Do you think that synchronicity is a rather silly idea?

Or would you rather that aeroplanes did not crash into each other at air shows. women in groups would all have their periods at different times leaving the place looking like a coach crash. Would you rather that synchronised swimmers were just called swimmers and did daft things at different times from each other? We got some real bananas on here.

    Not necessarily. One of the co-founders of modern Psychology, Karl G. Jung didn't have an "idea" (silly or not) he OBSERVED it and gave it its name and description. "Meaningful coincidences" that APPEAR to have some sort of "connections" with each other and events in people's lives.

    Jung supposed the reason for it was "The interconnectedness" of the universe as proposed by the early work, by physicists on Quantum Theory at the time. (early 20th Century) that suggested as much-- Quantum Entanglement ----Einstein called it "Spooky motion at a distance"---And later worked on by his protégé, David Bohm, who was able to explain it in terms of Absolute and apparent reality---which also lead to, in more recent times, HUT or "Holographic Universe Theory" Physics.

    Jung, BTW, attributed the workings (when they worked) of the I-Ching and Tarot Cards . as functioning on Synchronistic Coincidences they generated.

    The idea that the universe is "Hard edged", "solid" and "mechanical" is long outdated and went the way of the Dodo over 100 years ago. Folks need to brush up on the "higher order" Physics used to EXPLAIN the "Standard Model" that only describes what happens and not the WHY.

    Well, you do not seem able to express properly exactly what it is that you are talking about.  How often do planes crash into each other at air shows ?  What is the connection to women's periods ?  And synchronised swimmers do their shows intentionally, so there is nothing supernatural about it.  You are the only supernatural  thing here; you are off your trolley.
