Coincidences? Or just an idle brain?

I saw the movie "Girl with a Pearl Earring" today and kept thinking about some really odd coincidences.

Although I had seen a picture of Johannes Vermeer's painting before, I didn't know the name of the painting until very recently. Even then, I didn't know that there was a movie with the same name and also, I happened to get the dvd of this movie entirely by chance.

A crucial scene in this movie very closely resembles an incident that happened during my first year in college. Strangely enough, I was talking to "Bawa" about that exact same "Nandu Varuthu... Nari Varuthu..." incident just 2 days back (we spent quite some time trying to remember the name of the persons involved).

I read in a book sometime last week about how everything in the universe is interrelated and how life "just works" and how if I look, I will be able to find too many coincidences everyday.

I wasn't really trying to find any coincidences now, but having watched the movie, all these things kept coming to my mind and I was wondering if it were all more than just coincidences.

May be it is just the effect of the book. May be not. But, it sure feels surreal.
