The word "acausal" seems to be vanishing in the general current descriptions of synchronicity,  as can be seen in:

a)Wikipedia:  

Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, yet are experienced as occurring together in a meaningful manner

b)Merriam-Webster

the coincidental occurrence of events and especially psychic events (as similar thoughts in widely separated persons or a mental image of an unexpected event before it happens) that seem related but are not explained by conventional mechanisms of causality.

Does it mean that nowadays  "acausal" has problematic connotations, and therefore it is better not to use it?
