Soon after this work was done, I discovered
that the area where the Montauk Project existed was located on sacred
Native American ground which had been confiscated from the Natives after
they had been declared extinct as a race and had suffered attempted
genocide via blankets infected with small pox. Still, the Montauk tribe
existed, but the state of New York declared them extinct anyway. To this
day, professional attorneys consider it to be one of the gravest legal
injustices ever committed against a people in our nation. Additionally, I
discovered pictures of pyramids that once stood on this ground and that
these Montauk Natives, known as Montaukettes, were the royal tribe of Long
Island and their ruling family were known as Phaoraohs.
In order to understand and explain all these various connections, I had to write a third book with Preston Nichols and entitled it Pyramids of Montauk: Explorations in Consciousness. Although I have authored and edited other books, this article is not supposed to be a commercial but an introduction to myself and my work. Perhaps the greatest gift I could share with you in this regard is my own personal understanding of synchronicity.
When people consult an oracle or divination machine like the tarot or I-Ching, they are invoking synchronicity. They are looking at the moment of NOW and as they look at the cards, coins, or yarrow sticks, they are trying to connect all the pathways in their unconscious mind. In this guise, synchronicity is an oracular tool. It is your connection to the divine. We all experience it, but when we focus on it, we experience it even more and it gives yet great meaning.
The person who originally coined the word "synchronicity" was Carl Jung, the famous psychologist. Although it is not very well known, he equated synchronicity with the Tao and said, "Tao can be anything, I use another word to designate it, but it is poor enough. I call it synchronicity."
The Tao is an ancient Chinese word for the mysterious principle underlying creation, yet it cannot be confined to that definition because it is, by definition, without definition. In other words, "the Tao that can be defined is not the true Tao." More constructively, it could be defined as the phenomena that one expects to encounter when one reaches the Tao. So, when you are experiencing synchronicity, you are moving toward the Tao. I think that if you can grasp that last sentence that you can grasp anything.
Editor's Note:[Peter Moon's current efforts are dedicated to stepping up the process of synchronicity even more and this is being chronicled in a work in progress which is called Synchronicity and the Seventh Seal which is expected to be released this Autumn].
