Coincidentally my credentials in this bizarre subject are at the opposite end of the psychological spectrum. I am a State Certified Lunatic who therefore is validated in discussing all the weird things which are within the scope of this article. You have to be crazy to get a handle on certain unidentified things. I hear dead people or (disembodied voices) and psychiatrists have labeled me a “Chronic Undifferentiated Schizophrenic” while I still insist that dead authors talk to me.
Books and movies influence, inspire and move the world. Ultimately writers! The renowned psychiatrist Carl Jung coined the term, “Synchronicity” and defined it as, “Meaningful Coincidences” which ultimately as an idea provided the answers to make GPS a reality. But his studies remain incomplete and open to speculation. I have been drawn to the paranormal all of my life and I know its gifts and curses.
I willingly participated with the help of many dead people in creating a language that generates coincidences in synchronicity. I have personally documented over one thousand personal coincidental events and the only one published anywhere is the number one article in philosophy for ‘what came first the chicken or the egg.’ So here now is another look at this subject and its unknowns based on several publically known coincidences to consider, with a twist.
Not religious, but only acknowledging the influentially best selling pieces of writings to date, the Holy Bible states in the Book of Matthew 5:28 “But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” That if, you even think of evil things, you are sinning, is out of the bible in the next two following verses of Matthew and go hand and hand with this quote from the mythical Wizard Merlin, when he says, “When a man lies he murders in some part of the world.” in the motion picture called, Excalibur. Similar too the theory and the movie called, The Butterfly Effect. Throw in the quote from the movie the Ten Commandments, “So let it be written, so let it be done.” and you’ve cracked open the lid on a whole can of worms.
All four major apostles and the Lord say: Matthew 1:22 “All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet.” Mark 14:27 “Then Jesus said to them, ‘All of you will have your faith shaken, for it is written.’” Luke 22:37 “For I tell you that this scripture must be fulfilled . . .” and John 19:36 “For this happened so that the scripture passage might be fulfilled . . .” All through the New Testament it says that every prophecy ever written in it will be fulfilled and that many will more will prophecy in the future. So could that apply to modern day writer’s imaginations and writings and spiritual prophecies also? Could a writer be making prophecies without even being aware that they are?
Possibly because when Morgan Robertson wrote a story called, “Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan” in 1898. The Titan is a giant ocean liner that sinks in the North Atlantic after hitting an iceberg written –exactly- fourteen years before the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage after hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic. Now we have a piece of tangible proof that something way more is going on between the lines! Usually this story and the following examples are termed, “Conspiracy Theories” I am presenting something completely different and from the perspective of numerous personal experiences with in the processes eluded too, as a writer.
Books have a way of coming to people. As if the things written in them were written and put there just for you! As if you don’t find the books, the books find you! The implications of all these ideas are immense! Roman Polanski directs a movie about a woman carrying the devils baby who God’s people wish to kill, than –exactly- in reality his own pregnant wife and unborn child are slaughtered by the Manson family, with Charlie calling his self, Jesus!
Or Bruce Lee’s last movie called, “Game of Death” A movie he wrote (where he played an actor in a movie) who is severely wounded by a live bullet on the set –exactly- how Brandon Lee, his son died twenty years later while filming the movie, “The Crow” coincidentally, accidentally killed by a prop gun on the set with a live round mistakenly placed into it!
This is pretty creepy stuff when you start trying to figure it out. If you get a hold of a string of these thoughts you will find it leads to the entire web of all humanity past, present and future. Time has no barring whatsoever in these ironic coincidences. When a dead author touches your life, it is a bonding of intent for just you, sometimes years before you we’re even thought of. It would appear therefore, time becomes only an irrelevant illusion and reality begins to warp and relate to everything that’s ever been, is, or will be and to the man in the mirror.
Through the looking glass, Alice in Wonderland was written by one of the first quantum-physicist and is validated by chaos theory, string theory and entanglement physics. Ideas are literally living things, it would seem. How dangerous the minds and brains (that we only use ten percent of) become when the percentage rises, for an example: in the case of an Albert Einstein being born to cancel out an Adolph Hitler.
Einstein said, “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.”
President Lincoln and President Kennedy share a host of wild coincidences worth our study: Lincoln was shot in the Ford’s Theatre. Kennedy was shot in a Lincoln limousine, a Ford car. Oswald ran from a warehouse to a theatre. Booth ran from a theatre to a warehouse. Kennedy had a secretary named Evelyn Lincoln who warned him not to go to Dallas. Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy who told him not to go to the theatre. Both were shot in the head while their wives were present; both on a Friday; and both Oswald and Booth were killed before they could be put on trial. The list goes on and on if you research it more thoroughly as dose the Bruce and Brandon Lee coincidences.
Or has anyone ever heard of all the coincidental synchronicities in the band, Pink Floyd’s master piece, “Darkside of the Moon” LP and the writer, Frank Balm’s master piece turned movie, the “Wizard of Oz”? If you are interested: Start the “Wizard of Oz” movie without the sound and ready yourself to hit play on the “Darkside of the Moon.” when the MGM lion roars for the third time, start the music.

Here’s a funny related coincidence, Dorothy Utley was at the Dixieland Flea Market when a tornado sucked her dog Tinker Bell up into the air heading south over Dixie Highway in Michigan. A psychic located the lost Chihuahua a few days later.
