synchromnicity_sting

An acausal connecting principle.

Described by Carl Jung as “temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events.” A “meaningful coincidence” that cannot be explained by direct causality.

It differs from coincidence in that synchronicity implies not just happenstance, but an underlying pattern or dynamic that is being expressed through meaningful relationships or events.
