co·in·ci·dence (kō-ĭn'sĭ-dens, -dĕns')
The state or fact of occupying the same relative position or area in space.
A sequence of events that although accidental seems to have been planned or arranged.
Do you believe in them? Coincidences, I mean. I do -- in the sense that things happen simultaneously so that they appear to have occurred accidentally and have no relation to or effect on each other. It's coincidental when two or more events occur at the same time and place, but ... isn't it simply events following a plan? It's not a plan that you and I can fathom, perhaps, but there's nothing mysterious about it. It's merely, in my opinion, things happening the way they're supposed to happen. Coincidences happen -- on purpose. Coincidences are educational. Often elucidating. They're sometimes confirmation of something you suspected all along. Whatever coincidences are, they are not happenstance. What it is, is synchronicity at work. The word "synchronicity" was, of course, coined by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. It is defined as the phenomenon of coincidences too coincidental to be coincidental.
I think that I would be an idiot to ignore a whole gestalt of coincidental synchronicity. There are idiots, and there are idiot savants. As far as I know, I'm neither. Now, if I happen to stumble across another blog entry somewhere today that addresses the same topic, I would be an idiot to dismiss it as sheer coincidence. There would be some undercurrent there, some thread to explore. At the very least, my mind would send me a "Kindred Spirit" alert and move me to explore the other person's psyche just a little bit.
I don't seem to have any Full Moon hangover, but I had a hard time getting to sleep last night and I've had a tough day. What I was trying to say, certainly I could have said more clearly. Hopefully, you get the gist of it.
