DNA sequences that are close to each other along a chromosome are more likely to be inherited together. So there is a correlation between closeness and likelihood of being transmitted to the next generation of cells and organisms. If 10 people are standing close to each other in a line and water is thrown at a single person the people standing closest to that person are more likely to get wet.
