The subject of the first sentence is the word 'results'. Not that I ain't
gettin' confused as well....

But you're right- the aim is to disprove the theory- now- Popperian
falsification aside, (my personal view is that it is too narrow, but I
ain't a philosopher...), if we fail to disprove a theory, we increase
it's validation.

I think we're both on the same page.

To forge on- where is technology here? A player? An adjunct? The
experiment itself? The theory itself?

Do we have any experiments for memes yet? We have some definitions, but
there are definitions for ghosts too....

It is towards this end I hope to move....
