    Maybe that is what we have got Joe, a 'postmodern civilisation'; everyone defines their own; everyone doubts the Grand-narratives. But, at the same time, everyone is civilised too. To think that this blissful state of affairs could be jeopardised by 'a violently cannibalistic medieval memeset', it's tragic. Now is that a medieval memeset that violently devours other medieval memesets, or just other memesets in general? And Joe, have you considered the effect, on existing civilisations, of allowing a new violently cannibalistic memeset to have political and economic dictatorship of the planet? Jeremy
