Synchronistic events can be explained fully in naturalistic terms. They comprise an instance of the "uncanny" as they return the individual subjectively to a period when the world, as the good parent, was sympathetically attuned to the individual's wishes and requirements. Jung invoked the spiritual, or the supernatural, or the paranormal to explain synchronicity rather than exploring the early stages of human existence.
