RE: Combining minds for more horsepower
I worked as a pharmacist's assistant during high school and college. There, one can readily observe hypochondria. Hypochondria is something that affects just about everybody sooner or later, hopefully only temporarily.
I've had it myself for a short time, so I recognize the pattern. Many prescriptions in a typical pharmacy are sold not to truly sick people, but to people who are excessively worried about their health, fretting and fretting. Women get it more often than men, but probably all men experience it sometime. For example Napoleon in his later years.
Hypochondria is more common in a person's life when they have time to think, occuring much less frequently in busy manual laborers.
Some doctors have practices that are comprised to a large extent of hypochondriacs. Some hypochondriacs visit doctor after doctor after doctor. Hypochondria is a large factor in the medical profession all over the world, for the past hundred years, even back in the time of Dickens and Tolstoy, and for as long as man has been an emotional animal.
The emotional ranting and raging... what is it? It is the inadvertant loss of reason.
