The Fourth Dimension – SpaceTime


Sara Jacobovici, Creative Arts Therapist, has always been a friend, guide and mentor. It was her blog on Synchronicity, (Link : that is the prelude to this discussion.  She answers my questions here, with her characteristic patience. And I felt myself running short of blog space. So, over to Sara without wasting further time and words.

RS: I experience synchronicity practically every day, in small ways, such that mentioning it sounds stupid. I cannot always tell people, that I was thinking of them, when they called, as it sounds so fake. And yet, I know my truth.

SJ: As sensory beings, we receive input all the time. Each of us forms our own filtering system; how much are we open to receiving, letting in, how much are we choosing to be aware in a conscious (and conscientious) manner. I consider time as a sense. As synchronicity is related to time, the information communicated through this sense, is based on what we allow to permeate our basic five senses. The people who choose to block this information, or are not conscious of it, may respond in a negative or judgmental way to someone who is  sharing the experience of synchronicity.  I am encouraged, Reena, that you do not allow individual reactions to influence your experience, and what you know to be true.

RS: From your article, I interpret that synchronicity could mean that the cause and effect takes place in different zones, and there is an underlying rhizome that connects. What has always baffled me is that, why do we NOT get a response at times? I understand now, that no response is also a response. It is an indication that we should change direction.

SJ: We are still proving Einstein’s theory that time is relative and that time and space are not separate but exist as space-time, the Fourth Dimension. Giving credit where it’s due: Einstein did not quite finish the job of presenting his theory of relativity as, what is referred to, the Fourth Dimension. That space and time could be seen as components of a single four-dimensional space-time fabric came from Hermann Minkowski, who announced it in a 1908 colloquium with these words:

‘Henceforth, space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality’.

In this way Reena, synchronicity takes place not only in a time zone, but an area of space or place. That is why we can actually look at changing directions; the experience is not fixed in any way.

Absolutely, “no response is also a response”. As Mozart said:                  

“The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.”

RS: Time is a framework that we superimpose on reality, to make it more relevant to our life.
