Well put. Once we understand how the word *works*, then it is awful power in the hands of the person who knows it and it is very likely the power be used for selfish use - taking advantage of the knowledge for personal gains -- either now or hereafter.

While we may get bits and pieces of the operation of nature, an intelligent person can pick them up and understand how to act so that actions generate welfare and fairness to everyone.

As you stated, since we do not see the whole picture, our understanding and conclusions based on a piece of the puzzle is bound to be wrong for most of the time.

Dear Mic,

As I said, I am not a scientist. I see the world from the point of
view of my theosophical studies, and as far as I understand, given
the fuzziness of language which makes it difficult to pin these
things down, all manifestatin is governed by law. Everything is part
of a universal cause and effect pattern. If this is true, as I think
it is, there is no such thing as coincidence. Things only look random
to us because we can't see the whole pattern. We can't even remember
what we did in past lives which set the stage for this lifetime.
However, I suspect that there may be some realm in which this
synchronicity theory fits with what I describe. Perhaps it relates
specifically to what we can see, remember and know. So many of the
examples you have mentioned remind me of what I have learned about
more "primitive" (terrible word, maybe I mean pre-technological? or
pre-Christian?) cultures, such as that of the Native Americans, who
took everything in their environment as a sign or symbol to instruct
them as to living their lives. Every manifestation of nature they
took to represent some message to them. Does this relate? Is there
some way to find an interface between cosmic cause and effect and
material science? With synchronicity representing some aspect of the

Best wishes,
