hive mind refers to the method in which the homogenous culture has been agreed upon. it's thusly more of a description of manner and approach than end result. the end result would be the culture. so a bunch of conformists parrots may all take their views from one person (hive mind) and the end result is a religious, conservative stew with limited desire to discuss dissenting opinions (the culture).

Ah, I see! That you very much for that excellent response, it clarifies things greatly for me and makes complete sense when spelled out like that if you think it through.
