concatenate (verb) (of events) to be linked together as in a chain.
When a series of events, related to one another, take place, they concatenate. The fall of Nazi Germany in World War II, the formation of the NATO and the Soviet Bloc, the Cold War period, the fall of the USSR, all these events concatenated, as though they were ordered by some outside force. That is, this series of related developments in the history of the world, forming a chain of events, concatenated.
- Herman's buying an about to be closed down business with a meager investment that he was capable of, his gradual earning of profits, his divorcing an un-understanding wife, marrying an heiress, and becoming still richer - all these events concatenated in a period of six to seven years, making him very happy.
- Coincidences in life are not rare. Just as Nelson thought of becoming a CEO of a company, he had an offer of a job from a prosperous company, soon rose to a level of its VP, then its President, and finally its CEO - all the events concatenated to fulfill his desires.
