I try.

While the whole level thing is a poor excuse (IMHO) for a balanced
analysis of intellect, and structuring same is an insipid exercise in
categorization (racism is more like it), there still seems to be a
energetic system within the brain which can be analyzed analogically.
Whereas I think there is a quantum leap aspect throughout all 'levels',
much like the bouncing electron leaps from one state to another, I do not
attempt to define these levels, although some degree of approach to
reality seems to be involved, such that the more involved energy state of
an engaged brain yields a truer working map of the situation it finds
itself in.

Problem is, the shaman, the con-man, the priest, the scientist, et al.
can hold equally large maps. And cultures are still making the roads. And
our eyes are still the headlights.

To a life without memes!
