Isn't the two pictures above are the same thing?

Someone corrected the second by re-drawing the point at the word "DOUBLER" to clarify the wires are not connected.

That person is me, i want to understand whether that point is connected or not.

No. It is not.

The two drawings are both correct and are the same because there are two commonly acceptable ways of drawing circuit diagram.

They just drawn differently but both are correct.

One can place a curve over the crossing of two wires that are not joined or just draw them crossed, without placing a dot at the junction.

Edisonthk- suppose for a moment that point is connected. What is happening to the 5v power source?

I'm sorry as I still a amateur to electronic circuit, I'm no sure whether my thinking is true or not.

I think that the polarity of C1 and C3 will be disrupted instead of changing in power source.

Your looking too deep, follow the current path from the source. (hint, it's much shorter now...)

The current will flow from the source and straight away back to the source without going through the tripler circuit?

Correct! it would have created a short circuit!!
