uniqueness of (C.G.) Jung's perception concerning the nature of synchronicity
has in a way served to blind us to the simple reality of his theory.
If I am present to a moment of synchronicity, a meaningful coincidence
in which inner and outer worlds correspond, I am then contained in
something different from the everyday world of consciousness. Henry
Corbin puts us on to the situation in greater detail:
archetypal or imaginal] bodies or entities are not in any
world, nor in their world, in the same manner as a
material body is in its place or may be contained in another
body. On the
contrary, their world is in them...Of course, all
these entities subsist independently of each other. Nonetheless,
all exist simultaneously and each is contained in the other." C.
