Mike you just reminded of something similarly spooky read and re-read a few days ago - "Humanity is bigger than any one individual, and it seems to have collective purposes of its own that individuals cannot easily detect, let alone grasp as a whole." It wouldn't have resonated with me in a 'New Age' publication but that was written by a mathematician and a biologist; the Profs Stewart and Cohen in The Collapse Of Chaos, at the end of a sub-chapter on 'Culture' - human or others. Am still trying to figure it out. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
