"To think is to differ" Clarence Darrow "The free man is he who does not fear to go to the end of his thought" Leon Blum "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man" George Bernard Shaw

    Words, the ecstasy of nuance and diversity
    Project: Polytopia


    Groups and collectives come in an abundance of variety; they poetically coalesce into the migrating forms through which we see ourselves and the images we apply to make sense of our world

    Brood

    1. The young of certain animals, especially a group of young birds or fowl hatched at one time and cared for by the same mother.
    2. The children in one family.



    Flock

    1. A group of animals that live, travel, or feed together.
    2. A group of people under the leadership of one person, especially the members of a church.
    3. A large crowd or number: had a flock of questions.

    Horde

    1. A large group or crowd; a swarm: a horde of mosquitoes.
    2. A nomadic tribe or group.

    Throng

    1. A large group of people gathered or crowded closely together; a multitude.
    2. A large group of things; a host.



    Host

    1. An army.
    2. A great number; a multitude.

    Crush

    1. A great crowd: a crush of spectators.



    Drove

    1. A flock or herd being driven in a body.
    2.
    1. A large mass of people moving or acting as a body.
    2. A large body of like things.


    And… Mass, Multitude, Ruck, Legion, Swarm, Congregation, Collection, Array, and Bevy and Bunch, Cluster, Lot and party, Press, Band, Gang and Slue, School, Pack and plain Group


    And some are combinations which should have appeared inconceivable unless they were so meaningful, like: A crowd of two, A flock of one, A Solitary Multitude
