Wow, that was published in 1907? Perhaps someone celebrates a
rough centenary of something or other. Let's see what we've got.

Here's an interesting coincidence - financial crashes beginning
in October, 1907, and December, 2007.

'Panic of 1907' or '1907 Bankers' Panic'


... a financial crisis that occurred in the United States when
the New York Stock Exchange fell almost 50% from its peak the
previous year. Panic occurred, as this was during a time of
economic recession, and there were numerous runs on banks and
trust companies. The 1907 panic eventually spread throughout the
nation ... Primary causes of the run include a retraction of
market liquidity by a number of New York City banks ... The
panic was triggered by the failed attempt in October 1907 to
corner the market on stock of the United Copper Company.

This needs no discussion since we all remember it, or we're
still in it.

There is no causal connection between strange sounds in the sky
and financial crashes, is there? So now we're in the realm of
Jungian synchronicity - the acausal meaningful coincidence.

As Beitman says in his article in Edgescience_09, "Jungian
theories share in common the belief that the collective
unconscious and archetypes are major participants in coincidence
creation. Archetypes are thought to be activated (or
constellated) in high-emotion situations. They are thought to
exist in a state from which both mind and matter emerge=97the
psychoid. Jungians support their theories with ideas drawn from
mythology to quantum physics and have provided a rich soil from
which to speculate about meaningful coincidences."

In the recent spate of strange sounds, there was evidence of
archetypal thinking in the interpretation of heavenly trumpets
heralding the apocalypse. Perhaps when many people see their
material wealth disappearing, it _is_ the end of the world. When
this archetype was externalized simultaneously by a sufficient
number of people, the apocalyptic trumpet sounds were its
physical expression.

We now have evidence from the Global Consciousness Project that
shared emotions on a large enough scale can have physical
