The phenomenon of swarm behavior is eloquently expressed in flocks of birds. At a distance we observe how a flock moves as a singular unit while subtle turns of individuals can reverberate and create drastic changes. Within the human flock we are bound to social and cultural movement while maintaining a sensitivity to our individual experience. This is both humbling and frustrating, existing as a miniscule element of a whole while being trapped within an individual awareness. Once we recognize our role as small parts of a whole we can "eat" the anxiety surrounding identity. In the spirit of the goat, we can be both defiant and accepting of our lost identities in the swarm.
