However real and significant synchronicities can seem, they are also notoriously subjective. The events of a synchronicity can be simultaneous or years apart. They can be strikingly similar, or one event can merely seem like the answer to the other. What seems beyond chance to one person can seem random to another. What looks like a clear message from one angle can be interpreted differently from another angle, or be viewed as altogether meaningless. How can we study a phenomenon that exists so fully in the eye of the beholder?
