* The State in Jack L. Chalker's ''WellWorld'' series, in an AlternateHistory where the [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp Soviet Union never fell]], and [[DirtyCommunists Communism]] became the default human government, tries to make this a reality on many of its more "advanced" planets, engineering humans in [[DesignerBabies Birth Factories]] to be physically flawless but mentally ant-like workers and on some worlds even hermaphrodites, so everyone's equal.

* The TheyMightBeGiants song "The Bells Are Ringing", whose lyrics deal with mind controlling bells that organize people into a single mind. A girl tries to resist by putting cotton in her ears, but at the end, "As if by hidden signal/The people turn to face her/One thousand eyes are staring/They pull away her earplugs".

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': This seems to have been the true motive behind creation of the Titans, as Pixis said that if a sufficiently powerful enemy appeared, humanity would stop fighting each other and live in peace. Reading between the lines, it's pretty clear that [[spoiler:the first Reiss Coordinate had the same idea.]] Didn't work.

This trope refers to a common plot by [[VisionaryVillain the villains]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist with a cause]], wherein they reason that all of humanity's problems and unhappiness are caused by people being separate/different from one another, and so try to forcefully [[IndividualityIsIllegal eliminate the differences and individuality]] of everyone by merging everyone into one mind/body/soul/etc.

* A ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' comic explored the consequences of the [[EvilutionaryBiologist High Evolutionary]] kicking all of the humans, superhumans, and mutants in the MarvelUniverse into their [[GoalOrientedEvolution most highly evolved]] state and uniting into a single being; instead of achieving TheSingularity or AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence as the H.E. had hoped, it/they essentially destroyed the universe and left the High Evolutionary [[AndIMustScream stranded forever on a timelocked Earth stuck outside of reality]]. Oops.

* Apparently, Pete Townshend wanted to manage this with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifehouse_(rock_opera) Lifehouse.]] That's right, kiddies - the lead guitarist of The Who wanted you to '''''die of joy''''' at the end of "Won't Get Fooled Again". Luckily for us, the attempt to realize this [[CreatorBreakdown drove him nuts]] before he could pull it off.
* Russian composer Alexander Scriabin spent the last 12 years of his life working on a musical work called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mysterium_(Scriabin) Mysterium.]] He planned only one performance of his work, at the foothills of the Himalayas. It would last seven days, and would lead to the end of the world and the replacement of humanity with purer forms.
