Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events as meaningfully related, where they are unlikely to be causally related. The concept of synchronicity was first described by Carl Jung (image) in the 1920s. The concept does not question, or compete with, the notion of causality. It maintains that just as events may be connected by a causal line, they may also be connected by meaning. A grouping of events connected by meaning need not have an explanation in terms of a concrete sense of cause and effect. 
So, for example, I received an e-mail yesterday morning, a reader’s comment on The Amazing Polish Factory Worker, the Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of October 3, 2014. I had to decide whether to approve the comment for Ersjdamoo’s Blog. The comment was as follows:
You still have not explained why Anna Anderson spoke fluent German, a language that Anastasia did not master.
Anna Anderson emerged in 1920, in Berlin, and in March 1922 the public first heard claims that she was the surviving Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia.
As for the reader comment, I decided to approve it. It seemed a good question: How could Anna Anderson have spoken fluent German, “a language that Anastasia did not master.” There were two claims being made by the reader: (1) Anna Anderson spoke “fluent German”, and (2) Anastasia Nikolaevna “did not master” the German language.
“Who knows?”, thought Ersjdamoo. “The whole thing is a huge labyrinth, the living labyrinth of the Tsar.”
And here is where the synchronicity of Anastasia enters the scene. Later, in the afternoon, I continued with my usual vanished Tsar studies. I returned to the current book under perusal, Anastasia: The Riddle Of Anna Anderson, by Peter Kurth. And Lo! In the course of my reading, the following section of a paragraph jumped out at me:
Although there were people who said that they had heard her speak in Russian, in English, and even in French, by 1925 Anastasia was speaking German exclusively. Her Russian detractors, Germanophobes all, later employed this fact against her to great effect, with the claim that the Tsar’s daughter, as a girl, ‘knew no German at all’ and that Anastasia, since she spoke it fluently, could not be she. In reality, however, all four of the Grand Duchesses had studied German seriously right up through their imprisonment at Tobolsk in 1918. It was a language they had little occasion to use and which they never mastered, but, after five years in Germany, neither had Anastasia. Dr. Ludwig Berg, the chaplain at St. Mary’s, recalled that Anastasia ‘spoke German, but slowly, and she often had to search for her expressions. Her sentences were not always of German construction.’ 
So here, without a causal situation of my especially having looked for it, was a relevant response to the reader comment I had received that morning. The reader had commented, (1) Anna Anderson spoke “fluent German” (not true in 1925; in 1925 she spoke haltingly), and (2) Anastasia Nikolaevna “did not master” the German language (yes, but she “studied German seriously” right up through her imprisonment at Tobolsk in 1918.)
Perhaps also synchronistic in my amazing day of October 28, 2014 is the explosion that evening of an unmanned rocket on Virginia’s eastern shore.  The day starts with a reader comment, in the afternoon an answer providentially comes, and in the evening the archetype of The Tower, signifying disaster, upheaval, sudden change, and revelation, is activated on Virginia’s eastern shore. Revelation! Anna Anderson/Anastasia Nikolaevna did not speak “fluent German” in 1925 and Anastasia Nikolaevna had studied German seriously until 1918.
And then, this morning, comes the story of a young female Kurdish warrior, thought to be dead, who may in fact be alive. Supposed to have been brutally beheaded by ISIS/ISIL (reminiscent of the fabled 1918 “mass murder in the cellar”), “Rehana”, who fought for Kobani and reportedly killed scores of jihadists, may be alive! Kurdish journalist Rashad Abdel Qader claimed on Twitter that Rehana was very much alive. “The MailOnline has also reported that Rehana is indeed alive, according to her friends.” 
This is getting spooky. What is the synchronistic meaning? After almost 100 years, is the Russian imperial family on the verge of finally escaping the labyrinth of lies in which they have been ensnared all these years?
