In the News (from ScienceDaily.com): “’Scientists Discover Tipping Point for the Spread of Ideas.’ Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society.…
“An important aspect of the finding is that the percent of committed opinion holders required to shift majority opinion does not change significantly regardless of the type of network in which the opinion holders are working. In other words, the percentage of committed opinion holders required to influence a society remains at approximately 10 percent, regardless of how or where that opinion starts and spreads in the society.”
My Comment: Kabbalah says that society is like a vessel (spiritual Kli), consisting of 10 parts (Sefirot). Thus, the tenth part of society becomes its unit, and less than 10 percent is not considered a part of it.
If this part acquires a single desire, it becomes the main part of the structure (Malchut), which absorbs in itself all the properties of the other parts (the first 9 Sefirot), not connected between themselves, attracting and using them for its fulfillment.
