Aha! Bill Clinton is a Level-3 mind: truth or pretense, bah! Whatever
Ahem, anyway - I do find with staggering frequency that it is "useful"
know whether or not certain concepts are true. Although - I like how
relates to the "God meme": the Level-3 mind doesn't much care whether
or not there is a god. Then again, all the True Level-3 minds are
surely living
in small huts on the plateaus of Tibet, and are totally unconcerned with
whole concept of "memetics" in the first place.
