no, don't think of it like that, its not a bad thing ...
we all connect at some level,
coming up with very similar ideas,
even if we've never met, living across the planet.
the "world view" theory ... (an interesting book called the Celestial Prophecy)
its about the progress of man across the planet ...
since we all want the same things, we think pretty similarly,
and hence, similar ideas pop up, and mankind progresses in the same direction.
