What really matters is how smart the collective brain is.

Imagine what you'd need to do if you had to create your own reading light to read a book tonight?

Fascinating (as Ted always is) here is a talk about innovation through collaborative thinking... ideas that are born of many other ideas. Or as British author Matt Ridley puts it, what's happening is that "ideas are having sex with each other."

An intersting take on how society is as it is...

Trade is older than farming. Exchange caused specialisation. Does lack of exchange reverse innovation?

So we, society, are neurons in a bigger collective brain. Another exmaple of the spiritual wisdom that tells us we are part of the whole. A part of the matrix of totality.
