Carl Jung and J. B. Rhine had many interests in common and considerable correspondence exists between them. Jung was delighted to see targeted scientific research on phenomena he had noticed in his work with patients. He coined the term “Synchronicity” for this strange interaction between inner states and external events that seemed to correspond to those states. He defined Synchronicity as “an acausal connecting principle.” By this he meant that there seemed to be no physical relation between the two ends of the relationship, but instead a relationship of meaning.
