The whole is just the sum of parts.

It’s been a while I didn’t write on this blog, I will try to be more active from now on. I return to the subject that always hunts me the most: Self-referential systems, strange loops, super-rationality. I recently watched the movie Cloud Atlas, and fell in love with this scene: 

“- And for what? No matter what you do, it will never amount to anything more than a single drop in a limitless ocean.
– What is an ocean but a multitude of drops?”

It fits perfectly with the same idea of that the whole is just a sum of the parts. And in the same philosophy of super-rationality: If everyone else does the same way as me, how the world will look like? If every drop of water decided to leave the ocean, will any ocean exists?
