mystery of synchronicity
Swiss Army Knife
The mystery of synchronicity
Psychiatrist Carl Jung coined the word synchronicity to describe events of meaningful coincidence with no apparent causal relationship.
When I was traveling through Europe in 1981, I lost my Swiss Army Knife.
Fast forward to 2015: One morning, I opened the door to my studio, and there on the ground, I find the same model Swiss Army Knife that I had lost all those years ago. The knife had seen much bad road.
I asked around, including the UPS and FedEx drivers if they lost such a knife. No lost knife from them.
I cant explain how or why this knife returned to me any better than Jungs concept of synchronicity.
