Fancy seeing you here, Weirdos!
Welcome to part two of COINCIDENCES! Last week we told you a collection of stories that people had about their own crazy coincidences and a couple of our own personal experiences. This week we're getting down to business. Are coincidences real?
We take a lot of sides in this one, trying to come at the material from different points of view. Lauren starts us off by discussing a skeptical POV- we look at the math and probability of coincidences occurring and what it takes to determine if it was special or not. Then we discuss the contradictions involved in fate and free will-- if our lives are predestined, if every decision we make was already decided by 'God' then... how can we have free will?
Then Ashley comes in with a very popular theory called SYNCHRONICITY. Are coincidences winks from the universe telling you you're on the right path? Can the signs be positive and negative? How do we start to experience more of them? And finally, is there any science behind these winks? Behind good and bad vibes?
WHEW this episode is conversation heavy so put on your thinking cap and get ready to open your mind!
