Over the course of my life, I’ve noticed certain irregularities with the concept of time, space and the notion that any and all events that have or will happen are random.
This mode of thinking has been debated many times throughout our history. If you are religious, you were programmed to believe that a single higher power was at work (intelligent design). If you are more scientific or a realist, you probably believe that there is always a mathematical explanation for everything.
While there is definitely a “design” and “explanation” for just about everything (eventually), in my opinion; there is only one conclusion.
There are no coincidences.
ALL matter (solid, liquid, gas) can be broken down into its most basic, native component… energy.
Energy comes in many forms. It is free flowing thus interacts with itself. None of us would be here right now if that was not true.
Take a magnet for instance. We all know that the opposite poles (-/+) of two magnets will instantly attract one another but what happens when you flip just one of them (+/+)? It creates such a negative force that you can never truly put them together, in that state. This is an example of “cause and effect”.
Life and reality in general works under the same or similar rules. You can’t always fully explain the “why” but given the many “discoveries” mankind has uncovered in such a short period of time, it is only a matter of time before even the most unimaginable questions are answered… or at least touched upon.
Here is an example that I want you to think about. It involves an eerie correlation involving a ship called The Titanic, which sank on April 15, 1912.
In 1898, a little known author by the name, Morgan Robertson published a book called “Futility”.
It was a story about the largest ocean liner ever built.
On its maiden voyage, it would attract the rich and great of the world.
On an April night, it struck an iceberg.
Sounds like a coincidence, right?
The author included a very detailed description of the vessel in his book.
The ship in his book weighed 70,000 tons.
The Titanic weighed 66,000 tons.
Robertson’s ship was 800 feet long.
The Titanic was 882 feet.
Both were capable of traveling 25 knots.
Both carried about 3000 passengers.
Both only had lifeboats for a fraction of that number.
Both were considered unsinkable.
Still a coincidence?
The author called his ship… Titan.
The book was written and published 14 years prior to the events that happened on April 15th, 1912. Coincidentally, my grandmother was born on April 15th, 1912.
In Life, there are no coincidences.
Everything happens for a reason… even if that reason isn’t always easily identified.
