The experience of meaningful coincidences is universal. They are reported by people of every culture, every belief system, and time period. Traditionally these synchronistic events are made acceptable by ascribing them to outside supernatural forces such as divinities, or more modernly, impersonal archetypal influences.
Synchronicity examines the actual empirical evidence for the human influence on the meaningfulness of events and the way the computational model of the mind predicts how we perceive meaning. It demonstrates to the reader that these events, based on the activity of the mind, are caused by the person who perceives them, and reflect many levels of their consciousness.
Kirby’s book, Synchronicity shows the reader that these events are mirrors of their mind, actually manifesting in the events around them, often reflecting unconscious processes. It explains in concrete terms how what we believe and the way we look for patterns in the world generates synchronistic events that mirror our own assumptions.
Yes, Surprise is his real given name. Dr. Kirby Surprise received his Doctorate in Counseling Psychology in 2007 from the Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco and his Masters in advanced psychodynamic and transpersonal studies from John F. Kennedy University. He is a professional communicator, having given workshops and lectures on his subject, and conducts psycho educational groups on a wide variety of subjects for the state of California. His interest in Synchronicity stemmed from experiencing frequent and surprising SE, and needing a working understanding of the phenomena. The model of SE he teaches was a response by SE themselves to his asking “How does synchronicity work?”
