The Psi of Coincidences - Psychology Today

Dr. Bernard D. Beitman attempts to answer to explain the nature of coincidences, their origin, and if there is any scientific means of proving either. He tells us about how Winston Churchill somehow avoided danger twice during WWII and other coincidences he experienced in his life. Sounds a bit like the plot from a Netflix miniseries. But there's some scientific basis to all this--see the work conducted at the Rhine Research Center in Durham, North Carolina--as there is to Explaining The Eureka Moment. Clive Prince reviews Edgar Allan Poe, Eureka, and Scientific Imagination by David N. Stamos, which he describes as a revelatory pleasure: "Stamos simultaneously uses modern science to vindicate Eureka and Eureka to deepen our understanding of science." (CM)
