  • This is a video and separate article speaking of a super-organism and a fine example of hive mind. This seems kind of scienc-ey, but that is the root of many a good horror idea even when it is not obviously so. The idea that many individuals work as a single organism of like mind and in perfect harmony is both creepy and awe inspiring, and doesn't take much of a push to be much more horrific without losing that beauty or awe. The article also brings this kind of horror into the technological realm--from our perspective anyway--as well when considering machines and software capable of this. Such horrors might include being forced into such a collective, or intelligent paranormal horrors capitalising on the benefits of such an external symbiosis, or the power a nefarious conspiracy wields using these tactics.
