RE: Scary Coincidence
I've often noticed unusual things happening in pairs. For example, I would hear a new word and then, hours later, hear someone else using that same word. Or someone would mention an old TV show I hadn't thought about for years and then, within a day or so, someone else would bring up the same show. When I was younger, I used to wonder if these pairs meant something, especially since it was always two occurrences and never three. Then one day I realized that single occurrences happen all the time, but there is no reason for them to stand out. And unusual things happening twice in a row is even more unusual so no wonder they don't happen three times. No mystery at all.

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Is that a quote from Douglas Addams?



@Denzil take the time to listen to this audio titled Stochasticity, I think it’ll answer some of your questions.
