Order and beauty of the universe and strange coincidences

Post by anewmirth » Fri Oct 04, 2013 11:36 pm

Hi! :D I'm looking for some help with ideas for the quote below. I really like this quote and I'm looking for other examples. Can anyone make suggestions for examples of the kinds of "strange coincidences" in nature which demonstrate the beauty and order of the universe that this quote is referring to? It might be other mathematical examples, or any scientifically related fact, or how different things in nature reflect other things in a strangely coincidental way.

Thanks.

Gosh 'mirth... everything and anything :D

Watching this little boy 'growing' .... and 'turning into' ....

Also that mouse brain neuron and the universe graphic you displayed a while back is pretty 'mind blowing' in this way.
But then again, so is the homeless man photo, actually pretty much all of the things you shared in the Beautiful Path (inspiration) thread :D

Actually, everything and anything :D

:lol:

Good idea. The video is good. ET loves that metaphor. I'll let that one sit awhile within.

Fractals?

There was a link to a documentary once about natural con-incidences. I'll try to find it for you and link it.

There are many, many natural laws that we are very far of understanding. Everything seems to be organized in a total coordination. My experience tells me not to expect any possibility of chance in coincidences.

Hi 'mirth,
Great thread. I like the mandelbrot fractal and all the other posts. Here is the link to the documentary I was thinking of. It's called Inner and Outer Worlds:
Part 1: Akasha http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXuTt7c3Jkg
Part 2: The Spiral http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIMoxXO0XvM
Part 3: The Serpent and Lotus http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNEruEsb5T4
Part 4: Beyond Thinking http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmL4CeTENtw

YUM YUM YUM!! on so many layers!!
“Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous.”
― Albert Einstein, The World as I See It
“Coincidences mean you're on the right path.”
― Simon Van Booy, Love Begins in Winter: Five Stories
“We do not create our destiny; we participate in its unfolding. Synchronicity works as a catalyst toward the working out of that destiny.”
― David Richo, The Power of Coincidence: How Life Shows Us What We Need to Know
“We know that attention acts as a lightning rod. Merely by concentrating on something one causes endless analogies to collect around it, even penetrate the boundaries of the subject itself: an experience that we call coincidence, serendipity – the terminology is extensive. My experience has been that in these circular travels what is really significant surrounds a central absence, an absence that, paradoxically, is the text being written or to be written.”
― Julio Cortázar, Around the Day in Eighty Worlds
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
― Albert Einstein

Wow lots of good stuff there guys. Runstrails I've watched two of the parts to that documentary and it is fascinating. We here in Australia have download limits and I'm running a bit close to empty this month so I will watch the other 2 next month. Thanks for those quotes smiileyjen!
