A lot of people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch of
unconnected incidents and things. They don't realize that there's this, like,
lattice of coincidence that lays on top of everything. I'll give you an example,
show you what I mean. Suppose you're thinking about a plate of shrimp. Suddenly
somebody'll say, like, "plate," or "shrimp," or "plate of shrimp" -- out of the
blue. No explanation. No point in looking for one either. It's all part of a
cosmic unconsciousness.
