yes, could be participating in this next stage of information diversification, spreading, and even creation (1 + 1 > 2). Not that I subscribe to the Gaia concept, but it feels like we are active "neurons" and "neurotransmitters" of an evolving "superbrain". We are still very far from full development as we feel or are disconnected from the rest of our environment. But even that stage of separation was probably necessary so we could develop our specific human features to interesting levels. When we bring this back to the rest (provided that we don't destroy ourselves in the process), this "superbrain" (or consciousness ?) will move on to some further stage.
All we are doing now (artistic activities, economic exchanges, etc) are just natural processes within a larger dynamic design. Whatever it takes to interact, even if we argue or screw each other, the idea is that this brings new complexity levels via expanding networks (of any kind) that add up in this ever evolving design. Just like a brain: first new neurons are created then interactions and bridges between them are intensifying and getting more and more complex.

I was just laughing a bit about it. I don't think it is specifically American to operate in this way ;)
