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' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panic_of_1907 ... 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. and Financial crash starting in 2007 National Bureau of Economic Research http://www.nber.org/dec2008.html 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 effects. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
