The brain of community

Learning, memory, creation happen in community. In the brain these move in the synapses, flows, rhythms and pulses—the brain of community. Memory is stored here, learning takes place between us. Meaning is only what is agreed. There! That color: we will call it blue, but how do I know what you actually see? It might be what strikes my eye-brain as red, or green, or something we have no word for. Only in our agreement in community we put a word on it, blue. That limits no experience, but opens us to it.
