Gray Cloud said: You cannot have acausal. This has been known and understood by philosophers from every continent for thousands of years. Just because some New Age nit-wit decides he has to come up with something different to shift product it doesn't make it so.
Never say “never.”
Here are some additional articles by more “new age nitwits” who describe the difference between causal and acausal “space-time”
Synchronicity and Acausal Connectednesshttp://www.geoman.com/jim/synchronicity.html
Before I launch into a more detailed discussion of these I should say something about my own functional definition of "meaning". It seems to me that what is really implicit in both Jung's definition of the archetype and in the popular intuitive definition of synchronicity is pattern recognition, our ability to distinguish figure from ground. To discern pattern is to distinguish the meaningful from the meaningless. The Jungian archetype is essentially a pattern which we are able to infer from a collection of images, words and feelings. In the case of the archetype these patterns seem to be transpersonal, that is they transcend and pervade individual human experience. So by this definition, what is common to all synchronicity experiences is that they involve pattern recognition. And the existence of the patterns in question can not be explained by any normal mechanism. Thus they stand out from the background of our normal expectations about the behavior of material reality. I believe that it is this violation of our rational expectations about the relationship between matter and consciousness which is in and of itself meaningful.
More exactly, the cosmos itself can be described or explained or represented by acausal and causal space-time. Causal space-time is 4-dimensional: there are 3 spatial dimensions (at right angles to each other) and 1 time dimension, this time dimension being linear and unidirectional. That is, causal time 'flows' in one direction only from past to present to future. Causal time is defined by this one-way flow and by the moments which are used to mark the changes in this flow. [In effect, causal space-time is the 'everyday' physical world we live in and can perceive by our physical senses. It is the world described by the laws of Physics.] Acausal space-time has n spatial dimensions [where n is at present undefined but is greater than 3 and less than infinity] and acausal time dimensions. The spatial dimensions of acausal space are not at right angles to each other. Further, acausal time is not unidirectional - it can flow in any direction - and it is not linear: that is, it has more than one component. In effect, acausal time (unlike causal time) has more than one time-dimension.
The acausal and the causal can be considered as two different 'universes'. The causal universe contains physical matter - that is, varying types of physical energy. We are familiar with the various forms of this physical matter - stars, planets, the rocks and elements forming the planets. The acausal universe likewise contains matter - acausal matter or energy. This acausal energy and its changes in acausal space-time can be described by a new science which uses the non-spatial geometry of the acausal and a representation of acausal time.
Synchronicity: Acausal Connection or Causality in Disguise?http://brindedcow.umd.edu/308x/synchronicity.html
Why does Jung rule out causal explanations for psi-phenomena? The answer tells us something about his understanding of cause and effect relationships. According to Rhine, his experiments showed that psi effects are not dependent on time or on distance. Furthermore, Rhine used Faraday cages, which shield the subject from electromagnetic radiation, and the effects persisted. (For the moment, we will take Rhine's results as given. Whether they would stand up to careful scrutiny is harder to say.) But causality, on Jung's view, is essentially a spatio-temporal affair that operates by the transfer of energy over time from one place to another.
The Philosophical Concept of Synchronicity http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/cienc ... city03.htm
Carl Gustav Jung coined the word to describe what he called "temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events."
Jung variously described synchronicity as an "'acausal connecting principle'" (i.e., a pattern of connection that cannot be explained by conventional, efficient causality), "meaningful coincidence" and "acausal parallelism". Jung introduced the concept in his 1952 paper "Synchronicity — An Acausal Connecting Principle", though he had been considering the concept for almost thirty years.
It was a principle that Jung felt gave conclusive evidence for his concepts of archetypes and the collective unconscious , in that it was descriptive of a governing dynamic that underlay the whole of human
experience and history — social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual.[/quote]
