Synchronicity in the news: Article about Carl Jung

Here is an interesting article just published in the Guardian about Carl Jung.

Carl Jung, part 6: Synchronicity
With physicist Wolfgang Pauli, Jung explored the link between the disparate realities of matter and mind

The literary agent and author Diane Athill describes the genesis of one of her short stories. It occurred about nine one morning, when she was walking her dog. Crossing the road, a car approached and slowed down. She presumed someone needed directions. A man leaned out and brazenly asked her whether she would like to join him for coffee.

I am not just a strong believer in synchronicity but a confirmed "knower",having had many unarguable instances in my life for as long as I can remember. That is why I question this story as being a case of the phenomenon. Since there don't appear to be any more details to the story I would ask why Cahill didn't think that perhaps this was her long lost friend who might have been suffering some sort of amnesia but was experiencing the accessing of his brain of certain memorable aspects of her being and recognizing her in some way. This would be remarkable.
