Many models of of memesinthemind offer us memes we have no choice over.
Yours is a somewhat untenable, and certainly unprovable, position
regarding choice. Like I said earlier, if we all choose, and only choose
what we choose, every performance would be perfect. We are not in
control of many things, and the mind's processes are one of them, and
performance is absolutely one of the things we are not in control over,
to any degree of absolution.
