Word 1 - Serendipity
Or: Why did I jump out of the chair?
"Have a serendipity-filled day," said the waiter this week who placed a plate of scrambled eggs and tortillas on my table at the airport in Asheville, North Carolina. "What did you just say?" I jumped out of my chair.
"Oh... I said 'have a serendipity day,'" Daniel replied. "That's what I've been saying for years to everyone, "but no one has jumped like that. So what's your story?"
Listen, I told Daniel. I just finished a short 48-hour visit with the queen of the word SERENDIPITY, author Madeline Kay, whom I was lucky enough to meet through Osnat Miron, who shares with me the exploration of the magic of this word.
And when you wished me this blessing, it amazed me.
So what is serendipity?
This is a positive result of things you didn't plan, didn't pay attention to, or happened to you by chance.
Like sitting next to someone on the plane who will become your partner, or finding a book that got lost and you need it today.
It happens to all of us, but we don't always notice.
We don't always stop to understand the meaning of these lucky events.
Moreover, we don't know of a way to increase alertness and experience many more similar events multiple times a day (see the reference below to the "parallel universe" philosophy).
The word "Serendipity" was coined by the English writer and politician Horace Walpole in 1754, following a book he read about the legend "The Three Princes of Serendip" in Sri Lanka. In the story, these princes always discovered revelations by mistake or wisdom, things and revelations they were not looking for.
Serendipity begins with happenings and events by chance or luck.
But, only if you are proactive and invest time and effort will you get a positive result.
My long-standing love for the word serendipity lies in the fact that the word best describes the course of my life. I went through unexpected and sometimes crazy events that made me who I am today. for the better.
Therefore, I have been researching this word for twenty years, including as part of my PhD on paradigms in science.
Madeline Kay, the undisputed queen of this word in literature, tells how she got the knowledge and the muse to write about serendipity decades ago (photo). She describes special incidents that happened to her and spices everything up with the local beauty of North Carolina and her personal beauty.
Thus 48 hours passed, and the end of this visit, which could only be serendipity.
Daniel's sentence gave me the title for my next book, "Have a Serendipitous Day".
This synchronicity, of a visit where one word dominates, which is revealed to me again as I wait for the plane to take me to Miami, and for someone to tell me a sentence I've never heard and which will become the title of my next book,
This is serendipity.

Word 2 - synchronicity
Synchronicity translates to "simultaneity" or "coincidence in time." The "syn" in synchronicity refers to the idea of things happening together, at the same time or at the same time. "Chronology" comes from the Greek word "chronos", which means time.
While spontaneity is a positive and unexpected event or occurrence, synchronicity is a significant coincidence. Synchronicity involves events occurring at the same time or in close proximity to each other, but without an obvious causal relationship.
And this is the main point.
Synchronicity can also be found in science but also in parapsychology as explored by Carl Jung.
In the field of quantum mechanics, for example, there are many examples of synchronicity, such as the concept of entanglement, where two particles can be coordinated in such a way that their behavior depends on each other, regardless of the distance between them. When one turns over, so does the other.
Clock synchronicity can be seen in the "drift" phenomenon in physics, in the synchronization of pendulum clocks hanging on the same wall. Even if they started with a different movement they will eventually synchronize together in movement.
In the same way you can see the synchronization of fireflies, or the behavior of pacemaker cells.
In Hebrew this word has a use: "Let's synchronize our diaries", so that we can talk or meet at the same time.
According to psychologist Carl Jung:
Synchronicity is not without reason, but there is a connection that man cannot necessarily understand. Synchronistic events are inexplicable on the face of it, but they can be and be perceived as significant because they suggest a deeper pattern or connection, or connection between seemingly unrelated phenomena. And as mentioned it is already parapsychological.
What can nature teach us?
One example of tree synchronization is called "crown shyness", also known as "canopy detachment". This phenomenon occurs when the crowns (the upper branches and leaves) of certain tree species do not touch each other or overlap, and leave gaps or channels between them to allow light and air to reach the bottom of the forest mainly in the forest (for those who are already thinking of entire streets where the ficus trees connect with each other, please Remember that we spoiled nature there, and the trees were already confused).
Crown shyness has been observed in a variety of tree species, including eucalyptus, oak, maple, and pine (see palm photo).

Word 3 - prompt
A must for those who want to start artificial intelligence. And the principle here is simple: the quality of your questions will determine the quality of the answers.
In the field of artificial intelligence (AI), the prompt = a prompt, is actually a question that we ask the software such as for example chat chat or it can be a short text or a piece of code that is used as an input to a language model or another AI system.
The prompt = provides context and direction to the artificial intelligence system, and guides it to produce a desired output for you.
And here is the moment to stop and realize that the question may determine the quality of the answer which can advance you or be nonsense.
The use of a prompt is common in AI chatbots.
A prompt can be a message or question from a user, such as "How's the weather today?" The chatbot will then use this prompt to generate an appropriate response based on its programming and the available data.
Another example of a model prompt might be: "Write a story about a mischievous boy who discovers a mysterious object in his parents' backyard." The language model will use this directive to create a story that fits the context and orientation of the data.
The guidelines can also be used in other AI applications such as creating images (all the images in the newsletter here are from Midjourney, and according to the text I wrote!), translation and recommendation systems.
The use of guidelines has become more and more popular in recent years, and it is important to understand again that the quality of advanced artificial intelligence systems is very high, and what lowers the productivity and high quality is only the questions you asked, the wording, and the direction you gave.
So if you want to use the knowledge pool of our "old" humanity, just ask good questions. A bit like the Tillman walk. If you asked the question correctly, you will also get a correct answer.

Three words: serendipity, synchronism, prompt, all connect to action and a deep understanding of man and the knowledge he has accumulated so far also as humanity.
