I would agree with much of what you said except that i would change it to consider the mundane, everyday world always connected to a higher, less
physical, more spiritual world but not something to be discounted all together. We are made up of three different elements, our physical, ego driven
selves, our astral or spiritual selves, and our eternal divine pneuma, that animating substance which identifies only vaguely with the other two
parts. However, these three parts are bound together as one, neither exists without the other three. This is the same for our world, it is
fundamentally bound with and in constant contact and always affected by the spiritual world.
What we perceive as the "real world" is in fact only that part of our complete existence which manages to transcend the unconscious, spiritual,
abstract world and manifest itself in ways understandable to our tangible selves. Synchronicities are examples of forces just beyond our conception
of "reality" working in tandem to a given end (or out of pure coincidence as mathematics will not let us rule out the possibility of coincidence).
I believe odd things happen all the time but with training and experience in the discernment of such messages and symbols you will begin to see that
it happens constantly, in one way or another and you will, hopefully, be able to understand and implement the message if it is to your benefit and not
originating from darker forces.
I think you have to consider the overall condition of humanity to adress the question of synchronicity.
This is connected to Jungs theory of UFOS as being projections from our unviersal consciousness to remind us of our luminous, non physical source. In
the physical analogy of things, the 'sky' is the heavens, an orb a symbol for the soul. We look upwards and see our actual self, that is projected
on to the pallete of the heavens.
Likewise, synchronicties, Judaism called "small miracles" - as opposed to obvious miracles. These are 'coincidences' between the world of the
psyche and physical reality. These things occur to remind one of our everpresent source. When one is confronted with a synchronicity, the natural
response is amazement. It imbues one with a sense of awe. These events are designed to trigger in man an enthusiasm and zeal in his divine service.
Which in itself is told by solomon to "know g-d in all your ways".
In kabbalah its explained that this world is a direct reflection of the higher, abstract world. The latter is a world of concepts or archetypes.This
is a very complicated science to explain but in short, Hebrew is the language of creation. The 22 letters the '22 archetypal' states that typify
natural reality. These 22 'letters' are the roads between the 10 sefirot, or spiritual archetypes. These together constitute the 32 paths of wisdom
(the sefirot are 10 in number, with 22 possible paths, or connections between each sefirah). Reality is thus transposed into language. language is
reality. Even string thoery is showing the very sound like nature of reality - being made of 'strings' that vibrate. Each letter therefore
constitutes a basic concept. Each basic concept that joins with another basic concept creates a greater concept. The Hebrew word this creates is the
reality described. literally. hence, manipulation of hebrew words literally changes the reality (AbraCaDabra is hebrew for 'i create that which i
speak") it corresponds to. Thus, the torah describes creation as occurring through G-ds speech. we our made in his image and possess the same
ability, through Hebrew.
Thus, Concepts are the reality we experience in this world. Every thing. Whether an apple, a tree, a dog (Kelev in hebrew, means "like the heart")
etc, each item has a specific purpose which it derives its existence from. Its that divinity the creator put in it, that creates that reality.
to connect these worlds - spirit and matter, doesnt require an exact knowledge of the reality were experiencing. It helps to know hebrew and
understand the esoteric meaning of things. But in truth. simplicity is all thats needed. To know that theres a creator who created this world to SERVE
him, hence, this world is a 'garden' of eden, which requires people to tend it. We are there to tend it and make it grow, blossom and serve its end.
This is the period of the messianic age the torah and kabbalists speak of. The period when mankind collectively works to serve g-d, in whatever way
unique to the person.
