#conceptNo mention

Originally an occult concept referring to “a non-physical entity that arises from the collective thoughts of a distinct group of people”Wikipedia

, it can also be understood as denoting a Meme, focusing on the meme’s point of view and agency in Cultural Evolution.

As a more specific description of a meme, the Concept of the egregore might be a useful Scale-free Abstraction, while egregores themselves might become vehicles of collective Sensemaking:

Can we learn to think with our egregores? … Maybe egregores are … the birth pangs of a new kind of collective intelligence?Brander (2022)

Our task then would be “to construct new social networks that generate egregores which are friendly toward humans”.ibid.
