“Bulk Apperception”

"By groping toward the light we are made to realize 
how deep the darkness is around us."

— Arthur Koestler, The Call Girls: A Tragi-Comedy 
Random House, 1973, page 118

"Dear boys — We’re going to have some fun, aren’t we?"

— Maeve in "Westworld," Season 1, Episode 6,
     after her "bulk apperception" has been upgraded
     to the maximum.

"Bulk apperception" is defined in the script as "basically,
overall intelligence."  The phrase is apparently unique to "Westworld."

These two words do, however, nearly  occur together in
at least one book — Andrew Feffer's The Chicago Pragmatists
and American Progressivism
