Archetypal Synchronistic Resonance, Part Two: The Looking-Glass God,withBrendan Engen

Books Mentioned In This Interview

Brendan Engen, PsyD, is a clinical psychologist based in Waycross, Georgia. He is co-author with Jeffrey Mishlove of a 2007 paper, published in the Journal of Humanistic Psychology, titled “Archetypal Synchronistic Resonance: A New Theory of Paranormal Experience”.

Here he notes that, archetypal synchronistic resonance is accompanied by feelings of numinosity, or super-meaning, or might otherwise be associated with a peak experience. Brendan and Jeffrey then recount, in some detail, the series of coincidences that resulted in their development of the “archetypal synchronistic resonance” hypothesis. These synchronistic events pointed back to a resonance with the ancient Roman philosopher Seneca, and also suggested a connection with the godhead archetype.
