Duh. Ya.

If one understood Jung's theory of synchronicity, one would realize 
that. Jung regarded the I Ching, a Chinese method of divination as 
the clearest expression of the synchronicity principle, he 
wrote: "The Chinese mind, as I see it at work in the I Ching, seems 
to be exclusively preoccupied with the chance aspect of events. What 
we call coincidence seems to be the chief concern of this peculiar 
mind, and what we worship as causality passes almost 
unnoticed...While the Western mind carefully sifts, weighs, selects, 
classifies, isolates, the Chinese picture of the moment encompasses 
everything down to the minutes nonsensical detail, because all of the 
ingredients make up the observed moment."
