Good Afternoon Friends,

I had something happen this week that has inspired me to create this thread and share a video with you. It was a Coincidence.

So stick around, lets wade thru this mysterious world together =)

Now, I have had many miraculous coincidences happen throughout my life, but I will only mention this one, the story goes as follows..

About 6 months ago, I decided to take a trip to Florida for a weekend with my now EX girlfriend. I had bought plane tickets for the following month. As time progressed I decided that it was not a good idea to make the trip at that particular time and moved the plane tickets to a much later date (this weekend) and paid hefty fees to do so.

I have since broken up with this girl, and decided not to take the trip at all. But I was in a conundrum. The airline offers no refunds, and moving the tickets to another date would almost double their price!

So I was stuck. I did not want to use the tickets but also refused to pay yet another rescheduling fee. I had made the decision to simply not show up for my flight and let almost a thousand dollars go to waste....until..

A few days ago I received a phone call that made my jaw drop, it went something like this:

"Hi Sir, this is so and so from your airline. I see you have tickets for this Friday, and unfortunately we are having technical difficulties with the airplane for your return flight and you will not be able to fly back on your desired day. We called because we are looking for passangers who are willing to CANCEL or CHANGE their flight for FREE due to this technical problem with the plane"

I immediately was able to cancel and get ALL of my money back. What are the odds? That the exact plane on that exact date had mechanical trouble and I was given the chance to cancel my flight and get a full refund!? (and this airline Never gives refunds, its their policy)

But I digress..



What I would really like to do is present you with a few images, and ask you to really stop yourselves for a moment and ask: Could this really be a coincidence?

1. Trump "predicted' on The Simpsons cartoon about 18 years ago. I would like you to pay attention to the matching details here. Look at Trumps podium, at the angle the microphone is in, at the 2 flags behind them, trumps outfit. Coincidence? or proof of time travel? Remote vewing the future?



2.How about this one? The details down to the lighting on their brow ridges and their facial expressions, still think this is a simple coincidence?



3.On a lighter note, this next one needs no explanation=)





Are coincidences really that? or is our life indeed guided by some unseen universal power that seeks to create balance, by manipulating realities?




Here are 10 more amazing coincidences, if you are not yet convinced something spooky is going on here:



Now you may ask, in a whiny voice "but TurbineJet, how does this tie into coincidences and how they relate to simulated realities?"

Well that is a good question, one that this video has attempted to answer.

I think this: there can be no simulated reality without coincidences and there can be no coincidences without a simulated reality!

Please enjoy the video below, post your own crazy "coincidence" stories and your take on all this.

Is it all a coincidence...or something far more sinister..

Cheers,
TurbineJet

Here are 10 more amazing coincidences, if you are not yet convinced something spooky is going on here:
I think #1 is erroneous.


It’s a case that would seem to defy the odds many times over: Two Florida women born on the same day, in the same state, and given almost the same name. Though no one realized it at the time, it turns out they were also given the same Social Security number.

Joanna Rivera and Joannie Rivera only recently discovered the problem, according to a report this week, but in the meantime it’s caused no end of trouble for them. Credit applications have been denied; tax returns have been rejected.



It’s not as uncommon as you might think. In fact, some 40 million SSNs are associated with multiple people, according to a 2010 study by ID Analytics.

Someone else can check on the rest.

Oh? And even with the possibility of being issued the same social security number, are all the other similarities between the two women, all just a coincidence?

It mathematics. Maybe it's entropy. Even unlikely chances of something happening still have the chance of happening and do rarely.

Now it we want to believe the maths we see does not actually match the real universe then that would seem to point to something artificial.

Thing is, once something happens the odds become irrelevant.

No. But, there is something to be said for the idea of describing civilization as a simulated reality. As most people are completely oblivious to any reality that exists outside of human civilization.

For example, the average "citizen" is a carefully constructed illusion that only ever breaks if the individual is completely separated from the modern world. Consider that you see people walking down the street in clothing and it never even occurs to you that the clothes are all you see. A facade.

Everyone looks (more or less) the same on the inside. When you fall in love with someone, you're falling in love with a brain. Everything outside of that is superficial.

I don't subscribe to this theory regarding coincidence. I don't see how this thread reinforces your position of simulations requiring coincidence and vice versa.

In an infinite universe, everything is infinitely probable. For every fortunate incident there is an unfortunate one. I think it's just natural balance.

The other day, I was getting out of my car and while my head was tilted for a split second, a rain drop fell directly into my ear. And it didn't mean anything .

But the odds against that happening at that moment are ... astronomical.

But statistically, it would have to happen to someone, at some moment.

Edit: Oh, I see what you did there. You got me.

Yeah.

Not only that. It did. To you.

Coincidence?

If the universe is simulated, could coincidences be a control method to indirectly influence our reality?

The Matrix was a really great movie wasnt it

Maybe for the same occurrence, if that is what you mean.

They do for something else to occur. Unless I am not following your initial thought.

Anyway

the location of our existence

1. the real universe
2. a simulation which matches the real universe
3. a simulation which does not match the real universe.

A slightly better chance we see the working of the real universe?

edit:

But could we know if coincidence is a real universe only or simulation only situation.

No Such thing as coincidences=)

Like winning the lottery? That's the thing about odds. The fact something happens once doesn't change the probabilities of it happening again.

Of course, one might say that's just in the coding, if one thinks the world is a simulation.

OP is recently registered but first thread looked familiar, I'm almost sure it was featured on ATS years ago.
The original ATS thread featured Hillary Clinton but it seems to have disappeared without a trace?

I can't deny that coincidences mystify me and sometimes effect me deeply, filling me with wonder and sometimes even fear. Sometimes I feel loved and cared for and sometimes it makes me feel closely watched in a creepy "you can run but you can't hide" way.

I saw some of those Trump coincidences before too, lol. WTF!!!

OK, I see you initial meaning.

In theory same odds to win the lottery any given day.

But difference odds of each number draw in one day's drawing is different.

So coincidence generally falls into the first, I suppose, if one time.

And, once it happens the odds of it not happening are irrelevant.
