I've been saying, memetically, there is no `self' for a while on the
ML. I think its something we tacitly take on when discussing
memetics. Memetics, in a very stark light, is very good at
depersonifying people. You look and are confronted with nothing but
complexly associating cellular automata which function together to
present a (mostly) coherent face to the world.
