Okay, sure, whatever, Tad. Dis is whats it is an' dats all what it is.
I'll agree with you on that (no need to start a WAR after all). With this

Perception and subjectivity are the lens we use to view reality. And,
just as in Astronomy, we can either spend the rest of our lives squinting
at the heavens and theorizing, or we can work on refining the lens, moving
it to places with less distortion (as with Hubble) or tuning it to
invisible frequencys (Radio Astronomy). I think an understanding of
Memetics is equivalent to understanding light refaction in this analogy.
Not an end in itself, but a means.
