Some guy on a computer, he figures something out, and then almost simultaneously a bunch of other people all over the world figure out the same thing. They did this study, they isolated a group of people over time and they monitored their abilities at crossword puzzles in relation to the general population. Then, they secretly gave them a day-old crossword – one that had already been answered by thousands of other people – and their scores went up dramatically, like twenty percent. So, it’s like, once the answers are out there people can pick up on them. It’s like we’re all telepathically sharing our experiences.” from the movie Waking Life, 23:51-24:50
