Book chain

Anybody else ever have that thing happen where books you read one after the other seem to have strange random connections? E.g. the first one has a bit with two big birds attacking the narrator. The second one also has a bit with two big birds attacking someone; also, its main theme is... matter always reconfiguring again in the same ways? The one you read after that starts with a quote by Engels about how matter always returns to the same shapes or something... etc.

Happens to me all the time, and sometimes it's really strange. Several books sharing several characters with the same names; or tackling the same theme *and* the same time period... I should really write all these coincidences down... I think the longest chain of that sort I ever encountered was something like five or six books long. I don't remember the actual links, though.

That sort of thing does happen to me, but it's not always just books. Like. Similar questions on quizzes, that have no business having similar questions (i.e. different channels, etc). Or sometimes I'll think about a song I haven't heard for ages and then I hear it a lot on the TV or while I'm out (so obviously things I have no control over).

TL;DR: YES.

That Engels quote sounds interesting. It makes me think of fractals, from what you've said here.
