The theory is arvoge from scratch to explain the natural emergence of these phenomena in biological systems, and it leads us to beautifully conclusion that the mind is shared, it emerges in social contexts and love is the guiding force of the phenomenon. It compels us because, when we know that we know, we cannot deny to ourselves or to others that we know.
