According to the Free Dictionary, a "coincidence" is "a sequence of events that, although accidental, seems to have been planned or arranged". And no doubt we have all had such experiences, often leaving us with a sense of wonder and mystery. But is it really coincidence? Or is something else working behind the scenes?
Some peoples’ lives are inexplicably intertwined, it seems, and there might be more than mere coincidence at work. It’s often said that all things happen for a reason and, in the case of coincidence, that may well be true. Sometimes novelists unwittingly write fictitious stories that end up coming true or they have weird experiences that cannot be explained rationally. It seems that sometimes people’s fates are inexplicably intertwined somehow.
