There is definitely wisdom in asking “How many syncs do you need?”, but the idea that synchronicities are just the revelation of a basic truth of oneness provokes a fountain of derisory satire in me.
How many massages do you need before you accept the truth of relaxation?
How many crop circles will it take for you to get it?
But the one designed for you, Jasun, is ‘you’ve seen a proof-of-concept demonstration of the camera and projector, how many movies do you need to watch??’
Ultimately, “How many syncs do you need?” is a way of saying “the medium is the message”, which truly is wisdom and the final answer (in the sense that it will always be right and always be relevant), but it is the beginning of wisdom.
It is the direction to look in, the mental posture to assume in order to begin really learning.
And, as a side-effect, the better to read and understand the medium’s content.
(MM later added a companion maxim which is unfortunately little-known: “the user is the content”)
In the case of my sync from last week*, the one-dimensional medium-message is: ‘You three are psychically enmeshed!” — to which I can only say ‘Duh.
Did I really need the reminder?’ — which is why I attempt to interpret the content as a kind of waking dream.
*”One of the interviews in that book was done by a friend of mine whose birthday it was on the day you posted this… I didn’t want to just say ‘Happy Birthday’ without an accompanying link or image he might like, and I settled on a painting I had recently encountered of Jesus riding a Tyrannosaur… Unbeknownst to me, our best mutual friend (a poet and composer whose band I played in, and whose albums were produced by the birthday boy) had sent him a picture of a birthday cake with an image of Jesus cradling a baby Tyrannosaur!!
… the child becomes the VEHICLE of the man??”
