Here are some definitions to bear in mind when reading my future posts:

"Religious experience is numinous... and for me, as a psychologist, this experience differs from all others in the way it transcends the ordinary categories of space, time, and causality. Recently I have put a great deal of study into synchronicity (briefly, the 'rupture of time'), and I have established that it closely resembles numinous experiences where space, time, and causality are abolished."
                                                     - Carl Jung (from 1952 interview with Mircea Eliade)

apophenia: the spontaneous perception of connections and meaningfulness of unrelated phenomena.

Judge for yourself which fits.

This is my first attempt at a blog, so don't expect too much too soon, I'm still figuring things out. I'll play around with the template and other settings for a while, then get to the actual blogging, which I hope will be entertaining.

I used to publish (back in the old days, early 1990's, on PAPER) a zine called Tsujigiri (that's Japanese for "to try out one's new sword on a chance wayfarer" - meant in my case as a metaphor, no swords were literally used), "the zine of Orthodox Discordianism." In it, I kept an ongoing series of articles on the synchronicities I had surrounding the making of each issue, and people seemed to like it (I had around 500 subscribers, I'd guess, but copies would be passed around amongst friends so it is hard to say). Someday I'll get those zines (all five and a half) online, but for now I shall use this blog to relate some of my more interesting and intriguing meaningful coincidences from the old zines and since then. 

One word of warning, my spelling is atrocious, so while I will do my best to edit and use spell-check, just expect some typos and such, sorry!

Be Seeing You.
