And in response to Memeset #0:

Memeset #1

I disagree.

I carry the meme "1 + 1 = 5". But I don't believe it, because in my head,
the meme "1 + 1 doesn't equal 5" strongly outcompetes it.

I carry both of those memes, but I don't often transmit the "1 + 1 = 5" meme
(except I have done twice in the last 3 minutes).

Memeset #2

Now then, I'm stuck right now for any other memes to make Tad-model transmit
that disagree with those memes, there are no memes in my head yet which come
close to outcompeting Memeset #1. I'd better go for a memetic seethe...
we'll see if anything comes up.

If you mapped memespace onto a 2D plane, then made a 3-D graph with
Activation Level as the vertical axis, and animated shots of the graph over
time, it'd look like the progress of some crazy Hokusai ocean.
