A sort of example of this would be when someone mentions a song which is rarely if ever played on the radio these days and a day later we hear it played on the radio. We might explain this by saying that because it had been mentioned in conversation our minds were attuned to hearing it on the radio. Had we not heard it mentioned the day before, it would have been still played on the radio but we wouldn't have given it particular notice.
However, not all of us are entirely comfortable with that explanation. We cannot help but feel at a strange level that both events might somehow be connected.
I'll give you an example of synchronicity.

Can such things be put down to sheer chance?
