Jorge Silva on horizontal structures and participatory culture at 10Pines

And they start collaborating with each other, and they let the other one win - they win one time, and then they go back. And then with that, the points start to raise like 20 poi...more

Because we evolved, as far as I understand the literature, we evolved to live in small groups of people that collaborate, to share resources for the wellbeing of all, that's what we evolved for.
