An unusual idea and a little bit like marmite. Either you agree or disagree. I have come across very few who are undecided. My husband told me about a new example involving starlings. Or was it skylarks? Swifts?
Well the reason for this post is that I believe coincidence is a fantastic thing and while a lot of people may disbelieve and say – ‘you must have seen it out of the corner of your eye/behind someone…’ in this particular case it is a subject that has been close to my heart for a while. It is about voluntary euthanasia. Last year I started a book on just that subject and I found out this weekend that Al Pacino has filmed, for tv, ‘You Don’t Know Jack’ about the controversial Dr Kevorkian. He filmed it and I’ve written a book about it. Not about dr Kevorkian, but about voluntary euthanasia and its impact on those left behind.
I thought it was extremely coincidental and then the idea of morphic resonance came to me. Why, if we believe that only 10% of our brain power is being utilised, is it not possible that our brains are actually picking up ideas and thoughts that others cannot help but shout (telepathically). This is then filtered down and only the most salient ideas are shuttled down to the conscious level but in such a way that we are unable to perceive it as anything other than our own thoughts? Maybe I should write a book about that. Or is someone else already doing it?
