It is useful to have some things happen at once. Nature allows laughs and kisses and orgasms and dinners to be simultaneous.

I liken it to the occasional reports we get along the lines of, "This just in, Universe a gazillion times bigger than currently thought." Always leaves me feeling a little more free for some reason.
