The fact that there are 7 billion people in this world means that some pretty mind-boggling coincidences are likely to happen to a lot of people just by chance. But does that mean that chance is necessarily the best explanation for ALL the coincidences and synchronicities we experience? It doesn’t. I explain why in a guest editorial I wrote for Dr. Bernard Beitman’s Psychology Today blog.
I’ve also written about this topic in even greater detail in my book The Source and Significance of Coincidences: A Hard Look at the Astonishing Evidence and in a scholarly paper recently published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Scientific Exploration.
