  • The Synchronicity Key: The Hidden Intelligence Guiding the Universe and You

    Using history, astrology, and synchronicity theory as well as concepts such as fractals, spiritual geometry, quantum physics, and other new research, Wilcock shows that there is a hidden architecture within time, guiding individuals and nations through a system of enlightenment Joseph Campbell called the Hero’s Journey. Historical events occur in shockingly precise, repeating cycles of time as a result. Once we understand and identify the hidden laws governing the fates of individuals and nations through seemingly random "synchronicity", we are left with a remarkable blueprint of how best to lead our lives in this uncertain and confusing world.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think it would be great for someone who could not get to sleep.


    What was most disappointing about David Wilcock’s story?

    It was hours of meaningless clap trap, narrated by someone who spoke in a slow deep monotone voice. Nothing is really Synchronized but unconnected statements that did not add up to anything.


    Would you be willing to try another one of David Wilcock’s performances?

    I would not try another Wilcock "performance" even if the story was about me.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was just a lot of hippy, dippy and silly new age statements trying to find a philosophy. Kind of like the stuff people come up with when they have mind altering drugs and alcohol.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    One of the few things I have ever experienced that had me thinking about, farming, the nature of nitrogen, oxygen and Hydrogen and their different properties, Physics, space travel, survival, human nature, bureaucracy and future planetary travel and media while laughing out loud. Flawlessly brilliant, incredibly suspenseful while oddly comforting.

    The book, is basically about not panicking, making the best of a situation while being realistic. I remembered and learned a little High School science, while laughing at the predicaments, and seeing how one person can live even at the edge of survival.

    Amazing!

    Though he battled for seven years to marry her, Henry is disenchanted with Anne Boleyn. She has failed to give him a son and her sharp intelligence and audacious will alienate his old friends and the noble families of England. When the discarded Katherine dies in exile from the court, Anne stands starkly exposed, the focus of gossip and malice. At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down.

    Story
    If you could sum up Bring Up the Bodies in three words, what would they be?

    This was the type of experience that I had expected or hoped would be among the best audible could provide. The reading allowed me to passively become part of another world. It was a brilliant read that made me feel as though the people were all real, and that I could know their thoughts, motivations and hopes. A brilliant creation of a lost world.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Was hooked as soon as I heard his voice, with all its cunning and caution. He captured the presumed weary character of Cromwell. A pragmatic, devious, yet mindfully pious and thoughtful man, that was wise enough to know he was playing a deadly game in a jungle where all the animals were predators yet foolish enough to think that he alone would not be devoured in the end.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the end of the book, when Cromwell becomes introspective and thinks about the effect that a death had on himself, and knowing that even though he was wiser, more intelligent and thoughtful than his adversaries, he never the less would succumb to the awful fruition of historical forces, forces which he himself would unleash. Some of it was intentioned by the protagonist but other forces unpredictable and unknowable until revealed, until the bitter end, thereby like the others Cromwell outsmarted, becoming his own executioner.


    Any additional comments?

    Took a lot of purchases at audible to get to the one that made all the other duds worth it.
