You may recall incidents in which:

  • A parking space open up as you drive up to it.
  • You were thinking of a friend or a loved one and moments later they called you or sent you a text.
  • You left a fancy restaurant after an expensive meal and then encountered a hungry homeless man digging through a dumpster.

These strange and random combinations of events always seem to occur with a minimum level of expectation and virtually no concept of connectedness. We don’t or can’t intentionally cause these random combination of events to occur, but when it does occur, the outcome will often leave us with a decision as to whether or not the combination of events was truly random.

In this video, presenter Frederick Tamagi explores the idea of coincidence.
