Beyond Jungian Synchronicity



A postscript token.
A Fibonacci symbol.
In my dreams again.
Three women assigned numbers.
And my wife is Number 12.

12, 13, 14.
Assigned to the three women.
Fibonacci’s sign.
These three numbers, when added.
Count as Number 39.

3+9 is 12.
Numerological sign.
12 is 1+2.
Symbolically — it’s 3.
Those three women in my dream.

A persistent sign.
Appearing in three stages.
Showing Trinity.
The feminine sign rising.
The dreamer as masculine.

To me appearing.
Carl Jung’s 3+1 pattern.
The Quaternity.
As a dream permutation.
In consecutive stages.

Pointing to something.
Reality’s quadrant mode.
Four reflect the Form.
Fundamental to all Being.
A theory of the All.

Einstein said it best.
“Coincidence is God’s Way.
[Don’t figure Him out!]
Of staying anonymous.”
Beyond synchronicity.

About this poem

Fibonacci, a thirteenth century Italian mathematician, Albert Einstein, an Austrian theoretical physicist, and Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss analytical psychologist have had one goal in common. All three men, like others before them, and others who have come after them, including scientists, philosophers, theologians, metaphysicians, and many other great minds of so many disciplines, have battled with their wits to figure out the Almighty. None have succeeded. The Almighty remains hidden from all of man’s perceptions and rumination, beyond the profundity of synchronicity itself. This insight, this discernment, has come to me in three consecutive stages, from three consecutive nights of dreaming, resulting in the composition of three interrelated poems, namely: “ESOTERICA,” “Alchemical Fires of the Mind,” and “Fibonacci Dreamscape.” This fourth “dream” poem, “Beyond Jungian Synchronicity,” constitutes a quaternity of the four dreams, offered in seven Tanka stanzas.
