How do two or more people, strangers to each other, work on the same problem and reach the same conclusion simultaneously? Very often, each discoverer will accuse the other of copying their work, when in reality each did not know that the other was working on the same project. There are many cases of such simultaneous discoveries.

British biologist Sir Aleister Hardy believes that animals develop a group mind and that all species can be linked by a cosmic mind to transmit information through space. Rupert

Sheldrake, a biologist, agrees with Hardy. They cite examples of monkeys washing sweet potatoes to get rid of sand. First, the monkeys on the island of Koshima practiced it. After a few months, the monkeys on another island without contact with the previous ones, also developed the same habit. Sheldrake says that rats that have learned to run a maze pass this knowledge on to rats in other laboratories. How do you test this theory? His proof is that rats from other laboratories learn the trick in a shorter period than before.

He calls this concept “morphogenetic fields” and believes that this ability is similar to the simultaneous discoveries that several people make in different areas of the world, but I believe that the human mind is the link. Our minds transmit information to rats in other laboratories through various places, including contact. When we see monkeys on one island, we think “why don’t those on the other island do the same?” and this information travels to the monkeys on the other island. The process consists of accelerating our progress from an earthly being of limited knowledge to a heavenly being with a broader knowledge. This progress must be made step by step. So nature looks for prepared minds and two or more people realize a problem and work on it. The problem is solved independently and often simultaneously. Next, there are some examples.


JJ Thomson and Charles-Francois de Cisternay DuFay independently discovered electrons. DuFay thought there were two types and called one glassy electricity and the other

resinous electricity. (The English physician William Gilbert introduced the electrical term from the Greek word “electron” for amber because amber would acquire a special character of

attract or repel metallic objects when rubbed on fur).


The Wright brothers in the United States and Richard Peers in New Zealand developed the aircraft at the same time. Richard Peers flew two years before the Wright brothers, but he was a loner and never published. The Wright brothers came to the same result without knowing Peers’ work.


The jet engine was developed simultaneously by a German engineer, Paul Schmidt, and a British engineer, Whittle, from RAF College in Cranwell.


When Hermann Oberth was advising German warlords on liquid fuel for long-range missiles, Robert Goddard was working on similar fuels in the United States.


Lord Kelvin in England and George Robert Kirchhoff in Germany discovered that each element produced its own spectral lines. Using this system, John Lockyer in England and Pierre Janssen in India identified, at about the same time, the yellow spectral lines of helium in the sun.


Edwin Hubble (1889-1950) in the USA, Abbe Georges Lemaitre (1894-1966) in Belgium and Willem Sitter (1872-1934) in the Netherlands developed the theory of the receding universe at the same time.


The C ring around Saturn was discovered in 1850 by William C. Bond (1789-1859) of the Harvard Observatory and two weeks later, independently, by WR Davies in England.


In 1846, JC Adams of the University of Cambridge and Urbain Joseph Leverrier (Luh-veh-ryay) of the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris independently calculated where Neptune would be found.


Soviet physicist Vladimir Isifovitch Veksler and Edwin Mattison McMillan in California independently devised the “Synchronized Cyclotron” at the same time.


Regardless, Luria Salvadore Hershey discovered viral mutations.


EMPurcell and Felix Bloch independently developed nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to study the interior of living organisms without damaging the tissues that X-rays would cause.


JHDJensen and Gopper-Mayer independently discovered “semi-magical numbers” (stability of atoms containing 28 or 40 layered protons).


Godfrey Hounsfield, an electrical engineer working for a private company in London, and Allan Cormack, a physicist at Tufts University in Boston, developed the cat scanner (computed axial tomography) independently at the same time. When connected to a computer, it will scan and enlarge a tiny area and make it easier to diagnose the condition. In October 1979, these two scientists received the Nobel Prize for inventing the cat scanner.


William Hampson in England and Karl von Linde in Germany independently liquefied air on a large scale in 1895.


Both Newton and Leibnitz discovered calculus independently at the same time. However, Newton did not publish his work. He developed this system to calculate the gravitational force of the sun and solve the revolutionary elliptical trajectories of the planets. About 10 years later, when Leibnitz wrote to Newton, Newton responded by saying that he had already worked out that system.


