The results jun shown in Table III, though I have confined myself here to the maximal figures that clearly exceed the median. Even more remarkable is the fact that time is not in principle a prohibiting factor either; that is to say, the scanning of a series of cards to be turned up in the future produces a score that exceeds chance probability.

I shall come back to this peculiar distribution with the help of a special graph Fig. It was an age of large views, which did not cry halt and think that the limits of nature had been reached just where the scientific road-builders had come to a temporary stop. To mention but one example out of many, I noted the following on April 1, The dreamer had gone to bed late and not slept until about one o’clock.


Here, for want of a demonstrable cause, we are all too likely to fall into the temptation of positing a transcendental one. The mean proportional value of all moon aspects amounts to 1.

I had heard similar stories from other people. The central theory of conencting relies on an unfortunate combination of flawed research and misapplied statistics.

The descriptive sciences, and connexting all biology in the widest sense, are familiar with these “unique” specimens, and in their case only one example of an organism, no matter how unbelievable it may be, is needed to establish its existence.

Are these the whimsicalities of chance, or the suggestive effects of the name, as Stekel seems to suggest, or are they “meaningful coincidences”? Descwhich are supposed to be characteristic of the personality, came up twelve times with a frequency of A fascinating, but unscientific, examination of affective coincidences.

The total result shows that another chance arrangement of the marriages can easily produce a result that deviates from the earlier total, but still does not quite prevent the classical conjunctions from turning up.

For the present, at any rate, we have insufficient grounds for believing that the astrological results are more than mere chance, or that statistics involving large numbers yield a statistically significant result. It is in this way that I encourage any Jung fan, or “mystically” absent of any negative connotation inclined individual to take part in this brief, intriguing read. Nevertheless, it must be remembered that with Rhine the first series of experiments generally produced the best results, which then quickly fell off.

Burt, which were conducted with positive results over a distance of miles. On the way from this consultation with the medical report in his pocket my patient collapsed in the street.
