Are our minds connected to one another? Some phenomena people point to for evidence of this include telepathic experiences and psychic abilities. We all know what it’s like to know what a friend is going to say right before they say it. But there is an entirely new field of evidence that exists which gives serious credence to the idea that our minds are connected at a much more intimate level than ever imagined.
This may seem like a far out idea, but is it possible that our thoughts create fields of information that go into the Global Mind we share? What if consciousness is not created in the brain, but is received by the brain in the same way a cable box receives satellite signals? Is it possible our thoughts might create “thought fields” that can interact with the thought fields of others?
There is a fascinating phenomenon in science known as the “multiples effect“. The multiples effect is when multiple people geographically isolated from one another come up with the exact same discovery at the exact same time. People who have absolutely no communication with one another come upon the exact same discoveries and inventions at the same time, often not realizing that their idea has already been recently presented to the public by someone working on the same problem.
By 1922, there had been 148 major scientific breakthroughs identified to have been discovered in such a way. Here are just a FEW major examples:
– Evolution (Darwin and Wallace)
– Calculus (Newton and Leibniz)
– Decimal fractions – 3 people
– Sunspots – 4 people in 1611
– Law of conservation of energy – 4 people in 1847
– Steamboat – 4 people
– Telescope – 9 people
– Thermometer – 6 people
Here are some discoveries which are a little more recent in our times:
– Endorphins were discovered independently in Scotland and the US in 1975.
– The J/ψ meson was independently discovered by a group at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, headed by Burton Richter, and by a group at Brookhaven National Laboratory, headed by Samuel Ting of MIT. Both announced their discoveries on November 11, 1974. For their shared discovery, Richter and Ting shared the 1976 Nobel Prize in Physics.
The list goes on and on. Some of these discoveries not only happen within the same general time frame, they happen on the exact same day. Can this be attributed to just sheer coincidence? It seems highly unlikely that people, especially ones living hundreds of years ago, would just so happen to stumble upon the same things without even being in communication with each other. Here is a list of all the reported multiples in history.
Imagine two people completely geographically isolated from each other working on the same problem at the same time. They are each intently working on the same exact dilemma, with their thoughts floating around in the consciousness field filling it with data and information which is now more easily accessible to people who desire to solve the same mental problem. The idea of consciousness being a non-local field that we all share is one which is getting some serious attention by people like Dr. Amit Goswami, Dr. John Hagelin, and Dr. Michio Kaku.
But this is not only an effect seen within recent scientific discoveries. Below is a picture of pyramids build in three separate ancient cultures geographically isolated from one another. There is no possible way these cultures would be able to communicate with one another, yet the pyramids they build are exactly alike.
