* In the final episode of season 1 of ''Anime/GhostInTheShell:StandAloneComplex'' the Major argues that simple curiosity is the factor that keeps the individuality of people from becoming consumed by increasing synchronization of cyberbrains. [[spoiler: This is particularly relevant coming from her at that moment, since she just spent some time cruising around the cyberbrain web as a bodiless soul to avoid an assassination attempt. There was a very real chance that her individuality could've been overwhelmed by other minds without a body to anchor her.]] Of course, this being Ghost in the Shell, the topic is complicated. Certainly, more than a few people get killed by accidentally discovering conspiracies after investigating a few strange irregularities.

* In Creator/CSLewis[='=]s ''[[{{Narnia}} The Silver Chair]]'', the character giving advice was himself only a small percentage of the time, and seemed insane when he's actually giving the right advice. But at least there they had the literal WordOfGod to guide them onto the correct course.
