Episode 319 What are the odds? In this week’s podcast, Dr. Bray dives into serendipity and coincidences. The brain seeks out consistent patterns and craves control of situations to better understand the world we live in. We wonder whether things occur based on random luck or if something is actually “meant to be.” Listen to this week’s podcast and decide for yourself whether or not you believe in coincidence and serendipity.
QUOTES BY DR. BRAY
“We are a meaning-seeking species. We process events in light of what they mean to us.”
“We are a story-telling species. The brain’s language centers around having a natural proclivity for coherent stories. We assign meaning and significance to these stories.”
