Coincidence Caused Conundrum

I have been working on a bitty project for some time now.  It is nearing completion, and I will give you all of tiny hint in a definition of a word:

Coincidence

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Coincidence occurs when something uncanny, accidental and unexpected happens. The word is derived from the Latin co- (“in”, “with”, “together”) and incidere (“to fall on”). In science, the term is generally used in a more literal translation, e.g., referring to when two rays of light strike a surface at the same point at the same time. In this usage of coincidence, there is no implication that the alignment of events is surprising, noteworthy or non-causal.

A coincidence does not prove a relationship, but related events may be expected to have a higher index of coincidence. Probability is the basic tool, or method, to rationally evaluate coincidences. In the field of mathematics, the index of coincidence can be used to analyze whether two events are related.

I have a little more to do, then a lot of writing, then I will bring you something that is interesting, verrrrry interesting.
