Well, I took him to mean that practically everyone will join, that the
number who don't will be small enough that the group mind will be where it's
at; the serious intent behind my comment was that if someone who abhors this
idea is that easy to find, there'll likely be substantial numbers of people
who don't so choose. If there are also substantial numbers of people who do,
that's fine with me; once we get off this planet we'll have a universe
plenty big enough to allow diversity.

My eternally made point is that you can do both:  if you truly
