In contrast to Schopenhauer’s accustomed pessimism, this utterance has an almost friendly and optimistic tone which we can hardly sympathize with today. Although nobody knows what the validity of a nativity horoscope rests on, it is just conceivable that there is a causal connection between the planetary aspects and the psycho-physiological disposition.


But it is also possible that, over and above the already established physiological effects of proton radiation, psychic effects can occur which would rob astrological statements of their chance nature and bring them within range of a causal explanation. The name “Ericipaeus” was completely unknown to her, which is not surprising as she had no knowledge of the classics.

Only if its power and accuracy prove greater than these problems can the idea truly emerge as a workable concept. Jung’s “Psychology with the Psyche” and the Behavioral Sciences. Account Options Sign in.

It’s not a long book, but it’s rather difficult to understand, at least in terms of the details. From this basis Jung explores paraphychology, astrology from an archetypal basis, the I Ching and other forms of divination, near-death experiences, and radioactive decay.

Beyond counting cards, it was later discovered that several of Rhine’s assistants were helping certain subjects to cheatthat subjects were often allowed to handle the cards, and that the original cards were often thin enough that the symbols could be seen through them when backlit.

An unexpected content which is directly or indirectly connected with some objective external event coincides with the ordinary psychic state: Actually both readings occur. Such contents are very often of ann inferior or primitive nature and thus betray their archetypal origin. It also forces a basic reconsideration of the meaning of chance, probabilitycoincidence and the singular events in our lives.

These observations give us an unexpected glimpse into a possible causal basis for astrology. The physicians of the Romantic Age would probably have talked of “sympathy” or “magnetism.

The central theory of ‘synchronicity’ relies on an unfortunate combination of flawed research and misapplied statistics.

If, so a text-book of mathematics tells us, a group of objects is deprived of every single one of its properties or characteristics, there still remains, at the end, its number, which seems to indicate that number is something irreducible.

Thus Schopenhauer, with true philosophical vision, opened up a field for reflection whose peculiar phenomenology he was not equipped to understand, though he outlined it more or less correctly. These are as a rule complexes whose ultimate basis is the archetype, the “instinctual pattern.
