As Wolfgang Pauli explained to Max Born, (4) Einstein's point of departure is realistic rather than deterministic--but people, Born included, would not listen.
However, Jung elaborated the concept of synchronicity further in the context of the fruitful exchange with physicist and Nobel physics laureate Wolfgang Pauli at the end of the 1940s and during the 1950s (Lindorff, 2004).
To paraphrase what Wolfgang Pauli said about Paul Dirac, "There is no God, and Sean Carroll is his prophet."
Among his topics are what we mean by personal selves, brain bases of self, little emotions, empathy and utterance, myth and proto-myth, the doubleness of Shakespeare, impediments to proto-conversation through blindness and deafness, and automorphosis: the dreams of Wolfgang Pauli.

One such elementary particle is the neutrino, the existence of which was first theorized by Wolfgang Pauli, a physicist in the 1920s.
The Austrian-Swiss physicist Wolfgang Pauli called it"probably the most beautiful of all existing theories." Many physicists (including Einstein himself) believed it not so much because of the experimental tests but because of what they perceived as its elegance and simplicity.
Notably, she also dives into the debate between physicist Wolfgang Pauli and psychiatrist Carl Jung about how science/matter and psyche/spirit/synchronicity emerge from a unified psychophysical realm.
Famed physicist Wolfgang Pauli dreamed these particles up in 1930, in a letter to a few colleagues addressed "Dear Radioactive Ladies and Gentlemen." The cloud chambers and other detectors of the day revealed a puzzling and variable shortage of energy in a process known as beta decay.
In 1930 Wolfgang Pauli proposed the particle known as the neutrino; however he thought it would never be detected.
