and Its Larger Implications
The highway’s made for gamblers, better use your sense
Take what you have gathered from coincidence . . .
Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home
Jung’s concept of synchronicity represents one of the most successful efforts of the
twentieth century to create a bridge across the chasm between inner and outer, self and
world, psyche and cosmos. The concept has been widely embraced in popular culture, with
synchronicities playing no small role in the way many individuals make sense of their lives.
Powerful synchronicities tend to emerge at major threshold moments such as births, deaths,
and crises of personal transformation. In the face of the disenchanted modern world view,
the search for a ground of purpose and meaning that transcends human subjectivity has
become an urgent spiritual priority.
For many today, synchronicities are directly relevant to this search. Such inexplicably
precise coincidences can be experienced as numinously transformative, as provocative signs
that such deeper structures of meaning and purpose do exist. They seem to suggest that
our individual lives and even the cosmos itself may be patterned by archetypal principles
that reflect the subtle workings of a pervasive intelligence.
Richard Tarnas is a professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San
Francisco, where he founded the graduate program in Philosophy, Cosmology, and
Consciousness. He also lectures on archetypal studies and depth psychology at Pacifica
Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, and is on the Board of Governors of the C. G. Jung
Institute of San Francisco. He is the author of The Passion of the Western Mind, a history
of the Western world view widely used as a text in universities, and Cosmos and Psyche:

Spring Film Series: Creativity in Focus
Wednesday, April 22 | 7 pm | FREE
88 min | 2013 | USA
Directed by Doug Pray
Levitated Mass is the story of a rock star; the artist behind the sensation; a $10 million, 22-city tour; and the international media storm that ensued—but not in the way you might expect. Prominently displayed outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, renowned and reclusive land artist Michael Heizer’s “Levitated Mass” gained worldwide recognition during its installation in 2012. The film takes on Heizer’s passion for this piece and masterfully interweaves this influential artist’s biography with the backstory of the art (originally conceptualized in 1968), the dreams of a major museum, and the uniting of a city, examining the perennial question: “What is art?”
