Gérard for me is a bit like Jung's syncronicity
https://www.amazon.fr/Synchronicity-Connecting-Principle-C-Jung-ebook/dp/B00CDV19J0
To Jung, synchonicity is a meaningful coincidence in time, a psychic factor which is independant of space and time. This revolutionary concept of synchronicity both challenges and complements the physicist's classical view of casualty. It also forces is to a basic reconsideration of the meaning of chance, probability, coincidence and the singular events in our lives.
