    Excellent analysis. Looking forwards to the next part.

    “If we put this in Schopenhaurean terms there should have been a higher cause that prompted the accidental correspondences to bring about the prediction of Trump’s victory.”

    What would this higher cause have been? Would the “powers, principalities, rulers of the darkness of this world, spiritual wickedness in heavenly places” count as a “higher cause” in this regard or not?

    Dear Branko,

    Thank you for sharing this piece of work with us,

    I wanted to ask you, based on your piece,
    Do you believe there exists an legitimate, even sacred synchronicity?

    • Malić says:

      I wouldn’t use the term synchronicity to describe it.More like ‘providence’ or even ‘sympathy’ as used in Platonism. I’ll say more about this in the second part of the analysis. However, I think that predicitive dreams, which are a rather common thing, represent something much deeper than “synchronicity”. I wouldn’t go so far as to call them “sacred”, though. As in everything, one has to discern every individual event. But, in principle, what Jung describes, and the way it explains it, points in the wrong direction.

    Hey Branko,

    Have you read Dark Star Rising by Gary Lachman?

    Because the whole book is one long plagiarization of your work here without even giving you a citation.

    • Malić says:

      No, just read some articles of his. Someone already drew my attention to Lachman as an interesting author, which I’m a bit reluctant to affirm, but I think he is writing about subjects of chaos magick, pop occult, etc. from mid Nineties/early Naughties. I wouldn’t say he’s plagiarizing me.
