"By the word ÉGRÉGORE, as used by the ancient hermeticists,
I mean a group of humans endowed with a personality different
from that of the individuals forming it. Though studies on this
subject have, in the past, been either obscure or secret, I believe
it is possible to understand the conditions necessary for the formation of an égrégore. I would point out immediately that the indispensable (though not sufficient) condition lies in a powerful emotional shock.
To use the terminology of chemistry, I would say that synthesis brings about intense energetic action."
-Pierre Mabille from Égrégores ou la vie des civilisations
