The Engineering of Coincidence: a scientific explanation of magic by Robert Ramsay
“Magic is the engineering of coincidence”
Fireballs. Wands. Turning people into frogs. Everyone knows that wizards like Harry Potter are fictional. But is there real magic in the world?
The psychiatrist Carl Jung was obsessed with coincidences that seemed too incredible to be truly coincidental. He was convinced that they revealed a deeper level of reality, and called this revelation ‘synchronicity’.
Years of rigorous scientific experiments have shown that people are capable of reading each other’s minds, influencing random number generators, and even seeing into the future.
Millions of self-help books are sold every year on the premise that you can change your life by the power of thought.
These forms of magic all have something in common: no-one knows why they work. The purpose of this book is to explain why they work, taking some of our most successful scientific theories, then weaving them together into a new way of looking at the world.
A world where you can engineer coincidence.
A world where you can do magic.

Robert Ramsay was born in 1964 and is still wondering about that. Wizard, lyricist, and some sort of musician, he has been a member of ‘Men Are Dead', ‘Tinyfish', and ‘Tits Out For Captain Power', and is now a solo artist and Consulting Lyricist to the Gentry.
His album ‘Confound and Disturb' is available on Bad Elephant Music, and does what it says on the tin.
In parallel to this, he has spent thirty years researching the true nature of reality, publishing his findings as ‘The Engineering of Coincidence'.
He is @mothtwiceborn on Twitter, for reasons which are, as Douglas Adams would say, unlikely to become clear again at the moment.
