Our brains are very complex super computers that process and store data for retrieval based on a lot of different factors. Emotion, reaction,
experience and so on.
9-11 is a significant number and your brain is very used to storing numbers in all sorts of patterns. Phone numbers, Social security, bank accounts
and PIN numbers, birthdays and so on. Your brain sorts and files these numbers based on use and importance, social, bank accounts, PINS, Important
(to you) Birthdays and of course those phone numbers of friends and coworkers that are easily retrieved because of use and importance.
So, our brains hear or see something with a 9-11 because - especially for Americans - this is a number our brain has placed a lot of signifigance
We notice it because our brain has a lot of data it can call up based on this number the same way it calls up information based on other significant
numbers already stored there.
When you begin to dial a friend whose number you have memorized your brain supplies supplimental information, your friends name, their picture and
perhaps other information.
Had the terrorist attack occured on 8-14 you'd notice that a lot more, so it is just coincidence and again is just a demonstration of how miraculous
the human machine can be.
IMO of course, I could be totally wrong.
