Amazing coincidence

I don’t think coincidences are magical or anything-they’re just coincidences.
But I got freaked out over one even though I know it was either just random or there’s some scientific explanation for it.

About three weeks ago someone started a concert thread. Post your concert. I found an old clip on YouTube of the exact Led Zeppelin concert I went to in 1977. I forgot about the thread then just two days ago YouTube picked a video for me as a favorite. I’ve been watching a lot of Bruce Springsteen concert clips lately. Clips of him from the 1970’s all the way up to 2016. YouTube picked a favorite for me to watch. It just popped up when I logged into YouTube. And it was a clip of the exact Bruce Springsteen concert I went to in 1978! I know it was the one because it was the last show ever at Winterland in San Francisco. That was the third concert I’ve ever been to. Why did that exact concert pop up? Was it a coincidence? That quite a coincidence for that to pop up out of nowhere. Or did google somehow research my life and found out somehow I went to that concert over 40 years ago? I think it’s just an amazing coincidence.

You dont notice all the irrelevant stuff it shows you because it has no significance to you which makes it seem the significant one is a bigger coincidence

Just a co-inky-dink I’ sure.

I get annoyed with coincidences because then I start believing in miracles again. But that leads me down an exhausting obsessional, potentially deluded psychotic path so I tell myself u know what universe. I don’t give a toss about coincidences.

Your brain could be in a hyper sensitive mode…connecting dots…etc. to create a certain outcome you desire.

It’s just a random occurrence which happens occasionally in life.

Yeah, it’s a big one though. Right after I post about Led Zeppelin, the Bruce Springsteen concert pops up. Kind of a neat coincidence.

Were they in the same city or state? Could easily be an algorithm thing. Fans of similar music searching concerts…if they were in the same city, a few fans who attended the one you were at may have searched for similar concerts in the same city. Hence the Bruce Springsteen came up. Could easily be YouTube seeing the connection between the artist and the city and saying…hey here’s a similar artist in the same city around the same date.

Not in a creepy spying way tho, just in a computer algorithm sort of way lol

YouTube has a music app so they have a great algorithm for finding similar music to recommend

The cities were right next to each other. Yeah, I thought it could be something like that. I don’t want to read too much into it though.
