Synchronicity

Synchronicity (German: Synchronizität) is a concept first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl G. Jung Jung held that to ascribe meaning to certain acausal coincidences can be a healthy, even necessary, function of the human mind—principally, by way of bringing important material of the unconscious mind to attention. This further developed into the view that there is a philosophical objectivity or suprasubjectivity to the meaningfulness of such coincidences, as related to the collective unconscious.During his career, Jung furnished several different definitions of the term, defining synchronicity as , , , and as the .
