OK, I’ll admit it. I’m stuck. I’ve had more crazy coincidental experiences in the last three months than you can shake a stick at.
The problem is that I don’t believe in divine providence or that there are forces working in the world that bring things together to create order. So how do I explain this reality?
Am I just two standard deviations to the right of the normal occurrences of coincidences? Am I more open to experience, and thus experiencing more open experiences? Am I having more experiences, so more likely to have more coincidences? Does the world really tend towards order naturally, even though it would seem to move towards entropy? Is there a physical reality at the cellular level that creates unification? Is there a collective unconscious that we are all aware (and unaware of) at the same time?
Perhaps any or all of those are true, but they don’t really FEEL like they answer the question fully (you could say that it doesn’t feel true), if I am honest, or the data to prove the theory is missing.
I’m not really sure what to do with dilemma, but since this is my current struggle, I thought I would put it out there since I am in search of a satisfying answer to this question and many of my current thoughts are being filtered though this sieve of experience and feelings.
