Are Coincidences Driving You Crazy? — with Chris Mackey

When it comes to frequent coincidences, is it psychosis or synchronistic enlightenment?


Psychologist Chris Mackey can consciously create an inner amphetamine-like state using his own brain chemistry. He used this fantastic ability to increase synchronicities that helped him solve difficult problems. Was he psychotic? No. The proof? He got things done and could turn off the hypomanic state.


Chris's story illustrates the borderland between psychosis and practical synchronicities. On this week’s Connecting with Coincidence podcast, he helps us understand the difference between Psychosis and Synchronistic Enlightenment.
