The synchronicity is a concept introduced by Carl Jung psychoanalyst in 1950, defined as “a principle of a causal links” which consists of a link between two events that occur simultaneously connected together in a non-causal, that is, not in such a way that the ‘materially affect one on the other; they both belong to the same context or significant content, like two clocks that have been synchronized on the same time. The word synchronicity comes from Greek roots syn “with”, which marks the idea of assembly and Khronos “now”: the meeting in time, simultaneity. Despite being a recently coined term, Jung’s concept of synchronicity has an origin detectable in the philosophical tradition of Neo-Platonism. Already Plato argued the existence of an intelligent reality, the ideas, forming and directing the material, in such a way that the phenomena of nature are interconnected by a higher law that he called dialectic. The correlation between black and white, for example, be found in their town of color ideas.

Even the neo-Platonic Leibniz spoke of harmony preset, whereby the different monads that make up the universe, which do not communicate with each other, “having no doors or windows,” and even can act causally on each other, however, they are all in sync as many watches that will mark the same time, so that their action seems to be, apparently, causal. In A Modern Myth (1958), Jung tries to show that the phenomenon of flying saucers is a product of the unconscious in front of one individual’s spiritual roots, acknowledges the importance of certain material events.

He then sees the UFO World synchronicity: there is no causal link between the fact of seeing flying saucers, supposed real, and the fact that the collective unconsciousness of these images of alien worlds are to alert individuals.

For Pauli and Jung, scientific discoveries are often due to synchronicity; It is not in fact rare that the same fact was discovered by different scientists in the same period. In my point of view, I personally do not believe absolutely in randomness, for me everything that happens in the material world and not, has its concept, its purpose, a purpose. So I think the synchronicity reveals a reality (in this case the vision of a flying saucer) that most of the human race does not know.
