Term: Synchronicity

DEFINITION:
Originally a term created by psychologist Carl Jung meaning that the mind creates a relationship between two events when none exists.

Some people use the term as the actual unknown cause (“What causes magick to work? Synchronicity.”) of magick working rather than simply noting that the relationship between magick and the effect of magick appears to be acausal and unrelated.
