Synchronistic thinking...

by Nick Annies

What tends to happen together in time?

Synchronistic thinking, the classic way of thinking in China, is thinking in fields, so to speak. In Chinese philosophy such thinking has developed and differentiated much more than in any other civilisation; there the question is not why has this come about, or what factor caused this effect, but what likes to happen together in a meaningful way in the same moment? The Chinese always ask: "What tends to happen together in time?".
