**Coincidence** is the effect of quantifying the degree to which two events are said to be uncorrelated in causality. Many real effects are often dismissed as just a coincidence, when really there is a possibly hidden or unrealized link between the two.

Coincidence can be expressed as a raw probability or as an adjusted quantity, which is measured in Stans ():

The probability of rolling a number between 1 and 6 inclusive is or (0 Stans). The probability of 10 people rolling the same number is or (38.5 million Stans).
