Experiment in collective cognition :

people in a circle. Start with one calling out loud the first of a
series (know to him alone) of numbers. The one next to him does
the saying of the second number with his own chosen series.

What will the numbers look like ?

Totally chaotic ?

Or partially ordered ?

If the experiment is repeated with everybody remembering his series, then
the same number will come forth.

Several minds produce chaotic series as perceived by any one mind.

The order is hidden for whom is not looking ?

And don't forget to keep the ketchup and the chocolate as well. Thanks.

And salt, and citrus fruits.
