Quote of the Day, Oct 30, 2008
Prompted by a Tweet from @gsmith I was inspired to revisit the concept of synchronicity. The word, first coined by psychologist CG Jung, defines perfectly much of my interaction on Twitter. It reaffirms the basic concepts of Twitter as an information management system.
“The idea of synchronicity is that the conceptual relationship of minds, defined as the relationship between ideas, is intricately structured in its own logical way and gives rise to relationships which are not causal in nature. Instead, causal relationships are understood as simultaneous—that is, the cause and effect occur at the same time.”
