Is It Really Just A Coincidence? – By Jim Francis

Many see coincidences as embedded in a higher, transcendental force, cosmic “glue,” as it were, which binds random events together in a meaningful and coherent pattern. The question has always been: could such a harmonizing principle actually exist?

Or are skeptics right in regarding this as a product of wishful thinking, a consoling myth spawned by the intellectual discomfort and capriciousness of chance?

Mathematician Warren Weaver, in his book, Lady Luck: The Theory of Probability recounts a fascinating tale of coincidence that stretches our traditional notions of chance to their breaking point.

The story originally appeared in Life magazine. Weaver writes:
All fifteen members of a church choir in Beatrice, Nebraska, due at practice at 7:20, were late on the evening of March 1, 1950.

The minister and his wife and daughter had one reason (his wife delayed to iron the daughter’s dress) one girl waited to finish a geometry problem; one couldn’t start her car; two lingered to hear the end of an especially exciting radio program; one mother and daughter were late because the mother had to call the daughter twice to wake her from a nap; and so on.

The reasons seemed rather ordinary. But there were ten separate and quite unconnected reasons for the lateness of the fifteen persons. It was rather fortunate that none of the fifteen arrived on time at 7:20, for at 7:25 the church building was destroyed in an explosion.

The members of the choir, Life reported, wondered if their delay was “an act of God.” Weaver calculates the staggering odds against chance for this uncanny event as about one chance in a million.

Coincidences such as these, some say, are almost too purposeful, too orderly, to be a product of random chance, which strains somewhat to accommodate them. But then how do we explain them?

Another definition for SYNCHRONICITY

Synchronicity at this point can be defined as a series of seemingly unrelated events which are connected via a hidden agenda.

The recent publication of the SUPERSTRING theory indicates that there may well be ten dimensions in existence, not merely the four that ones senses are currently aware of. (Length, breadth, width, time)

There is now considerable mathematical proof to indicate that ten dimensions exist.  And most quantum physicists have given serious consideration to this theory.  It would appear that the “hidden agenda” of synchronistic events may be transparent and obvious in one or more of these ten dimensions, but become opaque and difficult to fathom when viewed in our current restricted four dimensions.

And there is now at last a small amount of evidence to indicate that when an individuals subconscious mind-set is modified to encourage positive PK synchronistic events (luck) then synchronistic elements may be set into play which materialistic as PK Luck events in our “real time” dimension.

And conversely when a person becomes aware of a series of synchronistic events they can use this special knowledge to trigger a burst of luck.

What has been definitely proven however is that the mind-set of an individual influences their interaction with the environment, to an extent which can leave a person “stunned” at the positive results.

What I have discovered over the past 4 years is that if I call up a dream program to “induce” synchronistic events in my waking life ….then instruct my mind to consciously recognize these events as a synchronistic train….I can usually recognize where they are leading to and be there at the right time and place to take advantage of them.

I have personally had at least a dozen of these recognizable synchronicity trains in the past 3 years and each one has bought me sometimes quite incredible luck. So much so that friends here in Vanuatu keep telling me how lucky I am!!

    This is mind boggling stuff! Others have only touched upon these philosophies or theories in very general terms – and I suspect without fully understanding them (then again, who really does), but you have a deeper comprehension and you do a great job of breaking it down. I’m writing a movie script that touches on this phenomenon and should the story line call for it, I will delve into your blog for key phrases and principles. I’ll be sure to give you the appropriate credits for your contribution. Thank you for your insight.

    Your article is a very interesting point of view, however for myself I do not believe in coincidence. I think everything happens for a reason and that God is the one that makes those things happen to fit his plan for your life.

    Strange I found this article as I have been very interested in synchronicty for quite some time as I seem to have many instances of it in my life. One of the most recurring ones is when I am reading something on my computer and come to a particular word or phrase and I hear it spoken simultaneously on the TV which is on in the background. I am not even taking any notice of the TV but I hear it still. It happens so many times that it can’t be a coincidence can it?

    This is a controversial subject which always incites a lot of debate. I can only tell you that some of the world’s most famous and greates minds believed in cause and effect as well as the law and power of attraction. The world’s most ancient civilizations unanimously believe in the power of prayer or as scientists call it, transmuational communication. How can we question the ancient cultures who have existed much longer than this society. It is only the ignorance of today’s newer cultures that dismiss the power of supernatural phenomenon and try to relegate it to folklore or fantasy. But in fact, the ancient civilizations, all of whom were as sophisticated as ours, and wiser, acknowledge the existence of supernatural forces.

    I suppose when for example, you prepare or train for something, then in the future, something challenging occurs that your previous preparation (which was intended for another purpose/reason) helped you overcome, you could look back on the experience and say that things happen for a reason. You could say that some higher force in the universe made another set of circumstances happen in order to prepare you for the other event. It sounds dramatic and people love to think of themselves as being special and existing for a purpose greater than them. Your article is very good in putting this in the right perspective.

  6. The Law of Creation or Law of Attraction process is based on the beliefs your mind creates. If you think about something and that thought becomes a belief, the proving part of your mind acts on that belief and that is what it creates or attracts. If a person actually believes that life is a struggle, that they’ll never find a soul mate, or that they’ll never have enough wealth to lead the life they want, then they’re right. These beliefs support the minds need to be right, therefore proof that the belief is correct. Your circumstances are always the creation and reflection of your beliefs. Try to be more open minded.

  7. Weather is never a coincidence…

    Weather Warnings Bring Change To Your Life
    We all know that weather can change our lives. Bad weather can make you miss your plane. Missing your plane can then trigger a series of other events that alters your life short-term. On a larger scope, weather can affect an entire country and alter people’s lives and the economy of that region. A drought or even too much rain can wipe out an agricultural economy. Recent earth change events like earthquakes have triggered tsunamis and flooding that killed many people and left thousands homeless and at grave health risks from a resulting nuclear disaster. Weather disasters also bring the onslaught of diseases that have far-reaching effects beyond the initial weather occurrence. Yes, peoples’ lives are changed forever by weather and earth changes.

    Weather Warnings Bring Change To Your Mood
    Whether you believe it or not, weather can change your mood. It’s harder to be depressed on a bright, sunny Spring day. It’s easier to be depressed during an extended, rainy, gloomy period. Just look at how cold weather and snow affects your mood if you planned on going to an outdoor sporting event that day. Wouldn’t you feel better sitting in the stands with the warm sun on your face rather than bundled up, peeking out from your parka between the snowflakes? Adverse weather takes away from your enjoyment of the game and therefore, the enjoyment of your life. Would you rather ride your bike through the forest on a crisp, clear Fall day or during a lightning storm? Your mood, and your fears, are directly affected by weather and earth changes.

    The implication, which is so eloquently put in this article, coincides with certain things I accept as truth. One is that the universe is made up of mathematical laws by which all matter is governed. I also believe that if we were able to better understand the laws that govern gravity, we could master the power of flight or teleportation. One of the most significant, but dismissed theories is that the ancients were taught anti gravity technology with which they used to build complex and precise megalithic structures throughout the world. And that we are only now rediscovering technology that was lost in time along with the civilizations that vanished from the face of the earth. My point is that if all these things are true, which I am convinced of, then certainly there is more to all that happens under the sun than mere coincidence.
