Here are some definitions to bear in mind when reading my future posts:

"Religious experience is numinous... and for me, as a psychologist, this experience differs from all others in the way it transcends the ordinary categories of space, time, and causality. Recently I have put a great deal of study into synchronicity (briefly, the 'rupture of time'), and I have established that it closely resembles numinous experiences where space, time, and causality are abolished."
                                                     - Carl Jung (from 1952 interview with Mircea Eliade)

apophenia: the spontaneous perception of connections and meaningfulness of unrelated phenomena.

Judge for yourself which fits.
