Examples of synchronicity can even be found in the arts. The China Syndrome is a fictional movie about a nuclear disaster in which an atomic power plant suffers a meltdown.

The scene on the stairs is a part of my movie that I will never forget. Another scene comes to mind. I was running a relay in a track meet in high school. Dad had come to see it. When the relayer handed me the stick, I dropped it. I dropped the stick. Never have I been so ashamed, humiliated, or full of self-loathing- before or since. No ill-received film or bad, humiliating opinion of me has had the effect of my dropping that stick.

I remember telling Sam to go fuck himself when he tried to get me to eat his spaghetti, and I was trying to lose weight. When he grabbed my arm, I kneed him in the balls.
