Coincidence or Murphy’s Law – If anything that can go wrong, it will, then it should have given you ample time to prepare for every possibility.
There was time, but no preparation.
Thus, when a series of coincidences paralleled and came to the point of unision, the parallels collided and things went wrong.
At the point of unision there was chaos and the parallels separated to continue as single paths.
Will those single paths become parallels and cross again? Difficult to say, but they might.
So, better to prepare for the day when the singles might become parallels again. And parallels might convege to a point of chaos. Because when they do, chaos will occur till they converge and continue as parallels.
