I Think Of Things Before They HappenFor several years a strange thing has happened once in a while where I think of something and then later that day or week, usually it's never more than 3 days, I read about that thing. I'll give you some concrete examples but I just want to be clear about something first. I have no idea the thought I had is going to happen. I just realize afterwards that it did. I could attribute it to randomness and Carl jung's theories on synchronicity but these things are way too specific. Let me share with you what has happened.
An old one that I remember was in high school in 2005. I was driving back from school and had an instant need to see the movie "my cousin vinnie" this is an old 90's movie about two guys who end up in court. Its pretty funny. Anyway I get to my house and turn on the tv and I start looking at the guide in the movie section. All of a sudden I bump into that exact same movie. Again I did not feel that I was going to see it before it happened it just did. I personally think this is way too random yet specific to be considered happenstance.
Another noticeable moment was when I woke up one morning and went to the bathroom. I thought "why hasn't anybody reinvented the toilet". Later that day I read about bill gates spending 40 million dollars on reinventing the toilet. I probably have thought about that a lot of times before and nothing ever happened but why did it happen that exact day?
Another time was when I thought of a business idea. Two business ideas can obviously happen a lot of times, but it wasn't the business idea that caught my attention it was the justification. I had told my idea to a programmer and he told me "oh your idea sounds a lot like such and such thing" and I said no its not at all the same. Then 3 days later I read a news article on my exact same idea and one of the subtitles is "it is not like such and such thing" it just freaked me out that a subtitle would say what I had said about that same idea a few days earlier.
Another one was that I was with my girlfriend and I told here that it would be awesome to see two big ob
The last one I'll talk to you about is is the earliest one i had. I was going to write a book report for school; I forget which one. I postponed the report for about a week and then one day before I had to turn in the report I started reading it. Now this was before spark notes so that sucked, but the next best thing happened, I turned on the tv and the movie was playing!
Again it is not that I know these things are going to happen. And its just something way too specific to be a coincidence.
What are your opinions?
