      Jung called it acausal, but I don't see that as part of the necessary
      explanation. As you put it, it is difficult to reject cause and effect. So
      it could be that two things happening at the same time are the effects of
      causes. By way of example only, one could argue that both efffects are
      sympathetic responses to something larger, as opposed to one being the
      cause of the other. I believe that Jung himself meant something like this.
