Wow! Four Months of Blogs Already!
 
Welcome to the February 2012 edition of The Booo! Blog. The response to the January edition has been overwhelming, and I thank everyone for their comments and email. Many have asked about the location and fate of USS Escolar, but neither is known for certain. Her general location is believed to be known or, at the very least, it's an educated guess. As for the fate of the boat (submarines are usually referred to as boats, not ships) and her crew, the best explanation is that she probably hit a stationary or floating mine. While many submarines were lost in WWII, many with all hands, only Escolar and a few others remain a mystery.
 
I am currently in the process of digging deeper into the tale of Escolar but, as have others in the past, will probably hit a brick wall; a point where no further information is available. As technology advances and individuals in the private sector have searched, more wrecks have been located. And Escolar can be located; it just takes the will and the resources. Several have the former, but few the latter. With today's technology, I find it unconscionable that the government has not made more of an effort to locate Escolar and others. As time moves on and the modern world goes about its business above, we still have men and machines from a bygone era, all but forgotten and silently waiting on the ocean floor below. These crews gave their lives, and deserve better than "maybe", "possibly" and "could have..."
 
Synchronicity: Whispers Through the Screams
 
I love this definition I found floating on Google. It eschews all the hoity-toity Jungian psychology and gets to the point, although the term itself was coined by Carl Jung in the 1920s:
 
syn·chro·nic·i·ty: the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.
 
You may be thinking, "What does synchronicity have to do with the paranormal?" The answer: probably much more than is believed. Skeptics believe synchronicity is nothing more than coincidence. Most psychologists disagree with Jung and believe it to be confirmation bias, a tendency to search for or interpret new information in a way that confirms one's preconceptions and avoids information and interpretations that contradict prior beliefs*. In that sense, it is somewhat akin to apophenia, a term you will hear thrown around quite a bit in the paranormal community. The average person on the street doesn't know what it is, but realizes there's much more to it than either can sufficiently explain. Most of us have had related events happen inexplicably, some of us repeatedly. The latter is what interests me; is someone trying to tell us something? To guide or gently push us in one direction as opposed to the other?
 
Jung's explanation would sound more natural coming from a New Age guru or theoretical physicist than a psychologist, involving terms such as "indestructible energy" and "space/time continuum", among others. The term "paranormal" is never used, but he really was on the fringe with this, and probably very ahead of his time. Many paranormal investigators are beginning to believe the answer to much of legitimate paranormal activity will be found in theoretical/quantum physics. I mentioned this on my site, but it bears repeating: there is nothing abnormal about the paranormal, we just don't yet understand it.
 
My interest in synchronicity started in earnest with my interest in USS Escolar. I found that whenever I actively worked on research, synchronous events would occur. As would anyone else, I first shrugged them off and did chalk it up to coincidence. However, they soon became too pronounced to ignore. The last (but not the most obvious) was very recently, while working on the January 2012 edition of The Booo! Blog. I hadn't thought of Escolar in any great detail in quite a while. The day after I wrote the blog and before it was published, I received an email from the brother of one of crew members, a very nice and knowledgeable gentleman I hadn't heard from in several years. Alone, I would have brushed it off to coincidence, although I wish I'd have such luck with odds when playing Mega Millions or Powerball! In their cumulative entirety? Is it coincidence or confirmation bias? No. That's why I've pursued the trail of Escolar, and will continue to do so until I slam headfirst into that brick wall.
 
So, what's going on? Most of the time, any attempt to analyze the phenomenon will only result in frustration and headaches, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try. For most of us, day-to-day life is so crazy and we're preoccupied with whatever daily crisis is happening at that moment. Crying kids, shouting bosses, thumping bass from the car next to you at the traffic light, calls from the cable company with a friendly reminder that last month's payment was never received (oblivious to the reality that food is more important than the Food Network) and blaring TV commercials asking us to ponder what we want from our toilet paper all compete for our attention. Stop! Someone is trying to tell you something. Just as a local radio station can overpower a distant one, such is the case with faint messages and guidance from the other side. Can you still hear that distant station? Yes. You just have to listen for whispers through the screams.

This is really interesting stuff and I've been glued to your site for the past 45 minutes. I've often had unexplained things happen, but don't understand it. I agree with you about the sub, the Navy should do more to find these wrecks.

I believe there are forces trying to guide us in directions if we pay attention. I especially liked your radio station camparison-that's the best way to understand it. You have a wonderful website.

Synchronicity happens to most people, but I think some just think it's coincidence. It's not, but it will make you crazy if you try to read too much into it. I think even though it's meaningful, we just don't have the smarts to understand what it's trying to tell us, at least in a timely manner. I absolutely love your website, it's so very interesting.

I'll be paying more attention. There's gotta be more to it than chance. Happens to me all the time. I'll think of a song, turn on the radio, and that song will be playing. Not a popular song, one you rarely hear. Maybe there's a message I should get out of the song?

Anthony- I wanted to drop you a note to say how impressed I am with your website. The writing is amazing and the content first-rate. I can see your site appealing even to people not necessarily that interested in the paranormal world. Keep up the great work! -Jim
