Part II: Tandem Acts of Kindness

Transcript

Narrator:At the lowest level most minds are a combination of competing units, be they cells, silicon chips, or something else entirely.
Narrator:From this competition a gestalt arises. It's like a wave-form that, maybe from a distance, looks like consensus.
