Before I post this, I recommend you grab a snack, as usual, I wrote too much. :(
This is where I'm at on sychromysticism. All the synchs in movies, music, art, and real life are connected. This has been proved to me over and over again in this forum, on the blogs, in the news, and in my own real life in the physical world. But there is something more to it, than just "seeing" the synchs---- could it be that we're supposed to "tell" and "show" other people? I personally DON'T think so.
Other people, unless they are in our hogwarts school of synchromystics, literally don't understand, and don't appreciate all the hard work and studying involved === that we must do I should say=== and 9 times out of 10 dismiss our findings as "COINSCIDENCE"...
This topic, in relation to regular mystery schools, was on my mind today. I was pondering all the reasons for secrecy in mystery schools, that the information could be dangerous (to self or others), that having wide acceptance of the information would sap it's mystery and therefore power (take away the power of ritual in mystery school which aid the mind in it's focusing on the NOW of the ritual), or that simply the ultimate secrets of these schools would be hardly mindblowing to the average person if they had not yet taken the initiatory steps involved in preparing themselves for that information/the grail/enlightenment.
Imagine someone walking up to you a few years ago and saying that in (a movie I watched recently, to give a current example of popular synchs) Short Circuit
, the robot "Johnny 5" is referred to as a "pile of tin
," while he entrains with a rainbow
sticker! Now that means nothing to the average person, but considering the current synch research into the Jupiter/tin symbol which looks like a 42, and 42 being the degrees of light refraction which creates a rainbow, it makes perfect sense that Johnny 5 would be connected to both symbols at the same time. This is interesting to any one of us who is familiar with the popular synchromystic topics, but to the average person it's nowhere near as exciting.
Now imagine that instead of a Jupiter-Tin-42 synch, I had instead told you the secret of life, or the secret of the holy grail, or the ultimate answer to everything in the universe (which happens to be 42
in the Hitchhikers Guide
:), you would feel the same way about it. You wouldn't have the necessary foundation to understand what you had just been given. This ultimate information (whatever it may be) is probably quite un-exciting to the un-initiated. Heck, you could probably put it on a bumper sticker and not enlighten a single tailgater. But given the right context - it becomes the most illuminating and life changing information in the world. (I think the potential exists for every moment to have this affect, and I often say "when the student is ready, the master appears" when I have a moment like this - it shows that I was ready to recognize something that I might have ignored in the past)
So, the way I currently see it is that the journey is an important part of the illumination process, and because it is this way, you could not possibly hope to convert a single person to synchromysticism until they take it upon themselves to delve into it and start to see synchs in their own lives; especially synchs which have personal importance to them (helping aid in personal enlightenment).
I often think about trying to get my cousin into it, though I know if I did I would have to start at the beginning and make him watch Jakes old stargate videos like some sort of synchro-school homework. :D
People seem to somehow find their way to secret or open societies as if it were their destiny, and I guess we came into it on our own (for the most part I assume) and should openly welcome other newcommers, but refrain from trying to get people to see the world as we do.
Another thing is that synchromysticism was always here (obviously) though it lacked a term (which is also used by other people for slightly different meanings), and now that we have the word for it, we can start to think about and express these ideas which were always a little out of reach. It does seem to be a more holistic view of the puzzle pieces, and because it's not focused specifically on any one area (conspiracy, religion, prophecy, kabbalah, astrology, comparative mythology, etc) we can enjoy the best of all worlds, and prove a much larger picture. Kind of how biology and geology and chemistry were all separated in school which gives a small in-the-box view of the world, synchro research brings the seemingly separate areas together again.
So, anyways, I'm trying to decide if I should just delete this rant... hmm skimming through the original post again.. I see that the you mention manifesting our own reality. Reality is changed by perception. In the story of Rashamon, several people all tell a different version of the same story. They all lived through the same event, though none of their stories are identical. "Like A Few Shots To Shaman" shows at his blog, a persons view is tinted by the glasses they're wearing. (Ever watch a movie and feel like it has changed? It hasn't, but you have) Because Every-Thing is connected to everything, and All is in All as Jake might say, you could potentially see
any version of "reality" which you wanted - and your perception causes a specific version to "manifest" before you. "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child..." or "When I was a synchromystic, I saw as a synchromystic, I heard as a synchromystic, I thought as a synchromystic..." So does that mean nothing has changed besides our perception? "Yes and no" might be the technical answer. The observer has been shown to affect his reality, not just in perception of it, but by through actual creation (affecting the double-slit experiment, the activity of sub-atomic particles, and so on). So by changing your perception, you may unknowingly be causing a new reality to be created: you see what you expect to see because you expect to see it, and because you expect to see it
, it is created for you. A feedback loop. And because synchromysticism leaves nothing out of it's view of reality, it could be said to be the (currently) most complete way to experience and create "reality."
Wow, what a load of B.S. (belief system and bull shit), but hey, I'm still only human (to quote the Matrix). Remind me not to rant when I'm hungry and tired :D
