While the term syncromysticism is not yet accepted as legitimate English at this time, such ideas seem to be gaining traction with a growing number of
our fellow citizens. Syncromysticism is defined as "the art of attributing dynamic context to phenomena, allowing patterns, themes and insight to
arise out of a web of connections." The key word here is art, which is neither science nor empirical data but subjective constructs arising from the
creative id and psyche of humans. As we all know, individual humans view works of art - to include artwork, sculpture, plays, films, videos and even
cartoons and street theater - in highly individualist ways. Therefore, as a child of the science-oriented 50s and 60s, I am disinclined to place undue
faith on perceptions based on drama and speculation. Knowing both the creative process and the workings of Hollywood as I do, there have been many
wonderful and prescient subjects presented to the public by talented and often knowledgeable screenwriters. But their genius is all too often made
subservient to the demands of studio bean counters and marketeers.
But do not take this as in any way disparaging the concept of common themes arising out of the total human consciousness. A study of the historial
record clearly shows that many subjects and personalities thought to be separate actually stem from common antecedents. See my book Rule by Secrecy
for a discussion of how the names of Roman, Greek, Egyptian and Sumerian god-like entities all seem to point to a common ancestry in some reality.
Furthermore, as I live and learn, I am becoming less and less enamored with the concept of synchronicity, the idea that some things just happen to
coincide with no causality yet produce some meaning. I have become aware that events in our lives do not "just happen," they occur based on some
cosmic plan, the full details of which we are not aware. Therefore, there is the appearance of synchronicity but, in reality, all things happen for a
purpose. Such understanding, of course, leads one into the question of a supreme being vs. simply collective consciousness, a subject beyond this
But to you and all ATS members, I say - Keep thinking, speculating and wondering at the grand multi-dimensional universe around us for as Hamlet
stated, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
