I am convinced that there is a collective subconscious or something of the nature in action. Nothing else can explain the coincidences that occur – the world is NOT that small, it's got over six billion people. So how is it that the ones I know I know by more than one route? Strange indeed.
Consider the word verification option in blogs. Half the time (afterI began noticing) the word verification has something to do with my reply, my unsaid thoughts, or the blog itself. I was thinking about not posting, the words came up to be soemthing like 'ostrich'. Hesitating about pushing "post" when the verification word turned out to be 'rytwrds'. Was reading something about home, and it's 'maschn'. (railways code for CHeNnai Central is MAS.) Beat that.
Maybe the Universe has a Sense of Humour. Freaky. Or maybe I'm just seeing patterns in too many places.
