HILL: Trouble so often comes when like-minded scheme in groups of three. Less poetic: Something ‘weird’ happens when three like-minded people get together on a plan. Maybe it’s “stupid” to the lowest common denominator but it’s something more, like emergent properties of a system. They think of and do things they’d never do or think of alone or in pairs. But in three? Watch out.

Interesting take. I think it’s true what you say – and it’s one of the reasons why I don’t believe most conspiracy theories are realistic.

But, I dunno. It’s a phenomenon I’ve seen in little things. Groups of people walking down the street. One or two would never be a bother but as soon as there was three, they get some kind of strange additional power.
