Have you heard of the “theory of synchronicity”? Neither have I, but, apparently it states that all the events that take place are somehow connected to one another, regardless if they’re relevant or not. So for example if you share a birthday with Donald Trump – that’s … something great, I guess? Numerology, horoscopes and all that BS – it’s all connected!
Let’s explore these 9 connected historical events that will surely mess with your head.
1. The current oldest tree on Earth was already a thousand year-old timber when the last mammoth roamed the planet. Bristlecone pines grow in the white mountains of California and are said to be over 5000 years old.
2. When Jack the Ripper murders occurred in the East End of London, Nintendo was established, and the Eiffel Tower in Paris was still under construction.
3. The first steam train was invented in 1797, but the bicycle was patented only 21 years later in 1818.
