Karl Jung and "The Eagle has landed "

Post by ignacioosacar » 06 May 2018 23:24

Dear Forum ,

Anybody remembers the operation planning scene where Colonel Oster discusses over intelligence reports with a beared NCO inside a very badly illuminated archives room ?

He speaks about Karl Jung "syncronization" of events. Two unrelated and insignificant events, which because of an unexpected circumstance, suddenly have a paramount importance.

Where did Jung wrote about that ? Anybody knows ? Apparently the scriptwriter did. I have not read the novel. Is that dialogue in the novel ?

Any help deeply appreciated

I don't know if the reference is included in the novel, but it appears to be ahistorical for an officer during WW2 to mention it (or at least to mention it and expect someone else to know what he's talking about) -- while Jung was apparently noodling around with the idea as early as the 1920s, he only fully described it in his post-WW2 lecturers and writings: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synchronicity
