To each their own, of course, Eddie, always. :) But when I said this below, I was talking about the treatment of synchronicity as a field of study.

"Seeking to establish true improbability is what matters, and that has nothing to do with opinion or personal preferences."

The potentiality of synchronicity is inherently related to what's perceived to be improbable, that's why the latter's exploration is important. This is always implied in the famous question, "What are the odds!?"

It's the difference between jumping up and down like you've won the lottery because you won a coin toss, or doing the same because you've won the lottery. Some people appreciate that distinction and recognize it's relevance to a serious study of synchronicity. Others don't.
