Over the course of the Yeti Collective and in pursuit of answering some deeper questions I decided to share some philosophy.
When I speak of the Yeti collective I must clarify. We do not forfeit the “I”… the “ego”. There is no attempt to say each voice is equal or or pretend we are one. Only that we ‘are’ and that we ‘do’ individually. I know that I could never live long enough to master glass blowing and steel work- so to team up with an equal makes sense to me. I have in effect a knowledge of the craft because I have known the man. I have seen the consequences of collective thinking, ours is no compromise. We are a library of adventure stories. Testimonies of creative thinking not collective. Each chapter being it’s own animal… having it’s own shape. Our reasoning be our own, and this is mine. To surround myself with greatness.

“But the mind is an attribute of the individual. There is no such thing as a collective brain. There is no such thing as a collective thought. An agreement reached by a group of men is only a compromise or an average drawn upon many individual thoughts. It is a secondary consequence. The primary act–the process of reason–must be performed by each man alone. We can divide a meal among many men. We cannot digest it in a collective stomach. No man can use his lungs to breathe for another man. No man can use his brain to think for another. All the functions of body and spirit are private. They cannot be shared or transferred.”-Howard Roark The Fountainhead
