actually some kind of learning process that’s going on as a result of ECCO’s positively or negatively reinforcing certain behaviors so that humanity’s evolution is guided in certain directions?
JOHN: I had the illusion that humanity is making progress ill certain directions, yes.
DJB: Do you feel that when synchronicity happens, that it’s actually being arranged either by ECCO or by us?
JOHN: The only place that Jung defined synchronicity at all well was in the introduction to the I Ching, and he talks about controlling coincidences. He fell into the same trap I did. Synchronicity doesn’t mean anything; it’s an explanatory principle.
