About Synchronicity

Some modern mathematicians argue that synchronicity is simply the result of a world in which there are an infinite number of potential coincidences. As a result, a coincidence that might seem supernatural to us could be explained away by a mathematician who points out all of the coincidences that didn't occur. But where's the fun in that?

Did you Know?

Psychologist Carl Jung didn't coin the word synchronicity, but he brought it into popular usage through his writings on coincidence and human nature.
