A public key doesn't have to

A public key doesn't have to be transmitted to be known. It's public. I really don't get how both private keys cannot be the same, therefore, in my mind they are the same and they had to have been transmitted somehow. It even says in that article what I said. The data can be brute force attacked with public keys, then you can get the private key and decrypt. If you manage to get the packets that contained the encrypted private key, then you can do anything. It just takes computational power. The public key is generated long before the exchange, so someone who is sniffing all traffic ever, like the NSA, can easily decrypt things instead of needing to brute force stuff.
