The Freedom of the Collective and the Freedom of the Individual Are Equal
The whole of the body exchanges thoughts and sensations regarding each of its organs. If the whole body thinks that a specific organ should help it, this organ will immediately know that thought and provide the contemplated participation. Also, if an organ feels that the place it is in is narrow, the rest of the body will immediately know that thought and sensation and move it to a comfortable place.
However, should an organ be cut off from the body, the body will no longer know the needs of the separated organ, and the organ will not know the thoughts of the body, to benefit each other. But if the organ connects to the body as before, the organ and the body would once again know the thoughts and needs of each other.
