Sky Nelson-Isaacs – The Physics of Synchronicity

Aired Thursday, 6 June 2019, 7:00 PM ET

Synchronicity or meaningful coincidence has been something philosophers and scientists have wondered about for decades. Most of us have experienced it at least once. For example, you are on a much-anticipated road trip and your vehicle breaks down. As you’re waiting by the side of the road a mechanic who specializes in your make of car drives up and lends a hand. Is this just chance? Can two events be related in a meaningful way without one causing the other? If so, what does this tell us about the cosmos? More to the point, is it possible that you can learn to make choices that actively encourage synchronicity in your life?
