Abstract:

"Every now and then, we all have experiences that seem too meaningful to be chance but that we can't explain in any normal way. Now, philosopher Sharon Hewitt Rawlette tackles some of the hardest questions surrounding such coincidences, also known as "synchronicities." For instance, how can we calculate whether a synchronicity is too improbable to be just chance? What hard evidence is there that coincidences convey genuine messages from God or our deceased loved ones? Do ordinary people have the psychic ability to create coincidences, for themselves or others? Why do coincidences sometimes harm or deceive? Rawlette brings together an immense body of research (drawn from science, statistics, near-death experiences, deathbed visions, and other extraordinary human experiences) that clearly points to a meaningful reality beyond the bounds of our current understanding and at the same time demonstrates both the promise and peril of interpreting synchronicities as signs from above"--Amazon.com.
