To Die, A Momentous Thing!

“Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous” – Albert Einstein

Synchronicity is a magical quality of life. Every day, whether we are aware of it or not, experiences connect as perfect reflections of one another. I used to consider these events random “coincidences”, until I realized how often I witness matched experiences. Especially as a musician, who constantly explores the energetics of frequency harmonics, my awareness of the constancy of synchronicity is steadily increasing. Now I understand that these miracles are simply part of the fabric of the mathematical expression of this universe.

This spooky story of a musician’s last moments is a phenomenal example of synchronicity in the music world:

Leonard Warren was an American baritone opera singer, and sang for many years with the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. His last performance there — and anywhere — was in “La forza del destino: (The Force of Destiny)”. Warren was delivering Don Carlo’s Act III aria, which begins “Morir, tremenda cosa: (to die, a momentous thing”). Upon its completion, he prepared to sing “E salvo, o gioia: (He is safe, oh joy)” — but alas, before these words of salvation could cry from his mouth, he suffered a massive cerebral hemorrhage and fell to the floor. Fellow operatic baritone Roald Reitan, who was onstage playing the part of the Surgeon, rushed to his aid. Warren was dead.

A tragic miracle of perfect symbolic synchronicity.
