Συγχρονικότητα
Explanation:
Το βιβλίο του εμπνευστή της θεωρίας έχει επίσης μεταφραστεί ως "συγχρονικότητα" (http://www.greekbooks.gr/web/book/details.aspx?ProductID=143...

Από το site του Carl Jung:
Synchronicity. A phenomenon where an event in the outside world coincides meaningfully with a psychological state of mind.

Synchronicity . . . consists of two factors: a) An unconscious image comes into consciousness either directly (i.e., literally) or indirectly (symbolized or suggested) in the form of a dream, idea, or premonition. b) An objective situation coincides with this content. The one is as puzzling as the other.["Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle," ibid., par. 858.]

Jung associated synchronistic experiences with the relativity of space and time and a degree of unconsciousness.

The very diverse and confusing aspects of these phenomena are, so far as I can see at present, completely explicable on the assumption of a psychically relative space-time continuum. As soon as a psychic content crosses the threshold of consciousness, the synchronistic marginal phenomena disappear, time and space resume their accustomed sway, and consciousness is once more isolated in its subjectivity. . . . Conversely, synchronistic phenomena can be evoked by putting the subject into an unconscious state.[On the Nature of the Psyche," CW 8, par. 440.]

Synchronicity was defined by Jung as an "acausal connecting principle," an essentially mysterious connection between the personal psyche and the material world, based on the fact that at bottom they are only different forms of energy.

It is not only possible but fairly probable, even, that psyche and matter are two different aspects of one and the same thing. The synchronicity phenomena point, it seems to me, in this direction, for they show that the nonpsychic can behave like the psychic, and vice versa, without there being any causal connection between them.[Ibid., par. 418.]

και από Wikipedia:
Als Synchronizität bezeichnet Carl Gustav Jung relativ zeitnah aufeinander folgende Ereignisse, die nicht über eine Kausalbeziehung verknüpft sind, vom Beobachter jedoch als sinnhaft verbunden erlebt werden. Synchronismus dagegen bezeichnet die Ordnung von Ereignissen nach der Zeit. Im engeren Sinn handelt es sich bei der Synchronizität um ein inneres Ereignis (eine lebhafte, aufrührende Idee, ein Traum, eine Vision oder Emotion) und ein zeitlich darauf folgendes äußeres, physisches Ereignis, das wie eine (körperlich) manifestierte Spiegelung als Antwort auf den inneren (seelischen) Zustand wirkt. Um das Doppelereignis tatsächlich als Synchronizität definieren zu können, ist es unerlässlich, dass das innere chronologisch vor dem äußeren Ereignis geschehen ist, da im umgekehrten Fall angenommen werden kann, dass das innere Phänomen auf das äußerlich wahrgenommene Vortagsereignis reagiert (womit wieder eine quasi kausale Erklärung möglich wäre)...
