A coincidence


Why did YOU bump into me HERE and NOW?

What a coincidence!” We proclaim that all the time, but is it just happenstance or is there a reason for it? Starting from childhood we encounter and use the concept of coincidence often. What is coincidence? Is it two events that take place randomly and in unison, but seem unlikely to have a propensity to collide in time.

But what really is the probability of a coincidental occurrence? And how often do coincidences really happen? It doesn’t add up, what we term as coincidences occur far more often than mathematically logical.

I think a brilliant portrayal of the likelihood and definition of a coincidence can be found in the poem Design by Robert Frost. This poem details three subjects in nature and their coincidental collision. Or is it coincidental?

I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,
On a white heal-all, holding up a moth
Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth –
Assorted characters of death and blight
Mixed ready to begin the morning right,
Like the ingredients of a witches’ broth –
A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth,
And dead wings carried like a paper kite.

What had that flower to do with being white,
The wayside blue and innocent heal-all?
What brought the kindred spider to that height,
Then steered the white moth thither in the night?
What but design of darkness to appall?–
If design govern in a thing so small.//

Everything has a design; everything has a purpose; everything and everyone is always accounted for in the circle of life. Every person we encounter, everywhere we go, and every major crossroads in life has a meaning, has a purpose. When I came back from Hyderabad I had lost all hope; why was it then that Bhagvad Gita classes were offered in my complex? Why at the very moment I decided not to continue to follow and have faith in the therapist who brought me to Hyderabad, I met a lady who introduced me to a manifestation of God that I could have faith in. I was introduced to the concept of Quantum Physics almost a decade ago and despite repeated head butts with this concept I refused to understand it, but several weeks ago I read about and understood the concept. Why? Because I was ready to; it is not a coincidence I found relevant a topic that I was introduced to a decade ago. What is the likelihood that these events occurred my life at these particular times by chance?

Just yesterday I had a meeting with someone who had a certain agenda in mind and out of the blue we started talking about spirituality. What we spoke about, the recourses he introduced to me: is it only coincidental or did I meet that particular person at a certain time in my life when I was ready to hear his message?

Quantum Physics

I was poor student of science so when I first was introduced to the concept of Quantum Physics I held my breath and refused to swallow. However, several weeks ago I read up on the theory and was able to wrap my head around it within minutes. So this is what I have deduced it to:

1) It is a branch of physics that deals with the nano- smallest of the smaller- particles. It’s implications on the nature of reality are broken into two theories:

  • This theory states that nothing can be quantified definitively because of observer bias. According to this theory Quantum scientists believe that nothing really can have an accurate objective measurement. Example given: the cat experiment

    i. a cat was put in a box {there is no dispute the cat is alive}
    ii. a box of poison is put in the box
    iii. if the cat claws and opens the box, it is dead. If it does not, it is alive
    iv. the cat is alive and dead at this point, it is in both states
    v. only when the scientist opens the box does the can live or die

  • The 2nd theory states that when an action occurs the universe splits itself, accommodating all possibilities. Example given: gunshot experiment

    i. a gun is randomly loaded
    ii. a man plays Russian roulette with himself
    iii. when the trigger is pulled, two universes are created: one in which he dies and one in which he remains alive
    iv. again the trigger is pulled and again the universe further splits
    v. so on and so forth

Based on my brief reading on Quantum Physics there is a larger belief in theory a, however theory b is picking up some momentum.

A] I was introduced to Quantum Physics as it relates to the power of our thoughts. Our thoughts are electrical impulses that are created in the brain. These electrical impulses create an energy, effecting our attitude, behavior, and perceptions. As with any impulse, movement is created that attracts or repels like charged elements. So, if an object is and is not in existence before our thought energy creates a decision as to its existence to US, our thought energy should be formed in such a way that is optimal to us.

In essence then, we create our reality. If the reality in which we have no money, and the reality in which we have money both exist then our thoughts determine which reality we will encounter.

So if we replace our complaints, whines, and negative affirmations with positive, healthy, helpful affirmations we will help create a reality we want.
