What is Zeitgeist ?

Do the zeitgeist refers just shared ideas and common collection of knowledge and trend in any domain at certain period of time?
Or it refers to some mysterious spirit of time ?
Mostly zeitgeist is invoked to explain parallel inventions in science,arts,culture and religions.
Do parallel inventions require extra explanation other than the conventional one?
