But the behavior varies in similarity while their stimulation does not. Clearly they are each controlling their own behavior separately, even though the degree to which their stimulation from the outside world does not vary separately. If the internal conditions were sufficient to allow their control strategies to diverge, then they should not re-synchronize again and again constantly. Each difference should build on each other, like two slightly different fractal kernels wouldn't weave in and out of perfect synch all the time, they would follow completely anomalous paths. The fractals might look like the are exploring different patterns (if even that) but it seems like they would not keep going back to isomorphic patterns at the same time.
