His radical and provocative point of view has garnered wide spread appeal dominating the synchronicity scene culminating in his provocative categorical assertion that a causal explanation of synchronicities is not even conceivable in rational terms. It will be demonstrated that Jung’s a-causal synchronicity theory, while emotionally compelling, raises more challenging questions than providing definitive answers. Further it will be demonstrated that all the factors that lend Jung’s synchronicity a distinctly supernatural cast such as the transcendent function EANINGFUL COINCIDENCES — 27 — 28 Chapter 2 and the a-priori realm of absolute archetypal meaning will be accounted for from a purely naturalistic theoretical and psychodynamic perspective.

In a small group Jung conducted experiments with his fifteen year old cousin Helene Preiswerk, respected as a gifted young medium. 26 These occult experiences had so much impact on him that he came to have an increasing overlapping of psychological and spiritual (transcendent) points of view. This mixture of the psychological and the spiritual would later become the essential elements in Jung’s combined psychodynamic/supernatural (mystical/magical) theory of synchronicities.
