That information is all around you, all the time. But if you’re not wired up to perceive it with a focus that opens you to it, you’ll think it doesn’t exist.
It is supposed that a region in our brain, called the reticular system, is responsible to react to stimuli, once properly activated. It is supposed that this is how a parent can wake up at the sound of his kid at night.
I tend to believe that our perception of the outside world is indeed very related to the state of mind we are into and our near past experiences. For that reason, I strongly believe in the idea of bootstrapping our brain so that it can react more easily to stimuli that fit our higher horizons of focus. I tend to call that guided serendipity.
Also, the habit of saying yes to new stuffs is another way to increase the likelihood of serendipitous outcomes.
