|apiconscious (n., adj.)|
|Applies to||systems, system functions|
Quinn/Milou/Luan/Theo describes it as follows:
Apiconscious systems can have highly individual members, but will act mostly as a collective, to the point where each facet/fragment/headmate isn’t really distinguishable by the naked eye. They will do this especially when important decisions have to be made.
The inspiration for this comes from honeybees because of this article and other things.
Apiconscious systems may best be described as a hive mind, a swarm intelligence, or a collective consciousness.
