Life would be incredibly boring if every single day was filled with the same routine over and over, with nothing straying away from the regular path you set for yourself at the start of the day. These deviations from the path are what makes the entire notion of an unpredictable life enticing and appealing to live out and experience. The little things such as the phenomena of experiencing Deja-vu for the 1000th time or experiencing the weird coincidence of wearing the same outfit as two random strangers that pass you by. These are the things that you remember at the end of the day, right before you go to sleep.
Plenty of names are assigned to these. Some call them “strange coincidences”, some “happenings”, but my favorite of all the assigned names is “glitches in the matrix”. The name is so apt and appropriate mostly because it perfectly describes what these weird occurrences do to our lives, they give us entertainment and wonder. The so called “glitches in the matrix” filled the film with special effects and mind-boggling action scenes, giving you a sensation that would make you sit at the edge of your chair at every scene. Seeing two people wearing the same shirt, doing the same action instills the sensation inside of you that the world is not exempted from being strange and unexplainable.
There are even cases of twins experiencing the exact same lives, people getting struck by lightning on multiple occasions, and even cases of the supernatural entering our lives. The point I am trying to make is that the universe is made to be strange and filled with surprises. A life without them is just not the same as a life that can keep you on your toes on a second to second basis. These interesting factoids of other people’s lives, and the daily occurrences of “glitches” in yours are what adds to the overarching enjoyment that we experience every day. So the next time you see a strange coincidence, or experience some strange déjà vu, instead of trying to find some explanation, be thankful that these happenings exist, and that they can add some spice into your life.
