I think he's declaring his independence from the ideological orthodoxies he
percieves on virus. Unfortunately he seems to have missed our earlier
thread that indicated that perhaps there is no "me" or "you." If it's true
that we're all integral, irremovable parts of the cosmic whole, then,
sadly, we cannot leave him the fuck alone. That's the sucky thing about
sembiotic relationships - he's stuck with our wisdom and perspicacity, and
we're stuck with his pleasant disposition. Ain't interdependence grand?? ;-)
