Sometimes, when I am downtown walking late at night (Yes, I live in a town of 300,000 people where it is safe to walk alone late at night), I will stop at a red light and just stand there. There is no traffic, there are no cops; but I will stand there obeying the traffic regulations. I am not timid; I just like the fact that the traffic system works! It is a moment of aesthetic satisfaction; I savor the immense intricacy of the social co-operation involved!

Maybe I just have a hive-mind? ;\)

Anyway, other times I just walk across the street against the red light, without a second thought --- so I guess I am not completely a zombie!
