Traditionally it is believed that fortune telling – a way to anticipate the future. Wondering ways: weep cards or dice, brewed coffee and watching the thick, melt the wax, put lighted candles in front of the mirrors themselves guessed (it's usually women) often argue that received the unexpected results and those subsequently confirmed! Translator Tatiana from Tula was going for a year abroad. Divination revealed – would leave only a month. It does not to believe, but it really happened so we had to leave just a month. Her friend Marina, when pouring the wax the contraction, has turned Pushkin's Profile! Girls began to laugh: "come out, probably married to a nigger!" A Four years later she married a man by the name of Pushkin! Maria from St. Petersburg into one of the Epiphany wondered evenings with her friends on her spouse.

Wondered after midnight on the mirror, putting before him a glass of water and lowering the there a ring on a string. And Mary saw in the mirror the picture: it stands at the gate of a large old house, there comes a young man in military uniform and goes to her. Opens the gate in front of the girl, inviting enter Suddenly all is lost. The case that quickly sank into oblivion. Mary decided that all this she just imagined it. Several years later, she had to go to another city. One friend offered to introduce her with her boyfriend, the military. He invited them to visit. When approached the house, Mary embraced the horror – she learned rickety house of his baptismal vision!

It is possible that given the nature of Western culture are magnified several "borderline" and fragmentation of our existence, however, can not say that in Eastern culture completely rid ourselves of this fact. Feature of it is that if the Western culture to the individual is treated with great piety, in the East that is not there – the individual and the individual are the only parts of a whole, and therefore – not having a special status. Thus, the two data demonstrate a culture in practice that can bring bias emphasis on one pole of the border – its deletion or capacity. Indeed, on the one hand one can observe fragmentation of culture, the emergence of newer and new frontiers, some cultural ad infium, on the other hand – the inviolability of this grid cultural boundaries and its inclusiveness. However, to ensure that cultural life was full, had a full life and development of the individual to observe a strict balance between such a subdivision boundaries to infinity and solidification in eternity. "On the one hand, the development of the psyche depends on the principle of differentiation, and on the other hand, is determined by the society to which he belongs to the individual. Development of society – Jung believes – depends on development of individuality, and its suppression by the rule of collective ideals and principles of community is "moral defeat for society (CW2), v.

7, par. 519). Individual can not develop holistically, being immersed in one of extremes of collectivism and individualism – that in both cases there will be some deviation, which can then be recorded in the tradition of psychoanalysis.

So the World Cup is over. Otgremeli fanfare otkrichalis fans, the public continues to chew on inertia scandals and absurdities, but that on long enough. Forget. And, what is most sad, forgotten and a stunning experiment in proscopia (prediction), raised in the air, before the eyes of millions of viewers. And the experiment is really interesting and makes a great deal to think about.

Octopus named Paul, live, did predict the results of matches involving the German national team. That description of the methodology of experience, taken from Wikipedia: "For the predictions in a large aquarium, where the octopus lives, lower two feeders: the flag of Germany and her opponent in the upcoming match. It is believed that he will win, with a trough whose flag was opened by Paul first. " Add from myself that all the experiments were carried out before the match. The results were great: of the eight (8) presented at the World Cup predictions of all eight (8) proved to be true! Even without any mathematical research (which later), it is clear that such a random result can not be! However, this is not the first experience of Paul in divination.

Prior to this, in 2008 he predicted the results of the German national team at EURO 2008. Then, out of 6 correct predictions were made 4. That is called, podnabralsya experience and to improve outcomes. If approach the problem mathematically, we obtain the following: applying a model of Bernoulli trials with probability of success (correct prediction) 50% (in the first approximation is quite acceptable), we obtain the probability coincidences for EURO 2008 is 0.234 (up to three decimal places) and for the entire series of 14 trials (Euro 2008 and World Cup in South Africa combined) 0.0056 (up to four decimal places).
