regarding option processing: you may be interested to know that there is a [highly criticised] scientific basis for such coincidences of discovery.
when lagrange's theorem (a subgroup divides a group) is applied to information and intelligence, out pops from the maths the simple but startling conclusion that any discovery must be made simultaneously by several individuals.
so you're not alone :)
read it more carefully: i state that when lagrange's theorem is APPLIED to information and intelligence and discoveries, where "the group" is "all knowledge", then it logically follows that "all knowledge" must be divisible by a "subgroup" - "some knowledge".
consequently, we can conclude that "knowledge" cannot be "discovered" by only ONE person, it must be "discovered" by MORE than one person, or that it isn't actually a discovery at all.
