Bizarre Trickster Synchro: the BBC and the Death of Robin Williams




Frequently, bizarre trickster synchronicities occur during mass events or stories that are covered globally by the media. One such synchronicity came to light today concerning the death of Robin Williams. Thanks to CF, who first found this synchro on Facebook and alerted us to it. The you tube video of Joseph Campbell talking about the trickster seems appropriate.

According to the Mirror (U.K.), minutes before William’s death was announced, the BBC ran an episode of the cartoon Family Guy about Robin Williams that featured a failed suicide attempt. “Viewers were shocked over the uncanny timing after watching the episode called Fatman and Robin, where Peter Griffin is cursed with the ability to turn everything he touches into Robin Williams,” said the Mirror. “During the episode Peter tries to commit suicide in a desperate attempt to stop the clones appearing…”

A spokeswoman for the BBC called it an “uncanny coincidence” and noted that episodes are scheduled two weeks ahead of time. Full story here.

Synchronicities like this always cause me to wonder about the nature of time. Perhaps there is no time and it’s only our perceptions that divide it into past, present, future.  Or maybe the scheduling of the episode was precognitive on the part of the BBC. Or maybe something else entirely is at work here.

    I have to agree that we really don’t know the real nature of time. This, among so many other syncros, points us toward this fact. I wonder whether there is anything linear about time at all. Still grieving over this.

    My daughter telling me about this earlier today, then I showed her this great new site I’d found that went with my book and bam! there is your article about the same thing!

  3. There is no time. We have time because we live on a planet that completes a full rotation on its axis in 24 hours and takes 365.25 days to journey around the sun.

    I’ve been listening to a lot of Lilou Mace interviews on YouTube in the past month and there was an interview where the person told Lilou that she found a case of someone reincarnating “backwards” (meaning living a “future” life from his current life in a person further back in history) and in another interview, someone had mentioned that we actually reincarnate into our own lives again and again, making different or similar choices based on the accumulated knowledge that we’ve learned from previous incarnations, which may be why we have “deja vu” moments. Interesting theories and great ideas for stories / novels!

    • Rob and Trish says:

      Hey Nicholas! Not familiar with Lilou Mace, but those theories are intriguing. My sense, too, is that there’s no time.

  4. I hadn’t heard this before about the BBC programme, how strange that this sort of thing happens. Precognitive? Could well be.

    it may be a lot of things, it may even have given him a glimpse to a way out?
