It's amazing how all the threads on this list revolve around "Mind Acquired
Immune Deficiency Syndrome", a newly discovered meme-virus "MAIDS".

The MAIDS virus attacks self-esteem and binds a person to a religion,
organization, political party, or company in a slave-like relationship.
Historically it played a positive role in societies' survival, as it made
room for one or a few leaders with many (infected) followers.

It even seems that evolution has developed a part of human's mind as a
receptor for the MAIDS virus.

MAIDS can be acquired in early childhood and cause an infected person to be
obedient to "higher authorities" (which usually parents are the first
impersonation of). A MAIDS victim is not capable of independent view of
reality. Reality is not what it is, but what others say it is. "Others"
may be parents, teachers, priests, bosses, shamans (or shamen) etc.

There are three stages for the MAIDS virus to take over ones mind:

(1) Implant a doubt in ones own ability to perceive reality.

(2) Get one to accept the existence of a Higher Power.

(3) Follow.

Symptoms. A MAIDS infected person will say things like:

==>All ideas are dinky little memes.

==>Level-3 is a state of being you are not able to grasp, but I know some
people in Seattle who are Level-3ers. (That was before Richard discovered MS

==>Context, not defiitions, determine meaning.

==>There is abnormally high emphasis on the notion of "reality" or "existence".

==>There exists a higher unknowable world.

==>We are a bunch of dingbats, in the sense that we're infinitely ignorant.
(Speak for yourself! The last four revelations come from David R. recent post)

As with AIDS some people appear to be immune to MAIDS.
What is their secret? How MAIDS can be cured?

Fortunately Planet TeTa scientists are working on it. Any volunteers to
join the research group?
