re: #18 Pavlovian Hive Mind
Anything that is not building a brick wall might be heard/viewed as “woo”.
ALL religion, psychology, philosophy and sociology can be heard/viewed as “woo” by non practitioners. You calling something “woo” (said another way, it has no value for you) just means you are probably not involved in it.
Using the word “woo” as you are using it is woo actually.
The universe could be said to be “woo”. So what.
