ring for a long time to come.

This is something I’m really trying to wrap my brain around – the stuff in quotes came from Robert laughlin in “A different universe” – the rest is my interpretation of it. The idea that the laws that govern how water molecules getting cold start to crystalize, grouping up together to form a solid – or light ‘particles’ join together to form wave patterns – is the SAME thing that people do in lar…ge groups – we behave one way when alone, but in groups, we behave different, as if the group has a mind of its own. And it does — the new ‘brain’ that emerges – mob mentality, groupthink – is following the same overarching rules that govern any self-organizational system – fish forming schools in the ocean, etc. This is a ponderable that will keep me pondering for a long time to come. “
