Shankara tells us that the Upanishads, the Gita, and the scriptures establish a path to Moksha. The religious tendency is obvious enough in nearly all serious-minded Mediums. Hence the universal belief that “spiritual agencies” are at work-agents that do not coincide with the conscious psyche.

This word is related to the Sanskrit word mukti meaning “liberation”.The root word of both is muc meaning “to be free” * . This latter fact is an indication that “psyche” and “matter” are not basically incommensurable, but may perhaps be qualities of one and the same existential being.

Since I assume that our instincts (i.e., archetypes) are biological facts and not arbitrary opinions, I do not believe that synchronistic (or Psi- ) phenomena are due to any supranormal (psychic) faculties but rather that they are bound to occur under certain conditions if space, time, and causality are not axiomatic but merely statistical truths. Shankara tells us that the Upanishads, the Gita, and the scriptures establish a path to Moksha. But we had too few co-workers and too little means, so we could not go on and had to stop. The uncertainty of their relation to time and space does not necessarily depend on a supranormality of our perceptions but rather on the relativity and only partial validity of time and space categories. ), or, more frequently, with individuals characterized by a peculiar or pathological personality structure, where the threshold to the collective unconscious is habitually lowered. This word is related to the Sanskrit word mukti meaning “liberation”.The root word of both is muc meaning “to be free” * . But in the deeper layers of the psyche which we call the unconscious there are things that cast doubt on the indispensable categories of our conscious world, namely time and space.

The “miracle” does not consist in the process of perception itself but rather in the event perceived. Fair Use Notice It is of little use having any convictions about the question you ask. However, it is not always possible to determine whether a primary inner process is accompanied by an outer one or whether, conversely, a primary outer event is being reflected in a secondary inner process.
Thus, for example, psychokinesis or extrusions of ectoplasm are objective facts and not intuitions or hallucinations. I therefore think it would be advisable to consider Psi-phenomena in the first place as sua sponte facts and not as supranormal perceptions. In this respect our attitude is still characterized by a prodigious Unconsciousness. In other words, I perceive with my normal senses and the object of my perception is an objective event. But the apparently supranormal faculty consisted in their already being in, or voluntarily putting themselves into, a state corresponding to an archetypal constellation-a state of numinous possession in which synchronistic phenomena become possible and even, to some extent, probable. One might even speak of a spontaneous archetypal intervention. The cosmic Person is the body and embodiment of Ultimate Reality (called Brahman in Sanskrit). The language of religion calls these happenings “God’s will”-quite correctly in so far as this refers to the peculiar behaviour of the archetype, its spontaneity and its functional relation to the actual situation. In his commentary on the Upanishads, 8th century CE philosopher and theologian Adi Shankara speaks of Moksha. Sankara says: “The Upanishads exhaust themselves simply by determining […], Seven Paintings and Quotations of Frida Kahlo I paint flowers so they will not die. It is naturally quite out of the question that we shall ever be able to furnish a proof of the immortality of the soul. So far as we can see, the collective unconscious is identical with Nature to the extent that Nature herself, including matter, is unknown to us.

The only explanatory factor we can establish with some certainty is the almost regular, or at least very frequent, simultaneous emergence of an archetype, or rather, of an emotion corresponding to it. One of the commonest symptoms of the presence of an archetype is its connection with religious ideas and convictions. The majority of synchronistic phenomena thus occur in archetypal situations such as are connected with risks, dangers, fateful developments, etc., and they manifest themselves in the form of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and so forth.
