Even though synchronicity, the term coined by Carl Jung for meaningful coincidences, has attained some renown, according to Mansfield it is badly misconstrued. Here he discusses what synchronicity is, its parallels with quantum mechanics and perhaps why it shows up in our lives: "In some sense, final cause is operating in synchronicity. There seems to be something impelling us to come to some sort of resolution with our problems." Mansfield delves into the complex issues of synchronicity and quantum mechanics in terms we can all understand, drawing upon his seemingly disparate studies in physics and Buddhism, as well as his own personal experiences, enabling us to see the magic of synchronicity and the underlying scientific basis for it working in our own lives.
