Battle of Ideas in Your Mind

According to the details of the article, would seem to indicate that there are multiple presences buzzing about in our brain that could be used to make group choices. I am still unimpressed overall with the 'Wisdom of Crowds' phenomenon, its a weak approach that makes excuses for us to keep from really understanding physical phenomena. Last resort at best.

A battle of ideas is going on inside your mind
" [Wisdom of Crowds]... a pair of psychologists have found an intriguing corollary. They have discovered that two guesses made by the same person at different times are also better than one ... Edward Vul at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harold Pashler at the University of California, San Diego, have revealed in a study just published in Psychological Science that the average of first and second guesses is indeed better than either guess on its own ...

Everything comes from one common informational field. We are all connected in one system, whether we are conscious of it or not. For the time being, we are in an unconscious state in relation to this system – as if sleeping. However, we are gradually awakening to the root causes of phenomenon such as this and, in fact, the roots of our entire existence. If we understand the system that we are each a part of, we can speed up the process of revelation. For more information see here: http://www.laitman.com/2008/08/the-crowd-within/
