What Is Synchronicity?

How Synchronicity Works

Synchronicity requires a human participant because it’s a subjective experience in which we give meaning to a coincidence. Meaning differentiates synchronicity from a synchronous event. A synchronous event is anything simultaneous — events that occur at the same moment. Clocks are synchronized, airplanes are scheduled to take off at the same time, several people walk into the same auditorium at the same moment, but no one sees anything significant in these coincidences. In synchronicity, however, the meaningful coincidence occurs within a subjective timeframe. We link two events together, the events need not occur simultaneously, although that’s often the case.
