Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Nothing in existence is fundamentally divisible or separate. All things and events, even the observer of things and events, are part of an inseparable union. Synchronicity happens when we notice the bleed-through from one seemingly separate thing into another, or when we for a brief moment move beyond the mind's divisions of the world.
Synchromysticism explores this phenomenon - the interpenetration of all things - and seeks to increase the ability to recognize relationships, by relaxing the rigid conceptualization of the world. This inevitably leads to a more joyful and whole everyday experience, as the environment, and person experiencing that environment, become part of a conscious interactive process of Self-Realization."
-Jake Kotze

"To Sync is to mingle with the psychedelic inter-webbing of a collective thought-form lattice work that is learning for the first time how to be a fully telepathic & transcendent network sentience. Sync is the verbal & aesthetic representation of a self aware species that is slowly recombining back into a gigantic source code wave file where the word was created and the first symbol was given its meaning. Through the mystery of sync we all come closer to one another; closer to home."
-Steve Willner

"By putting all of these articles together, we get a rather comprehensive Theory of Everything; clearly this book will cause the universe to be destroyed and replaced with something even stranger."
-Jason Barrera

Format: Paperback
The Sync Book is an anthology of essays having to do with "Synchromysticism," a new method or discipline that involves using synchronicity as a guide for meditative, contemplative, and creative practices.
"Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events, that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, that are observed to occur together in a meaningful manner." - Wikipedia
"Synchromystics" are people who observe synchronicities and attempt to derive meaning from them - this often involves applying occult symbolic and numerological concepts, as symbols, signs, and numbers have long been considered by mystics to be a primary medium through which we can understand higher truths and experience the underlying unity of all things.
The term "synchromysticism," I believe was coined only a few years ago. Before that, there were writers that could be considered "synchromystic," but it never solidified into a sort of global artistic movement until it was given a name. The other two things or catalysts that helped create synchromysticism in its current form were the rise of internet blogging and the 9-11 attacks (you have to read some of the material to understand why this is.)
Each of the 26 authors who contribute to this book offer a unique perspective and a unique style to this new field of "study" (its really more like an entirely new way of interacting with the world). They are all gifted writers, and the essays run the gamut of informative, intellectual, emotional, funny, sad, beautiful - but they all have the mystical component which points to the underlying unity and intelligence that seems to express itself in the world in the most unusual of ways.
I can say with total absolute confidence that there is no other book like this.

I heard of this book while listening to Alan Abbadessa-Green's interview on Red Ice Radio. Already being interested in the anomaly that is synchronicity/synchromysticism, I immediately went to Amazon and ordered Alan's book. I was very enthralled by what these great authors had to say. I connected with some more than others, but over-all, the entire experience was positive. I'm now going to these synchro mystic's blogs to further read about what they have to say. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in enlightening their lives or whoever experiences "coincidences" so much that it completely engulfs their daily thoughts. One night, when I chose a card from my tarot deck. I got the trump card, "The Fool". A couple hours later, I read in Jake Kotze's chapter: "In order to notice that one thing-event (situation, object or symbol) has an affinity to another, often means being "loose" with our associations. In a sense, to see and understand sync we must become fools--free from the limitations, but not the benefits, of mind." Gotta love synchronicity. Good work Alan and all your contributing authors.

Format: Paperback
The Sync Book provides a discussion of life that is not mainstream though it is embedded in the stream of life.

Imagine thinking that you see everything in your world clearly, only to realize that a few elements you took for granted were actually out of focus. That is the closest I feel I will ever get to describing how this book impacted me. It took me a very long time to digest this book. I can easily see it's cultural appreciation increasing with age because it's so packed with sincerity. Most of the authors do an excellent job of breaking down their concepts of sync. They take you from earth aka planet home into their own galaxies and then deliver you back home in hopes that you craft a lens for yourself to use towards exploring your experiences in life.

My only warning would be if you are a bit unfamiliar with fundamental Western culture, especially in religion and new age beliefs - you might have to supplement this book with quick internet searches - but do not let that discourage you from picking up this book.

I would even go as far to say... if this book found a way into your life, it is not by accident. I can't tell you the mechanics of behind the conditions that lead to you coming across The Sync Book. Even more importantly you should know now that you won't find an answer to why it popped up in the book itself either. What I can tell you is that for whatever reason it popped up during the strangest period of time in my life and when I read it, I felt like it was addressing me.

So in short summary The Sync Book is a delightfully strange and intense read. Its one of my favorite books of all time. If it finds a way into your path don't ignore it. Give it a read.

Format: Paperback
First let me comment on just the aesthetic of the book itself. It has great cover design, the binding is durable, and the artwork/imagery throughout gift it with a certain dynamism and character rarely seen in most publications. As for the content, this is just a tremendous primer on the psychedelic world we inhabit. Certain testimonials/narratives/essays will likely resonate with you more than others, but whether you agree with everyone or not, that is what makes dialoguing with the book such a joy. I heard David Bohm in an interview state that people have simply lost the ability to communicate with eachother because each is trying to impose their will upon the other, instead of seeking truth and wisdom in what the other person's perspective has to offer. Thus this is good practice for expanding how you engage with the world in a general sense. You'll get many perspectives, and be exposed to all kinds of interesting concepts including ayahuasca, jungian mass unconscious, astrology, gemetria, tarot, and of course synchronicity. If you have an inkling that life was not some kind of cosmic accident, I reccomend you do some reading on sync and start understanding the hidden language of life that surrounds you, and could guide you if you so wish.
