Synchronicity usually accomodates people by reflecting the fantasy to them, right or wrong.  Good experimental science usually doesn't start with answers.  It starts with questions.

It then takes what is known, and makes up a good story about what is happening.  That story is explanatory fiction.  It accounts fo all the information , then makes a good guess.  That story is then tested with experiments to try to find out what is real.  Real is important because it allows us to make predictions about how reality actually works.  Explanatory fictions, like religions, don't have to be true to be useful.

  Most religions are complete fantasy, and, most religions are inherently beneficial and useful.  Even if factually incorrect, they give a social pattern and personal direction that has allowed civilization to exist.
