This happens all the time - but why?
Yesterday I suddenly thought of Leo Slezak missing the swan boat in Lohengrin during a performance - the thought popped into my head unbidden. Just now I was reading the New Yorker and it referenced that same incident (Leo: "What time is the next swan boat?")
That kind of thing happens all the time to me and doesn't seem to mean anything, but what is it? A demonstration of how close, nay, overlapping, things are? Is it a kind of alpha-sorting issue in real life?

I believe Jung called that synchronicity ... the quality of a moment permeates the entire universe ... but I also believe we receive information telepathically, and then later it shows up in physical reality, but whatever it is, it happens to me too.
