A question: If I were to dream I met a woman named Veronica in DC who was Muslim, and worked at a bookstore, and then the exact events transpired the next day, i.e. I went to a bookstore in Ohio, met a Muslim woman named Veronica.. what would you think of that?
I believe there is no such thing as coincidence also.. but for vastly different reasons. :)
coincidence \Co*in"ci*dence\, n. ncidence.] 1. The condition of occupying the same place in space; as, the coincidence of circles, surfaces, etc.
2. The condition or fact of happening at the same time; as, the coincidence of the deaths of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.
3. Exact correspondence in nature, character, result, circumstances, etc.; concurrence; agreement.
coincidence n 1: an event that might have been arranged although it was really accidental 2: the quality of occupying the same position or area in space 3: the temporal property of two things happening at the same time
