Good example. She looks more like Level-T to me. She believes objective
reality and that the world is rational, predictable, intelligible. She uses
"conscious-introspection" to get closer to the Truth. Yes, she is Level-T.

Level-H knows everything she knows, but he goes around and says "why are you
people so concerned with Truth? Who cares who is right, let's just do
something different, something more appropriate to Level-3. Let's do some
magic... or let me program your neurons..." And when people look at the
magic -- he achieves his goals, for example clearing the world from level-1
chimps or other lower levels (or races). Level-H is an interesting meme.
We can use some "conscious-introspection" to learn more about Level-H. It
may become quite USEFUL.

There is no Absolute Truth, although we are getting closer and closer to IT.
