Parsing the Python

Just realised a nuance of the individuals gag that I’ve not highlighted before – I’ve focused on the “individuals” bit..

(You know the clip, I’ve used it loads of times to explain the “Illusion of I” – how it seems that each of us decide on our own, but in fact are largely influenced by those around us, without us knowing).

Brian: “You don’t need to follow me, you don’t need to follow anyone…you’ve all got to work it out for yourselves…

It’s the followers and the following – those willing to be influenced – and NOT the Influencers we need to focus on if we want to have any “influence” over the behaviour of folk.
AMEN (again)
