Life Is But A Dream: The Science of Coincidence with Bernard Beitman, MD

In this episode, author and psychiatrist Dr. Bernie Beitman (aka Dr Coincidence) discusses his research on coincidences - those unusual, attention-getting, seemingly meaningful experiences we all occasionally have - why they happen, what they might mean, and ways to increase the likelihood of having more of them.

Dr. Bernie Beitman is the first psychiatrist since Carl Jung to systemize the study of coincidences. In our conversation, Bernie shares:
  • An overview of the research he’s done on coincidences
  • The “weird coincidence” survey that you can take
  • Why coincidences are actually not unusual
  • Why they happen
  • When they’re likely to happen
  • ‘Self-observer’ concept
  • The role of curiosity and introspection
  • Pattern recognition
  • The meaning of meaning
  • Synchronicity
  • Types of coincidences
  • Looking for coincidences that aren’t there
  • Positive expectations
  • How to increase the likelihood of coincidences
