"Thus, everybody is quite free. It’s not like a mob where the collective mind takes over –not at all. It is something between the individual and the collective. It can move between them. It’s a harmony of the individual and the collective, in which the whole constantly moves toward coherence. So there is both a collective mind and an individual mind, and like a stream, the flow moves between them. The opinions, therefore, don’t matter so much. Eventually we may be somewhere between all these opinions, and we start to move beyond them in another direction –a tangential direction –into something new and creative." from "On Dialogue" by David Bohm, Lee Nichol, Peter Senge
