Damn, I blew the mumbo-pocus quote too soon!

Wade, do you realize that what you are doing is studying an experience?
The effect of a meme is hard wired to the experience and emotions that a
person associates with the meme. You are effectively trying to remove the
subjectivity from subjective phenomena and then proudly proclaim that
there is nothing left, the emperor has no clothes! When you tossed aside
the subject of inquiry before you started.
