: A couple days ago, I started reading a facinating book titled "The Lucifer Priniciple." One theory the author has is that of the "Super Organism." The idea being, social groups are actually organisms and we are nothing more than its equilvalent of cells. Many of the authors ideas seem strange, perplexing, and complicated, but they all seem to be well researched and backed up with ample evidence. In his introductiong, he says his objective is for readers to "read and think" not "read and believe." I found this comforting, if this label was attached to the bible, how much thinking and believing would go on? Regardless, I highly recommend the book for people on this forum even though I'm only about 100 pages into it. Should be in the science section of the bookstore, near all those Hawking books. Authors last name is Howard.

: H _____ The different "scales" of organisms. The universe is an organism within an another living organism. There are infinite scales and all containing each one within the other. We have to view ourselves with the universe, et all, holistically. The scales are only different...I believe. On that note, "Super" is contextual.
