I was talking to a friend about synchronicity last night and I remembered this morning it is a Jungian term and also the great story about how it originated from a dream beetle….
i know the explanation below sounds a bit esoteric but it all goes back to Jung’s theory of Collective Unconscious, or the shared collective unconscious of the human species. We all share, according to him, one collective mind. We share symbolic meanings. What we think, therefore, also exists outside of us and is part of us. Or if you’d like to make the explanation more current the universe is us and we are the universe.
