What's the Word????

What's the word for when you hear about something once and then shortly afterward hear about similar things and/or the same thing.

Damn it, I know I know the word...

Like today, I heard the word "ouroboros," I didn't think I knew what it meant, but it was referring to the serpent eating itself, so bingo, I learned something. Then I went to the BadWolf section in Wikipedia (recieving a few nasty spoilers in the process as I am only as far as "The Doctor Dances" on my TiVo), then clicked the link for predestination paradox (a concept of which I am quite fond as may one day be revealed) in there, a reference to the Red Dwarf episode "Ouroboros" and a link to be clicked and voila, the serpent eating its tail.

Whew.

Now if only I could remember that other damned word...
