Okay on to the meat of the book. The first half is thought provoking and his arguments are well made. He's well read and draws on many esoteric and scientific sources, but I think he may get into the same trap that physicists have when they perform the double blind experiment. He and they both think entanglement is separate from free will. In the double blind experiment the out come is based on choices of the experimenter. Mr Garrison thinks the universe is trying to tell him something, often humorously, like the pooka in the play Harvey "And how are you today, Mr Wilson?" altering reality and written text to provide him with information nuggets. But what if Mr Garrison's premonitions and external events are inseparable? Like the glove incident when he found a pair exactly when he was about to purchase some? Or the rusty bumper incident, which weirdly I was thinking about on my lunch break and when I thought of rusty bumper argument and I looked up and saw a rusty bumper at that exact second. Yes something strange is going on in the Universe and if we are living in a simulation as some scientist now believe then synchronicity may be some coding fragments that clump together like repetitive house types in LA Noir.
What really excites me about this book is how the author describes how he is 'compelled' to do certain things, because I also have the same compulsions.
For some time now I have had the strange notion that we are living in a Simulation, so the following decoding hits the mark for me.
In the book, Aaron Garrison finds playing cards in random places, the first one he found was the 10 of Clubs, the second was also the 10 of clubs.
I immediately saw that this was Binary Code...1010 in Binary equals 10 in Decimal.
I had to go out to work, and when stuck in traffic my compulsion made me convert the other playing cards into Binary....but I made a few mistakes. The first was by omitting the 4 zeros at the beginning of each Byte, so 1010 in binary should really be 00001010 (I was on a fools' errand anyway and rushed for time).The second was not putting the cards in order as Aaron found them, only a small mistake, I transposed an Ace with a Three (I was looking at the images rather than the text because my driving glasses blur the written word).
Anyway, I arrived at this Binary number....10101010011010010001000100111111. The last four digits of this number were taken from a Tarot card. I left the last card he found out (Binary codes in groups of eight).
The result that came back was 'ai ?'....it put a smile on my face.
