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.
