From Knowledge Federation
To see why our global collective mind and its various parts leave ample room for improvement, imagine a man who is walking toward a wall. Imagine that his eyes see what is happening, and try to alert his brain by publishing research articles about it. At the same time, this man's motor cortex is absorbed in watching the TV news on his iPad – spectacular events where life and death are being decided, but unrelated to his own situation. The legs of our man, being left on their own, are somehow ruled by the contents of his pockets, that being the only thing close to them enough to impact their behavior.
