That's even a well known phenomenon. A lot of times a joke, story etc springs up at various places in the world independent of each other in a response to the way the world is.

Before Viagra actually became a real thing there were jokes about a pill like Viagra going horribly wrong springing up all over at least the US in different states from people who'd never met each other.

Both The Matrix and Thirteenth Floor have a similar premise of not realizing your living in a digital world but that right there is where the similarities end.
