Ah! A coincidence almost right off! Yesterday I did some reverse speech voice
analysis on "Pastor Gregory"s archived sermons at: One thing he repeated in reverse was
the curse, "God damn!" whenever he said forward, "my body." His memeset is
obviously *incongruent* unconsciously......(this could start a whole different

analysis we are now able to check them to see.
