5 % law

There is such a notion called auto synchronization. It is also called “The 5% law”.

First this process was recognized in ancient Egypt. The core of the notion is the following: if 5% of members ofany community do the same action, all other majority of the society begins to repeat this action.

For example, if you frighten 5% of the calm horse herd, the whole herd will run away in panic. If 5% of the fireflies family accidentally flashes at the same time, the whole family will start glowing.
