the nature of coincidence
    #1502112 - 04/28/03 10:16 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

do you ever notice really strange coincidences, so strange that they can only be explained as phenomenon?

in my life, I have so many bizzare coincidences happening all the time.....and to me they seem like signifiers as to which path in life I should take.....now maybe they would happen no matter what, in any context...

or maybe they can be explained through Jung's synchronicity theory.....

or maybe I am delusional and I assign these coincidences importance because I want to rationalize my existence....and choices..

but they seem to be a little too complex.

the most recent coincidence I experienced went like this (i will spare you the fleshy details)

I was reading a very interesting book that dealt with some cool things that happen in life, things that not everyone experiences (non-universal).

after I finished the book, a very similar thing happened in my life, which happened to the main character in the book.

and.....this coincidence figures into a larger motif that all of my amazing coincidences can be catergorized under, meaning: they all point me in the same direction.

thoughts?

is this one of those japanese books you read about the guy who goes looking for his cat in the Tokyo subway and goes on an amazing adventure?

Fleshy details required.

okay well,

the book i read deals with how in relationships, just by existing you can ruin someones life without even knowing it.

and basically, there was this girl I knew for a short period of time, and then we no longer met each other, and the night before she went back to japan, she left a message on my phone, crying, telling me that she loved me and thanking me.

and this perfectly fit into the theme of the book I had finished reading earlier that day, and fits into the broader theme of coincidence in my life related to my adventures in japan.

heres another coincidence. i was living in calgary the summer before i went to japan, and i was into graffiti, so i remembered the names of a few grafiti writers. one of the writers has only writen in calgary and nowhere else...or at least i thought.

so i get to japan and im staying in a remote place that NOBODY goes to, and on my daily walk from my hotel to my girlfriends house I see a small tag on a brick wall- the exact same tag from calgary.

nowhere else had this guy tagged, not in osaka and not in tokyo...i checked it out....so that shit spooked me. it was like a sign saying "your going the right direction", but maybe....like i said earlier...its all in my head.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Coincidence is more than coincidence.

It's hard to say for sure from this limited, subjective human perception. But I would say it's main contrivers are soul interactions/karma, cosmic humor/irony, and the spirit world in constant intermingling and connection, spilling over into physical reality creating what we perceive as "coincidences".. with little more conscious information to fully understand them.
