    Due to the gravity of the situation, that makes no sense to me, qua
    gravity. As a physical fact of the universe, there is no shaping it,
    there is only dealing with it.

    There is no conceptualization possible of a universal fact.

    Regardless of what shape you _want_ it to be, it only comes in one size.
    Unless your concept of this fact (as I've stated a thousand times) is
    erroneous, in which case it has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact,
    and everything to do with the concept.

    So, what's a fact got to do with memetics?

    Nothin', brudda.
