Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon? (“Well I Wonder”)

25 Feb

To whomever it may concern,

today I talked to a friend about synchronicity and later found it related to what my cousin refers to as Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon. So I searched for the phrase and all I found out was that it was related to synchronicity.

“Baader-Meinhof” but without the “phenomenon” means “The Red Army Faction (German: Rote Armee Fraktion), shortened to RAF and in its early stages commonly known as Baader-Meinhof Group.”

But why is it called “Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon” and not “same song on the radio that you talked to your friend about just before – Phenomenon” (not as catchy I know) or “buzzword phenomenon” or “synchronizing phenomenon”?

So today, too, I experienced something I hope to understand in a few days.

    Det heter vel stengt talt “same song on the radio that you talked to your friend about just before – Phenomenon” på folkemunne. Det er forresten (blandt annet) dette Hässelby handler om (det var bok nr 1) også leser jeg Jostein Gaarders Slottet i Pyreneene nå som handler om en samtale mellom en mann og en kvinne som ikke har snakket med hverandre på 30 år og møte ved en tilfeldighet – boken er dialogen mellom dem der den ene er vitenskapsmann og den andre er troende. Rent tematisk burde den jo være av en smule interesse for deg…

      Sorry, me no talkie a farmer-communist language. English, madam… ENGLISH!

      I used Google translate and this is what you said:

      “Imagine a society that subjects people to conditions that make them terribly unhappy, then gives them the drugs to take away their unhappiness. Science fiction? It is already happening to some extent in our own society. It is well known that the rate of clinical depression had been greatly increasing in recent decades. We believe that this is due to disruption of the power process, as explained in paragraphs 59-76. But even if we are wrong, the increasing rate of depression is certainly the result of SOME conditions that exist in today’s society. Instead of removing the conditions that make people depressed, modern society gives them antidepressant drugs. In effect, antidepressants area a means of modifying an individual’s internal state in such a way as to enable him to tolerate social conditions that he would otherwise find intolerable. (Yes, we know that depression is often of purely genetic origin. We are referring here to those cases in which environment plays the predominant role.)”

      Yes, I agree with you:)

    It says both closed virtually “the same song on the radio that you talked to your friend about just before – Phenomenon” colloquially. That’s the way (among others) this Hässelby about (the book was No. 1) – – the book is the dialogue between them which one is the scientist and the other is believing. Interest thematically should the course be a bit of interest to you

    Det hadde vært så mye mer sannsynlig vis google translate faktisk hadde vært til å oversette og ikke til å lage dada-litteratur…

      “It says both closed virtually”…”Interest thematically should the course be a bit of interest to you”.

      Haha, dada littratur yes.

      It’s funny because it’s not understandable @ all. Google translates Norwegian – Gibberish.
