ThinkSnow Wonderful story, thanks for sharing. I first heard the word synchronicity back in 85 or 86 while reading Tom Wolfe's "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" -- I was reading the part about the birth of Ken's daughter Sunshine, when...what the heck, there she is, standing on the porch at my front door on Harris Street in Eugene, Oregon with a massive tank of N2O! Good times indeed.

“The Pranksters never talked about synchronicity by name, but they were more and more attuned to the principle. Obviously, according to this principle, man does not have free will. There is no use in his indulging in a lifelong competition to change the structure of the little environment he seems to be trapped in. But one could see the larger pattern and move with it - Go with the flow! - and accept it and rise above one's immediate environment and even alter it by accepting the larger pattern and growing with it.” ― Tom Wolfe, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
