Thought for the day #2

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 thinking 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 looking for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness. - Miller, Repo Man

It's a joke quote - I thought a nice juxtaposition with the heavy Nietzsche. The next line in the movie is, "You eat a lot of acid, Miller, back in the hippie days?"
