Why we want coincidence
All these stories above are incredible yet all of them looked at mathematically are not that uncommon all of them as determined by Mathematicians are not an anomaly. However that is not the point they seem incredible to us because we want order in a world full of chaos. How come we see 59 68 13 5 27 9 as normal lottery numbers but we see 1 2 3 20 30 40 as "special" or unusual even though both scenarios are just as likely. That is because people look for meaning in a coincidence where sometimes there is none. But that is what makes a coincidence the fact that it has meaning to us.