Charles Darwin (1838) and Alfred Wallace (1848) worked independently on the theory of evolution. When Wallace was in Indonesia, he had a malaria attack and decided to transmit

Without delay a thought came to Darwin’s mind. He wrote a letter and mailed it the next day. When Darwin read that letter, he was surprised to see that Wallace’s findings were very similar to his own. (Darwin had not published his theory) In Wallace’s letter, Darwin saw confirmation of his own ideas, although Wallace was trying to convey his belief that an activity

of the spirit permeates the universe.

Hugo De Vries from the Netherlands, Karl Erich Correns from Germany, and Erich von Tschermak from Austria studied Mendelian in plants without knowing that the other two were doing the same or that Mendel had done the work. In a final review of previous publications, all three came across Mendel’s article. All three were published in 1900, each citing Mendel’s article and giving Mendel

full credit for discovery, posting his own work as confirmation.


The fundamental principles of television developed independently in Germany, England, France, Scotland, Russia and the United States during the 1920s. Sawyer in the United States and Morris Leblanc in

France proposed a quick scan of a scene line by line to build an image. Baird in England and Jenkins in the United States independently achieved long distance transmission of an image.


Joseph Henry (1823) in the United States and Michael Faraday (1831) in England independently found electrical induction. Each one posted a few months apart.


Sir Chandrasekhara Venketaraman independently discovered the Compton effect (the light scattering effect of molecules) before Compton. This discovery helped in the study of the molecular structure.


Incandescent filament electric lamps were independently developed by Sir Joseph W. Swan in Great Britain and Edison in the United States in the late 1870s.


Lorenz and Fitzgerald independently discovered the Fitzerald contraction of objects due to speed. Michaelson and Morley did an experiment to decide if there is any difference in the speed of light due to the motion of the earth. They were unable to detect the difference due to an error in their research. The mistake was the speed contraction. The length of a foot will become 6 inches if the ruler is traveling at a speed of 161,000 miles / second. At the speed of light 186282, the contraction will be total and the length will be zero in the direction of travel. Lorenz proposed the same theory independently. Therefore, it is now known as the Lorenz-Fitzgerald contraction.


Weller and his co-workers at Harvard, Parkman and co-workers at the Walter Reed Army Research Institute in 1961, working independently reported the isolation of the rubella virus and its

successful growth in cell cultures.


In 1870, Robert Koch in Germany and Pasteur in France independently discovered that a bacillus was the cause of anthrax.


Batista Grassi in Italy and Ronald Ross in Calcutta worked on the life history of the malaria parasite at the same time.


Bernigaud Chardonnet in France and Sir Joseph Wilson Swan in England patented the same rayon development process a few months apart.

Julius Lothar Meyer in Germany and Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeliev in Russia simultaneously discovered the periodic table of chemical elements.


Stereoisomerism was discovered simultaneously in 1874 by Van’t Hoff in Holland and Le Bel in France.


MJ Schleiden and T. Schwann from Germany independently formulated the cell theory, viz. that all living matter is made up of cells and that each cell is an independent unit although

cooperate with each other.

Edme ‘Mariotte independently discovered Boyle’s gas law and added that the temperature must be constant.


Hennig Brand and Boyle independently discovered hydrogen and phosphorus.


Newton’s law, that force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the body to its center of rotation, was discovered independently by Robert Hooke.


Nathanial Palmer in the United States and Bellingshausen in Russia charted the Antarctic area at the same time.


In 1907, LAH Baekeland in the US and James Swinburne in the UK simultaneously patented Bakelite (phenol-formaldehyde plastic)

There are hundreds and thousands more of such simultaneous discovery cases. They will fill many volumes. When the time comes, the Universal Being sends the project to everyone so that whoever is ready can work on it. This shows that God wants to reveal these secrets to man. Not all human beings will reach the almighty level at the same time. Each one receives the knowledge according to his ability. Everyone has their freedom to receive or reject.

How is it possible that two or more people in different places are working on the same topic and getting the same answer? Is it purely accidental? Such widespread accidents! Certainly not. There is an unknown force that directs all the events of the universe. Since we cannot see, we say there is nothing.
