Rob, you are as usual very much correct on this. Collective consciousness, universal mind or my preferect "term" common reality are very important concepts that transcend the individual perception and his/her personal reality..

Maybe it is easier to describe this by looking at the smaller and simpler groups of what I call group reality. Some examples, include, afinity groups, families, gangs, cults, religions, etc, etc..

I suggest that understanding how the "collective mind" works in smaller groups maybe a better way to try to understand the big super set which is the overall collective consciousness or common reality...

Crowd psychology is an amazing display of how someone's personal reality temporarily changes when in a group! I've also noticed significant changes when someone moves from one particular group to another and, here in the USA, that is best noticed with bilingual people with different cultures and/or backgrounds moving from setting to setting or group to group. It is almost like they become different people!!!
