Three Degrees of Separation?



I am sure you have heard of the oft-quoted "six degrees of separation", that claims that we are all inter-connected in some way by the figure "6".

Well, cop this.

Yesterday, I got my boss a book for his birthday present. It prompted a viscerally characteristic and hearty laugh from him about the utility of the book. It was one of those esoteric books on spirituality, which he is wont to like and read.

It turns out:
1. another work colleague had suggested him checking out THAT SAME book a few weeks ago from another bookshop;

2. a family friend of his had PROMISED to buy him THAT SAME book late last year...;

So, in what I can only classify as the case of Three Degrees of Separation, there I go buying him THAT SAME book.

Coincidence or something more arcane??

I think "six degrees of Kevin Bacon" is amusing. I can get there in 5!

I don't know much about separation theories (maybe I should read the book!) but... I have to say sth about your illustration. I've been mildly obsessed (mildly, my foot) with crossword puzzles lately. I go to bed and solve them in my sleep, and I wake up to find them, in multiples, in unexpected places -- words interlaced with words, right angles, rigid sets...
