A synchronicity is a unique concurrence of events that are not connected by cause but may be connected by meaning.
The reason it haunts us is that even though we can’t validate or prove the connection between the components, the cause, we often can’t escape the significance of the outcome, the meaning. It’s a challenge to shift our natural questions from the cause of something that happens, to the meaning of something that happens.
Coincidence doesn’t require a question, but synchronicity always requires a question.
In this video, presenter Frederick Tamagi explains the difference between synchronicity and coincidence.
