the only coincidence i've seen is while watching "Dr. Strangelove" i picked up my copy of the book opened it to a random page glanced at a random line on the page and at that precise moment heard on the film precisely the same dialog written upon which my glance fell .

as for the "law of attraction" i recall learning something of it a few years ago . i found it intriguing . it would be nice if it were in fact true . it is difficult for example to believe however the low odds of winning the lottery can be overcome by mere positive thoughts . if in fact that is the correct understanding of the "law" . though i recall reading amazing results the details of which i now do not recall .

going back to coincidence i have a little story .
i purchase the LP of the soundtrack to "Blade Runner" . with the LP in the distinctive bright orange bag of Rose Records w/ logo i then visited another store an art supply store to view their writing instruments . upon approaching the counter w/ said pens the lady behind the counter spoke to me "Is that the new Vangelis album ?" i did not know what a "Vangelis" was . upon returning home i examined the liner notes and discovered the composer was none other ! i attributed this to womanly wisdom . namely she sized me up . perhaps we would have been sympatico . but being the social cripple i never would know .

another similar story .
at lunch several other fellow workers began discussing electronic music . one of the fellows was attempting to recall the name of a particular such . he could not . he asked me to remember for him . i replied "Tomita" as i happened to have an album of his . he affirmed that is who he was attempting to recall . i do not know how he knew i knew . perhaps he sized me up . we were not particularly sympatico .
