LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK LAUNCH: Synchronicity: The Art of Coincidence, Choice, and Unlocking Your Mind with Kirby Surprise Saturday, May 12, 2012 || 7pm Book Passage-Corte Madera|| 51 Tamal Vista Dr. Corte Madera || www.bookpassage.com Wondering how to make things happen? Kirby Surprise has written a fascinating new book, Synchronicity: The Art of Coincidence, Choice, and Unlocking Your Mind, about the way individuals perceive reality and the science behind it. He writes about meaningful synchronistic experiences and how an individual can actually influence their happening. The experience of meaningful coincidences is universal. They are reported by people of every culture, every belief system, and every time period. Synchronicity examines the evidence for the human influence on the meaningfulness of events, and the way the modern computational model of the mind predicts how we create meaning.
