Einstein, Jung and The Theory of Everything
Library X
December 07, 2018
This book describes a “theory of everything” which is founded explicitly and directly on Einstein‘s thinking. The relevant two key pillars of his thinking are, firstly, his insight that all time is relative and, secondly, a view of the world which Carl Jung called the collective unconscious. By combining these two ideas, this book explains the existence of parallel universes among each of us at a sub-conscious level. This book also indicates that man has free will, while at the same time acknowledging that planetary motion is predetermined, as predicted by Einstein. Finally, the book acknowledges that, at the atomic and sub-atomic level, activity is not so pre-determined. Why does this matter to you? As described in chapter 5, once we realise the importance of the collective unconscious, we have the possibility of tapping in to universal wisdom. And when we do this, we may experience the joy of life in a way which reflects a deeper order of things and not a series of random events. This is what it means to be truly lucky.
