Well, speaking a meme into existence is a good first step!

Nonsense. I accuse you right now: you're not either!

Look! The definition of Level 3 is not complicated; it's just that it
doesn't make sense to a Level-2'er. There's a mind mechanism that has
not yet been developed in the Level-2 mind. It has to do with flexible
modeling, position shifting, and consciousness of purpose. The Level-2
mind thinks about this for about 3 seconds, then goes into
distinguish-and-discard mode, mapping it onto some poor excuse for a
Level-2 analogy and producing all the contradictory "definitions" of
Level 3 that have been "bandied about on the list." Cut it out!

Do you know what a "meme" is?
