What have you seen about societies in general that might indicate humans desire collective consciousness?

  1. A desire for peace.
    The Golden Rule (“do unto others as you would have them do unto you”) is the closest approximation to collective consciousness that I can think of. Only a small minority of folks have ethical systems that would conflict with what most people think to be proper etiquette, morality, etc.

  2. Quite time in Germany and Korea.
    It is an unspoken rule in S. Korea that when you ride the train your are quiet. This is not posted but it is a fact. Most people who talk (if they talk at all) are in Americans.
    In Germany, it is a law that at certain times of the day no one may use lawn mowers or loud machinery. Automobiles are fine for transport.
    In some parts of the US (Like the South) most people are taught manners and courtesy ie opening doors for women and people behind you. Blessing you after you sneeze etc.
    In Arab countries God is part of life. Religion is not separate from state. Religion usually is the state.

  3. Governments/religions! It is governments/religions who look to make all think the same, take away individuality, for the sake of total control and the sheeple/asleeple allowing it to occur.

  4. OK, I guess I’ll be the only person that doesn’t respond with a Wonder Bread answer. Hmm, collective consciousness eh?!
    1)Next time your in public…take out your cell phone. For no reason, just take it out, look at it, and hold it open. Then glance up, look at the people around you…guess what their doing?? Pulling out their phones as well in response to your “showing off”. Chimpanzees have the same behavior.
    2) This “Us vs. Them” mentality (at least in the U.S.)
    This subject is too broad…every society has the collective consciousness. I fear that most “intellects” feel that its an indicator of advancement or intellegence to not share this sentiment of a societial bond. When in fact, biology proves otherwise.
