New discoveries and ideas happen in clusters

Have you noticed how the same new ideas and inventions emerge simultaneously, even though the creators are strangers and haven’t shared their workings?

  • The same movie in Hollywood comes out.
  • Medical discoveries from different scientists on different sides of the globe
  • Fashion and clothing styles
  • New tricks in sports

We see patterns, and we piece them together. There’s synchronicity with strangers.

I think 2020 disrupted that synchronicity with less travel and in-person pollination of ideas. I wonder what is born after the last 12 months of digital calls, lockdowns, and no travel. What ideas has covid impregnated into people’s brains and what we are working on right now that will blow us away in 2022?
