Types of Synchronicity --Distance

(2) The coincidence of an inner psychics tate with a corresponding external event which takes place at a distance and is only later validated. In 1759, Emanuel Swedenborg was dining with friends 300 miles from Stockholm when he went pale and said that a great fire had broken out in Stockholm not far from his home. He went on to say that the fire was spreading rapidly and he feared that some of his manuscripts would be destroyed. Finally, at 8:00 p.m. he spoke with relief: "Thank God! The fire is extinguished the third door from my house!"Several days later, a messenger arrived from Stockholm and described the fire in details that exactly matched Swedenborg’s account.  (Synnestvedt, 1995)
