Individual cells are living freely in the forest, finding food, dividing, resting in the dirt, when they detect a signal. Maybe water is scarce and relocating is easier as a group, so they begin to bunch together. Soon they fuse to form a multi-celled organism called a slime mold. The question is: how did the signal that called them together originate?

Individual human beings are living freely in houses, eating food, having sex, watching videos in bed, buying things online, when they receive a signal. Maybe their consumer culture is threatened and they would feel safer if they kept others away, so they begin to hold meetings. Soon they form a multi-person organization called a political party. In our case we know that the signal to band together originates from the Headmaster.
