     Is it possible that thought is contagious?  An idea spreads just like a disease?
     Ever been in that situation when someone at the office comes up with a simple, yet effective way to handle a problem and they tell someone about it.  Soon almost everyone in the office is using that method, except for a couple of standouts.  Think about the path something like that takes.  First to a new person, then to each of those people share it with someone and so on.  Doesn't the vector follow the same kind of distribution as a cold or the flu? 
     And it can also work with bad thought.  Things are not going well and someone mentions a idea and it spreads.  Rumors and misinformation also follow the same path.
