It's all part of the same parcel, except viewed from the pov of the work rather than
the pov of the perceiver. The past influences the present as much as the present influences the past.

  As for "synchronicity", I thought you had the following in mind, Peter:

  "the historical sense involves a perception, not only of the pastness of 
  the past, but of its presence; the historical sense compels a man to write
  not merely with his own generation in his bones, but with a feeling that
  the whole of the literature of Europe from Homer and within it
  the whole of the literature of his own country has a simultaneous
  existence and composes a simultaneous order."
