ser-en-dip-i-ty: luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for. Merriam-Webster
Is it about being in the right place at the right time? Does that truly exist? Or do our choices and decisions merely correlate to then become predetermined coincidences to our past thoughts to prove we are heading in the direction we chose?
How closely is an epiphany related to serendipity?
At what point do we just say fuck it and open ourselves up to vulnerability to see what exciting circumstances we can get ourselves into? Do we desire the unknown for entertainment?
Or is it we are simply connecting dots from daydreams that have perked our interest more than once? Do we instinctively put ourselves in these situations that might lead to the results we have envisioned?
Does concurring fear lead to epiphanies?
Can serendipity or epiphanies happen in any setting other than a selfish view? Can it happen between two people on the same subject at the same time? Or is that what we call love?
Does deja vu play a factor? Does a sense of comfortability in an unfamiliar setting help persuade our ability to perceive new ideas and new thoughts? Is that how we open ourselves up?
You tell me.
