The title of Jung's book, so far as I recall, is "Synchronicity,
an acausal connecting principle."
It would be helpful perhaps if someone could upload Jung's own
definition as given in his book, by way of a citation. I would
do this, but I parted with my copy some years ago.
The important aspect of this idea is, I suspect, that as a
scientist of sorts, Jung would want to approach the *evidence*
which he presents in the book without having to take on board any
dogma(s) such as Karma or reincarnation; ie., the "connecting
principle" is *demonstrable* regardless of individual belief.
I, for example, do not accept standard theosophical given ideas
concerning reincarnation (I do not rule it out under some
circumstances) but I *can* relate to Jung's approach.
