Coincidence? Chance? Synchronicity? or ......... ??

Post by Candlelight.kk on 31st August 2017, 13:31

Whether you believe in 'coincidence' or not (I don't), this makes for interesting reading:
Extract from The Wendy Stokes Blog

Coincidence! What’s it all about?

A 'coincidence' is two unrelated events that take place at the same time. Coincidences are surprisingly common and occur many times each day, for example, I was thinking about a friend this morning when she telephoned me. Is this just a co-incidence or could it have been telepathy?

Take another well known example of coincidence. Jonathan Swift, the Irish author, wrote a novel called Gulliver’s Travels in 1726. In this book, he describes two moons that orbit around Mars, yet these two moons were not discovered until 1877, when telescopes were invented and Mars could be seen with two moons in orbit around it. Even greater coincidences than this appear in the written work of the author Morgan Robertson whose two novels became very famous. In 1889 he published ‘Futility’, a novel about an unsinkable British luxury liner named ‘the Titan’ that was on its way to New York when it struck an iceberg in the north Atlantic one calm April night and sank with huge loss of life due to insufficient life-boats, then one calm April evening in 1912, the RMS Titanic was on her maiden voyage to New York when she struck an iceberg in the north Atlantic and lost more than 1,500 passengers due to insufficient life-boats! Was this a co-incidence or could the author have seen into the future? Morgan Robertson continued to be uncannily accurate in his fictional tales. His 1914 novel “Beyond the Spectrum’ describes a futuristic war which begins one December when the Japanese covertly attack American bases in Hawaii. Aeroplanes carry what are called ‘sun bombs’. These bombs were described as creating brilliant blinding light and could destroy an entire city. In fact, the US entered the Second World War because Japan invaded Hawaii in December 1941. The Second World War was brought to a halt when atomic bombs were dropped on two Japanese cities (the Japanese flag bears a sun symbol). Do these two novels highlight another case of random chance occurrence or did Morgan Robertson gain glimpses into the future? Sadly, ‘Beyond the Spectrum’ was his last book. He died before he completed any more novels.  

Even more surprising than these extraordinary coincidences are the amazing list of similarities between the two US Presidents, Abraham Lincoln and John F Kennedy.

Lincoln was elected to the US Congress in 1846 and was then elected as President in 1860.

Kennedy was elected to the US Congress in 1946 and was then elected as President in 1960.

Both men were named after their grandfather, both were second children. Both served in the military, both captained boats, both were lawyers, and both involved with controversial human rights issues. Both have seven letters in their surname and both were six feet tall. Lincoln suffered from Marfan’s Disease and Kennedy suffered from Addison’s Disease. Both men had genetically inherited diseases. 

Both Presidents suffered the death of a child while they were resident in the White House.

Lincoln was shot while sitting in Box No 7 at Ford’s theatre, and Kennedy was shot while in Car 7 in the Dallas motorcade. It was a Ford Lincoln car. Both Presidents were shot in the back of the head on a Friday with their wives beside them. Both wives were 24 years old at the time. Lincoln was shot just before the Easter holiday and Kennedy just before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Both were assassinated by Southerners in their 20s who were themselves shot before they came to trial. Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth and Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald. Both assassins have 15 letters in their name.

Both Presidents were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson. Lincoln was succeeded by Andrew Johnson, born in 1808, and Kennedy by Lyndon B Johnson, born in 1908. Are these remarkable similarities of fate and fortune just coincidences, or could they be caused by reincarnation?

I initially intended to add this to the 'Coincidence?' forum - only to realise that it was actually a section of the now lost Spiritlove forum which carried the long 'Synchronicity' thread, and not here at LAL after all.
Perhaps we should develop this thread into more of a discussion on the subject.
If anyone's got anything to add for further reading in this interesting area, please come and do so here.

(Your own experiences, thoughts, opinions on the subject, links to related articles, etc - any and all would be welcome here)
