There is a common saying that people who study and observe reality are more likely to think the same things. But is there telepathy? Or is it more like by studying the same things no matter what perspective we have the things we are looking at are the same?
Perhaps there is no cosmic plan that gathers people all around the world because they are meant to be together, but because they like the same things and want the same. They are more likely to bump into each other because they meet their personal interests.
Maybe there is no plan that rules our destiny but the same interests that unites people that think alike.
