A flock or frequently looks like as if it was one unique organism. From field observation of soldier crabs we find that directions of individual transitions are usually not aligned, and that inherent turbulence in the frontal part of a swarm positively contributes to form a swarm. We implement these empirical data by a model of which anticipation and memory drives move of the agent. Parallel processing of feedback and feed forward can be found in a model of body image and body scheme, which reveals that a swarm is also a united body resulting from co-creation.
