The problem of other minds

Talking of conscious minds ,is there anything that happens between two conscious minds? For example ,how do we make an eye contact with an anonymous somebody in a crowd when almost simultaneously we become conscious of each other ?I have often observed this when we pass by perfect strangers on the road when the process of “meeting the eyes” becomes almost simultaneous ,as though the other person is already aware of my existence in his line of vision.

I believe there is somewhere a process of sharing consciousness when in a mutual space ,which keeps happening all the time as though the plane of existence in which the other person lives intersects briefly my own through the process of eye contact.
