'Amplifying C.G. Jung's concept of synchronicity--his term for a "meaningful coincidence" or parallel occurrence of psychic and physical events--Cook Loy presents a clear-eyed investigation into the paranormal aspects of the psyche. She shows how the mind can encompass logic and reason, as well as dreams, clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition, and other parapsychological phenomena. In making her case, she deftly weaves together ideas from the ancient Hermetists[sic], the I Ching, Jungian psychology, philosopher Alfred North Whitehead, anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss, religious scholar Huston Smith, and quantum physicist David Bohm, to name a few.'
