Steve scrit: >I have a sci-fi background anyway, and "mentaro" suggests "hive mind" to me. Not really. mentaro would be a mento-grupo, but a hive mind (as in the borg of Star Trek) would be a grupo-mento. It's no longer sci-fi though - a large proportion of the public is becoming a hive mind. For example, anyone who believes the official fairytale of 9/11 is already part of a hive mind.
