EP213, Bethany Butzer: Invisible to Visible

You Can Also LISTEN HERE to This Episode!

Coincidences alert us to the mysterious hiding in plain sight. Professor Bethany Butzer tells us that synchronicities reveal the all-pervasive consciousness.  

In this episode, our guest describes how synchronicities might serve as evidence that consciousness is more fundamental in our universe than space, time, and matter. They allow us, perhaps, to bridge the gap between the physical and the metaphysical, by momentarily experience an underlying domain of reality in which mind and matter are one.

CCBB Episode 206, David Hench: A Poker Player Rolls the Synchronicity Dice

Poker players create coincidences. They play with random chance. Some can tilt the card shuffle in their direction while carefully playing by the rules. David Hench has survived the odds and now tells us about his coincidence-filled life of chance, statistics and poker cards. View on YouTube HERE, or listen on AnchorFM HERE.

We would love to hear from you as well! If you have a coincidence story, please leave it in the comments below, and we will respond.

In this episode, we discuss with professional poker player and author David Hench his views on the significance of synchronicity and whether the universe is what it appears to be. David has always been intrigued by both sports statistics and palindromes, and became a trivia champion, forever keeping an eye on palindromes in letters or numbers. So imagine his surprise when, at age 50, he ordered his birth certificate and saw that he had been delivered into this world by a “Dr. Staats,” and that, beyond that uncanny coincidence, the certificate was littered with palindromes. Both the doctor’s first name (Bob) and last name (Staats) were palindromes, as was his time of birth: 6:06 PM. So David is a statictics (a.k.a.’stats’) fanatic, delivered into the world by Dr. Staats (both homonym for “stats’ and a palindrome). An auspicious debut into a life filled with synchronicities.
