Getting from I to We


Some of this is pretty simple ... and it's not just in the way I'm going to say it. 

If you state a fact, and I agree ...  then to us that is a fact, not just to you, and to me separately.  

This works the same for feelings:  If I feel in a special way towards that and you feel in that same special way towards that too,  then WE are feeling that same way ... and its not just me feeling and you feeling. 

This gets more interesting as the number of people increases.

And as you may expect it works for deeds as well.  When we are doing the same thing, it gets done, regardless of whether you or I could not have done it alone.

this may be strangely related to a discussion about consensus science on G+

incidentally a coincidence of timing happened here as i penned this item just a moment before i read Daniel Bos's comment.  I usually don't make too much of these coincident ... er, unless they really pile up ... then i have to watch out.

Some wonder if science is consensus - it's not.  Others make up a science about consensus to study it.
Seems a bit incestuous to me.


well thing is, you cannot even start to play the scientific method without zillions of presumptions being agreed upon.  most people just accept most of those assumptions to be beyond question.  most people are not even aware that they are assumptions that our culture has already agreed upon.
