Divine, Magick or Logical Fallacy?



FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION...AN ANECDOTE.

JOURNAL ENTRIES
Thursday July 25th...Had a dream, entered a tunnel.  Light at end of tunnel started to fill darkness in the form of a thick, white, smoky fog.  The shadow of a large predator cat approaches...
Friday July 26th: ...friendship issue...waning moon turns focus on study, cleansing, and aura stabilization...
JULY 26TH TO JULY 30TH
Out of the ordinary reports of multiple synched digital times 10:10, 11:11 and 1:11.  An increase in astral movement or peripheral hallucinations take place regardless of banishing rites.
Tuesday July 30th: ...prep for individual observance of Lughnasa.  A private rite dedicated to Sekhmet Egyptian Lioness Goddess of destruction is formulated to observe and memorialize life events of the past year; their destructions, purifications and rebirths... 
Thursday August 1st: ...(the friend from issue 7 days prior) posts having seen a mountain lion in the wild yesterday as an ecstatic, spiritual event... 

IS IT A DIVINE MESSAGE?

Meaning a spiritual or energetic source alien to my material existence but, still somehow interwoven intercedes to bring forth a synchronistic event as a message to assist in a major life event.

IS IT MAGICK?

Meaning that the synchronistic event manifested as a result of my own or the friend's conscious and/or subconscious will.


IS IT A LOGICAL FALLACY?

P1:  I dream of a predatory cat.
P2:  I had a friend issue.
P3:  I formulate a rite that honors unions and severances of the past year and dedicate it to an Egyptian lioness Goddess.
P4:  Friend reports seeing a mountain lion in the wild as life altering experience.
C:   The events are not causally related however, have elements that are too similar, are timed too close together and are too rare to be explained as coincidence therefore, they have been brought forth by a force that is personal and can mold observational reality. 
A common logical fallacy coined as the "Texas Sharpshooter." is used to explain how a series of premises could be grouped to formulate a false conclusion.  The "Texas Sharpshooter" gets the name from a scenario where someone shoots a series of shots and paints the bull's eye around the group of shots. 

MY CONCLUSION.

Yes.  All of the above.  A,B, and C.  As a Hermetic, I have to consider that all of the above are true or at least bear a fraction of truth.  I also have to consider that all of the possibilities have not been fully explored.  The ALL is infinite and my mind is finite and it reminds me of the formula of ARARITA and the analysis of the keyword as they point me to the conclusion that my narrow perception of what  a series of events definitely "mean" seperately should not be the focus.  The focus, IMO, should be on accepting the series of events as a sort of symbolic poetry, interpreted but not limited by interpretation.  A poem or art of life manifested to be used for my benefit should I choose to do so.
Hope you found this useful
