11801, no such thing as coincidence...|

just a term humans give to not being able to explain events that are similar...notice i didn;t say "extrememly similar" but similar...because the degree to which these events happens is what lends a following to terms like coincidence...
if we we to examine our days like in a movie, we'd see a lot of coincidences...but when we observe some that have a high number of similar eevents we become intrigued initially and then search the memory for similar ideas that fit the event just witnessed...
add to that the fact that people DO NOT like IGNORANCE, or NOT KNOWING something and wanting to be able to explain it somehow....and you come up with "extreme coincidence".
