Oh, this is a deep one!
When two things are seen to "correlate," it means some aspect of those things share a common form. I say "form" because
geometry is
something that is so universal it can be readily used to represent most anything you can think of on some conceptual level, but it could be
anything.
A duck and a banana correlate because they are both associated with the color yellow. A tree and a plant correlate because they use many of the same
biological processes and resemble each other in many other ways. The number 50 correlates to the expression "(2 (5)) + 40" because they represent
exactly the same integer in our mathematics. So these all shares commonalities but the commonalities themselves may differ.
What does it mean when two things correlate?
Really,
everything in existence correlates, which is why you will hear people say "everything is one" or "all is one." Two things
correlating is just a small demonstration of this fact.
The concept of entanglement in quantum physics reveals a very similar physical behavior at the quantum level: two touching particles can be sent
traveling away from each other at the speed of light, and yet changing the movement of one results in a change in movement in the other
immediately. Some form of information (energy) travels faster than light on a quantum level and informs the particles. If there was ever a
point of singularity in our universe, then that implies that
everything is still connected to
everything else on a quantum level.
Science catching up with 1000's-years old philosophical principles.
Pick any two objects you possible can think of, and they will be correlated somehow. It is impossible for you to think of two things that
don't correlate, especially since even thinking about them and trying to associate them in your head at least gives them one correlation: both
concepts were compared and contrasted in your head. If that sounds trivial, what is so trivial about your actions and thoughts in the universe
compared to the motions of a single atom? Think about it. Everything ties together somewhere, even if you can't see it so clearly from here.
