504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 267-276) and 
520    "In Synchronicity Paul Halpern tells the little-known 
       story of the unlikely friendship between the Nobel-prize-
       winning quantum physicist Wolfgang Pauli and the father of
       psychoanalysis, Carl Jung. In the 1930s, Pauli and Jung 
       began collaborating on a unified theory of quantum and the
       mind, the result of which was Jung's synchronicity 
       principle-the idea that events connected by meaning need 
       not be explained by causality. Pauli's work on 
       entanglement theory, which allowed for instantaneous cause
       and effect relationships, was particularly appealing to 
       Jung, as it seemed to give weight to his controversial 
       theory of a collective unconscious. Casting their 
       relationship within a larger intellectual history of 
       entanglement theory, Halpern poses a question that has 
       mystified physicists and philosophers alike since the 
       times of Aristotle: Is the speed of light finite, as 
       Einstein posited, or is it, as Pauli and the proponents of
       entanglement theory asserted, variable across time and 
       dimensions? As Halpern works his way through the history 
       of the physics of cause and effect, he shows that this 
       centuries-old debate is not only relevant at the smallest 
       scales of particle physics but also at the largest scales 
       of the cosmos itself"--|cProvided by publisher.
