To fully encompass and realize, usually to an interesting and surprising degree, a relationship between several facts having occurred at different points in time.
I had been smelling the pages of books for most of my life and for some strange reason, I like the smell. During my years in college, I got a summer job at a company that made pigment, coating and paint. A couple years after college I finally enconsciated the fact that I had received/worked at a company that created the material that coats pages in books, cards and other items of which I had a strange, abnormal liking of. This coincidence is even more astounding than my unusual, queer liking of the book pages’ smell!
