What kind of reply is that? I've obviously not convinced you but then it's up to you to reason why I'm mistaken and I can't see any reasoning in your post to challenge what I wrote. At least I'm making an effort to explain my views and I'd appreciate it if you could do the same instead of becoming what seems to be like personal.
What I wrote is what I replied to you last time we had this dicussion, unless I'm mistaken and was replying to someone else but I have expressed the micro/macro view several times.
Why is it difficult to understand the concept of collective consciousnesses? Psychologists don't have a problem with this concept, they call it group or crowd psychology.
