Well, yes, but doesn't everything? While GEB has a nice, coherent thesis
behind it, and one can view MT as just a collection of essays, I'd say read
MT first -- it'll expose you to a wide variety of memes in a short time,
tho certain themes are repeated. Not to mention MT has the rules to Nomic,
which is always a bonus.
