This model is based on Joshua Epstein’s (2001) model on development of thoughtless conformity in an artificial society of agents. This model is based on spread of horizontal norms in a horizontal society of agents. Esptein’s (2001) model showed “that individual thought – or computing – is often inversely related to the strength of a social norm. Once a norm is entrenched, we conform thoughtlessly”.
