What can I say Tad, I'm sorry. I have just finished Virus
of the mind and I think I follow Richard's analysis and share his
vision. As much as I would have liked to join you and David in your
sometimes witty atacks on Richard and level 3 (especially after you
posted that Joke about the albino/black sheep that made me almost
choke with laughter on my spliff) I must decline. As I see it
memetics is the science of art. Actually I really like that
writebyte I think I'll use it in a sig. file.
Nonetheless before I follow Richard's orders, strip naked,
paint myself red and streak through buckingham palace screaming
"I fear I must eat the Queen's pussy or else we shall all
die, memetics is a way to empower ourselves"
I would dearly love to carefully evaluate your most
carefully thought out and lucidly explained refutation of his
position, that goes for David Rotseider as well.
Let me say how I see things at the moment. My computer
speaks to me and I to it, it's called Dereck btw (there is a silly
reason which viewers of only fools and horses might guess). I
suppose Dereck is the nearest thing I ever have had to a god, yes
Dereck is my God. That is simply to say that "prayers" can be heard
and "answered" ( Hey I never would have expected my God not to have
told me to fuck off yet but apart from a tiny repremand for sexist
implications my god has so far been extraordinarily polite even if
some of God's answers have been a bit surreal.) My god is very
wise, and very well informed (although I still dont completely
believe anything God says without checking it out.) God has a good
sense of humour too, I think it comes in part from the Pape gland.
God sometimes has elegantly crafted semantically dense and
curiously resonant metaphorical discourse, sometimes controlled by
the Danplantery region. An extrodinary powerfull rationality is
mediated by the McFazden hormones from the pancritiatic gland,
which I believe is also the seat of the soul of God. Drakir's
bassoon is another important area as is the evacarl- stream which
houses the precious feminine qualities as well as certain syntactic
structures I think.
There are far too many to mention unpronouncable names that
contribute invaluable information to me all the time (the
profftimartzkonsler to name but one example.) Obviuosly this is a
gross simplification in no particular order and all areas
contribute to all functions at all times. No area is infallible and
some areas seem to just switch off for periods of time.
However I did not expect God to have such a schizoid
personality. Just as I begin to formulate a clear picture of what
God is telling me (from all areas not just the Brodie's cognac) as
regards the new paradigm of memetics for analysing culture. Just as
it starts to make sense desenting voices seem to attack almost
everything, they are voices I cannot and willnot dismiss because at
times they make sense and at other times no sense (in my dreams I
dreamed that tad had translated Virus of the mind into Polish, is
this so?) Exactly what is it they are trying to say?
Please explain to me Tad, David or anyone else for that
matter. (I've ordered the red paint and I'm meeting Micheal Fagin
next month, also I've bought the mouthwash for afterwards.).

I enjoyed writing this and you are at liberty to respond in
the same spirit but also could you give me a response in a simple
easy to understand style. I will translate this entire message into
such a style thus...
...Exactly what is it that YOU think Tad (or anyone else)

The world is like a ride in an amusement park
and when you choose to go on it you think it's real
cos that's how powerfull our minds are
and the ride goes up and down and round and round and it's got thrills
and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's fun for a while...
some people have been on the ride for a long time
and they begin to question, is this real? or is it just a ride?
and other people have remembered and they come back to us and they say
"Hey dont worry, dont be afraid ever, because this is just a ride"...
...and we kill those people.
"Shut him up we have a lot invested in this ride, shut him up
look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account
and my family this has to be real"
Its just a ride, but we always kill those good guys
who try and tell us that, have you ever noticed that?
and let the demons run amuck.
but it doesnt matter because... it's just a ride
and we can change it anytime we want, it's only a choice
no effort, no work, no job, no savings or money
a choice right now between fear and love...
the eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors,
buy guns, close yourselves off
the eyes of love instead see all of us as one.
heres what we can do to change the world right now to a better ride
take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year
and instead spend it feeding clothing and educating the poor of the world
which it would many times over not one human being excluded
and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever in peace.
