Fibonacci time patterns may predict future synchronistic events (SEs) by forecasting nonlinear dynamical interactions. This study examined if there were differences between observed distributions of Fibonacci time patterns matching SEs compared to expected distributions based on chance. An online survey link was e-mailed to a random sample of Jungian analysts drawn from membership lists of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP). Two experiments tested the hypothesis that… 


The Fibonacci Life-Chart Method (FLCM) as a foundation for Carl Jung's theory of synchronicity.
The author draws on a new method, designated the fibonacci Life-Chart Method (FLCM), which categorizes phase transitions and Phi fractal scaling in human development based on the occurrence of Fibonacci numbers in biological cell division and self-organizing systems, and offers an orientation towards psychological experience that may have relevance to Jung's theory of synchronicity.
Chronos in synchronicity: manifestations of the psychoid reality.
It is argued that synchronicity demonstrates by analogy the nature of the psychoid archetype, as it developed via his communication with Pauli, in light of the above presented 'time theory'.
Fibonacci Harmonics: A New Mathematical Model of Synchronicity
The review indicates that both models appear capable of simulating nonlinear and fractal dynamics and hybrid approaches that combine both models are feasible and necessary for projects that aim to experimentally address synchronicity.
Research on synchronicity: status and prospects
This chapter provides an overview of existing research on the concept of synchronicity, from which some promising directions for research are then highlighted under various headings: conceptual,
Weird Coincidences Commonly Occur
The coincidence experience permeates all domains of life. We speak of the coincidental nature of falling in love, the experience of having a job “fall into one’s lap,” and we read about coincidences
Feigenbaum Graphs: A Complex Network Perspective of Chaos
This work provides a universal analytical description of this classic scenario in terms of the horizontal visibility graphs associated with the dynamics within the attractors, that it calls Feigenbaum graphs, independent of map nonlinearity or other particulars, and shows that the network entropy mimics the Lyapunov exponent of the map independently of its sign.
Reconstructing the dates of personal events: Gender differences in accuracy
One commonly held stereotype is that females are more concerned with, and attentive to, dates than are males. One possible implication of this idea is that females have a more welldeveloped temporal
Broadband Criticality of Human Brain Network Synchronization
It is suggested that human brain functional systems exist in an endogenous state of dynamical criticality, characterized by a greater than random probability of both prolonged periods of phase-locking and occurrence of large rapid changes in the state of global synchronization, analogous to the neuronal “avalanches” previously described in cellular systems.
Synchronicity in the therapeutic setting: A survey of practitioners
Aims In this study, we intended to explore whether there are any differences between counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists in the reporting and interpretation of synchronicity experiences
The Paranormal is (Still) Normal: The Sociological Implications of a Survey of Paranormal Experiences in Great Britain
Historically, there has been limited sociological interest in the paranormal and no systematic study of reported paranormal experiences. There are also few medium-to-large-scale survey results with
