7.4 – THE GENIUS FACTOR (11.21.14)


Washington, D.C. February 14, 1876. A lawyer representing Alexander Graham Bell hand-delivers a patent application to the U.S. Patent Office for what Bell describes as a “harmonic telegraph” a device that can transmit vocal sounds. However, Bell’s is actually the second patent filed that same day for what later becomes known as the telephone.

“Alexander Graham Bell is generally credited with inventing the telephone. It’s interesting to note that a man named Elisha Gray seems to have invented a similar device right about the same time that Bell did. Bell’s invention involved speaking to one piece of equipment that was not connected to the part that allowed one to hear. Gray’s device involved those two pieces being connected and in fact, that’s the way telephones work today.”

How is it that two inventors came up with the same revolutionary idea at the exact same point in history? Such a patent had never been filed before anywhere in the world, and yet two are filed on the same day. Could this be evidence that there really is an Akashic Record, a universal mind that certain people are able to tap into? Bell and Gray each charged that the other had stolen his ideas, but there is no dispute that both geniuses had been independently developing the concept of the telephone for years. This amazing story is not unique. In fact, independent simultaneous invention happens surprisingly often.

“Throughout history, there’s been this odd phenomenon of multiple people discovering the same thing at about the same time, even though they are separated and they don’t know what the other person is doing.”

– Robert H. Frisbee, Ph.D.
(Propulsion Systems Engineer, NASA JPL, Ret.)

In 1922, two Columbia University sociologists, William Ogburn and Dorothy Thomas, published an academic paper entitled, “Are Inventions Inevitable?” Their research found at least 148 instances of simultaneous inventions in which the creators knew little or nothing about their rivals’ work.

“You had Wallace and Darwin both independently coming up with evolution. And you had calculus independently discovered as well.”

– Diane Hennacy Powell, MD (Author, The ESP Enigma)

“There’s multiple people who discovered oxygen. There’s multiple people who invented the periodic table. It’s a very surprisingly common phenomenon.”

– Robert H. Frisbee, Ph.D.
(Propulsion Systems Engineer, NASA JPL, Ret.)

Ogburn and Thomas concluded that if the geniuses behind many inventions had died at birth, their discoveries would not have been lost to history. Others would have made similar discoveries at about the same time.

“We often have the expression that an idea that’s about to be discovered is in the air. Some concept, some experiment. It’s just sort of in the air. Little bits and pieces are floating around and someone just has to bring all of that together to make the new discovery. Now, it has been suggested that maybe it is somehow physically in the air. There’s some sort of information that the human mind can tap into to make something like this happen.”

– Robert H. Frisbee, Ph.D.
(Propulsion Systems Engineer, NASA JPL, Ret.)

Is it possible that the collective knowledge of the Universe what some call the Akashic Record is embedded in the energy that is all around us, and that those we call geniuses are the handful of individuals who have the greatest access to it?

“What’s going on here? These are complex abstract thoughts. We are not talking about something that you’re just going to come up with at random. Some would suggest that it’s just a collective unconscious, that it’s some sort of impersonal mind that we’re all sharing that’s doing this. But there is also the interesting idea that there is a deliberate effect being enacted here. That extraterrestrials are working through us to implant certain ideas and concepts, so that we fit onto a timeline of prescribed human evolution in which certain discoveries happen at certain times.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

Could simultaneous inventions be more than coincidence, more than the fact that inventors are working from the same basic technology? And if so, are there otherworldly beings pulling the strings using the Akashic Record to reveal information to humanity’s geniuses when it fits their timetable?

“So, it may be that as these academics and inventors are all working on similar problems and inventions, then suddenly, yeah, they all tune in simultaneously to that little bit of knowledge and piece of information that they’re all missing and they all find it. And it’s all because they’re tapping into this universal mind and tuning in at a time when it’s just right and we’ve been taken right to that level and we’re ready to pluck that little apple from the tree.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

If extraterrestrials really are using the Akashic Record to transmit wisdom that is shaping the course of human civilization, what is their agenda? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answer can be found by exploring one of the most important innovations of the 21st-century.
