Agreed- like the OP and I said, you can't deny these "co-incidences" occur. I posted about a week ago in IM because even at my early stage things happened which to my mind were beyond co-incidence. I was amazed. I think what the OP's getting at is that you can't deny these synchronicities occur, but how you explain it is then a leap of faith. Some will leap towards the LOA theory, others towards science and the way the brain works- i.e. ignoring the mystical or unproven elements. Some are stuck in between. The point is that even after experiencing things, it's still all intellectual until at some point you decide to make a leap of faith regarding your explanation of events.
As for the OP's comments on SBI, I'm not surprised more SBI is being seen. It's one clever MLM scheme. The end result will of course be self-destruct- it always is when the crowds all run the same way. It's funny- you know the way they tell you to find a niche area and find your voice. It reminds me of the Kleeneze catalogue scheme we had in the UK (still have). Agents were told to find niche streets to deliver catalogues and build relationships with their clients, especially in areas where another agent operated. Many, many losers in the end, but at the start everyone thought it was great and they were "helping" each other by recruiting them into the business. So yes, we will see more SBI- Ken Evoy is one clever bloke!
