    Hi Tom, My name is Pablo J Derbez, im from Mexico City and i live in Montreal. I am not a scientist however i am passionate about it and try to get to know of it as much as i can.
    So i had a parallel thought to this experiment, When driving my car i often can know who will let me pass in front of them or not, example if im driving on a narrow two way street, i can figure out what the driver in front can and will do, not only because of their speed and position on the street but i happen to believe that we communicate with other drivers around us. In futuristic films we can see cars driving at raging speeds, cruise controlled by the computers of the cars, however i think that in our mind we have the power to plug ourselves to a collective mind and being capable of such feats. Thank you for reading and keep up!

    Dear Pablo,

    Thank you for your observations. While driving I often find myself strongly coupled with the car in front of me, to the extent that I actually have to concentrate so as not simply to automatically imitate what they are doing. Surely there are many more ways in which we are coupled together. So I would agree with you that the traffic system is larger than the sum of its parts.

    All the best,
    Tom
