"What is Truth?" Alternativly, what is art? I wasn't trying to put
you're .sig down when I made my little joke. I think that what I
was trying to say is that memetics is not necessarily holy. It is
a human creation, and as such will contain errors. The distinction
between art and tasteless jokes is non-existant, because they can
be the same thing. When you study your science of art, just be sure
that you keep in mind: "Sometimes, you're wrong."
