And because we also share *many* other hobbies is it OK to sell all of them
as memetics? According to your classification, Tim, is "Level-3
breakthrough": memetics paradigm, Life 101, mental masturbation, philosophy,
drug experimentation, queen's pussy, or all of the above?

David, I truly appreciate your hanging in with us. The reason you feel
attacked is that you are on the verge of a Level-3 breakthrough and your
Level-2 mindset (ego) is turning its defense mechanisms on full bore. I
believe most of the participants here appreciate your honesty and
rationality and simply want to share the value of the memetics paradigm
with you.
