Slightly wrong mental thinking - but coincidental

I sat down this morning, and my mind somehow turned to the French Revolution that I learned about in high school and I started to think about that one guy who killed all those "enemies of the state" by guillotine, only to be declared an enemy by the state himself and then beheaded - being the last person killed in that mess.

I couldn't think of his name, but the name "Voltaire" came to mind. I couldn't remember what the killer-french-guy's name was, but the name "Voltaire" did pop into my head, and I wondered. I then thought a bit about electricity and voltage.

Anyway, why is it such a big deal that the name Voltaire came to my mind even though I can't for the life of me remember the name of the guy I was actually thinking of?

Well, I was just looking at my AuthorHouse report, to look for sales, and then I went to AuthorHouse's facebook page to find today's post says "French writer, philosopher and historian Voltaire died on this day in 1778"

So - that was interesting. I still can't remember the name of the french guy who did all the killing, but the name of a French writer came to mind, and all of the sudden I find out that today is the day he died!!!

Wow. I'm not sure that this was telepathy, I don't think this was telepathy - I'm not sure how to define what it was. It was just a name that's important on this date popping into my head. Hmmm.
