"temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events."
That's what Jung was describing when he came up with the term "synchronicity". And synchronicity is cool.
About 48 hours ago I was having dinner in NYC with my visiting college roommate, Sally. We started talking about people from college - friends who lived in our freshman dorm (which totally has air conditioning now!) - people we were close to but with whom we had completely lost touch. Two of the people we were both curious about/would love to find were Johnny & Stephanie.
Fast forward to this afternoon when I checked email and found that the aforementioned Johnny had "friended" me on Facebook. I about fell over. So I look through his Facebook friends and see another old friend, Angie. I'm just about to friend her when I see she has already sent me a request. Viral, man. One of their pages lead to finding Stephanie's. So cool.
So if you're reading this, hi y'all!
