A lot of people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidents and things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice of coincidence that lays on top of everything. Give you an example, show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate of shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, "plate," or "shrimp," or "plate of shrimp" out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconsciousness. And then you hear that some guy has just run out of the Whole Foods Market in the South End with several plates of shrimp, 'round 9:25 p.m. And he's done it before.
UPDATE: Per Thomas J. O'Leary, the shrimp man was captured.
