John Townley on "Cause and Coincidence"

John Townley on "Cause and Coincidence"

A discussion of Paul Kammerer's "Seriality", which is similar to Jung's "Synchronicity" (meaningful 'coincidence'), except that Seriality is not acausal.

From the Wiki: He postulated that all events are connected by waves of Seriality. These forces would cause what we would perceive as just the peaks, or groupings and coincidences. Kammerer was known to, for example, make notes in public parks of what numbers of people were passing by, how many carried umbrellas, etc. In reviewing the book, Albert Einstein called the idea of Seriality "Interesting, and by no means absurd."
