Dear Adelasie,
I am referring here to the physical world as this is the world I am most familiar. I am not sure how applicable synchronicity is but given the rather open ended definition of the term it would apply to other planes/worlds/realities etc.
Perhaps if you share your thoughts on the subject we might be able to understand eachother a little better (hopefully!!)
Kind regards,

I wonder if we could be talking about the same thing? If you consider 
science, as you are studying it, to be purely related to the physical 
world, does synchronicity represent a system relating to another to 
you? I am not a scientist, so hopefully you will bear with me.
