I don't think the 'level-# mind' theory is necessary.
In fact I think its sophistication\generalization border with Newspeak.

I disagree. "Newspeak" is a tern that has been bastardized by
journalists for years. It is part of a "danger" invoking meme. "watch
out" "Big Brother is here and now"... etc.

Orwell's Newspeak was a conspiracy to leech the imaginative expressions
from language by reducing it to pure utility.

If Level three were meant to replace the words "Imagination",
"creativity and all the other words in the thesaurus that realate to
them, I would buy that it was NewSpeak.
