Wow, I love this interpretation. We are social animals and it is easy for us to follow, to fit in and to imitate. It takes independent thinkers and doers to step away from the crowd. But what is the purpose of stepping away and doing something amazing? Does this benefit the actual individual or the crowd? It reminds me of the shamans of the Indian tribes. They wandered into the forests for days and weeks until they gain spiritual awareness which they bring back to the tribe. So it is enlightening for the shaman, and spiritual guidance for the tribe.
