Before I try to directly address your questions, let me say what I think may be the most important thing in all of this, which is that synchronicity - if this stuff is non-random - simply reminds us that our present paradigms are inadequate to explain syncs. Period.
Beyond the random interpretation, I see two possibilities, which is about all I've heard from anyone anyway.
These syncs may be design, imparted by an extremely advanced agent. If that's true, then perhaps their function is spiritual in nature, to inspire "wonderment", as discreet reminders that we are not alone. Gentle signs that are there to be embraced or ignored, ones seamlessly installed within the greater unfoldment of mundane cause and effect.
The other idea that syncs are based on a mind-matter connection. What's interesting to me, when I think of the Mayans in this context, is this: They really believed in the coming of a new WORLD age. What of their fixation on that subject, which would have occurred for centuries, during the time when they refined the Long Count (which was designed to identify when the world change would occur), which we know was finished no earlier than the 1st century BC or 21000 years ago...
What if the Mayans said to themselves, (with a requisite conviction and attention that may have something to do with Darryl's ability to perform PK), throughout the time they refined the LC, that the world will change around "188.8.131.52.0", which would have been their dating of the turning of the 5125 year, 133 day Long Count.
If we dispense with having to explain their uncanny precision in terms of mundane cause and effect, the door is open to the possibility that this change could be articulated in 'future terms', eg through the 'future' foundational elements, trans Mayan ones, which in my post include the following: the Julian-Gregorian calendar re 1618, the Hindu Arabic number system, re '1618', Phi and the Fibonacci?
All of these things irrefutably came along after the Mayans. When we dispense with our mundane conditioning, the simple fact is that the Mayans didn't have to know about the particular nature of these things or just be really really lucky. They only had to know when the world would change. And as things worked out, when you take their parochial view and project the results forward, some 2100 years, to exactly when they said the changes would kick in, you have a very direct hit on multiple counts. The Julian-Gregorian and the Hindu Arabic number systems are not just big things pertaining to other cultures. They were, in fact, the dominant global forms of expression in 2012, when the 'world' would change, according to the Mayans.
But what if consciousness played a part, and the Mayans' devotion to the idea of when world change occurred influenced the outcome? This is another way that synchronicity may be explained, and our precedent is our understanding of quantum mechanics, where the subject is seen to influence the outcome in ways that defy mundane cause and effect, AND where the rules of time are seen to be something other than what we think of them.
My further thought, however, is that maybe the Fibonacci's reach extends to an as-of-yet-unrecognized causation where syncs are explained. If these two 1618's are due to a kind of mental causation, then the Fibonacci correlations are certainly on point. In Matt 16:18 it seems clear that Jesus was talking about a line of succession, or at least very plausible. The same is certainly true of how the Mayans viewed the turning of the Long Count, that it would mark a renewal of humanity.
