Then what?

If we really can get to that one exact piece of information, how is it that somebody else was looking for it as well? Do we all really want the same thing? True, many of us are looking for that same Holy Grail; too many of us still think we can find a Fountain of Youth; rather than reading a road map, too many of us expect to stumble upon a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Though psychologists may promise us that we all want to find the same thing, I'm not sure that they were thinking along the lines of internet searches. Of course there must (still) be an awful lot of people out there who want to find a picture of Pamela Anderson, but I doubt that in a case such as this they would be overly concerned with finding one exact photo. Most of them are pretty much the same.
