everpresent and never ending. Rather, it is the limit of our perspective that ebbs and flows.
I feel the same towards synchronicity. Where, every single thing within or without our awareness is connected and laden with "meaning." Interestingly, in that take on things, experiences of synchronicity actually show our limitations more than anything else.
Perhaps though, without the proper neurological structural foundation, thataway leads to insanity. So, we pick and choose which items and events are connected and meaningful, according to existing pathways, in order to protect too many large jumps and new connections all happening at once.
Its really kind of beautiful in a sense; we assign "specialness" in order to prevent the true immensity (beauty?) of the universe from invading our limited minds all at once. *POP!*

Imagine you're having a nightmare in a coma. What could be worse than that? Maybe that's what ghosts experience from the other side of death?
God Helmet was what I meant.
Pretend to be human?
Meditation May Lead to Volume Changes in Key Areas of the Brain
In 2011, Sara Lazar and her team at Harvard found that mindfulness meditation can actually change the structure of the brain: Eight weeks of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was found to increase cortical thickness in the hippocampus, which governs learning and memory, and in certain areas of the brain that play roles in emotion regulation and self-referential processing. There were also decreases in brain cell volume in the amygdala, which is responsible for fear, anxiety, and stress
There are several different types of brain waves that help regulate the flow of information between brain cells, similar to the way that radio stations broadcast at specific frequencies. Alpha waves, the focus of this study, flow through cells in the brain’s cortex, where sensory information is processed. The alpha waves help suppress irrelevant or distracting sensory information.
As the physicists explain, Hardy's paradox involves inequalities that correspond to the inequalities in Bell's theorem—a theorem showing that quantum mechanics must violate either locality or realism.
