    I don 't deny that either, but that ain 't the thing I was after ! I am fighting the assumption that the bias HAS to be a common one. IMO, maybe it is too hard to comprehend, what commonly is seen as collective is the way by which the evolution of a singularity went up. Everything in nature tends to be (the) getting better/ best. Our course to take this, that this is done along lines of consensus, deliberation and consultation for granted has led us away of what really matters in nature_ the singularity of whatever kind from whereout the evolution of the object/ subject can begin.

    The idea is to get from the Big bang as singularity to the Universe, from one cell to multiple celluar organisms, from one single idea to the complex state of a memeplex, from one seed of one tree to the whole of the forest which eventually will grow, from the one single hut to the houses in the town.... from singular to plural that is the way evolution follows.
