If one adopts a tensed, or in McTaggart's terminology, an A-Theory of time, then a coherent doctrine of divine eternity calls for that one construe God, at the least because the second of production, to exist temporally, which means that divine timelessness might be effectively maintained provided that a tenseless or B-Theory of time is true. as a result in my significant other volumes The Tensed idea of Time: a serious exam and The Tenseless conception of Time: a severe exam I set for myself. the duty of two adjudicating the A- vs. B-Theory of time. within the former quantity; r learn arguments for and opposed to the A-Theory of time, and within the latter l' tum to an exam of arguments for and opposed to the B-Theory.

De mystérieux événements synchrones semblent parsemer nos vies. Tandis qu’une pensée affleure, un fait, qui renferme toujours un sens profond dont le yet est de conduire nos vies vers leur destin, se produit à l’improviste, dans un synchronisme parfait. L’objectif de ce livre est de démontrer que le phénomène de los angeles « synchronicité » est depuis longtemps étudié, en particulier par les physiciens quantiques. Ces recherches plongent leurs racines dans l’alliance sturdy et harmonieuse entre le grand psychologue analytique Carl Gustav Jung et le physicien quantique Wolfgang Pauli.

Les recherches actuelles tendent à prouver que tout semble se mouvoir de façon harmonieuse dans le monde naturel, mais que cette harmonie est parfois soudainement brisée par des événements symboliques chargés de sens qui nous rappellent que nous ne sommes pas que des êtres de matière et que le principe de l’univers se situe dans une moral sense universelle que Jung avait déjà découverte et dont il parlait sous los angeles forme de l’inconscient collectif, l’origine de toutes les synchronicités.

Un livre qui s’adresse à tous les passionnés de physique et de psychologie, à tous ceux qui sont fascinés par les phénomènes qui lient l’esprit et los angeles réalité. À ceux qui ne se contentent pas d’attribuer des phénomènes parfois incroyables au hasard et qui veulent en savoir plus, en puisant dans les connaissances de personnages scientifiques éminents. À ceux qui sont attentifs et sensibles aux interconnexions entre les différentes disciplines du savoir et qui affrontent le monde avec l’esprit d’un chercheur et d’un découvreur.
