|“|| I figured out what a Synchronicity Event is. There was an incident when they lost control of Fettel, he just suddenly started freaking out. He was only about ten years old at the time, but I guess he killed a few people. In the investigation, they discovered that there had been a telepathic link between Fettel and Alma, even though she was in a coma. They concluded that she was influencing him. That must have been why they pulled the plug on Origin.
The first Synchronicity Event was an incident in which Alma Wade established a telepathic connection with Paxton Fettel when he was ten years old. Very few details are clear, but Fettel caused seven casualties. When Armacham Technology Corporation researchers discovered the link between Fettel and Alma, they shut down Project Origin and cut Alma's life support, leaving her to die.
After Genevieve Aristide sends a number of teams in to clean up the Origin Facility, Alma is again able to connect with Fettel, creating the second Synchronicity Event. At this time, Fettel is in control of a battalion of cloned soldiers, which he uses to hunt for the location of the Origin facility so he can free Alma. It could also be assumed that the second Synchronicity Event may have granted Paxton Fettel the ability to dissolve into ash and vanish out of plain sight, even when he is alive in the events of F.E.A.R., as he demonstrates a few times throughout the game.
In F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate, the Sergeant finds a phone message from Walt Gragg asking Scott Rasmussen to dump all files pertaining to Project Origin, as well as any files labeled Perseus, Icarus and Synchronicity.
The Sergeant later sees Gavin Morrison telling Mr. Bristol that the Nightcrawlers are planning on stealing synchronicity by taking ATC's samples of Paxton Fettel's and Alma Wade's DNA. However, by the end of Perseus Mandate, the Nightcrawlers are only able to obtain Fettel's DNA.
