Exploring The Science Behind Coincidences
How many times have you made the decision to do something, and the result makes you wonder about whether it was a coincidence? Do things happen by chance? Are coincidences real?
Scholars usually cite three possible causes of coincidences — probablility, God or another higher force or being, and our subconscious.
Dr. Bernard Beitman has studied coincidences for decades and is the first psychiatrist since Carl Jung to attempt to categorize and even explain them. He is in private practice in Charlottesville, Virginia, author of "Connecting with Coincidence" and is here to talk about coincidences and how common and impactful they are.
