I too have noticed that the "any system of conflict is contained
in a system which contains both the conflict and the causes of
the conflict" meme has begun to pop up in my musings. Perhaps
just passively reading your discussion is enough to create a
'halo effect'. This might indicate that this meme is a
particularly virulent one. Or, it might indicate that Tony's
memcology and mine are similar, and thus we both have a weaker
immunity to certain types of memes.

Take your pick.
