Does anyone ever think they're psychic? 2 or 3 things have happened recently just after I've been thinking about them. Very odd feeling.
This has happened to me quite a few times, too! It's abit creepy really
The trouble with coincidence, is that you only notice it when events coincide. Such confluence of events is however so very much outnumbered by those events which do not coincide, thereby raising no sense of alarm or creepiness.
How many times have you thought about someone/something and nothing more come of it? That nothing comes of it, doesn't register because it's the norm.
Stand in a room and ask someone to point out something symmetrical and they'll look for any sort of 'butterfly' type configuration they can find. Point to a blank wall though and they'd look at you puzzled - just as you may well be now! - but a truly homogeneous blank wall represents countless (mathematical) symmetries, not merely the two
that make a special case, the two that stand out.
